No morning run today. Saw Joah off pretty early and then the kids and I picked up Ann from work and we had a great breakfast at Ruth's.

I read this obituary in the Salt Lake Tribune. One thing Utah newspaper's have is great obituaries. Way more detailed than what you find most places - almost mini-biographies sometimes. Anyway, this H. Rush Spedden fellow lived an amazing life.

Another great web site and tribute.

I invented a new workout today that I am going to cryptically call the "H-Fartlek"

Core workout after.

After a 1 mile warm-up with Andy on his scooter, I did 45 minutes of H-Fartlek.

Eight easy miles around Alta High School plus Jay Johnson's core routine with my runners. Listening to them whine about it the whole time was funny. And sad.

Tired today. Questioning my purpose. Sometimes teaching/coaching can wear a person down.

It will pass though.

PM: Ran an easy 2 on the treadmill and then did a hard strength/core workout.

Took Jake's hot tub advice after.

Post Lunch: 8 miles - 60 minutes - stinging pellet snow - wind - cold.

Maybe more later. METT-T dependent.

Had to say good-bye to one of my favorite students today, a young lady named Savannah Keys. She's moving to Nashville to become a country music star. She's really good and is already signed to a label. So all you country fans should look out for her.

One mile warm-up jog up to Highland High.

Met Jake, Fritz, Nate, Collin, and Josh and did the standard Saturday morning tour of Holladay and Millcreek. I ran well most of the way until my right knee and hamstring started acting up a bit and so I had to back off some.

16 miles in 1:53:50. A pretty solid aerobic effort for me.

PM: One mile jog. Not sure why.
