Ran again at HIGH NOON.  Oh yah!!!  Did the wet my visor thing and took off.  Felt fine in the heat. First mile 8:55, felt like a 10 minute mile so good.    Did the same run I did last Monday am (to Cedar Ridge drive and down Cedar trails and home (7.45 miles).  Pace 8:10.  Uphill pace faster this week and in the heat!!!  I felt strong even though I was taking this as an easy day.  However I did throw in a fast mile at the end (6:44) in the desert heat.  1/2 mile cooldown at 8:52.  This whole run was spur of the moment, where I would go etc.... it changed several times in my head then I decided a stop by the stream at Cedar Elementary would be wise.  There was a water fountain, Yay and the stream resoaked my visor and head.  NICE :D.    PS  sore throat continued and turned into lots of sinus congestion Saturday and Sunday.  Sleeping helped.  Had those nights off.  Took tonight off so I would not have to expose the babies.  I am at the tail end  of this I think, feeling better and better, but taking ibuprofen each day to keep the inflammation away.  Hope I don't get the cough my daughter has.  I think my taking it easy running has improved my immunity.  Not that my last mile was taking it easy, I suppose :  D.

Met Kim to meet in 1/2 mile at 545 am!!!!! Not even 24 hours since last run yesterday at high noon.  FREEZING!!  BRRRrrrrrr!!!!  I liked the heat better.  Wore a tank which didn't help.  Pace slower too but really should have slept longer/better.  10.05 miles on half steady uphill at  8.25 pace.   Feel beat, tight muscles and BRrrrrrrr, may I say again.

Absolutely NO miles, no crosstraining.  Or you could say hanging out at 7 peaks from noon until 7 pm some crosstraining?  No just relaxing, with the sun beating down on you and kids splashing and having a great old time.  My kids used their Peak Reader passes to go so it was free for them and got two for ones for Troy and I at FFCU.  We are all sunned out.  Didn't reapply sunscreen enough.  Felt nice to skip a workout.  Feel rejuventated.   Have a PM run planned with Kim tomorrow.  We will stick around here (PG to Alpine and back) for 14 miles or so with some pick ups.  We leave at 7pm, due to our schedules again we are running at night.

Did a shake out run at 8:15am.  Getting HOT in am but still doable, no water on hat needed.  Kim and I are running 14 miles this PM so went short.  Ran last mile at marathon pace.  Thought I was slower so glad it was under 7  (6:55).  MP probably, hopefully will be 7:00.  Time will tell after my halfs.  Bryce Canyon Half  (next Saturday) starts at 6am and I just looked at the weather there at Ruby's Inn and it is currently (9am) 52 degrees.  Hey, BRRRRrrrrrr for the the start at 6am then.  I better start running in the "cold" again.  I will probably bundle up for this race, long race and short race tee for sure.  Until PM run.....write later.   Average pace for 3.65=  8:10.  

PM RUN IN THE SAUNA (outdoors that is).  It was such dry heat we didn't realize we sweated at all.  I was down 1.5 pounds post run and that's after downing nearly half a 32 ouncer of gatorade at the "finish line" where I also poured water all over myself as at first tried laying down and the world was "spinning".  Kim and I started cramping up after mile 10 without electrolyes.  We had three water stops but those are just sips and just plain water.  Good for our hats though and reducing some of the heat wave.  We left at 655pm and ran just over 14 miles at  8:16 pace (according to the GARMIN, hate that thing it "slows" me down).  We ran from PG to the Alpine circle via Alpine highway and down to Cedar Ridge Elementary and on to the River Trail....ah weather nice by the stream but was stenchy the remaining of the run.  Sauna-like.  Your sweat evaporated quickly.  Pigged out afterwards on two servings of cottage cheese and freshly baked whole wheat banana bread with OJ-  thanks to Troy.  The kids have a swim meet in Payson at 0700.  Early mornin' tomorrow and I work tomorrow night.  LONG DAY.  BRING IT ON :  D DDDDDDDDDDD

No workout planned as swim meet and work tonight.  At least got in over 40 miles this week, my goal for now.  See Friday's PM RUN for some insight into running at that hour here in good ole Pleasant Grove, Utah.
