Ran with Greg and the boys form Monarch up the trail to 6400 W, Up to DD Ranch and back on Main and 13400 S.  7.5 miles in 7:23 pace.  Still coughing, but it seems to be getting better.

Ran during lunch today before the State Basketball Tournament.  I went out around south Herriman with a nasty south wind blowing me around.  Didn't feel super great, still coughing too a bit.  Glad to get a run in though.  I have parent teacher conference tonight and tomorrow and I am afraid I won't get to run tomorrow.  7:25 ave.

AM- Snowed again last night and it was about 25 degrees when we met at Monarch for practice.  We did a loop up Main Street to 6400 W and then over to where we could get on the trail and took the trail back.  It was freezing until we turned south about half way and then it was better.  I liked the parts that were not plowed because it was less icy and had more traction.  Started super slow at around 9 min pace but settled into a sub 7 pace for the last 3 miles.  7:30 pace for the 6 mile run.  Kind of fun in all the snow!

PM- Haag came over this afternoon and we went on an easy run up to Butterfield park and back.  8:14 pace for 4.5 miles.  First two a day in a long time.

I needed a long run in to get my miles up to at least where they were 3 weeks ago before I got sick.  I have had such a busy and crazy week with my wife being sick, parent teacher conference, State Basketball, and all of the spring sports starting up, (including Track) it has been hard to find time to do anything. 

I met my varsity kids at Monarch and we went up 13400 S and 6400 W to the Cove.  We ran to the top of the Cove which is always a grind, and you always have the Rose Canyon head wind on top of that.  I was feeling tired from yesterday, not being used to a two a day and all, but I stuck with the guys (Chuk, Connor, McKay, and Jesse J.) fairly well.  The way down was a bit different because we added a loop on Main Street and then an extra .7 at the end to get 11 miles.  That is my longest training run since St. George of 2009, and the longest those kids had been on.  I was pretty tired at the end, but after the run I realized we were sub 6:30 pace for the last 6 miles.  Not bad for me right now!  1:18.52 (7:10 ave.) for the run.
