Easy workout with East High team.  We ran the 2 mile loop around Sugarhouse park for a warmup.  Then we ran two miles of speed changes on the track, followed by a two mile cooldown around the park. 

I can feel the strain in my hamstring, but it's not as bad as last week.

I ran from Liberty Park today. I warmed up with a grass loop around the park. Then, I met the East High team for a 5 mile run. We ran the last two miles of the Deseret News 10k, out to South Temple and back. We ran the 5 miles in 31:50. Then, I ran another grass loop around the park to give myself 8 miles.

I watched Teren run the Deseret News 10k this morning, so I did all my mileage in Liberty Park.  I ran 3 1.5 mile laps around the park while I was waiting for him to finish.  After the race I ran 5.5 miles with Michelle for her cool down.  It was pretty easy pace, but that's probably not a bad thing after yesterday's tempo run.

I am very tired today.  I don't think I took very good care of myself yesterday in terms of nutrition, hydration, and rest.  I didn't run very hard yesterday, but I think the 3 a.m. wake-up did me in a little.

I ran at Valley park today for a fartlek workout.  I was mad to see that the dirt running trail that I like to run on is being torn up.  I hope they are not turning it into a basketball court. 

I ran a 15 minute warm up, followed by 2 sets of 5 minutes, 3minutes, 2 minutes with one to one recovery. (40 minutes total).  Then I ran home for my cool down.  (10 minutes).  I felt very sluggish.  Hopefully I will feel good again,soon.

I met  Zuzana and Bethany down on the Jordan River Trail.  We ran from Millrace Park 5 miles south and then came back.  It was hot!  I'm used to running so early in the morning, that 8:00 was very warm.  Zuzana wanted to keep it about 7 minute miles because she is running a long run tomorrow and just finished Deseret News.  But, we got rolling at 6:40's.  Coming back we hit some 6:25-6:30's.  I felt pretty good until the last two miles.  My stomach started bothering me, but I survived.  I don't have the specific total time because I started my watch late, but I think it took us about 68minutes to run the ten miles.
