Zero miles running.

Plenty of lawn mowing and associated yard work though. Plus a nice walk around the neighborhood with Ann.

Did anyone here listen to a band called The Replacements back in the 80s? One of my favorites. They had a song with a line that went, "the plan was to sweep the world off its' feet so you sweep the garage for the neighbors to see". Happy Town I think the song was.

That's how I mostly am. I'll get ambitious sometimes, but just a little bit.

Seven miles in 55 minutes. I wasn't able to get out of the door until 8:30 PM. Nice run though.

8.5 miles in 1:02.

It would be accurate to say I'm less than motivated to train hard this week. I'm happy to be getting in some minimal miles. I did run into Jon Kotter tonight and ran a couple with him. Passed the time quicker.

They're talking about 32 degrees tonight! Tights in May if I do a morning run.

Zero miles running today. Lots of working and shuttling kids back and forth to activities.

Eight miles in the early AM. Cold, windy.

Don't let this become the Fast Mud-Run Blog! Just say no. 

 

PM: 4.5 miles on the treadmill.

Then I did some strength/core exercises.

AM: Two mile walk around Sandy thinking about what I might learn my students today. Too nice out to sit at my desk.

Planning on an 8 mile gully run with some hill repeats this afternoon. 

PM: 8.25 trail miles in the gully in 1:05. Not a bad time for the gully.

Picked Jon Kotter up this morning and went up to Jeremy Ranch. Almost a perfect day for a run up there.

15 miles in 1:53:30 plus a handful of striders at the end. This was maybe the quickest I've ever ran this run.

We saw four deer and one moose. The moose was walking right down the dirt road and didn't seem very shy of humans. 

Managed over fifty miles for the week in five days. I've been feeling pretty strong the past couple days.
