am--1.5 Harts. I didn't do much w/ weights because I had a tight back over the weekend. RHR--54. 

pm--5 Warm and running around while the kids did their workout. It was rainy, and that made things fun and cold. My hands are still thawing.

pm—4 Ran mostly around the track while kids practiced handoffs. Triple-digit temperature today.

I also finished To Kill a Mockingbird again. This version of Atticus is something to shoot for.

am--3.5 DI/Whale. Good morning. RHR--52. 

pm--5.5 Sullivan out-and-back. It was warmish and the pace was warmish as well. Good push by some girls at the end. Added 2k on the erg later.

I just finished A Clean Pair of Heels: The Murray Halberg Story by Garth Gilmour. Halberg was a Lydiard guy. I love reading about the Kiwi’s adventures and training, although as an insight to training the book would come up short. Nonetheless, the mentality of these guys was amazing.

No run. I did do some cleaning and mowed the lawn. I also finished A Sense of Where You Are by John McPhee. McPhee is an engaging writer who makes you interested in subjects you would’ve previously never pursued. This book is about Bill Bradley and his playing days at Princeton. What a phenomenal read! A few great passages follow. 

“After watching Bradley play several times, even when he was eighteen, it seemed to me that I had been watching all the possibilities of the game that I had ever imagined, and then some. His play was integral. There was nothing missing. He not only worked hard on defense, for example, he worked hard on defense when the other team was hopelessly beaten. He did all kinds of things he didn’t have to do simply because those were the dimensions of the game.” (7-8)

“One effect that Bradley has had on Princeton has been to widen noticeably the undergraduate body’s tolerance for people with high ethical standards. ‘He is a source of inspiration to anyone who comes in contact with him,’ one of his classmates says. ‘You look at yourself and you decide to do better.’” (41-42)

11-mile bike ride to the entrance of Snow Canyon and back, followed by 3.25k on the erg. By the time I was done, it felt like work.

pm--4 It was good to be back running after a 10-day break. I did do some biking and rowing in the interim. Ran to SCHS and did some grass loops on the softball field. I love the feel of that grass. Erged 2k in 8:55 after. That's a good pull for me lately. 

I finished When The Emperor Was Divine by Julie Otsuka. It's historical fiction loosely based on her Japanese mother's experience in the USA during WWII. Took a while to get through this, but that says more about my life than the book.

pm--5 Green Valley Loop. I don't feel fluid at all, and my breathing is more labored than it should be. That being said, I'm back at it.
