I didn't run today, still feeling pretty sore.  I'll probably take it pretty easy the next few weeks.  I don't really have any races planned for the near future.

Took another day off.  I just went back and put my mile splits on my race report, up through mile 16 when my Garmin died.

Ok so what is next?  I'm considering finishing out the year with the following races

Butch Cassidy 10K- Nov. 7th

The Mesquite Half- Nov. 21, (possibly the full pacing Mike Warren)

Also, right now my mileage is just over 1900, and I would like to break 2300 for the year, which I should be able to do.

Anyway, I've been thinking a little about next year.  At first I was wanting to go and do Boston this coming spring.  However, now I'm wondering about staying local, saving some money and then maybe going back to Boston in 2011.  I really would like to get a backyard put in as well as a basketball court, so maybe that will be the focus this spring instead of Boston.

As far as running.  I'm not planning on heading to the trails or ultras (at least not yet)  I'm thinking I would like to give the Utah Grand Slam a try.  I really enjoyed the Ogden Marathon last year, and think I could do well at the other races.

As far as the St. George Marathon.  I'm sure I'll be back next year.  However, I'm really considering not running the course at all until the day of the marathon.  I usually really enjoying running down the course after a long lay off, but doing it numerous times leading up to the marathon does something to me mentally.  Besides, I think I know the route pretty good by now.

So there you go, that is the plan right now.

A little cross training this morning. Went and played some basketball it has been awhile since I've been able to do that, so it was nice to see some of the guys again.

Good run this afternoon.  Ran 5 over to the Hurricane City Park and back averaged 7:53 which was good.  The pain in the right shin area has returned. April said it is just a tight muscle so no damage to the bone. It had been feeling better after the massage last week, but started hurting again during the marathon, (along with the rest of the lower body) Anyway, nice afternoon to get out.  The weight after the run is good to.  I've been eating junk all week yet I'm lighter than I was last Saturday on the morning of the race, go figure.

Met up with Logan, Steve, and Mike at Jacob Hamblin home and did an 8 mile run. We started off on some trails heading south. After 4 miles Mike and I turned back, we took a different route back which was only 2 miles, so then we did another two miles back into Santa Clara then back to the Hamblin home. Was good to get out with the guys, beautiful temp's this afternoon. My right leg was bothering me a little bit again.
