Easy 10 miler on the canal trail after school. I went north around the golf course in Brigham and back. It was a pretty nice afternoon for the end of November. I had a short day at school that seemed twice as long as usual. That might have had something to do with me feeling pretty slow and sluggish today. I wasn't moving too bad for that run but I felt like I was going 10 minute miles when I was really going about 7 minute pace. I was glad to be done with my run today, and glad to get a few miles at the beginning of the week. The achilles was about the same as usual.

I finally got out this afternoon for a short run. It was cold and the snow had turned to ice so I had to watch my footing and I still almost ate it a couple of times. I went south on the canal trail over to Willard canyon and instead of going another 1/4 mile and turning around like I usually do I headed down the canyon road. It was super slick and I wished I hadn't went that way after I slipped a few times. The run got a little worse when I hit highway 89 and headed back north, tons of traffic and slick and muddy running surface, not to mention a few big dogs. Next time I will just stay on the trail. I got home right at dark, just before 5:20 pm. 35:28 (7:06 average)

I went into Brigham City this afternoon and did a big loop around the east side of the city and the golf course.  There are a lot of rollers on the  east side so I got very good workout in.  The achilles was very slow in warming up today but I felt good, except for the steep uphill portions.  It was one of those days where I was running surprisingly faster than I felt like I was.  Other than my first mile which was well over 8 minutes, every mile, all uphill or not, was 7 minute pace or better.  Infact, 7 of those miles were under 6:45, not bad for that course, and my last mile was 6:00.  I had a hard time with the wind and cold in regulating body temperature.  If I was running into the wind I was cold. If I was running with the wind I was too warm.  It was some hard weather for my body to adjust to.  I feel great now that I am icing the old achilles and have downed a couple mugs of hot chocolate.  I am glad I went on this run today it was a confidence booster for me.  1:09:29

I went on an easy run south on the canal trail above Willard.  I didn't wear the Garmin today and didn't look at my watch until the end.  Kind of a lazy run, I was tired and the tendonitis was bugging me so I just crawled along for most of the run.  I was glad I went out though, because I it was a nice day and much warmer than yesterday.  51:52

No run today.  I figured that it might be a bit much jumping from 3 days to 6 days, so I will take it easy tonight and run in the morning.

Fun morning run in the snow today. I went out on the canal trail above Willard and headed south for 4 miles and then turned around and came back the same way. It had snowed earlier and was still coming down when I left. There was only about a 1/2 inch at home but as I climbed up a 1/4 mile on the mountain there was 1-2 inches. There was more snow the further south I went. It was fun being out blazing a trail in the fresh snow, although, someone beat me to it in one section of trail. The snow made the footing soft, but it was almost too soft at times and felt like I was running in sand. I also had to be careful since the trail is extremely rolling with some steep terrain, and is very rough under the snow. I would have went a bit farther today, but I had to get back for a family Christmas party, and I was tired from the difficulty of the snowy trail. I actually was running faster than I thought at times and is probably a reason why I got fatigued. I was running in the mid 6:00 range toward the end of the run. 58:12 (7:16 ave)

My achilles was sore at first like usual, but it was better than this week than last. I will keep trying to run the way I have been for another couple of weeks and see what happens. If I am still not getting better than I might need to take a week off or more and get better. I have been running in pain since before St. George and it hasn't gotten much better. But it was a decent week for me and I had some good runs, so I am happy with that.
