I ran out towards the Payson Park, out and back it was a beautiful morning, I was even able to wear shorts! I decided to do some striders after I warmed up and then when I got to the hills I was going to push hard up each hill and then recovery for about a 100 meters. Then in the middle part of the run I wanted to do some tempo miles and I was able to do that, my tempo miles went like this; 7:33(151), 7:41(155) a little up hill on that one, 7:19(161), I then did a cool down. My average pace for the run was 7:57 with my heart rate at 153 and my total time was 56:41 I would have to check but I think that might be a PR for that course:-) My legs felt really good but the true test will be how will they recover for tomorrows run, I hope they will feel good... I hope to do Harry's Hill this week, not at full speed but at least do it and then do it every other week to strengthen my quads. I also did my upper body weight training on the Bowflex, one set of each exercise with 12 to 15 reps for each set, well that's about it.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to the old BYU farm just passed the red brick house and this has to been the most wind I have ever run in. At one point it was so windy that I felt like I was going back wards, or at least running in place, it was brutal! I tried to run a recovery run  but the wind made it harder although my average heart rate was 133 and my average pace was 9:24 with my total time being 1:06:08 very, very, sloooooow.... I also do my weight training on my legs and then I all so did my core training using the rubber ball and alternating with sets of push-ups.

I played 18 holes of golf yesterday and played pretty well, I was 4 under par after 14 holes but then I ran into a little trouble on the remaining holes but I still finished up with a 1 under par 70, so pretty good:-) The only problem with my golf is when I get into a tournament my nerves get the best of me and I tend to fold, I need to learn to relax out there but it is difficult at my age to do that, but I keep trying!!!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Payson Park but cut out the hills, no wind today which was a plus but boy was it cold, it felt like December out there!!! I went real easy again today my average pace was 8:59 with my average heart rate at 136, total time was 1:03:56... My legs felt pretty good this morning, I might do Harry's hill in the morning, but I will have to see how I am feeling I still might wait until next week. Tomorrow afternoon we are heading down to Monticello to do some Four Wheeling and hunt down some old Indian ruins and do some site seeing, We will be back on Saturday afternoon so I am going to try and run down there but I will have to see how things go, hopefully I can:-)

That's about it, I will see you tomorrow.

I ran out to mini GU corner and the log house, out and back... I ran a pretty up beat run not at marathon pace per say, but up beat none the less:-) My average pace was 8:29 with my heart rate average at 141, total time was 59:29 I didn't do Harry's Hill today I decided it would be better and wait until next week that will make it two weeks out from my race and I feel like I will be fully recovered... I had three miles that where close to my marathon pace, about a 30 to 40 seconds off my actual pace and those went as follows;7:55(144), 8:12(150),8:07(142).

Well I have to get going as we are heading south for a couple of days, so I will post when I can.

See ya then:-)

3 miles in Monticello, un-timed, very easy. I didn't have a lot of time, we had to get on the road to get to the Indian ruins it was pretty cool:-) We also did a lot of hiking...

Not a lot of time today either as we had to get up early and check out of the Hotel and then we had some more Indian ruins we wanted to get to before we headed for home... I just have to say that we have had a great time with my brother-in-law and his family who set up the trip, and it is amazing to see how the Indians lived. My wife's great great grandpa was a Sheriff in blanding and was the one who Shot and killed Chief Possey, who at the time was trying to insight all of the other Chiefs on the reservation to leave the reservation and kill all they other whites that had started to occupy the land. It was pretty cool. I didn't have a lot of time to run, but who cares, it was so cool to see all the history and ruins in that area. Both Abby and Ethan had a great time, especially Ethan he didn't want to leave! We had a great time and I wouldn't mind going back some time because there were a lot of ruins we weren't able to get to because we didn't have a enough of time, but it was still fun as heck

See ya Monday.
