4 miles this morning around Ivins. Back to the early runs now that school starts today.

8.2 miles in the hot afternoon. I ran with some of the girls today to give them a little bit of a push. I was happyw with what they did. We looped around Webb Hill. I then tacked on a few miles after practice. Very hot today. Yikes!

15 miles this morning with Clyde. We were planning on doing tempo but the body did not want anything to do with it. The nice thing was that Clyde felt the same way. We pushed a little bit but nothing fancy. Just over 7:00/mile overall. We were both pretty thirsty after wards. He was gracious enough to make me a refreshing drink.

3 miles this afternoon. I did the warm up and cool down with everyone but also did a few repeats with the boys. It was hot out but the team had a great workout today. Very happy about that.

3 miles this morning over to The Spectrum with the kids. We are having a great turnout for the morning practices. 

7.10 miles in the afternoon with the team. I ran with the boys out along the Arizona Strip. Yes, it was really hot but they did well. I cannot believe how hot it is this week. I hope it cools down soon.

3 miles in the morning with the team.

5 miles this afternoon which included doing some of the speed workout on the track with the team. We did a couple 1000s and 200s to get the legs moving. The team keeps getting stronger and stronger each day. Another scorcher!

10 miles with the club tonight. Ran with Mike, Dustin, Billy, Clyde, and Aaron. A really hot run. Kept it easy for the first little bit and then picked it up at the end with Aaron. Solid day of running. I am tired now.

Easy 3 miles this afternoon with the kids. It was one of those days. I survived the first week of school which made me happy. Happy to have the weekend. It has been a crazy hot week here in the STG.

Up at 3:45 to start the run at 4:15 with Clyde and Aaron at Clyde's house. We went over to the Bloomington Loop for 9 miles and then came back the same way. It was nice and "cool" that early with the temps right at 84 degrees. We kept the pace honest and ended up averaging 6:44/mile. Had to be done early due to the cross country meet. The team did well today. I am happy with what I am seeing. Slowly getting better each week.
