I ran after work today, I'm feeling a little better from my cold but still not great but I felt like I had to get out today. I ran 4 miles and then I meet my Nephew Jake at my house because he wanted to run a few miles, so we ran out past the old barn and then back to the house. It was pretty windy so it was a struggle at times but we kept the pace honest and just did our best. My average pace was 8:19 with a total time of 50:42, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. I felt pretty darn good today, still a little weak from my cold but pretty darn good.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran with my two nephews, Jake and Jeff, we ran out past the stake center and out to the "T" in the road and then back to the house. My legs are feeling pretty good right no for some reason , they seem to want to run but I have been holding them back as not to over do it, after dropping them off I ran out to the old barn on canal road and then back to the house to tack on a few more. My average pace was 8:13 with a total time of 45:28, I hope my legs stay like they are now, ready to run, I would like to have a good race on Saturday even though I've been a little lazy as of late.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Spectrum 10K this morning down in St George, it was a beautiful morning and conditions were perfect. I warmed up for about 10 minutes before the race and then the gun went off.

Mile 1. 6:39 Way to fast and I do this every year...

Mile 2. 7:04 this is more like it. Feeling okay.

Mile 3. 7:00 Good.

Mile 4.7:13 I was starting to have stomach issues here, I have had a cold and my legs were feeling a little rubbery, having a hard time breathing too. A little up hill on this mile.

Mile 5. 7:28 I really died here for some reason, I couldn't work through the stomach issues and my lungs just couldn't get enough air.

Mile 6 7:43 I'm really dissapointed with this mile, I was not feeling good, this mile cost me a 10K PR.

.20 7:13 Recovered a little bit here but not enough.

I feel okay with the overall race considering I was in bed on Sunday and not feeling well, I need to get more consistant with my training and re-dedicate myself.

Course PR buy about 30 Seconds. I'll take even though I died towards the end.

Average Pace was 7:11 according to my watch.

See ya monday.
