Nice run this evening, 7 miles from the house over to Hurricane then out to 400 South, all the way out to the west, then back on the highway, to Wendy's, (and yes Sunny picked me up at Wendy's and I had a kids meal with a hamburger and a frosty). (Nimbus 139.5) I gained a few pounds over the weekend, but was 149 this morning, so we'll see what the week brings.

7 miles over to Hurricane, went up and explored a little of the Canal Trail, went through the cave, but wasn't that impressed, so came back down and did a few more miles around town, pretty windy tonight. (Nike Zoom Miler)

Decent run tonight, didn't have much time, but got in 8 miles. I ran up over 600 North Trail to Sky Mountain Golf Course and back.

1- 7:00, 2-7:32, 3-7:09, 4- 8:06 (had to climb over some rocks and up a small hill) 5- 9:04 (some more hill climbing and legs tired had to walk briefly) 6-7:33, 7-6:22, 8-6:35

I tried to pick it up the last two miles and made the overall average 7:25 pace, not great but ok for where I'm at right now. (Nimbus 140.5)

Tonight was basically three different workouts. First I did a 3 mile tempo run from the running store down the marathon finish to Warthen Park, had to run around the park a little to make it exactly 3 miles, but I was pretty pleased with the pace.

1- 6:25- crossing busy streets, always slows me down a little

2- 6:01-felt good

3- 5:59- still feeling strong

Once at the park I stopped briefly to use the bathroom and get a drink.

Then the second workout, the run back to the running store which had some gradual uphill, but not too bad, just kept the pace easy here.

4- 7:28

5- 7:36

6- 7:30

7- 7:37 ran up to the Elks Club, then back to the store

The last workout was running 5 miles with the club. Steve, Bill, Luke, and Paul. Dave and Clyde are off to Boston, which I think they are going to do quite well at this year. I wish I was going, but I need to save some money. Maybe next year I'll go again, definately want to do it again sometime.

Anyway with the club I only did 5 miles on the trail above Red Cliffs Golf Course. I was feeling kind of tired on the trail run, not so much tired, but really hungry, all I could think about was getting something to eat. The pace for the 5 miles was really slow, we had to climb over quite a few rocks, and at one point lost the trail completely. Legs and hip flexors a little sore, and my right ankle has really been bothering me lately, ever since I broke it a few years ago it has never been quite the same, it is still pretty weak.

3.5 easy miles this morning, tired and sore blah! Easy 5 miles tonight from house over to Hurricane High School and then back home. Interested to see how I run the Race For Kids 10K tomorrow, it is a challenging course, some good downhill in the beginning, but a tough couple of miles uphill to the finish. (Nike Zoom Miler)

Ran the Run 4 Kids 10K this morning over at Coral Canyon. Race was ok, I took 3rd and ran 37:34 (6:02 pace). Last year I ran 38:40 on the same course, so it was nice to see the 1:06 improvement. Steve Olsen won the race, and Steve Hooper was second (he ran a good race, and we worked together the first three miles), Bill was 4th.

1-5:50- felt pretty easy holding back a little, looking back now I probably should have pushed the beginning a little harder, since the end is so hilly and slow

2-5:38- still feeling fine

3-5:57- just hanging with Steve Hooper.

4- 6:10 Steve has picked up the pace a little and I didn't go with him, probably should have tried a little harder, but feel more like I'm just going through the motions and not really racing.

5- 6:45 Here comes the tough hill section, actually was a lot easier this year compared to last year. I just felt stronger and managed to make it up the hill in decent shape. Still don't feel like I'm racing though. At this point Steve has put about 30 seconds on me and I'm feeling no buring desire to try to catch him at this point.

6- 6:21 Finally make it to the end of the hill, once I hit the stop light and turn toward the downhill to finish I felt great, really picked it up the last half mile.

.16- 48 Happy to finish and really feeling pretty good. Like I said I felt good about the improvement from last year and was also happy for the other guys. Steve Hooper didn't get to ran last year because of IT band problems, so it has been nice to have him back, and Bill also improved his time by over a minute. The fast guys from the club are both out in Boston good luck Dave and Clyde.
