3 easy miles this morning. Good hard workout tonight. I decided to do my Pah Tempe Hill workout. It has been awhile since I have done hill repeats on this hill. This summer and fall I did hills over in St. George up Castle Rock hill and Little League Hill with the cross country team. Personally I enjoy my Pah Tempe workout much more, I just like the hill and the quiet environment it is in much better than over in St. George. The hill measures .3 miles and has a pretty good incline, with a short section 3/4 of the way in that is flat just long enough to catch my breath and get ready to push the last part of the hill.

1 mile warmup, plus some stretching and drills

1st repeat- 2:07* new all time PR, previous best was 2:09

2nd repeat- 2:08 another good repeat

3rd repeat- 2:13 this one actually felt pretty good, it was like my body was more warmed up even though the time was a bit slower than the first two

4th repeat- 2:14 was going to stop after this one, but decided to try to do one more. Didn't want to do too many since this is the first time doing them in awhile, but figured I could handle at least one more.

5th repeat- 2:10 this one felt good and strong.

Finished with a 2 mile cool down back down Pah Tempe, then up past Howards. Took the cool down at a relaxed pace,I had to run up another .5 hill, things we going good, then I got chased for a bit by a pitbull/boxer don't really know what the breed was or the mix, didn't want to hang around long enough to find out. After some yelling at the dog, it did decide to turn around and go home. Later on the cool down caught up with Jordan riding his bike home from football practice, so he rode along side me for the last mile.

One thing that really keeps me going and excited is being able to look back at previous workouts and seeing improvement, which has been the neat thing with doing this workout, I have been able to see improvement since I started doing these back in January, the times have come down!

Only got in 4 miles before Trick or Treating. Not feeling too good, everyone is getting sick at my house. Sunny has been feeling quite sick and I'm not much better. Took the kids out for awhile, but Jansen wasn't really into the trick or treating much, he was having more fun giving out candy than receiving, which I guess when looking at the big picture of life that is just the way it should be. Jordan dressed up like an old lady and really looked funny.

I didn't run today. I've been feeling pretty sick and wore out. My only desire tonight was to sleep. Hope to make it to the club run Thursday night, but I'll have to see how I'm feeling.

Missed the club run, sorry guys, but I'm planning on seeing you all at the race Saturday. I came home from work and slept for about an hour, still feeling sick, but got up and decided to head out for a run around 4:30. As Clyde would write the run was Blah! Just ran over to Hurricane High School, then stretched and walked a lap around the track. A guy about my age was running a little bit, so I talked to him for a while. His name was Kayden and he said he would like to train and run the St. George marathon next year. I told him a little about the club and the fastrunningblog. He was figuring out how to work his Ipod/nike GPS unit, looked interesting. Anyway after talking to him, ran back over to La Verkin all the way to Farmer's Market then back home going down through the Overlook Subdivision. Glad I got out, but still not feeling all that great. I'm interested to see how I'll race on Saturday.

Did a run close to 9 miles this afternoon and was hurting pretty bad. Ran from Sky Ranch back to La Verkin, whole body was hurting but managed to run it in 59:55 which was a new record for that run, previous best time had been around 1:03. Glad the week is over, not the best week of training, due to being sick much of the week, still feeling a little week.
