AM- 5:00am. 7 miles up into PG and back. Very cold and dark, so I bundled up and wore a headlight and reflective vest. 53:33

PM- It was nice when I left so I wore thinner gloves and didn't wear a hat. That was a mistake because it got cold while I was out. I ran up past the Temple, into PG, and looped back a way I had never been before. I loosened up as I went and ended up with a 7:01 ave. for the 8 mile run.

AM- 5:00am. I did loop up 200 East, on the Highland Hwy, to the Alpine Hwy, and by the Temple down to my house. It wasn't as cold as usual this morning which made it nicer. I was tired and started off at 8:40 pace, but finished with a 7:25 average for the run. 59:23

 PM-  I ran into Alpine to the Kohlers store and back.  I had to stop at a church in Highland to use the bathroom and then I was on my way again.  I am tired now the I have done 30 miles in two days, it is a lot for me right now.  7 miles

5:00am.  I ran East on 300 North into Pleasant Grove and looped home an other way down 55 North.  I was tired and fatigued from the last couple of days.  This will be my only run today because I have a Track meeting this afternoon and my little sister's birthday party this evening.  I could use the rest anyways!  45:27

Early morning run up 300 North in AF.  The roads were very icy and I had to take it easy, and keep an eye out for cars that kept sliding through the stop signs because they were driving too fast.  32:20

I have had a long week again trying to get settled into our new life and shoveling mass amounts of snow. I have been sore and tired all week and haven't gotten much sleep. Hopefully I can get into a groove and start feeling better. Life is going good, do get me wrong, there are just a lot of things going on to take up time and energy. At least today was a nice day, tons warmer than what it has been.

I warmed up by myself for 1.5 miles before the race. The same field that was at the 5k showed up again, so I was hoping top 10 for me. I really didn't feel like running today, but was glad I made some effort after it was over. Sasha, Steve, and Adam were all planning on racing way faster than what I am able or wanted to do, so I knew I was on my own today. The course was just an extended version of the 5k course, so it was a pretty flat out and back. I wanted to run 5:50 miles (MP) for the run, so that is what I did. I stuck right around there for the race. I was all by myself for the whole race and got lazy in mile 3 and 4, but picked it up a bit in the last two miles to hit my goal. If I would have paid better attention to the time I could have went sub 36:00, but I ended up a couple of seconds over. I didn't stop my watch so I don't know my exact time yet. I felt good about my effort, being tired, sore, and running solo the entire race. However, when I saw how hard everyone else ran today I felt kind of lazy. Maybe I should have at least tried to catch Albert Wint who was about 10-15 seconds ahead of me, or brake 36:00. Oh well, I have next weekend off and then the 15k, Del Sol, and Moab all on back to back to back weekends. I'll have a better showing at those races for sure.

The thing that I am happy about, and I was telling Steve Ashbaker today, is that last year at the end of February I ran a 40 minute 10k and this year at the beginning I can run 36 minutes. I am just glad that I have been able to put in a few miles over the winter and that my achilles is getting better and didn't ever completely put me on the shelf.
