Fourteen combination treadmill and stairmaster miles. I did 551 floors in 60 minutes which is a new PR. There was a small pond of sweat under the thing when I finished. Why do I sweat so much more on the stairmaster than the treadmill?

As a bonus, I got to watch the Clippers - OKC game while running. Another advantage of treadmills.

Legs are wobbly now.

4.25 miles plus some push-ups, sit-ups and assorted core stuff. Was going to do more but I was feeling flat and a little sore from yesterday. So, opted for some easy recovery.

Nine miles in the gully on a beautiful afternoon.

We had the JV region track meet this evening at West Jordan High School. This meet is open to all the kids who didn't place at the region meet last week. It's tough to watch some of my seniors like Jacob Allred run their last high school races. Jacob will go down as one of my all-time favorite runners. I hope he's one of the ones that "gets it" and that he will stick with running for a lifetime.

Finished watching The Rookie with Dennis Quaid tonight with Andy. Fun.

Eight miles around Sugar House Park at a civilized hour for a change. The sun was up!

I took a half personal day today since my kids are taking the AP exam and I don't have a class until 11 am. So I'm taking Andy to school and going to the Blue Plate for breakfast with Ann.

PM: Eight more miles around the neighborhood.

Nine "lunchtime" miles in the gully.

Spent most of the evening pouring over that Steve Magness discussion thread Jake linked to today. Good stuff for a high school coach.

Deep funk today... Richard Sherman is definitely better at life than I am.

Will try to get in a run around 8 pm when I get back from Andy's Cub Scout meeting.

AM: Easy run around Sugar House before heading down to Provo. I'll do another run with a few of the coaches after the 3200 this morning.

PM: 13 miles in Provo with Timo, Ashton, and a couple other guys.

Track will be over after today and I'll be able to re-claim my weekends!
