I was going to take the day off, but it was so incredibly nice outside this morning that I just had to run. Went 6.25 in 47:30. Great run.

Took a complete rest day and also ate too much junk. I need to remember to use some discipline the next couple weeks.

4 miles of walking.

Today I did the Best Buy loop around Sandy. Averaged a little under 7 minute pace.

Also did 180 push-ups and 150 sit-ups. 

Veggie Burrito from Barbacoa for dinner. No sour cream. Vow to self... no ice cream tonight! Got to watch the night time munching.

AM: 3 mile walk around the neighborhood.

PM: 9.5 mile fartlek in the gully. This is a pretty good estimate, but my Garmin petered out about a mile into the run. It was borderline hot so I was pretty darn knackered after the run.

Treadmill run. 4.25 miles at 8 minute pace with 5 x 1/4 mile in 75 seconds.

Weights and core exercises after.

Today was the last day of school so I'm done with work until the middle of August. This is way, way, way high up on the list of things I like about teaching. I do XC practice 4 days a week throughout the Summer but that's not like work for me.

6.5 miles in 50 minutes in the gully. I was a little sore from the fast (for me anyway) quarters and the weights yesterday. I ran ar 2:30 in the heat and am actually glad to finally be able to acclimate myself to it.
