Previous week

Really good runs for the first week. There were a few I had to work for, but those are the best ones. I really liked Friday's trail/fast run with the boys. Dylan showed promise with his blogging, so I hope he keeps that up. No injuries or anything to worry about

This week

Weights starts this week on Tuesday. I'm gonna try to record it all on the blog. Minutes jump this week. The middle portion of runs could get me; anyone can start or finish a run. I'll focus on breathing and being relaxed during the middle part of runs, especially the 70 minutes on Wednesday. Should be good!

In all honesty, I don't consider today's run to be a great one for me. We had 20 warm, then 25 at 1 min behind 5K pace on the dirt mile. I struggled with it. We had a big pack of guys for 2 miles then we started the fall off. Starting the third lap, I got a bunch of those dry throw-up things going on. I stopped for about a minute to let them stop, then took it the rest of the mile and finished at 20 minutes of the proposed pace. It was alright, but I know I can do more. Next tempo, I'm in there for the long haul.

Road/grass. The grass was freaking freezing! My Ultimate team won. That's pretty much it for today. Should be a nice run tomorrow

I thought the long run this week was today, but I was apparently mistaken. We took an out and back along the road to the dinosaur tracks trail. Everything went well, and it's always awesome when, for about two minutes, I really struggle. It makes me commit, which is something everyone needs work on. I actually don't have a long run tomorrow because I have a half marathon this weekend. Coach, if you read this, comment how many minutes I should run tomorrow. If not, I'm gonna take it 35-40.

Took it nice a early up Sandia Rd. It was a quick pace, but it felt really good the whole time. Really nice temperature

We're up in Ephraim at youth conference, so we got a group and ran this morning; there were a few D-hills guys. I didn't go the full 60 just because I'm gonna be going wayyyy over tomorrow. It felt really nice this morning in the brisk, morning air. Really excited for tomorrow. Not gonna kill myself, but I'm gonna try to get a decent time. It's really pretty country over here.

This was the hardest thing I've ever done. I would highly recommend this race for someone that wants a challenge. I would definitely equate it to a regular, road marathon. I was pretty satisfied with the time because of how hard the race was. I honestly felt pretty good for most of the race, but around mile 11, I was ready to be done. It had a ton of uphill. I'm feeling pretty crappy at the moment, but I'll get better. Overall, decent day.
