Zion Centennial Fun Run (10k)--42:19
St. George Half Marathon--1:36:45.4
St. George Marathon--3:22:29
Short-Term Running Goals:
I want to work on building up my base again and taking a crack at my 5k and 10k PRs.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Run to live. Live to run.
I'm married with 3 cuties and a buddy. When I don't run, I'm ornery. So for their sake--It's all for them--I run.
pm--8 Small workout: 3 x 1 mile @ 7:00min. pace w/ 800m recovery. I added an 800 @ the same pace on the end. This felt surprisingly good.
am--6 Usual morning run w/ the usual morning crowd.
pm--7 A little workout--4 x 800m in 3:26, followed by 400m recovery. Then hit a 400 in 1:40 and a 200m in :48. Nothing super fast but stretched the legs a bit.
am--6 Usual morning run w/ 10 x 100m mixed in to things.
pm--10 Did the Rim Trails w/ a little farting around mixed in somewhere there to make an even 10. I also did something I don't ever do--I went shirtless for a few. It was a nice afternoon.
am--3 Helping w/ a 5k. Today, life just required more time than normal, and running got the squeeze. Normally, I would fret about this. The trade-off was worth it today.
