I was a little disappointed in this race but after thinking through things and looking back on my blog the last 4 years I haven't been as consistent with my running as I had prior to 2015. I have been more consistent since April but I think the damaged had all ready been done from the previous years of falling off my trianing. Next year there will be no races two Months out from STG as well, I think the Nebo Half wrecked me pretty good and even though I did have a PR I just never got my legs back in time for the marathon I think. So, More Conistent through the winter I want to get a steady dose of 40 mile weeks, once I'm recovered from St George. My time was alot improved from last years and if I can do the same thing this next year then I should be right where I need to be. Splits are below.

1. 8:05 just right.

2. 8:14 Still okay.

3. 7:46 To fast.

4. 7:52 Still to fast.

5. 7:55 Better.

6. 7:41 Way to Fast!

7. 7:35 Just Stupid.

8. 9:02 Veyo. Just eased up it.

9. 8:31 feeling tired.

10 8:20 Trying to stay with it Mentally.

11. 8:49 Lossing the battle.

12 8:37 Trying to get back on track.

13. 7:56 Doing better.

14. 8:41 Struggling again.

15 7:51 Trying to stay with it.

16. 8:23 Feeling tired.

17. 7:59 Not giving up.

18. 8:37 Crashing!

19. 10:03 See Mile 18!

20. 9:35 Bumbbling.

21. 8:44 Trying to get bacxk on track but my legs aren't having it.

22. 10:05 Walking some here.

23. 9:17 trying real hard.

24. 9:17 Still trying hard!

25. Walking again.

26. Walking until the last turn for the finish line.

.30 Told myself to not walk no matter what.

My time was 25 minutes better than last year so I just need to do the same for next year and I'll bee right there.

See you later.
