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.
