3 easy miles this morning with the team.

Helped some of the girls out with the dirt hill repeats today. Did the first 3 with them and then hopped in with the boys for their last couple. It was really hot today and I felt bad for the kids. I wish they didn't have to train in such hot weather sometimes. Finished with 4x200m finishes and focused on my form.

2 miles before the the Big Boy run this morning. Another 10 with Bill and Clyde. Clyde's wonderful biking stories make me never want to get into the sport. It seems like too much of a hassle. Maybe when my legs stop moving I will buy a trike.

3 more miles to Hidden Valley with the team in the morning.

5 easy miles out on the trails with the team. Another hot one.

In order to give the team a break from the heat we did the workout in the morning. We did 5x1 mile repeats at BHNP. Josh pulled me along for the first couple and then I came back with the next group of boys. Solid workout from everyone. 8 miles total.

The weather was nice this afternoon because it was overcast and the temps were cooler. It was actually perfect running weather. I took a few boys down to the park and did the same work out with them since they had driver's ed. this morning. Very impressed with how they ran. Pace was a touch slower which helped but I was really tired tonight. Another 8 miles total.

Up bright and early for this run. I wish I had more time but needed to be back to the school by 6:30am to head to the meet in Cedar.

I started at the high school and then ran out towards the airport. Pretty muggy this morning which was not how I wanted it. It rain a little on me though so that helped. I pushed the last 4 miles back to the school in 5:32, 5:30, 5:34, and 5:28. Solid little push to end the run. Happy with this run even though I wish I could have gone a little longer.

Team did very well at the meet today and I am encouraged to see how they continue to progress. We still have lots of work to do but we are moving in the right direction. Hopefully everyone can stay healthy.
