14 miles on the treadmill watching the AFC championship. Kept it at the high end of my aerobic pace (9 mph) most of the way.

Enjoying a bowl of cottage cheese with blueberries now. It sucks being responsible.

Six easy miles at 8 minute pace. Big day planned for tomorrow so hopefully I'll be well rested for it.

15.25 miles on the treadmill. About halfway through I did 5 x 1/2 mile in 2:42. Thus, I strategically embedded a VO2 Max workout in the midst of a medium long run. Pretty crafty I think.

Now, from 6 to 8 PM I get to attend the Alta High School School - Community Council meeting. A day with absolutely no interaction with my family and no State of the Union Address for me - shameful for a social studies teacher.

Good run though. Shows I have my priorities in order.

Great race today. It was my daughter Abby's first solo 5k. She ran 37 minutes. I ran my race and then turned around and ran the last mile with her.

Pretty good 5k for me although I was a bit wimpy the last mile. Splits were...

Mile 1 - 5:26

Mile 2 - 5:35

Mile 3 - 5:44

Slight tailwind going out, slight headwind coming back. I won the masters division and am now officially the "Road Runner's Club of America 5k Utah State Masters Champion".

This title will no doubt strike fear in the hearts of Dennis, Steve, Neal and everyone else out there when we meet later in the season.

26 second course PR - I am happy about that. 

Oh, and congrats to all the blog folks who ran. Jake was first overall, Fritz second, Fiddy third or fourth. Many others ran well. 

PM: 7 miles in 51:18.
