Ran the Butch Cassidy 10K race this morning. I've never done this race before, usually because of the timing being a few weeks after the St. George Marathon, I've never really felt like racing. However, I figured this year I would give it a try, even though I haven't been training much, I thought it would be a good speed workout if nothing else. Saw Tony Jones, Karl Wilcock, and Dave Smith so I figured a top 5 goal was within reach. There is usually always at least one guy that shows up unexpected or nobody knows about and they run decent. Which was the case today.

Anyway, I got up there way too early, so I just decided to do an easy out and back 4 miles as a warm-up. I did the first two miles of the course, then turned around and headed back.

I really didn't have any time goals, just wanted to see how I felt. Like I said I haven't been running much since the marathon, and especially nothing faster pace.

1-5:53 Karl and Tony took off, Dave was in third, I was in 4th. I was just trying to hold back a little. I was taking splits from my Garmin and I guess I should have probably taken splits from the mile markers. Anyway, I was about 8 seconds slower with the Garmin on the first mile


2-5:57 Another good mile, feeling pretty good. Once again about 10 second difference

3-6:12 I was at 17:45 at mile three when I looked at the marker, so not bad, but nothing blazing, just enjoying the run

4-6:36 Probably the hardest mile, with a good hill climb. Guy from Ogden passed my here, but I didn't really care

5-6:23

6-6:13 This last mile is on dirt, so I was being a little more cautious.

.1- :36 Goal was just to finish under 38 minutes. Had to dodge quite a few of the 5K runners that were finishing up.

37:53 (6:05 pace) I felt ok with my time, considering the shape I'm in right now. I think I'll give the Snow Canyon Half a try next week.

Hung around forever, waiting on the awards and hoping to win something in the raffle. No such luck, but I did have a nice conversation with Nick McCombs parents.

60 minutes of basketball this morning. Planning on some miles tonight after driver's ed. Two easy miles with Sunny.  I really didn't feel like running tonight, but managed two miles which I guess was better than nothing and it only took 20 minutes.

My 2 year old Jarren somehow got in bed with us during the night and around 5:50 this morning he managed to kick me out of bed so I went on an easy 4 mile run over to the Hurricane Cemetery and back.

60 minutes of basketball this morning, I really didn't feel that good, pretty tired and really struggled to keep moving. Hope to feel better this afternoon on my run. I'm still planning to run the half marathon tomorrow, even though I'm feeling a little run down. Just an easy 3 miles this afternoon, still feeling tired.

The big news first is the fact I passed my mileage total from last year (1926) and I still have a month and a half left in 2008.  So I'm happy about that, and I'm actually feeling a little more healthy at this point compared to how I felt at this same time last year.  Don't have the hip pain bothering me as much as last year.



The race started out good, but finished poorly. Looking back I probably should not have ran this race. I'm not in very good shape, and I've been feeling sick and run down the last few days. Actually, been having some strange tingling feelings in my hands and arms the last few days, kind of strange. Hope with some extra rest over the weekend I'll feel better.

Did 1.25 mile warm-up

No real time goals going in, just wanted to try to run faster than last year.

1-5:09 Fast first mile and I was in 13th place, just trying to stay relaxed

2-5:19 Another fast downhill mile, pass a few guys and move into 8th

3-6:03

5K split 17:15- nice!

4-6:52 Going uphill on the dirt trail, I really don't like this section

5-6:57 Another uphill mile

6-6:12 Make the turn around and then start running back down the trail, trying to dodge people going in the other direction, some people weren't paying attention at all.

My 10K Split was almost the exact same time as my 10K race last week.

7- 6:44 Hip starting to bother me

8-6:03 Better mile

9-6:24 I think it was about this mile, that things really started falling apart. Mainly mentally, I think I had been in 7th and two guys passed me.

10-6:36 Really not feeling too good

11-6:55 Struggling through Entrada

12-7:03

13-8:10 I actually stopped and walked a few times on this mile, I really didn't want to but I was starting to get dizzy and started feeling more numbness and tingling in my arms and hands. I think I was in 8th place up until this place, but then got passed by a few guys when I slowed down.

.1- 13

My Garmin had the distance measured at 13.03

Overall time was 1:24:45 (6:28 pace). Last year I ran 1:26:11. the course was just a little different but I don't think it was any harder, if anything I think this year's course might have been a bit slower.

I wasn't that pleased with my time, but considering the shape I'm in right now and feeling a little on the sick side I'll just be happy that I finished this race.

At this point, I'm a little burnt out on running, so probably no more races until the new year. I've been really busy with some other things right now, so I will continue to train when I can and when I feel like it. I do need to lose a few pounds, even though I didn't take a lot of time off after the marathon, I've sure put on the weight fast in the last month.

Went and played basketball this morning for over an hour.  The last two days I've been pretty sore from the race and I've also been pretty busy, so no running.  This week will probably be pretty low as I'm going to a conference tomorrow up in Salt Lake.

Easy 5 miles over to Hurricane and back.  I've been really busy this week and was out of town for a few days, anyway not a very good week of training, but maybe I'll be more motivated next week and be back on a better schedule.  Right now I'm just taking it day by day.  I don't have any races planned for the near future.  I'll probably do the Painter's Half Marathon in January, we'll just see if I can make it through the Holidays and not get too out of shape.

Basketball this morning, had a hard time getting up.  Fun run this afternoon.  It was nice didn't have Driver's Education this afternoon, had a dentist appointment instead, so that gave me some extra time this afternoon for a run.  I left the house and ran up the La Verkin Twist, then got on a trail near the gun club, the trail was one I've never been on so that was interesting.  There was one pretty steep part, that I had to slow down quite a bit on, but most of the run was pretty good as far as trail runs go with me.  Amazing temperatures for the middle of November this afternoon.

Busy tonight, but managed to get in a 4 mile run did the La Verkin 5K loop, then added a little by going down through the Overlook Subdivision.  My right hip has been bothering me again, tonight it was really sore, probably the worst it has been in a long time, kind of strange, maybe the extra pounds I'm carrying around right now are adding to the problem?

Nice club run along Snow Canyon Parkway.  I only went out 3 and came back 3, but was still nice to run with some of the guys, sure makes the miles go by faster when you are with a group.

Not a very good run today, went out without having ate any breakfast or lunch and felt really dizzy and no energy, ended up walking for much of the distance.

An hour and 20 minutes of basketball this morning, feeling a little run down, no energy.

Interesting how much different this run was today compared to Saturday.  On Saturday I barely did 5 miles and it took me 60 minutes with some walking, I just felt terrible.  Tonight I felt pretty good 7 miles just under 60 minutes with at least one mile pretty much straight uphill.  I ran from my house up to the "H" in Hurricane.  I've never been up there before and it was a pretty good hill climb.  The distance measured right at 3.5 miles once I reached the top.  On the way back I picked up the pace a little and ran the last two miles right around 6:30 pace, which felt good.
