No snow, very little mud.</p> <p>PM: 3 easy miles to get to 50 for the week.

It&#39;s being a good week.</p> <p>Heading up to Park City tonight for one night. First time we&#39;ve ever left the kids alone overnight.

Perfection!</p> Sun, 01 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 31, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-31-2018.html <p>PM: Just 3 easy laps around Liberty Park.</p> Sat, 31 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Mar 30, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-30-2018.html <p>PM: Went to the Pipeline Trail in Millcreek Canyon after school. Ran the whole 15k.

After 22 years, I&#39;ve become &quot;minimally effective&quot;. This is the second to the lowest rating.</p> Wed, 28 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 27, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-27-2018.html <p>PM: 6.25 miles. Something&#39;s not quite right with my running. I think it might be sleep deprivation.</p> Tue, 27 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 26, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-26-2018.html <p>PM: Didn&#39;t really run except for a bunch of times up and down the big hill to the upper field at Lindsey Gardens during Andy&#39;s baseball practice. Also did some push-ups. Also went for a walk. Also appreciated the view of Salt Lake from the upper avenues that kept me from moving away from Utah a couple years ago. That&#39;s right, I stayed for the views!</p> Mon, 26 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Sun, Mar 25, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-25-2018.html <p>PM: 8.25 on the treadmill. 7:30 pace.</p> Sun, 25 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Mar 24, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-24-2018.html <p>PM: 6.75 muddy miles on the pipeline.

I felt like a tired, slow, plodding old man.</p> Wed, 21 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Mar 20, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-20-2018.html <p>PM: 6 miles at Liberty Park.</p> Tue, 20 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Mar 19, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-19-2018.html <p>No running today. Struggling to achieve a semblence of work-life balance. Everything discombobulated.</p> Mon, 19 Mar 2018 06:00:00 Sun, Mar 18, 2018 http://Murphy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-03-18-2018.html <p>Walked to the gym. Treadmilled 6.5 miles so I could run and watch basketball. Walked to Barnes and Noble where I read some and had a cup of coffee.</p> Sun, 18 Mar 2018 06:00:00
