Tempo morning. I realized at the last minute that Lily had snack bucket for school today. The only food we have in bulk is protein drinks and bars. Maybe some energy gels. That would be a pretty weird preschool snack. So, I made a scramble to the store and ended up running at the gym. My legs were a little tired, but aftet an extended warm up, they felt ready to go. 25 minute warm-up, followed by a 7 mile tempo. 42:15. 6:02 average. On the accurate treadmill. I thought of running eight, but started getting a side cramp in the last mile. So, I called it good at seven. I warmed down just over 15 minutes to hit 12.5.

AM: Easy hour long morning run. I finished at 8:20. At 8:25 the downpour began. I'm glad I missed it, but I'm pretty sure my son got soaked getting to school.

I was happy to feel pretty good today. I got home from my workout yesterday and started shivering. My stomach was acting up,too. I ran a fever, but it broke just a few hours later. I was tired the rest of the day, but felt fine this morning. It was a very short lived stomach virus.

I ran 4800 W to the river trail and headed north. At 30 minutes I turned around. 4.1 out, 4.22 back. 8.32 total. 7:13 average.

Mid-week mid-long. I'm going to try to incorporate a 12-15 miler into my marathon training on Wednesdays. Sometimes with a workout included, sometimes just a run.

I felt really good today. Probably because I missed my second run last night.

AM: Nice morning run. It was chilly. I ran down on the parkway. It was beautiful with mist rising off the river. It was definitely one of those mornings that I was thrilled to be out running. Now to find a babysitter so I can repeat the experience in the pm. 7:27 average.

PM: My legs were a bit tired this afternoon. The run was really windy, too. The highlight of the run was seeing members of the National Guard running with American flags. I thought it was a nice way to commemorate the day.

Tired legs this morning. I went to the dog/horsepark for soft surface running. I like it for fartlek workouts. I warmed up 20 minutes and ran 10 x 2 minutes on/off. I hit 6:42 average for the six miles of fartlek. I cooled down another mile. I thought I saw Jake running across the street from the park, but it may not have been him.

I think it's too cold for September 13. The wind was nasty.

Birthday run! (Well, my birthday is actually tomorrow. ) I dressed in my most flourescent colors and met Jenny at 5:30 for 18. We ran out 500E, lapped around Liberty Park, over to 2100s, up and around Sugarhouse Park, and back via Highland. 7:02 average. I was my usual graceful self and biffed it hard somewhere close to the 16 mile mark. I'm a bit torn up and there are blood flecks all over my running shorts. Besides that, I felt pretty good. I'm getting used to the 2hour plus runs.

So, I hit 75 this week. My highest week before St. George was 81. I'm still 12 weeks out from CIM. Any advice on how high I should build uo, without risking I jury or losing quality? I'm feeling pretty good at 75. I feel much stronger than last year.
