Teacher prep day but I was sicker than a dog so no run today. I did get a lot of work done at school though. I think I am ready the 2nd semester.

No baby yet!

8 miles in the morning.

6 miles in the afternoon.

Nice 5am run this morning out along Snow Canyon Parkway.  Kept it nice and relaxed.  The weather felt a little warm that early.  Still hacking up yuck from the sickness.

Did a few uptempo miles this afternoon (around 6:30ish pace).  Got home and went over to my parents house to do a little Wii Fit.  New record on hula hoops!

Still no baby!  I guess we have a little time until the due date of January 13th.

Ran from Desert Hills High all the way home to Ivins.  I felt great during the entire run except for the last 2 or so miles.  My body completely shut down.  I don't know if it was from being sick or if it was from the "worry" of not having the baby yet.  I survived and that is all that matters.

Good to have a long run in today.

6 miles in the morning.

7 miles in the afternoon.

I did another nice and easy run this morning over into Santa Clara.  Nice to get out early without all of the crazy traffic.

I started at the high school this afternoon and then went out along the Arizona strip.  On the way back I did half mile surges which ranged from 5:55-6:20ish pace.  I am slowly starting to once again incorporate some speed work now my body is feeling good.  Felt much better today.  Planning on a shorter run tomorrow and then a really long run for Saturday.

Went and ran the Utah hill loop 2 times this morning with Clyde and Steve. Bill joined us on the first lap.  It was a perfect day for running here in St. George.  Nothing but blue skies and perfect temps.  Felt good after the 2 loops but I started to have some stomach issues during the last 2 miles.  That was the only thing that bothered me on this run.  I am very happy to have this run done.  We ran this right around 4 hours which included bathroom breaks and getting fluids.  Not bad considering how many hills are on this route.  Great way to finish off the week.

Still no baby!!
