5 mi on the PRT, 800x1@3:25, 63*, no breeze, and the sun was up. I started this run off to be an easy rest day jog but I soon decided that I needed to start my Yassos. So, I did one and was I happy with my first yasso. As I marked off the yasso distance and turned around and startred my sprint back to the trailhead I ran through a HS track class. As I passed a bunch of them, one of them shouted out, "Look at that old guy go"! That felt pretty good but I know that with 78 days till the Full Monte I know that I have a lot of work ahead of me to be ready to get a decent "BQ" out of this Old Guy!!!!

17.4 LD mi this am. 58*/4750' ele @ st. & 72*@ the end. Highest point on todays run was 5400'. No noticeable breeze, full sunshine when it came over the mountains, 33% humidity. I changed up my Sunday long run for today because I felt like I might need an extra day for recovery as I get ready to run the Sandy City Classic 5K on the 4th of July.....that's all. Oh by the way, it was a great run in the mountains.....
