Sixteen mountainous miles up at Alta.

Marathon training you know. One week. Time to get serious about training! 

 PM: Took Andy to Jump Around Utah. I bounced a lot. Should count as some kind of cross training or plyometric workout.

Interesting Doug. I was just going to do 3 or 4 miles tomorrow and a few fast 200s. But you may be on to something.

Procrastination coach! It cost too much $$! :)
