6 miles this morning in 2-3 inches of snow.  Yes, it snowed in St. George.  It was pretty fun running in this kind of weather.  I don't get many opportunities to do this.

6.15 miles over into Santa Clara and back.  I was relaxed on the run until a pitbull starting chasing me from someone's house.  I went anaerobic for a while just to make sure I didn't get eaten.  I was upset because the owners didn't even do anything.  I averaged 6:07/mile.  Yes, I was not very happy.

4 miles in the cold morning.  It was really chilly but glad to get a run in.

8.60 miles this afternoon.  I hurried home today and did a speed workout from my house over through Santa Clara.  The plan was to do 1 mile easy and then 1 mile hard.  I wanted to hit the faster mile under 5:20 pace.  My splits were 5:13, 5:10, 5:19, and 5:19.  The last two were on a slit up hill but I pushed through it.  I averaged 5:56/mile for the entire run.  Nice to get a solid workout in.

Cool down around the neighborhood after wards.

Slept in this morning because I was up late with Katey's brother and wife playing games.  Plus it was too cold.

I ran with the kids this afternoon.  We looped around Webb Hill and then I tacked on a few more miles after wards.  7:14/mile overall.  A great way to end the day.

Slept in again so I ran 5 miles before the club run and then 8.60 miles with the guys.  We went and assessed the damage of the trail from the flood.  Absolutely incredible that the trail is completely gone in some sections.  Decent pace throughout and averaged 6:44/mile.  Nice afternoon.

Ran a few miles with some of the kids this afternoon over to Hidden Valley and then went down the golf course to add on a few more.  It was a great day for running.  7:05/mile.

Ran with Dave, Steve, Aaron, and Clyde this morning while learning the new SG Half Course.  It is a nice loop course and is pancake flat.  We kept it relaxed on the first loop and then did the 2nd loop quicker.  A couple miles at the end right around 5:30/mile.  6:28/mile for the entire run.  Good to run with the guys again.  A little chilly though.

Solid week and feeling stronger everyday.  Yeah!!!
