.25 mile warm-up :-)

20 miles on the Jeremy Ranch Road with Jake, Nathan Krah, and Josh - but mostly with Josh as Jake and Nate left us. 2:27 felt much easier than Monday. Great run.

Rough day yesterday. After my long run with Jake, Nate, and Josh up at Jeremy Ranch, I mostly spent the rest of the day sick in bed or in the bathroom.

Google "beet juice poisoning". I pretty much had all those symptoms. Still weak and depleted today.

More running around Liberty Park plus striders.

Last day of school. Year number 18 in officially in the books. Looking forward to a nice summer. Heading to Minnesota on Sunday to visit Ann's family and do this little race in Duluth. I'm also doing Jay Johnson's clinic for coaches in July in Boulder plus a four day AP conference at Cherry Creek High School near Denver.

First day of summer!

Abby had a sleepover last night and Ann had to teach a class down in Daybreak at the U hospital down there so Andy and I did a 3 mile walk with a little running. I'll give myself a mile.

I think I've decided to run this race in Minnesota the week before Grandma's.

Noon: 11 miles around Sugar House Park in 1:05:20. Ran the first and last miles in 8 minutes and the middle miles in the low to mid sixes. Warm.

Liked my new Saucony Fast Twitches and my new Garmin Forerunner 15. Nothing like some new gear for motivation.

Pleased to see my fellow Furman Paladin, U.S. soccer star Clint Dempsey, on the cover of my new Outside Magazine!!!

AM: Four miles of walking/running with the family around Sugar House.

Did Jay Johnson's "Core H" routine after. I think the H stands for Hell! Especially if you haven't done it for a while.

Heading to the Fort Douglas museum for a Cub Scout activity with Andy now.70th anniversary of D-Day and probably the last "round number" one with a significant amount of WW II veterans around.

PM: 6.25 on the treadmill at the gym during Abby's practice.

18.25 in 2:16:20 around the neighborhood, SHP, and the Highland track. Ran the first two easy and then kept it right around seven minute pace the rest of the way.

Felt fairly easy and effortless.

This was my sixth week over 70 miles since late March/early April. Last year I only had three weeks over 70 miles in the same time frame and they were way spread out. This year I've done six out of the last eight.

PM: Abby and Andy and I walked to Chick-fil-a for lunch (3 miles) through the AWESOME new "Sugar House Draw". Then we went to Old Navy to pick up some really cheap clothes that were, no doubt, made by child labor in China.
