A really bad case of the Mondays. Ran the warm up with the team and then kept track of them on the Vo2 max test.

Plyometrics and Tabatta were combined today.

Another Tempo Tuesday run with the guys. It has been nice having James out with us. He is doing really well. I had the mindset of just easing into the 8 mile tempo section. The temps were a little cooler which actually made it quite nice. I just tried to stay relaxed and not overdo it. I ended up hitting the 8 mile section with a 5:43/mile average. Nothing spectacular but it was nice to get a decent workout in after being sick for close to a month. Hope to move forward from this. 14.5 miles total.

7 mile trail run out by Ft. Pierce today. Ran with the girls which was nice. Had to get home for Norah's birthday. I cannot believe she is 4 years old.

Went and ran with Clyde this morning. 10.2 mile usual loop. Nothing spectacular but great conversation. I am excited to see what the STG boys will do this weekend. Also discussed poor decisions some youth make these days which greatly influences what happens in the future.

7 miles total this afternoon with the boys. We ran at the DC for our 15 minute tempo run. Ran with Dallin and Sage today anywhere between 5:45-5:50 pace. The team did great for this tempo run. Hope they continue to move forward. Happy with the early season progress.

6 miles this morning. Same route as yesterday. The last 2 miles I did a little Fartlek workout between streets. This helped break it up a little bit. Good to get some turnover in the legs.

3 more miles this afternoon. 2 mile warm up with the team and then timed them on their workout. 1 mile cool down after wards. Drove to Claremont, CA for the USATF Level 1 Coaches Certification. My Dad was really nice to drive down with me.

Ran from the hotel in California this morning up into Rancho Cucamonga. Really nice place. Nice running lane on the road. Kept it relaxed on the first 5 and then did kind of mini progression run on the way back. Felt decent even though I was really tired still from the drive.

13.5 hours in this USATF Level 1 class. Loads of good information.

Decent week but need to keep moving in the right direction.
