This is by far the best my legs have felt since the A.F. Half. &nbsp;Started at about 5:50 and did 8 up and back down. Averaged 7:40 for the entire run.</p> Sat, 14 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 13, 2018 <p>AM 5.45 on the dirt trail east of the house.

The hills combined with tired legs made for&nbsp;a slow run.</p> <p>PM 3.1 easy on the TM</p> Mon, 09 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 07, 2018 <p>AM 14.35 in 1:52:39 (7:51). Started by the grocery store up by alpine and ran down to highland glen park and then up A.F. Canyon until I hit 7.2 and then turned around. Still not feeling that great.</p> Sat, 07 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 05, 2018 <p>AM from home up in to Herriman. Body is very tired.</p> Thu, 05 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 04, 2018 <p>AM from home and went northeast down by Riverton high school.</p> Wed, 04 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 03, 2018 <p>AM 7.45 from home and south on mtn. View and back.</p> Tue, 03 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 30, 2018 <p>AM 14.2 from home and ultimately up Rose Canyon to the Rose Canyon/Yellowfork trail head.&nbsp; I was slow today.&nbsp; My legs don&#39;t have much in them right now, probably from the race last week.</p> <p>PM hiked and ran up yellowfork canyon with Marisa. Went about 4.7 but I&rsquo;ll just call it 3.5 since we hiked a bit of it.</p> Sat, 30 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 29, 2018 <p>AM 7 going east from home.</p> Fri, 29 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 28, 2018 <p>AM 6.7 up in to Herriman and back.&nbsp; Lots of people out running, walking, and biking.</p> Thu, 28 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 27, 2018 <p>PM 5 slow miles on the TM</p> Wed, 27 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 26, 2018 <p>AM walked/jogged 3.4. I&rsquo;ll call it 2.5 of running. Still pretty sore.</p> Tue, 26 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 25, 2018 <p>AM some walking/jogging to try and get my legs moving. I&rsquo;ll call it 2 miles. I&rsquo;m sore.</p> Mon, 25 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 23, 2018 <p>AM I wasn&#39;t really planning to run this race until a few weeks ago, and then my wife signed me up cause she was running it and a lot of her family was either running the half or one of the other races.&nbsp; I wasn&#39;t super excited about it, mainly cause I fear the pain in my legs that comes along with the downhill course in the days after.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Overall, the race went really well for me.&nbsp; I don&#39;t race a lot anymore, but racing makes me push myself more than I normally would, plus this was a good guage to see where I was at as I train for the St. George Marathon.&nbsp; I went out pretty conservatively and basically followed two guys all the way down the canyon until about mile 8.&nbsp; As the course flattened, one of the guys dropped off, but me and the other (John) worked together for the rest of the race and we probably both bettered our time as a result.&nbsp; The flat/roller portion of the race wasn&#39;t as bad as I thought it would be.&nbsp; I really enjoyed the downhill in the canyon.&nbsp; Overall, this was a good experience.&nbsp; I still have time to get in really good shape for the marathon, but just need to be consistent and start to get in some good workouts that get my body use to the faster paces.&nbsp; Splits were:</p> <p>6:51, 6:38, 6:31, 6:23, 6:23, 6:15, 6:27, 6:34, 6:58, 6:50, 6:53, 7:01, 6:38, ?</p> Sat, 23 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 22, 2018 <p>AM from home up in to Herriman</p> Fri, 22 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 20, 2018 <p>AM 7.35 from home</p> Wed, 20 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 19, 2018 <p>AM 6.35 from home. We moved on Saturday and it destroyed my body. I&rsquo;ve been so tired ever since then.</p> Tue, 19 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 16, 2018 <p>AM 14.6 from home. Been struggling ever since I ran the downhill on Tuesday morning in Sundance.</p> Sat, 16 Jun 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 14, 2018 <p>AM 8.2 from home</p> Thu, 14 Jun 2018 06:00:00
