Alarm went off at 2:30 this morning. The dog started harassing me right away so I took him for a quick walk and fed him. He's used to thinking that his day starts when I get up I guess.

Had a cliff bar and some juice and a cup of coffee. Took a shower and headed to the gym at about 3:30.

Ran 30 miles on the treadmill in 3:57. The slow pace is because I had it in my mind that I might run as many as 40 miles and I didn't want to push it. But I quit at 30 because I was kind of tired and loosing interest in the run. Kept the incline at 1.5% the whole way.

Not sure why I did this run? I did it on the treadmill because it's way easier on my foot.

Now I'm home in time for Ann to go to yoga and to take the kids to church. I'll probably nap some this afternoon.

Third longest run ever after my two Grand Canyon runs.  

PM: Hiking and picnicking with the family in Mill Creek Canyon. Legs feel good. Foot kind of achy.

11 miles at 7:30 pace up and down the Jordan River Parkway after work. Beautiful afternoon.

Well, I'm all the time sore and achy everywhere. Knees, shins, feet... even after days off or easy days.

I've read lots about how some runners adapted to the realities of an old body and about 60,000 miles on the odometer. John Keston (the first over 70 guy to break 3 hours) trained every other day with long two to three hour walks on the "off" days. Might have to start making some concessions without surrendering.

I just forgot to run today.

Ann had to work tonight so I just hung out with the kids. Went to the Bees game.

8.25 miles at 7:30 pace while my young scholars were taking the AP U.S. History exam.

This is my favorite "working" day of the year - where I am literally not allowed in my classroom until noon while they administer the test. So I wander in a little late, read the paper and drink a cup of coffee in the faculty room, go to IHOP, wander around aimlessly for a while, and then run.

Going to show the wholesome, family friendly movie "We Bought A Zoo" to the five or six kids who will bother to show up for my 4th period class.

Met Jeff Shadley down in Sandy early this morning for a really good run in the gully up into Little Cottonwood Canyon and back. Lots of hills and sand so felt like more than 13 miles.

Hoping to meet the crew up at Ruth's for brunch now.
