Rainy and cold... Lameness.  I ran over to East HS and did 6x800 meter intervals at 2:40 splits (5:20 pace)  My shorts got extremely soaked and were falling off on the 4th one.  Had to tie them before the last two.  I also got some extreme chaffing on my frontal chest section.  

 Along with that these intervals were quite difficult.  Considering I just ended track season I didn't think they would be that challenging but I still got through them.  May have been due partly to the weather.  My shoes were probably super heavy.  Did about a 2 mile warm up and cool down as well.

Did some spinning today for my cross training.  It's been a long while since I threw on the Pearl Izumi clipless and went at it.  I went for 50 minutes.  I did 10 minutes of warm up and then I did 4 minutes buildup to 1 minute recovery 8 times.  I changed up between hill climbing (harder and slower) to speed (easier but faster) randomly.  Doing the workout that way made it much more enjoyable and I was getting a pretty good sweat by the end.  AFter that I did some core work and some leg work.  The leg work was very minimal and light since I am not wanting super sore legs this week.

Ran out and back along the Hill AFB perimeter road.  Was going to do 8 today but looking over my week I saw that I wasn't going to be hurting for miles.  I figured i would just go short today.  Also did some weight training.

Today was interesting. Got out of bed with a mind full of many thoughts. I figured I would go on my run to sort things out a bit. As I went to grab my Nike's to get the inserts out of them, I realized that I couldn't find them.  Then I realized I had left them in Layton...CRAP!  

I had to make the drive because I wasn't going to do my run without the inserts.  After an hour of driving I was back.  It was nice because I was able to make some phone calls during the drive to sort some things out and I was feeling much better afterward.  

I went straight from Layton to the Jordan River Parkway Trail on 17th South.  I ran around the field for a mile warmup and then after some stretches I did my workout.  I did an 8 mile tempo run with an AP of 6:38.  It was pretty warm and I probably could have used some fuel for that effort.  Kind of dumb on my part not to bring any gu or endurolytes.  I got through it okay but I was a pretty tired by the end.  I did a mile cool down, stretched and then went home!  Talk about a crazy morning!

Went out and back along 11th East heading North.  Turned around at 100 South.  I didn't really like that route because it was quite hilly but it was a nice change of scenery.  I saw Judge Memorial HS for the first time ever.  Crazy.  Did some core and lifting afterward followed by a nice ice bath.  Good day.  Half Marathon at Hill AFB tomorrow.  Only cost 5 bucks!  There are shirts, food and aid stations! I love the Air Force :)

Well this was the first time I had run this one.  I found out about this race on Wednesday when I went to the fitness center.  Thought it would be a good way to get some mileage on the Saturday.  I told Becca and she wanted to run it.  It was only $5 giving us aid stations every three miles with cool finishers coins.  Not bad!  

We got there at about 6:50.  Becca jumped on the treadmill and I went and ran 4 miles. Then we went out to the start.  As you can probably tell by my time and the fact that I got first, it was a pretty low key race with a small field.  I didn't intend to go fast at all and I feel like I kept a good pace.  When we started I noticed one guy that looked like he would be somewhat fast.  We went out and he was holding about a 6:50 pace.  I was fine with that. 

We hung together for quite a while.  He was a cool guy that had just commissioned in the Air Force about a year ago.  The fastest we got was on a downhill portion and it was 6:30 so it was good.  At one point we hit the turn that started heading uphill and were struck with horrible winds.  It was tough to run into those.  We just kept trucking along.  I had a lot of energy still and was planning to break away for the win toward the end.  At about mile 8 though he fell off the pace and I was out in front by myself.  At one point we hit crosswinds and I was running sideways.  

Kept my pace up and finished.  It was a fun race and a good training run.  I won a $45 gift certificate to Outback.  After getting back I ran back to find Becca.  Not bad Hill... Not bad.
