Met up for practice this morning with the team. 7 miles total. Warm up and then did 8x1:00min. hard/1:00min. easy with Courtney. Cooled down back to the school. Nice loop from the school up to 2450. Core afterwards.

6 miles pushing Oliver in the jogging stroller this afternoon. The wind didn't make it easy. Fun to get him out though. He loves it!

Ran from the house out along Snow Canyon Parkway. The wind made it a little chilly. Just locked in and kept it controlled. 6:44/mile overall. Core and stretch after wards.

Daddy/daughter date this afternoon. More important than a 2nd run.

Met up with the team for the workout. Ran with the boys today. 2 mile warm up, 1:1, 2:2, 3:3, 4:4, 4:4, 3:3, 2:2, 1:1 (Fartlek run), cool down back to the school. Very good workout considering much of this is rolling or up hill along the golf course. The boys were moving. Glad this old guy could hang on for a little bit of it. Core and stretch after wards. Ran an extra 2 miles with some of the guy after practice to get 10 for the morning. Solid workout that needs to be done again.

Pushed Oliver and Norah in the double wide this afternoon to the park. Nice and windy made it quite a memorable run. Fun to spend time with the kiddos though.

Ran from the house out through Kayenta and then to the Shivwits Reservation. Overcast and slight breeze made for a great run. Kept it nice and relaxed. It has been a while since I have been out that way. 6:57/mile overall.

Listened to my iPod shuffle while on this run. I haven't listened to music on a run for probably 2 years. I realized this due to the music I was listening to. Older stuff.

10 miles total this morning with the team. Warm up and then did 10x:30sec. hard/:30sec. easy and then cool down. Decent turnover for the short amount of time. Decent week of running with the kids. Lots of them are gone on vacation so I am excited for everyone to get back on to a regular routine next week.

Met up with Steve, Clyde, and Dave and Steve's house for a trail run. It was fun meeting up with the 435ers. I really enjoy running on the Zen Trail. It is a lot of fun. Bear Claw Poppy Trail. Not so much fun. The trail was all marked up because of a mountain bike race. Two jerk bikers looked at as funny and said, "Do you guys know their is a bike race going?" We didn't see any bikers and were done well before the race started. Bikers drive me up the wall sometimes. Sorry Clyde.

I felt frisky the whole run for some reason. It was a beautiful day and I was happy to be out with the guys. Ended up doing 2 more miles at the end to get 80 miles for the week. Solid week during Spring Break. Happy to get back into a regular routine again starting Monday.
