Easy 4 mile run up to the substation in Hurricane and back.  Legs a little tired from the race still, Achilles on my left leg hurting just a bit?

Very rough night sleeping, got up and did the La Verkn 5K loop. The kids from Cross Creek were out running, so I tried to keep pace with some of them. Achilles still bothering me a little and still feeling sick.

Found out yesterday we got the house we put an offer on and they would like to close by the end of the month. So I will be busy the next few weeks, getting everything ready for closing, packing up the house and making the move, all while trying to get ready for the marathon. We're pretty excited as the house is quite a bit bigger and just a year old.

It will also be interesting because we'll be in a different ward so I won't be scoutmaster anymore, knowing my luck they'll call me to work with the young men the first week we are there. It seems once church leaders find out you teach school and work with youth, then that is where you end up serving. Anyway, should be an interesting next 3 weeks.

6 easy miles tonight, pretty busy with Driver's Ed, and a few other things with the house we're getting. The lawn over there hadn't been mowed in quite some time, so I managed to get it mowed, but it was slow going and I could probably now go back and mow it a second time with the mower set a little lower. Anyway ran over to Hurricane High and then caught a ride bike with my sister-in-law, and then did the La Verkin 5K loop with Sunny. Still feeling a little sick, mainly a headache tonight.

Great workout tonight, it is funny how sometimes I have one thing planned and then end up doing something entirely different once I get out on a run.  Anyway, we had parent/teacher conferences all day and night.  I got out of my last appointment at 8:15 and figured I would just do an easy 4 mile run home and then maybe 3 miles with Sunny.  I then planned to get up early and do 5 x mile repeats @ LT pace.  Well, once I left the school the temp's were so nice so I headed straight for Hurricane High, it was already pretty dark, but as I got closer I realized the lights were on at the track.  It turns out there was an 8th grade football game going on and it was only in the second quarter, so I just figured hey might as well do the mile repeats right now under the lights.  I don't know what it is but I've always enjoyed running under the lights, maybe it goes back to high school and how everyone thought football players were cool, because they played under the lights, so when we as runners got to run under the lights we thought we were cool.

After the 2 mile warm-up from the Intermediate School I was ready to get right into the workout.  It didn't really bother me that people were trying to watch the game, I just figured I had my i-pod going and I would do my thing.

5 x 1 mile with 400m recovery

1-5:47- Feeling good

2-5:46-Start of my second repeat and start of the second half of the football game

3-5:39- 9:00 pm and 78 degrees, very nice

4-5:45- Feeling a little tired, got a quick drink

5-5:48- Glad to be done, but really still feeling pretty good.  The game got over on this repeat and they were not wasting much time turning the lights off.  I had to hurry to finish up.

Did 2.5 mile cool-down home

Overall, very pleased with this workout and I feel my running is going pretty good right now.  Hopefully, I can avoid any sickness or injuries the next few weeks and then see how things turn out in the marathon.

Pretty proud of myself this morning.  I got up before the crack of dawn and got in a good 12 mile run out past Hurricane Intermediate School, well I wouldn't really say it was that good, kind of on the slow side, but that is ok my legs are still feeling tired from the track workout Wednesday night and that 20 mile race last Saturday.

We are heading to Phoenix tonight, so no more running today.  I hope to get in 10 miles tomorrow, which will put me at 50 for the week.  I was hoping for a bit more, but I've just been listening to the body this week.  Actually getting pretty close to TAPER TIME!  I'll probably do 50 miles again next week, then bring it down to 40 and go from there.

I feel like I'm in as good of shape as I was last year, maybe even a little better, so the plan is to try to hit another PR this year at St. George.  I'll probably try to go out a little faster than I have the previous two years.
