Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance

AM: Two miles on the treadmill followed by weights. Probably the hardest I've lifted in two or three months.

Enjoyed breakfast at our local LDS Ward after and now we are off to the neighborhood 4th of July parade. Living in Utah is a little bit like living in Mayberry. But I love it.

PM: Eight mile loop up to Foothill Blvd. in 58 minutes.

I'm feeling like a slacker today being the only person on this blog who didn't race today. But I raced the last three weeks and I'm racing next week and just felt like I needed a week off.

What's the weather like in Mayberry this time of year?

I didn't race today, either. In fact, I'm going from June 4 to Aug 13 without racing. Makes for better training...
