4 miles before practice which included a not so fun stop due to eating some potato salad yesterday.  Literally sweating bullets.

6.50 miles with the boys at practice.  Decent pace at 7:21/mile.

Another easy 4 miles this afternoon around the neighborhood.  Not as hot so it felt nice.

Met up with Clyde, Dave, and Steve at 5am to get our workout in.  We did the same loop as last week.  We did a 3 mile warm up and then did 5 miles at Tinman pace down towards the Dixie Center and then back into Bloomington Hills.  We went a little faster than Tinman and I averaged 5:46/mile.  We then cooled down back to Clyde's house.  It was a good workout to get in.

I did 4.5 miles with the girls at practice.  It felt great to not goes as fast with the extra miles for this morning.

Starting running a little before practice and saw Clyde on his run so I joined him for a couple miles.  Went with the boys from Little Valley over to Hidden Valley Park.  Pushed the hills a bit.  Nice run overall though.  The weather was cool which felt really nice.  Below 70 degrees at the start of the run.  

Another 4 miles around Ivins.  Slight breeze only made the heat feel warmer on my body.  Getting miles in though.

Ran 2.5 miles around Little Valley before practice started.  I then ran 5.5 miles barefoot in the grass.  I had the team do pick ups within the run.  It was fun running barefoot.  I don't usually do it.  Looking forward to the club run tonight.

Club run tonight at the DC.  It was fun running with everyone.  Hayden came with us for one final run before he heads out on his mission next week.  We did the Bloomington Loop backwards and pushed the last couple miles at half marathon pace.  Nice end to the day.

Ran 6.5 miles before practice while doing 4.5 of them with Clyde.  It was 80 degrees this morning so it wasn't that cool.  Bummer.  I decided to give the kids an easy day since they have been working really hard.  Probably will be done for the day now.

I ran with Clyde, James, Dave, Mike, and his buddy this morning.  We started out at 5am and it was already 88 degrees a little humid.  Yuck!  We ran from Clyde's down to the AZ border and along the Corridor, up the river trail along Sun River to Bloomington and through Bloomington Hills back.  After a 6 mile warm up we ran a 6 mile progression that started just above Tinman pace and ended just below it.  After that we limped our way back to Clyde's house.  It was good to get some faster miles in but it was way to hot today.  Glad to have this run over with.

Another solid week in the books.  Happy to be feeling healthy again and getting in some good training.
