Easy two miles so not a great running day. Had to feed the youth sunday school classes breakfast then I HAD to take Andy to see the Sponge Bob Movie.

Plus I'm kind of sore from yesterday and I want a good run on my day off tomorrow.

Eight miles around the wood-chip at Liberty Park. Swung by the gym on the way home and did some pretty hard lifting/strength training.

I wanted to run long today but I just wasn't feeling it. Just wanted to get home and hang out with the family. Would have been nice to have had someone to run with today.

I messed up my back lifting yesterday and it just got worse during the night. We'll see how it goes.

I surprised myself with a good run tonight. I'm really sore and achy from my lifting yesterday and maybe a little residual from Saturday's race. Just generally sore, achy, and beat up feeling. But Ann and the kids went to an activity at church tonight which I opted out of - giving me time to run. Ended up with a nice 10 miler feeling better each mile. Didn't ever dip below 7:45 pace, so a nice recovery run.

Perfect crisp, clear evening with a beautiful sunset. Wished I could have just kept running west.

Spent some time tonight looking at the blogs of lots of the people who used to post here daily and don't anymore. I know some of them still run, but for some others it seems like running was just filling a temporary void in their life. They were really into it and flamed out. Need to keep an even keel. Anyway, I miss lots of them.

Easy five and then a long walk with Ann. Sunny, clear, and a little bit cool.

Great start to my day! As I was walking through the parking lot into my classrom, I was bombed with about a pound of pidgeon poop. "Showered" in the bathroom sink and changed into a race t-shirt from my running bag.

AM: 2 mile walk/jog around Sandy. Seriously, I ran about half of it so I'm giving myself a mile.

PM: Nice afternoon. Ran a mile on the treadmill at the Sandy gym waiting for my runners to get to the gully. Then I ran 8.25 in the gully - first half with the boys then I doubled back to run with the girls. They managed sub 8 minute pace coming down. I was happy with their effort.

Then I went to the new Fort Union Trader Joe's to pick up some milk, cereal, flowers, and chocolate. And let me just say that Utah Trader Joe's should be called "Sort-of Trader Joe's" because of the absence of Two Buck Chuck. It just isn't the same.

Then I picked up Abby at swim practice, went home and has a dinner of Sloppy Joe's and broccoli.

McFarland USA opens tomorrow. Anyone want to go see it with me? I've got to see a movie on cross country running just out of principle.

10.5 miles on the treadmill. Some hard running. I'm down to 147 pounds.

A night of Cub Scout fun on tap with Andy!

Easy am run around Sugar House. Long run tomorrow - hopefully.

Going to see McFarland USA at 12:45 with Abby and Andy if anyone wants to join us.

PM: Walked 3 miles.

Went to McFarland USA with Abby and Andy. Really good life in general movie, mediocre running movie. Fat runner and runners with linebacker type builds winning state championships. Are there no skinny actors out there? None of the cross country meets in the movie had the feel or atmosphere of real cross country. Also, with the exception of the McFarland coach, all the coaches in the movie were jerks and racists. As we all know, cross country coaches are the salt of the earth, the best of God's creation.

The movie was about a lot more than cross country though and those parts were excellent. Thouroughly enjoyed it as did the kids.
