I was pretty sore after my 13 miler on Saturday. Did a lot of walking, about 5 miles to downtown Sugar House and them to the kid's church halloween party and back home. Plus lots of pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and lunges. 

So yeah, I think I'll run the open race at the Nike Southwest meet and then point to the USATF cross country championships in Feb. That's enough of a challenge to keep me motivated for a while.

No students today - teacher workday - so I can go in whenever as long as I work my 8 hours. Took the kids to school, went for a long walk with Ann, had a relaxed breakfast and coffee.

Totally civilized morning. Now I'm going to drive to work with the sun actually up.

Good gym workout while Abigail was swimming. 300 floors on the StairMaster in 34 minutes followed by 2 easy miles on the treadmill and a hot tub soak.

Corn chowder for dinner!

Easy run around Sugar House. Cool, crisp, fall-like.

Nice two mile walk around Sandy in the morning just to clear my brain. Planning on a good gully run with my team later.

Todays run was a failure. After 4 miles I bonked and had to walk home. This happens every now and then but only when I run in the late afternoon or early evening and have forgotten to eat for several hours. I literally got dizzy and had to stop in Sugar House Park.

I got home, had a peanut butter sandwich with honey and feel a lot better now. 

I think we have a couple more great days before winter hits this weekend.

Easy 2 miles in the dark at AM cross country practice.

I think it's good to start the day with a little exercise.

PM: 6.25 miles on the treadmill at 24 Hour Fitness.
