AM: Nice 8 mile run in about an hour.

I've been tracking my buddy Bret throughout this morning in the NY Marathon. bret.fastrunningblog.com. He's trying to break 3 hours for the first time at age 45. This is agonizing! He's right on pace at 22 miles but slowing just a wee bit. 6:56 FOR MILE 22! He was 1:29:10 at the half. I'm stressing over this more than my own races! 

 Update - Bret has to run a 19:54 for the last 5k. I think he's going to run 3:01. I HOPE I HAVE TO EAT THESE WORDS !

Seven miles on the treadmill at 8.5 mph.

Hope to get in some lifting this evening between the kids homework, Abby's math tutor, and Andy's swimming lessons.

Three miles on the treadmill plus some really hard lifting. I'll be sore everywhere tomorrow.

Finally got our car fixed today. For the last couple years the electronics (it's a 2007 Hyundai Veracruz) have been completely psycho. Since Hyundai has this 100,000 mile warranty, we've had it in  the shop a bunch of times and they can never get it fixed. We have just chalked it up to demon possession. Well, turns out after Ann got rear ended a couple years ago after dropping me off at the Salt Lake Half starting line that the body shop jammed some wires up where they aren't supposed to be and the exhaust system burned through them. Anyway, the guy finally figured it out today and now it's fixed. Happy day! Now I'll have seat warmers this winter.

I'm feeling really good and can't wait to get back to some serious running. But I'm going to wait a little while longer.

9.5 on the treadmill this morning. Started at 8 mph and worked up to 9.1 at the end.

HUGE event in our neighborhood! A new Chick-fil-A opened and so Abby and I went there for breakfast after I ran. Had me a chicken biscuit and a cup of coffee. Pretty good coffee. Then came home, grabbed the chuck-it and exercised the dog for a while at the park.

Cold, blustery day here in Salt Lake. 

 

PM: Mile warm-up. Weights
