10 miles in the morning.

13.15 miles in the evening.

I did an out and back to Red Mountain Spa.  Lots of people were on the parkway this morning.  I love seeing people out and about.  It makes me very happy.  Kept it nice and relaxed.  Good start to the week.  Hill repeats tonight!

I went out to Desert Hills High and ran 3.15 miles out on the dirt trails.  I am looking for various routes for the upcoming cross country season.  There are a variety of routes to run on which makes me very excited.  I then met up with everyone at the Dixie Center for our big workout.  We had the usual faces with 2 new additions (Joe and Eric Larsen).  It was good to have fresh faces.  We did 3x up Webb Hill.  It is about .92 up and the same back down.  I wasn't feeling that great after the first one and I know the reason why.  I threw up my dinner twice and was really dehydrated!  I had eaten some salad a little earlier and it did not sit well.  The second repeat was a little better but I threw up more time at the start of the third repeat.  I pushed threw it and was very happy I did.  I drank plenty of water once I got back to the car.  10 miles total for the club run. 

I think Clyde is calling the hill repeat workout "Meat Grinder Mondays."  I think that is a perfect name for it.
