am--6.25 Well I hit 1000 miles last week. It's nothing new. I did last year--in October. I'm loving running. What an awesome way to enjoy life. Went out with Dr. Hunter and his nurse this beautiful morning and enjoyed the pace--she hits 8:00/mile pretty easy. Have a good week.

pm--.25 Played some ultimate today, trying to be a good sport and strained/sprained/pulled my groin/hip. There was never a snap, crackle, pop, but I was definitely dragging my leg around at the end of the game. Walking doesn't hurt. But, when I tried to run this evening, it just got worse and worse. So I called it quits. We'll ice, rest, and winter crest for the next few days and see if we can get it licked.

am--20 Woke up at 3 to do 20 with  the wif and sis-in-law. We went down THE COURSE. The first few miles were dark and slow, but the temperature was beautiful. I was just praying that my groin/hip would hold up. It did. In fact, I threw down a couple Tinman miles at 16 and 17. The body felt great, except for the runner's stomach--any remedies, anyone? Plus, I was able to hit my long run pace pretty easily. This is my third 20. I can see the benefits.

am--6.5 The last few miles of the 20 yesterday felt great, better than I've ever felt at that distance, by far, but, today, the body is sorer than its felt after a long run. Not sure why that is. Maybe the downhill coming through Snow Canyon. Anyway, I got out this morning to hit a little recovery jog and keep the father-in-law company as he tried to squeeze as many miles out of 4 hours as he could. He really is inspirational. His body is broken, but his mind is willing, and he just keeps churning. 

pm--4 Recovery/Just 4 the miles of it run. Both runs today, I ran in ASICS. The last 2 weeks, I have run the crap out of the Brooks that I'm trying out, hoping to give some accurate feedback. I really like the pair of Brooks I've been running in. ASICS, I also like. I wouldn't say one of the brands is a step above the other, but I would say that I've found consistent happiness with the ASICS. Anyway, I'm a shoe nerd.
