7.0 in 56:53.  8:07 avg pace.  It was more like an ice rink in some spots this morning, but most of the run was pretty descent.  Just trying to get back into the flow after taking 2 days off.  300 West route and back home.

5.0 out towards Saratoga and back.  No watch.  Felt like I was sleep walking.  Worked from 8:30 am to 8:45 pm yesterday and I think it took its toll on me this morning.  Glad I at least got something in though.

Nothing.  Work is taking over my life right now.

Nothing again. Probably could have done something this afternoon cause work finally is slowed down and I got off a bit early, but I didn't want to run.

6.50 on the TM.  Did 17 min on the stair climber before that and also lifted for 35 min before that.

10.0 on the TM.  I really wanted to meet up with Allie and the others this morning, but I just couldn't bring myself to run outside when it was about 5 degrees.  The LC is closed, so my brother got me into the gym down at the hospital.  Pretty good run for me.  I was skeptical I would make it 10 miles, but it went by fast.

Lifted for about 25 min.

A quick summary of my 2010 running year.  All in all, it was kind of a disappointing one as far as hitting my goal times, but oh well.  I think the times will eventually come if I keep putting in the work. I had high aspirations for TOU and actually probably ran the best 18 consecutive miles of my life.....and then the wheels fell off.  But I learned a lot.  DesNews Marathon was fun for a little while, but I really have no desire to run that race again.  But I also learned from that race.  I think I let the marathon and the half marathon get the best of me mentally this last year.  I think I will switch up my training a bit this coming year and really try to incorporate a bit more speed "stuff" and tempo miles.  As of now, I have one marathon on the schedule for 2011 (Boston).  If I don't get into St. George, I may not do another marathon during the year.  I also am entered in the half marathon at Utah Valley.  I will obviously sign up for many other races as the year gets going.  Would love to do more 5ks and 10ks to help develop some more speed.  I think it will be a good year.......and hopefully I will avoid any injuries unlike the last 2 years where I've missed about 2 good, solid months of running in each year.
