pm--13.25 I slept in this morning, so no run. All day I was doubting my runnerness. I thought to myself, "I'll go home and do 9 or 10 and everything will be better. So I set out to do a little reverse loop around Clary but decided to test the SCRR trails again. I went exploring on the Tempi'po'op trail. Looking at the maps it seemed like it came out to the highway near Rider Auto, so, having a hair in my butt, I took  off. Well when I reached the end, I was at Anasazi Valley--we used to call it 3 mile--without any choice but to run back home. The run ended up being a little longer than a half. It took me 1:59:00. That's some fair ascents and decent trail running. Got home and I was overflowing with runnerness.

am--5.75 I haven't been out for a while in the morning but got out this morning.

pm--9.25 I went on a nice run in some new kicks--Mizuno WaveRiders. They have a good cadence and a cushy ride. The run was good except that I have some blisters left over from the trail run the other day.

pm--6 I did some 800s today with 400s for rest in between. I was planning on doing 6, but I'm still not Garmin savvy. Here are the 5:

1--3:19:34

2--3:27:23

3--3:19:32

4--3:24:75

5--3:22:57

Overall, it felt pretty good. I did it on the road and was shooting for at least some 3:30s. If this is the beginning of speed work I think I can do it.

pm--10 My father-in-law is a marathon guy. He's run a half dozen marathons and tries to get all of his kids to run too. The oldest three--my wife being the oldest--have all accomplished the feat. But sometimes it takes incentives to get them going. Anyway, this year he wanted to run the Utah Valley Marathon. Long story short, most of the family, including me, is signed up to run. Everyone that is running gets a new pair of running shoes. So I decided to try some Sauconys. I've heard great things. Well, this evening, I strapped them on and had my wife run me up to the Johnson's Arch trailhead. I ran the scout cave trail over to paradise cove, back to the canyons, and back home. It was quite a first run for these shoes. The trail is awesome--pretty steep and dangerous in some places, sandy in others. When you reach the summit--QUE BUENA VISTA! I'm getting into this trail thing. I just love being out in the desert.
