Eleven miles averaging 8.6 mph on the treadmill. My foot thanks me for using the treadmill and I think I'm going to do that for a while except for the Wednesday runs. We'll see how that works out. I am starting to feel a little zip returning.
Saw Fritz at the gym pounding out some miles on the bike the day after winning the Wasatch Steeplechase. For those of you that aren't from around here, Wasatch may be the toughest shorter trail race in the country. Spent some time with Steve Anderson yesterday and while I was talking to Fritz I was thinking about how great it is to have so many dedicated and talented runners so close who are also genuinely thoughtful and interesting people. Lots of folks to learn from and be motivated by.
Went by Whole Foods after the run and picked up some of their "California Quinoa" salad for lunch along with an assortment of olives from the over priced olive bar. Scott Jurek would approve.
FYI, I was on the Scott Jurek website checking out his speaking tour for his book. So far he's just visiting hippy, granola college towns (Boulder, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland) and I guess Salt Lake doesn't qualify. I sent his "people" an email urging them to put Salt Lake on the schedule but no response so far.
