7 miles in 7:48 pace.  Not bad after three days off due to not caught up on sleep after a 12 hour night shift on Friday.  Didn't get to sleep until Saturday night.  So I missed out on my usual Saturday run.  Some adjustments with being back to work full time.  Thighs sore from race Thursday.  Feel good right now though.  Headaches better last few days (knock on wood).  No major exposure.  I wear nose plugs these days and it works when in areas of perfume.  Darn Trigeminal nerve.  If my nose is plugged well I don't get a headache.  Amazing. Was suppose to sign up for the 50 miler today but now with working nights How do I Train?  I better sign up soon. It is probably closed, I just remembered I was supposed to do it today but due to work I didn't write it down.  Anyone signing up?

Christmas light run.  Just felt like finally getting out there and that was at 7 pm tonite.  Very scenic with all the lights.  Highly recommended.  Ran the first 3.3 in 8:04 pace.  Then a little half mile cool down at 9:04 pace.  Used course tool for mileage.  Able to get more exact with the course tool when I zoom in.  Didn't realize this before so liking the course tool more.  Even after harsh winds weather felt warmer than usual.  I am glad I got my run in.  Hope to tomorrow before two twelve hour night shifts Wednesday and Thursday.  (sleep would be helpful too).  Goodnight!!!

10.2 miles.  First mile 8:15.  Last mile 7:29.  Decided to slow it down since I work tonite.  Avg pace: 8:17.  2 1/2 minutes slower than last week but was intentional. Didn't want tired legs tonite.  Taking tomorrow off to try to sleep before the next shift and piano recitals.

Ran with Kim to just north of her road then over and down to manila Elem west up hill and over to 1100 north to the canal road.  Followed canal to Lone Peak High School then turned south to Mt. Timp Temple then turned right on 700 north in American Fork to 300 East AF then left to 200 North AF which turns into 1800 north in PG then home down 1300 west where Kim and I parted for 1/2 mile.  Chatted the whole time.  Glad we thawed out after the first mile and 1/2.  Kept mind off cold to chat a lot.   Pace decent but muscles chilly so no real force of pace just easy for all of 12 miles.  Avg pace: 8:49.  Busy running week so good to take it easy on my second long run.  Two night shifts tired me out a bit.  Should catch up on sleep tonite.  Get to do day shifts this next week.  Yahoo!!!
