Pretty good run for a Monday. 10.5 out to Toquerville and back. I ran up to the cemetery for a part of it, then out to the city building to get some water, then back home the same way. This route has some good hills both up and down. My legs felt pretty good, but my hips are still sore.

I have parent teacher conference today, which gave me a little longer lunch than normal, so I decided to hurry home, change and get in 4.5 miles. I had to run a little faster than normal which was good for me 6:55 average, I should do that more often. Anyway felt good to get in some miles in a short period of time. I'm planning to have a big week this week and next and then see what the marathon brings. I still would really like to go after my goal of breaking 2:40, I'm not sure if I'm in that kind of shape, but I still feel like I should go after it.
I had a difficult run this afternoon.  I left the school at 3:00 pm and did an out and back loop out in Hurricane Fields.  During parts of the run I felt great, while at other times I just died.  Anyway, I guess I'm glad I got 10 more miles in today.

Long day of parent teacher conferences. I was really tired most of the day, partly due to having went to a concert last night and getting home pretty late, plus my run yesterday afternoon totally wiped me out. Anyway tonight I just did an easy 5 miles over to Hurricane High School and back.

6 mile Gun Club tempo during my lunch break.  This is a pretty good workout, with two good solid miles climbing up the La Verkin Twist.  I really didn't want to do this workout in the heat of the day, but once I took off I just decided to do my best and get it over with.  My previous best time had been 22:54 going up for the 3 miles, today I hit 21:55 (7:18 average) so I was pretty happy about that. A full minute faster! I stopped at the top for three minutes, stretched took off the shirt, then headed back down.  I knew this was going to hurt a little trying to run downhill fast, (something I struggle with).  Anyway, I made it home in 17:35 (5:51 average), 21 seconds slower than my all time PR, but still a very good effort especially in the heat compared to last time I ran this in the early morning.  I'm still concerned with my hip as it seems to bothering me more when I increase the speed and intensity of my training.  It seems like I've had this nagging hip pain on and off throughout my entire running career.  Hopefully, it isn't anything to big.  When I got home, I got on the scale and weighed in at 139 so I'm dropping the weight.

I won't be at the club run tonight, but I'm looking forward to doing another long run on Saturday.  I actually wouldn't mind doing the marathon course one more time except not starting up so far and running all the way to the park, but if you guys want to do something else I'm also game for that.

Went and played basketball this morning for an hour, it was a nice break, I haven't done that for awhile.  I'll get in some longer miles tonight

Did the same 20 mile run on the course as last week. I had better results this week, but really didn't feel that great during the run. I was having some stomach issues, then my hips started hurting about mile 14. Anyway, need to stop complaining ran 2:12:12 (6:36 average) which is my fastest time for this 20 miler. My previous best was on August 4th when I ran 2:12:35, so not a huge improvement today, but I do think we had to deal with more of a head wind today, than we have at any other time. I lost about 30 to 45 seconds getting a drink right after Winchester, but felt like I really picked it up pretty strong the last three miles. I felt I ran the first 10 miles pretty good a minute faster than last week for the first 10. Last week I ran 2:13:36 so a better effort today. I'm not planning on doing any more 20 milers before the marathon. There is the Swiss Days 5K next weekend, so I'll probably do that and then some more miles on the course after the race.
