After work tonight I ran the Payson Park Loop but I cut out the rollers, I didn't feel good at first but after the old body loosened up I felt pretty good for the rest of the run. I was able to get in a pretty good rhythm, mile 4 was 7:48 and I didn't feel like I was working hard at all so I made sure I throttled it back a bit after that, I want to take it pretty easy up until the race on Saturday. My average pace was 8:25 with a total time of 52:36, after the run I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups. Good run today and I'm glad I got out!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU corner and then back to the house, felt pretty crappy the whole way today just could never get loosened up. I have to take the good with the bad, yesterday was a good run today not so good, that's what I like about running you never know what your going to get:) My average pace was slow at 8:55 with a total time of 54:29, it was another great day weather wise, I was able to wear shorts again so that was good.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work today and I just went out past the stake center via Canal road, it was sure a nice day with the sunshine on my shoulders. I kept the pace pretty easy and just enjoyed the day, average pace was 8:34 with a total time of 35:07, I will probably run a few tomorrow before we head down to ST George I just want to keep the legs loose.

See ya tomorrow.

I really had a great race. I will give details later. I had a 3 minute PR from last years race so pretty darn happy!

Details to come later...

Details.

I staretd off a little fast fir the first mile so i backed off a bit and it seemed to work, here are my splits.

1. 7:33 way to fast so I backed off a little.

2. 7:50 with a little uphill much better pace for my fitness level.

3. 7:53 this is a better pace for me, but I wanted around 7:50.

4. 7:45 feeling pretty good and just trying to bale hay so to speak.

5. 7:50 good.

6.  7:56 this is always a tough part of the course for me mentally,  these darn rollers.

7. 7:56 trying to stay with it mentally.

8.  7:25 pushed the hill pretty good here and I thought "Are you crazy" but I was feeling pretty good so I went with it.

9. 7:39 still hanging in there.

10. 7:42 feeling okay and thinking about a possible PR but trying to focus on the mile at hand.

11. 7:45 feeling a little tired but just trying to get to the barn.

12. 7:44 hanging in there.

13. 7:34 during this mile I realized that I might be able to break 1:40 so I picked it up a bit.

.10 7:04 giving it all i got but just missed sub 1:40.

I am really happy with this race and so Happy to get  a 3 minute course  PR, everything felt pretty good, my abdominal was a little bit of a bother but didn't really get any worse so I just went with it. It was a great day too for my Son Ethan who ran his first half marathon today and he ran a 1:33:00, he hasn't ran hardly at all since cross country and he had no long runs at all. I am really proud of him and it would be cool to see what he could do with some serious training under his belt, he finsihed 4th in his age which he was excited about!

Update with Offical time and place; 169th overall and 9th in age with a time of 1:40:34

Great day!

See ya Monday.
