There was a bit of rain in the air and lots of standing puddles to jump and dodge but I got out the door and did a nine mile run this morning. That makes 60 for the week.....now I think I'll go get some rest and get ready for tomorrows 13 to 17 miler/65 mile week.

....8:35@, 6:55 fastest

6.3 very easy recovery run. The hardest part of this run was getting out the door and getting it done. If it had been raining I'd still be setting on the couch wasting away. TGFSS.

Todays schedule calls for a 6 mile easy run. Easy as qualified by "Peak Training" time. So it will probably be more like a tempo run...1 mile warm up, 4 miles at marathon pace and 1 mile warm down. Then again I might just do an easy 10 miles at a moderate pace.

OK I whimped out, I went back to my training schedule and decided I would follow it no matter how good I felt. Went out for a 6 mile easy run. Now I'll be ready for a tough 10 mile tempo trainer thursday!!! Gotta' remember to "RUN SMART"!

Got up late this morning and went out for a long slow 20 miler. I think I'm going to start getting up earlier to beat the heat of the day now that it looks like summer is here....

Today is weight day! I weighed in at 161.4. Yahooo...only 1.4 pounds to go to make my goal weight and 5 weeks before UVM and 21 weeks till SGM. I've lost almost 20 pounds since Dec. 20, 2009 and kept it off.

Todays fun and games will be an 8 mile recovery run.....when I get home from work. Hope the rain has passed so I don't get my shoes wet! I hate running in soggy shoes.

Todays run will be a tempo style workout.....50 minute tempo at 5K speed then some light jogging  to round out the 10 miles. Again I do hope to find some dry time to get my workout completed.

I can't believe I made the entire run without gettin' rained on! It was great.

Now it's time to get rested up for tomorrows fun...

todays run is a 15 miler at a comfortable pace - a talking pace as it were! Maybe I'll just sing along with my mp3 since I usually run alone.

I thiought this run would be difficult but it turned out to be one of the best runs of this training cycle. I felt strong as I went over the top of the mountain on wasatch dr. Can't wait to do tomorrows 10 miler.....

I wanted to start my three week taper on Sunday so I got out this morning and got in my last long run before UVM. The 22.14 miles felt pretty good.

9.3 AP, 6.1 fastest.

Today will be a 4 mile rest run......a good way to ease into week two of taper time. I'm really enjoying taper time this go round. It was a pretty tough training cycle and I glad it's all done except the UVM.I'm planning on about  35 miles this week spread out over 5 or 6 runs.
