I ran after work today and I started off by running a few miles with the kids and then I ran 4 more on my own, I ran out towards Payson for the most part and out past the stake center. My average pace for the run was 8:30 with a total time of 52:31, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then some push-ups it was a good start to the week. I am running the Spectrum 10K this Saturday and my son Ethan is running it with me, or should I say he's running the same race but he will be way faster than me!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran in the afternoon and I ran out past Mini GU and then back to the house, I felt pretty good today for a change I just tried to work on my form and it went really well. My average pace was 8:20 with a total time of 51:05, it was a pretty nice day and I just really enjoyed the sun and nice weather for a change. After the run I had to hurry and get cleaned up cuz Ethan was playing East high school today in Soccer. Both games ended in a tie it was fun to watch.

See ya tomorrow.

I worked from home for most of the day today and I was able to get out around 3 or so and I ran out towards Payson Park but I cut out the rollers, I just wasn't feeling it today my form seemed labored and it was just a tough run. My average pace was 8:31 with a total time of 53:10, I hadn't really had anything to eat all day so maybe that was why it was so hard today, I sure felt great yesterday, oh well... After the run I did my standard upper body weight training and then I finiahed up with some push-ups, I'm glad to be done today!!!

See ya tomorow.

I didn't run yesterday so I decided to shake out the old legs for the Spectrum 10K tomorrow so I ran out towards Payson along canal road, I just kept the pace nice and smooth and tried not to push it to much. My back is still a little bit of a bother but tolerable. My average pace was 8:42 with a total time of 35:19, I probably wont head down to St Goerge until later today I have a few things I need to do before I leave. I don't know if Ethan will be coming with me or not so I might be a loner on this one as my wife is with her Cheer team in California for nationals. Ethan is in full soccer mode and I can' get him to get excited about running right now. Oh well, thats how it goes sometimes.

See ya tomorrow.

So I ran the Spectrum 10 K this morning and it was an eventful day to say the least and that had nothing to do with the race. I was a minute slower than last year mainly becuase I let a couple of miles get a way from me and I lost concentration. I felt pretty good for the most part but I realized going in that I hadn't had as much training as last year, mainly do to the hard winter and motivation issues, but I still surprised myself.

My mile splits went like this:

1.6:57 Downhill big time

2. 7:20 lost it a little here for some reason.

3. 7:02 back on track.

4. 7:09 still ok.

5. 7:37 another hard to explain mile, lost concentration again!

6. 7:29 still a little out of it.

.20 1:19 better average pace for this was 6:27 so I was basically giving it all I had.

Miles 2, 5, 6 were hard to explain, I just can't figure out what happened on those. Oh well, I still feel like I had a good race even though the time was slower, but hey I qualified for the SGM so all is good. It seemes like the course was a little long but I could be wrong... 6.20 even on my watch. My average pace was 7:14

So after the race I go to get my truck key, GONE, no where to be found! So we head back up to the start and can't see anything there, so then I call the Dodge dealership and they hook me up with a guy who can get me a knew one but they want a fortune! So while I was waiting for that guy to show up, I don't ever think he was actually coming, I realized that I hadn't left me phone number with anybody in case it gets turned in. So, I send an e-mail to Aaron and low in behold with in a couple of minutes he calls me and says he has my key! Thank the lord! So I ended up getting home about three hours later than I was suppose to. Thank you to who ever turned that darn thing in, I guess someone picked it up on the trail. I'm surprised I didn't hear it drop,  this was the one race that I didn't have music in my ear. Go figure! Thanks to My Brother Curtis and Nephew Bryan for helping me look and carting me around all over, without them I don't know where I would have been!

See ya Monday.
