I ran out past Mini GU via canal road I felt pretty good going out but then I was fighting a head wind the whole way back and didn't feel quite as good... But it was a nice day and I was glad to be out. My average pace was 8:32 with my total time at 1:00:32, my HR average was 149 I think that reflected the wind on the way back the higher heart rate... I hope to get a few more runs in before the race on Saturday, mostly easy. It will be interesting to see how I do...  I feel like I'm in better shape than last year but I don't think I've run as much,  I guess I'll see.

 

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past the old Barn via canal road, I kept the pace real easy. My average pace was 8:55 with my total time at 36:28, my HR average was 139. My legs are just feeling dead so I will run real light for the rest of the week in preparation for the Spectrum 10K, I know I shouldn't taper for a 10K but my body is old and needs time to recover. I would like to PR on Saturday and I can't do that with out some recovery, my body won't respond if I don't.

Its Heck to be old!

See ya tomorrow.

Just chilling by the pool in good old St. George Utah! No running today just taking it easy so I can give it a good effort tomorrow at the Spectrum 10K! I haven't run a whole lot this week I'm just trying to get some of the soreness out of my muscles because next week I will start building up for the Utah Valley Marathon so I am trying to take it easier this week.

See ya tomorrow after the race.

I ran the spectrum 10K today in SG, I felt pretty good for the most part and I'll have to check but I think I PR'd from last year. I pushed the downhill pretty hard, probably a little to hard, but hey its a 10K so you have to give it all you've got!

Here are my splits:

1. 6:31(149) Downhill

2. 7:11(161) uphill and downhill.

3. 6:58(161) Some up hill but mostly downhill

4. 7:06(164) uphill to start then down hill.

5. 7:26(167) Uphill and I'm starting to feel it pretty good but just trying to hang on.

6. 7:31(172) I was not feeling very good on this one and I was a little disappointed but I picked it up on the last bit.

.20 6:23(176) Pushed it hard at the end, at least hard for me.

If anything it was a good speed work out and some downhill training as well.

 

My son Ethan did really good 42:01 and took 3rd in his age group, and he realized that he needs more mileage and speed training to get where he wants to be, but I am I proud of him! He has some talent if he will only realize his potential, its hard to get him to take chances...

It was a PR from Last years race, I'll have to check the offical results to see if its a distance PR.

See ya Monday.
