Ran Tee's last pre-marathon workout with her this morning. Two mile warm up. 3 x 1 mile repeats at marathon pace, with two minutes recovery. I ran my miles faster than marathon pace. I'm not racing St. George this weekend. 6:03, 5;57, 5:51. Nice, under control repeats. 3 mile cooldown.

Zumba

PM: Workout with the Race Cats. 8 x 300 meters 2 x 150 meters. Warm up and cooldown. I might regret sprinting with the kids tomorrow.

Missed my running buddy this morning.  She overslept.  Sluggish legs from yesterday.  Cut it a bit short.  So humid, but not raining! 7:19 average.

Lazy morning yesterday. I slept in. I hate running in the cold and dark. Back on it today.

AM: SLCC loop extended out to 2700 W with Becca. Felt good to run something longer than my usual 8 miler. 9.75

PM: Some mileage with the Race Cats. 4.25. I love these kids!!

Rainy morning. I treadmilled. 2 mile warm up. 3 x 10 minutes with 3 minutes recovery. Set 1: 6:25 average. Set 2: 6:20 average. Set 3: 6:13 average. Harder than it should have been. Might be because of the 14 miles yesterday.

Ran this race on minimal training. So, it was important to stay conservative. I was shooting for a 1:25 . . . about a 6:30 average. I stayed really consistent through the whole race. I actually really like this course. I'm happy with my effort, all things considered. 2 mile cooldown with Jasmine.

Out and back on Porter Rockwell trail. I thought I would catch Cole coming back, but he dropped a 7:02 and 6:43 for the last two miles, so no way! He's getting so strong! It's fun to watch.

Early run with Becca. Playing with the idea of picking up my training and running Ogden marathon.
