Basketball this morning.  The last two months have been better than Nov and Dec, but I'm still behind schedule as far as running, just been really busy with other things.

Easy 5 mile run over to Hurricane City Park and back.

Didn't feel like running tonight, but forced myself out the door and ran 6 miles up to the substation and back. I felt pretty good once I got going.  With a little push the last .5 I barely beat the 8 min guy.

Basketball this morning, planning on running this afternoon. Just an easy 4 miles this afternoon ran over on the west side of Confluence Park, didn't find as many trails as I was hoping to.

Well, we got another team together this year and did the Lake to Lake Relay.  We had Steve, James, Clyde, Bill, and myself. I was pretty nervous coming into the race, because I'm out of shape and I was worried about the pain that comes with running fast.  I ran leg 2 which was a good 5.1 miles with a few rolls.  I started off about 2 min behind 1st place and probably a minute behind 2nd.

I quickly got the 2nd place run, but wasn't able to catch Ross Decker, but I did close the gap to 1 min down.

Leg #2

1-5:34 Wow I'm going fast again, as Ricky Bobby would say.

2-6:20 Short hill climb this mile

3-5:45 Good mile, feeling good but starting to over heat.

4-5:58 Another fairly flat mile

5-6:31 Gradual hill climb

.19- 1:06

31:16- 6:01 average

Leg #7

This leg was fairly flat for about 3.5 miles with maybe a little bit of climbing the last mile.  However, I was spent from my first leg and I really struggle on this leg.  Good thing we had a nice lead by this time.  I just felt bad I didn't run faster

1-6:07

2-6:34

3-6:49 really struggling

4-6:56 I was actually feeling a little better by this part, but now I was climbing the hill on Riverside Drive

.45- 2:58

29:26- 6:37 average

Anyway, we had a pretty interesting finish as team Decker was able to make a great comeback.  Fortunately for us, we had Clyde who was able to come back and secure the win for us.  All in all it was a fun race.  I just need to get back in shape.  I felt great the first leg, but didn't have anything left for my second leg.

Took my Praxis test this morning, but didn't feel like running at all this afternoon.  This week has been a bad week as far as running, but I've got quite a few other projects done.

Much better run compared to yesterday.  I did 4 miles down through Confluence Park, then went and watched Jansen's soccer game, then did 3 more miles after that.  It was a beautiful day today, not too hot, not too cold just right.  However, I have been struggling some with allergies

Feeling a little better, but decided not to race Spectrum.  The next 3 weeks aren't going to be very good for training, as I will be teaching a Driver's Ed class every night, maybe I'll try getting up and running in the morning which takes quite a bit of effort for me.

Just 3 easy miles.  Busy week with Driver's Education.  I'm planning on starting a 10 week schedule on April 5th and will try to get in good enough shape to run the Utah Valley Half Marathon on June 12th.

I've just been struggling with running this year, no real motivation.

Ran over to Nephi's Twist then up the big hill, then back down the La Verkin Twist.  I felt good the first two miles, but the rest of the run wasn't very good.

Did 9 miles this morning, over 600 North then back through Hurricane, stopped at the city park for a drink.  I felt pretty good the first 5 miles, then struggled the rest of the way.  It was no fun running in the crazy wind today.

Sunny dropped me off in Virgin tonight and I ran home 6 miles to the bottom of the Twist.  I started off feeling pretty good 7:14 the first mile and that was into a strong head wind, so I figured maybe I would try to race the 7 minute guy for awhile.

1-7:14

2-7:05 another good mile

3-7:48 uphill and into the wind still

4-7:15 starting to flatten back out

5-6:10 zoomin' downhill

6-6:07 downhill but very, very strong headwind here.

 41:45 (6:56 average)

This was a good run tonight, especially considering how burnt out I've been.  The reason this was a good run, was the fact I kept pushing even when my stomach was hurting (due to eating a pepperoni stick, bag of sunflower seeds, and a Pepsi while at Driver's Ed) and my hip was also hurting (due to being overweight still)

Once I got to La Verkin I did a nice 1.5 mile easy.
