11.0 in 1:25:26.  7:46 avg pace.  Started at about 5:40.  It was a bit cold.  Had to wear a long sleeve tech shirt and gloves. Ran up 300 West and then came back the same way via Center Street.  I was done at about 10 miles.  My legs were feeling it and I was having stomach issues.  Good way to start out the week though.

Ran out towards Saratoga and connected to the JRP.  Got home via 700 South.  2 mile warmup and then 5 miles at a semi-descent tempo pace (hoping for 7:00-7:15 nice and controlled).  Splits: 6:50, 7:04, 6:52, 6:58, 6:59.  Avg pace for the five miles was 6:57.  Cooled down with 1.50 back home.

Overall, this was a good run for me. Didn't feel like I had to work to hard to hit my splits and felt pretty relaxed most of the time.  By the end I think my legs were feeling the longer run from Saturday and Monday.

7.0 in just under 56:00.  Ran out toward my old church and then eventually connected to Pioneer Crossing and ran out almost to the freeway entrance.  Turned around and came back.  Just slow and easy.

7.0 with no watch.  Went out towards Saratoga and then back the same way.  Felt tired and lazy.  Planning on 13 up and down Provo Canyon tomorrow.

13.10 in 1:36:59.  7:24 avg pace.  Went up and down Provo Canyon.  It was freezing cold on the way up due to a head wind.  I like fall, but not when it's that cold.  Splits for miles 8-13 for my reference: 7:09, 6:56, 6:40, 7:09, 6:41, 6:37.  Legs were unusually sore on the run.  I played tennis last night and wonder if that had something to do with it.

Today is actually the day of my favorite marathon.  It's the Mid-Mountain Marathon which starts at Deer Valley in Park City and ends at The Canyons.  I've run it the last 3 years.  It's pretty much all on trail and you get the best views.  It is the hardest and funnest marathon I've done. If I wasn't racing next weekend, I would have run it.  Next year I think it will be St. George or Mid-Mountain.......or both.  Wish I was running it today.

One more week.......

Will lift later this morning.
