I've been running since I was nine.  I'm married to a fellow runner who inspires and supports me.  We have two children:  Cole (4) and Lily (18 mos.)  I help Bill Cobler coach cross country at East High School.

After 2 and a half weeks of cross training, I tried running again today, and my soleus seemed to hold up, so hopefully I'll be back to it soon.  I ran over to Vista Elementary, 3 times around the park, and then back home.

My soleus was sore when I started, but warmed out in  the first five minutes.  I ran 4800 S to River Trail, and up by Millrace park.  Total time 32:26.  Not too bad for just cross training the last couple weeks, but I'm sure I've lost speed.  I'm supposed to run a 5k in Boise next Saturday.  I'll do my best, but I don't think I'll be that fast.

I didn't really do a continuous.  I just ran around the cross country course at the Murray Invitational cheering on the kids.  My soleus didn't like the uneven surface.  But, it's holding together.

I ran 1300 W to JRT to Millrace Park and home through Taylorsville High.  Total time 40:14.  I'm trying to work on my turnover a little bit, so I did one minute pushes every five minutes of the run for a total of eight.  This is a very good time for this course, so maybe I didn't lose that much fitness.  I think 5k pace will be another story, though.  But, I need to be positive and not worry about what I cannot control.
