Difficult day to run. I started out the door with the plan of doing some hill repeats over at Pah Tempe. I was one mile into my warm-up when my wife came and got me and said we needed to head to the hospital her father had just had a stroke. This is a pretty scary deal, just ask Dave Holt. Anyway, I was able to be with my father in-law most of the day and I helped give him a blessing. It was only a minor stroke, but he is still going to be in the hospital for a few days. To make things even more difficult, my mother in-laws father, just passed away on Saturday, so she is now dealing with both her husband and getting things ready for the funeral on Thursday. My wife, Sunny is doing a good job dealing with everything and said I could go out for my evening run tonight. It felt good to get out tonight, I ran up to the city building in Toquerville 4.5 miles and back home. Going out I was 34:02 and coming back I was 32:11. I hope to get in some good miles tomorrow and Wednesday and then taper a little for the Provo Half on Saturday.

Ran 7 easy miles with Bill from the hospital down by the river, then up through Bloomington Hills and St. James, back to the hospital.  Nice and easy run, decent weather.

Decided not to drive over and do speed this morning, since I'm going to be racing on Saturday and I had to be to a meeting by 8:00 am.  Went and played basketball for an hour, I'll get in some miles tonight

I did an easy 6 miles this morning from the hotel in American Fork up through town and back. I'm feeling pretty good for tomorrow. The day is going to be pretty busy, I have a friend getting married at 11:00 am so I'm going to have to hurry right after the race to not be late. I didn't get a run in yesterday with Sunny's grandpa's funeral.

Not a good week of training, lots of other personal things happened this week and running pretty much took a back seat to everything else. I had planned on doing the Provo Half, but got back to the hotel really late Friday night and pretty much decided against trying to wake up, do the race and hurry to my friend's sealing. It sounds like the race started closer to 7:30 than 7:00, so it was probably good I didn't do the race, I would have probably missed my friends sealing.

Anyway, I'm glad school is starting, hopefully I can get back into a better schedule with my time. Before this week, I felt like I had had two good weeks of training. Only seven more weeks until St. George and I still have lots of work to do. For some reason, I'm just not as motivated or excited this year as I was last year. It is kind of strange my race times have been faster, but I feel like my training hasn't been as good.
