Always hard to be away from the TEAM but it is what we have to do.</p> <p>I drove up to Cedar this morning and ran with one of the all-time greats, Sage Ducote. He took me up on Cedar Mountain and we ran the Kolob Terrace Road. It was 9,000+ feet and had lots of big, rolling hills. The scenery, temps, and all the deer made it worthwhile. We ended up running 12 miles total at 7:09/mile. I definitely felt the elevation but it was still amazing. Lots of fun running with Sage this morning and catching up. He is a great young man and I thoroughly enjoyed coaching him.</p> <p>3 miles this afternoon.</p> Mon, 02 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 30, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-30-2018.html <p>Met up with Aaron this morning for a run. We met up at the Desert Garden up on the Red Hills Parkway. We went from the Parkway to Dixie Downs, down along Dixie Dr., up around Bloomington, back down along the River Trail to River Road, and then back up to the Desert Garden.</p> <p>I went to Matilda last night with the kids at Tuacahn so I didn&#39;t get home until really late. I was running on about 4 1/2 hours of sleep. Legs were tired from lack of sleep. Kept it honest the first 11 miles with Aaron averaging 6:35/mile for the first 11. We stopped for some water and I told Aaron I need to be smart and ease off the throttle a bit. Finished up with squishy shoes and 18.25 miles total at a 6:51/mile average.&nbsp;</p> <p>Solid finish to the week. The conference threw a wrench into some running but I am excited to get out of the heat for a week and run up in Huntsville for a week.&nbsp;</p> <p>Loving life and loving coaching some great kids.</p> Sat, 30 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 29, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-29-2018.html <p>A couple miles before practice at BHNP and then did a Fartlek run with the girls. Nice to get some small hills and speed mixed in. The girls are locked in right now. 8.25 miles total this morning.</p> <p>Another long day at the Leadership Conference. I am learning lots of great stuff though.</p> Fri, 29 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 28, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-28-2018.html <p>Ran from the house out towards SunRiver and back. Had to go early due to the Leadership Conference again. 7:01/mile. Felt very relaxed and strong. 12.1 miles total.</p> Thu, 28 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 27, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-27-2018.html <p>Another Tempo Run out in Warner Valley. I hopped in with some of the younger boys working towards a Varsity spot to make sure they ran it correct. 15 minutes between 6:15-6:30/mile. They ran it much better today. Lots of bright spots.</p> <p>Conference for the rest of the day and night. Got home late.</p> Wed, 27 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 26, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-26-2018.html <p>8.5 total miles this morning.

Legs were still sore from Saturday&#39;s workout. Went to Webb Hill and did 1:00min. repeats. Nobody threw up today. Positive sign.</p> <p>6 more miles in the hot sauna. 104 degrees around Bloomington. Slight breeze helped a ton.</p> Mon, 25 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 23, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-23-2018.html <p>16.5 miles total down the marathon course with Aaron this morning. Worked into a nice clip and then did 5 miles with a goal between 5:30-5:40/mile. I ran 5:31, 5:33, 5:30, 5:33, 5:31. I eased off the throttle a little for a mile and then finished with 8x100m strides at the end of the run. 6:16/mile overall. Felt really good. Lots of confidence as I prep for the Bryce Canyon Half in a couple weeks.</p> <p>Another solid week. Happy with how things are going.</p> Sat, 23 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 22, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-22-2018.html <p>5.5 miles total at Little Valley Park. Little Fartlek workout the TEAM today. The grass on the new section is like golf course grass. Amazing. The sprinklers were on and it helped a lot.</p> <p>3.5 more miles from the high school to my parent&#39;s house and then immediately into the pool. 105 degrees.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 22 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 21, 2018 http://logan.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-21-2018.html <p>Nice long Adventure run off Navajo Dr. with the boys today. 10 total miles.
