Sports bra run this morning. It was warm! My kids have their first track meet on Saturday in Nephi, so I don't think I will be able to get much running in. So, I will be trying to front load the week a bit. 7:15 average.

I was going to go longer today,but I felt pretty tired. So, workout tomorrow. My kids have their first track meet tomorrow. Should be fun. If I was brave, I would jump into a race. I'm not.

70 minute progression run, starting at 7:30 pace and finishing at 6:00 pace. Now it's off to Nephi for the kids' first track meet. I might get some easy miles in at the meet . . .or maybe not.

Midweek midlong on the river trail. A gross rodentlike creature crossed the path. Still not sure what it was.
