Slept in this morning and just ran this afternoon.  I ran from the high school out towards George Washington.  I pushed the pace because I needed to get back for a conference call with Utah State.  I have a student teacher in my classroom for the next little bit.  It should be kind of fun.  8 miles at 6:03/mile.  Nice start to the week.

6 miles in the morning.  Ran into Santa Clara and back.  Kept it nice and relaxed.

6 miles in the afternoon with some of the kids after school.  The sun decided to stay away today so it was really cold.  We did 6 x 100m strides at the end.

I was not feeling that great this morning so I slept in.  My stomach was acting up during the day and I felt like I was going to get sick.  I was a little worried but ended up running with the kids this afternoon and started feeling much better.  We did 8 miles out towards George Washington at 7:07 per mile.  Glad that I am feeling better.  Hopefully I do not get sick.

6 miles in the morning over into Santa Clara and back.

6.10 miles in the afternoon with the boys.  We did the opposite route of Webb Hill and ended up doing 7:05/mile.  Warmer weather today.

9.30 miles during the club run.  Okay run with the guys.  The pace picked up at the end and I just wanted feeling it for some reason.  Hit 6:26/mile.  Probably too many miles today.  It happens.

6 miles this afternoon with some more of the boys.  It was 60 degrees and felt great today.  The extra long sweat ring on the shirt grossed them out and let me know it hasn't been this warm for a little while.  Took it out along River Rd. through the Industrial Park.  I wasn't able to see the new airport though.

I now am the proud father a one year old.  We celebrated Norah's birthday today.  Crazy it has been a full year since she was born.

Ran with everyone this morning at the DC doing the St. George Half Course.  Temps were a little warmer which made the run quite nice.  We kept the first loop fairly easy and then slowly did a mini progression run the last couple miles.  I pushed the end with Aaron and hit some fast miles.  6:38/mile.  Decent way to finish the week.  Nice to be running with the guys on a Saturday morning.
