Six miles of ancillary training.

1 mile warm-up on the elliptical

225 floors on the stair master 

PM: 3.4 mile walk with Ann in 57 minutes. Pretty speedy for me as I'm not a good fast walker. We declared child #1 old enough to babysit child #2 while we go for walks. It's a good cheap date too.

Spent a lot of time working in the yard today and it looks pretty decent. I need a new hammock though and can't believe how expensive a decent one is. Mine was a father's day present about ten years ago.

I'll be sad when Andy stops using the word "lawnmower" as a verb. For example "dad don't lawnmower over that tennis ball".

By the way, "ancillary training" is the official coaching term for cross training.

Grilling some burgers now with some sweet potato fries and cold "soda pops".

AM: 4.25 easy miles on the Alta track. Close to a perfect morning for a run.

Thinking I might try a seven or eight mile trail run this afternoon. 

PM: Six miles on the treadmill. Worked up to 9 MPH for a while. Heel is more of a dull ache now rather than a sharp pain. Good news.

Eight miles in one hour on the treadmill.

Still struggling through a running funk. Not looking forward to my runs. The thing is not running bums me out even more.

I'm sure I'll get through it when I come up with a reason to train hard that I can believe in.

Didn't think I was going to be able to run today. Abby had a swim meet in Orem all afternoon. As luck would have it, the meet was at this big rec center with lots of treadmills. So I was able to squeeze in some miles in the long wait between the 50 free and the 100 back.

9.25 miles. Last mile in six minutes.

Heel hurt pretty bad when running fast. So I'm not going to do that anymore ever.

Spent the morning at school trying to jam some more knowledge into my kid's skulls before the AP exam next Friday. Then more of Abby's swim meet in Orem. Those things can drag on as long as any track meet.

Will try and run some later. 

PM: Four easy miles on the treadmill.
