am--5 Same as the other morning workouts. I did the warm and cool w/ the girls and did some running here and there for times and the recovery in between reps. RHR--49.

pm--3.5 Old morning route in the afternoon. It's getting warmer, and my darn window winder broke.

am--1.5 Morning run w/ weights. It was beautiful out. I didn't get any miles in before because the kid had a resless night. RHR--50

pm--5.75 Middleton w/ the secret park and a few minutes on the Middleton Trail. We did striders on the field at the end. Although it was a scorcher, I loved every minute of the run. I'm falling in love w/ the tough things.

am--7.5 Kidney Loop via Serenity. It took me a while to get going this morning, but the juice finally flowed. I love runs like this because the pace gets stronger and stronger. Generally, I work down to a tempo pace. Hollows one out. RHR--50.

am--5.25 Trail run near the Draper Temple (Coyote Gulch or Springs?). Twice in the run, there were 300 ft. climbs in just over a mile. So the pace was a little slower than normal. I think the girls appreciated that. Pretty jealous of those trails. 

Finished The Princess Bride on the bus ride home from SLC. It's different than the movie; I won't say better. The reader gets a bit more backstory but has to have the movie to fill his/her head with those character quirks that make it such a classic. As with Ender's Game, I found something useful for real life in this book. Westley's stoic attitude, in particular, his unflinching resolve while strapped to the machine, is exemplary. I'll see if there is a way to transfer that from the pages.

am--5 Running during the kids' workout. Another good workout for the kids. RHR--50.

pm--2.25 Loops on the softball field after a nice heart-to-heart with the kiddos.

Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko is done. I've read it before but saw it in a new light. The book is about a young man, white father and Laguna mother, and his struggle to deal with his heritage and PTSD after WWII. My favortie line comes from his gma: "It seems like I already heard these stories before . . . only thing is, the names sound different" (260). Preach, grandma!

am--3.5 DI w/ Dallen/Weights/Harts. Nice push w/ Dallen and good run after w/ the girls. I love my job. RHR--50. 

pm--4.5 Outback out-and-back w/ striders. We ran in some beautiful weather, hit a nice pace, and got back to a lightning warning. Thus, we did striders in the hall. The explosiveness of striders aggravates the achilles. Other than that, it felt better today. Erged 2k.

am--5.5 DI/Wieghts/Harts/Reverse DI. Good morning running. I felt peppy, due, perhaps, to the good showing we had yesterday at day 1 of region. I was sweating up a storm by the end of the run. Some heel drops made my life a little better. RHR--50.

pm--4.75 Mustang Pass w/ 6x striders. It was hot out, and the stickers were attacking. Learning to love the tough things.

am--10.5 Reverse Firestation w/ Quail Ridge and some running w/ the girls before and after their workout. By the end of my initial run, I was working down to the mid-6s. The run was hard but good. The girls looked great in the workout. Good things are coming this weekend. RHR--50.

am--4 Lutheran LED/Out on Panorama. OK morning. I slept in a few minutes and still got in a couple miles before the kids came. RHR--47.

pm--4.5 Telegraph out-and-back. Achilles is feeling decent. I opted out of striders to see if that would mitigate things.

am--3.5 DI/Harts. The achilles is annoying right now. Not terribly painful but never absent for long. On a lighter note, the weather was perfect this morning. RHR--51.

pm--6.75 River Trail w/ CV pick-ups. The pick-ups and recovery between always totalled 5 minutes--1 on, 4 off, 2 on, 3 off, 3 on, 2 off, and 4 on, 1 off. Really nice group working together, getting stronger together. Had a little meeting after about Bob Firman.

am--5.5 A little loop to warm up the achilles, then a decent run w/ the girls w/ 6x striders after. Other than a little soreness in the quads, I didn't have any ill effects from yesterday's work. RHR--50. 

pm--2.25 A small group of us ran around the softball field in the rain. Refer 3k after.

am--5 Easy run into Green Valley. I took it a bit easier than yesterday. RHR--56. 

pm--3 A short, chill neighborhood run w/ my buddy, Clint. He's getting into running and was nice enough to take it easy on me. I also picked up some shoes w/ a little more support to see if a little variation will help my achilles. I've had success w/ mild stability shoes in the past. So here goes nothing.

am--7 SC Parkway out-and-back via Serenity. I started out to start out and end up gradually increasing the pace. (This happens when I don't have anyone to talk w/ me.) Ultimately, the run turns into light tempo pace, tempo pace, and down near CV pace. Comfortably hard work. 4x 30 sec. on the erg after. RHR--53.
