8 miles in the morning.

15.50 miles in the afternoon and early evening.

I was not feeling up to going outside so I hopped on the treadmill and did 8 easy miles at 6:18/mile pace overall.  I'm sure I will have a big workout tonight with Paul Pilkington up at Weber State.

I ran an easy 5.5 miles with the track team this afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it.  The sun was hot and I actually had to many layers of clothes on.  I think this is the first time I have said that this year.  I then went up to Weber for the big workout.  I started with a 3 mile warm-up and then did 4x 1600m right at 5:00/mile pace.  I hit 4:57, 4:58, 4:58, and 5:01 for the miles and then did 4x 400m at :67, :68, :68, and :68 for the four of them.  I finished up with a 2 mile cooldown.  I was happy with the workout.  I thought it was going to be much longer but the body felt fine afterwards.  Just a little fatigued.

Total Distance

8 miles on the treadmill.

12 miles in the afternoon.

I hit the fun treadmill and did 8 miles at 6:00/mile pace overall.  I am looking forward to much warmer weather here in the near future.

Today was the first time in a long time where I didn't have to wear my tights or extra clothing. It was a balmy 43 degrees! My pasty white legs need the sun. I ran an easy 3 miles with the track team and then had them do 6x200m at a moderate pace. I could tell pretty quick that some of the them haven't done any interval work on a track for a while. Once the weather gets warmer it should help them out a lot. After practice, I ran another 9 miles around the wonderful city of Plain City. I averaged 6:30/mile overall. It felt great running in warm weather and hearing all the birds singing. Spring is just around the corner!!!

Same run as yesterday!  Nothing to exciting.

This afternoon was crazy with all of the wind and snow.  I walked out to my car before practice and almost got blown over.  Katey thinks I am too skinny and need to eat more so I don't fall over!  I had the track team do some running inside today.  They were grateful.  I went home and took an hour nap.  It was much needed.  I hopped on the treadmill due to all of the crazy weather outside.  I did 5 miles at 6:00/mile pace and then did a 5 mile tempo run (5:19/mile overall).  I then finished up with a 2.5 cooldown.  Please bring back the spring weather.

13.15 miles in the morning.

7.05 miles in the evening.

I got up a little earlier than usual and ran a half marathon on the old treadmill.  I averaged 6:00/mile pace overall.  I am heading up to Pocatello for the Simplot Games so I hope I can squeeze some runs in while I am up there.  It should be pretty fun.  Their will be some great athletes up there.

I drove up some kids to Pocatello for Simplot.  It was a pretty quick drive.  The track is sweet.  It has banked corners which makes running on it quite interesting.  I was going to do the coaches mile but was not able to get in.  Bummer!  We were there most of the afternoon but I had some time this evening to run just over 7 miles on the treadmill.  The weather is a little extra chilly with all of the wind.  I might go outside in the morning.  We shall see.

7.10 miles in the evening.

I woke up really early to get my run in this morning.  I was going to go outside but the weather was extremely cold and it was a touch windy still.  I jumped on the treadmill at the hotel and did just over a half marathon.  I slowed the pace down a little because I was a touch sore.  I had a guy come in and run on the other treadmill.  He flipped the TV to the Stock Market channel.  I am not into numbers or stocks so it was half an hour of torture.  Life goes on I guess. 

We were at the track meet for the entire day.  We had some runners, jumpers, and throwers make the finals tomorrow so that is exciting.  It was cool today because they had past Olympians come and wave to the crowd.  Billy Mills was there.  It was neat seeing him.  I had a break in the afternoon and spent it with Katey when she drove up from Logan.  I then did another 7.10 miles to be done for the day.  I am pretty tired tonight. 

Total Distance

6 miles in the morning.

I didn't have much time today due to the final day at Simplot.  I got an easy 6 miles in and was alright with late.  I ended up getting home later than expected so I didn't run in the afternoon.  I ended up taking a 3 hour nap.  I must have been tired!
