Ran the dog this morning with the temperature in the low 30's.  First time I've ran with the dog in a year and he did good.  3.32 miles at an overall 7:54 pace in 26 minutes.  Nothing special just a fun run.

Nice morning but cold.  The temperature was around 30 degrees.   I wear my sunglasses the glare was bad this morning.  Ran up Pocatello Creek Rd. and turned on Olympus Rd. then down Bench Rd and then turned on Hiline Rd.  Did a Tinman tempo  (6:30, 6:10, 6:14, 6:22, 6:36, 6:42, 6:44).  Ran 14.30 miles at an overall 6:58 pace in 1:38.

Felt sluggish and tired at beginning but got into the run.  I haven't been sleep well lately not sure why.

Ran in the rain this morning on the whole run.  Very cold around 35 degrees when I started.  I was soaked after the 13.12 miles at an overall 7:02 pace in 1:32.  I tried out some new shoes on the run "Brooks Axiom 2's"  and they seem to work well.

Ran down highway 30 and then zig zagged around old town Pocatello in a heavy rain storm.  The rain didn't bother me nor was it hard.  Only the pickups of the wind gusts  made it interesting at times.

No rain this morning, but the forecast showed there might be a 30% chance.  It was cold at 30 degrees when I headed out.  I ran a hilly loop back to my house today one that I haven't ran in along time.  I ran up 15th street and turned up Center St. all the way up to Tuscany Dr.  Then I turned up towards the Hospital on Hospital Way,  then down Buckskin Rd..  Without any effort I ran this mile at 5:59  its all downhill except for the last .2 where I turned on 15th again.  Splits on flat section (6:36, 648, 6:39, 6:58, 6:26).  I also run on Clark and Oak St.  has a side note.  I wasn't really trying to run any sort of training run I just ran as I felt today.  Wasn't motivated to run because I was sleeping in my mind and wanting coffee.

My wife and I are trying to figure out what to do on our anniversary on June 3rd.  We thought about going to Salt Lake City on June 5th and spending a one night there and then one night in Park City.   Looking for discount hotels or prices is what I did all night last night so for the morning run I was a little tired because of staying up a little later.

I'm thinking I probably won't run the Provo Utah Marathon on June 13 if my wife and I are going to Salt Lake City the week before.  I will eat too many bad things and probably not be ready for the marathon the following week.

Totals 14.60 miles at an overall 6:58 pace in 1:41.

Ran 13.53 miles today at an overall 7:06 pace in 1:36.  The weather was cold at 28 degrees but it was sunny and gorgeous.  It's funny I wore my sunglasses and yet I'm also wearing tights and a jacket.  I could have wore shorts today as well, but I choose not to in case of a strong wind.  Where I was running there usually is a strong wind.

 I ran on Highway 30, than turned on Philbin Rd, then on Siphon Rd.  I decided then I would turn on Hawthorne Rd. rather than Yellowstone st., then I turned on Quinn Rd, and then on Poleline Rd, then on Alameda Rd. and back home.

I did run the last mile at a 6:20, but really I was tired today and did care what the pace was.

This morning I got up at 5am to run the Pocatello Marathon course with Barry.  The temperature was 30 degrees but no wind.   I didn't sleep good last night even though I went to bed around 9:55pm.  My wife got up several times because of a migraine that she developed over the day.  My son got up once talking in his sleep.  It was a very restless night of sleep.

The plan for me was to run 20 miles and Barry would run 15 miles.   I dropped my car off at the 15 mile mark the night before so that Barry could drive and come get me when he was done, and follow me for the additional 5.  But I planned to take off ahead of him in the run so that I would be about 3 miles ahead when he finished at 15.   That way he wouldn't have to follow me for the whole 5 miles.  

Barry is really looking good and is going to excel in Ogden.  He's starting to build good endurance.

The run went well I ran 21.23 miles at an overall 6:40 pace in 2:21.   It felt pretty easy and I really didn't push any of the miles.  I had to brown code at mile 6 or my pace would have been better.  That mile was a 9:28, but I sure felt good afterwards.  I'm thinking it was all the syrup I put on my pancakes that we did for dinner the night before.   It must have disturbed my stomach to some degree.

Following mile splits

6:05  (downhill) trying to catch up to Barry after brown code.  Really not pushing the mile at all.

6:25 (downhill) just staying relaxed with little effort.  Finally caught up to Barry.

6:26 (half uphill and half downhill) again little effort.  Said good bye to Barry.

6:08 (downhill) felt great not pushing at all.

6:09 same as above

6:11 same as above

6:21 (little uphill/downhill/flat)  not pushing just running how I felt.  Very easy

6:12 same.  I really was relaxed and enjoying the run.

6:36, 6:42, 6:48, 6:34 6:11, 6:18 (rolling hills)  Not pushing again just running relaxed with not a lot of effort.

6:54 slowed down to have a good slower mile.

I ran .4 mile warm-up this morning testing new shoes out to run in (Avia Lites II) and was also waiting for Barry to come and pick me up.  Barry and I drove up to the Hospital and ran the 10k Heart and Soul city race course that will be held next month.  It's very hilly.  We just ran the 6 mile course easy.  The last 1.5 miles is uphill and this is where Barry and I split apart.

Then I decided to do a 3 mile tempo:

mile 1 5:32 (mostly downhill)   very easy and really wasn't pushing the pace.

mile 2 5:38 (flat) very easy and felt good.  I should have pushed harder.

Mile 3: 5:54 (flat) felt good but the last .2 I could tell I was getting a little tired and losing some form.

Then I ran the rest of the miles how I felt  (6:57, 6:39, 6:50, 6:26) all on a flat route.

 All in all I was happy with the tempo knowing I ran 21 miles yesterday.

Totals 13.60 miles at an overall 6:37 pace in 1:30.

Note: I've had four pairs of Avia Lites Model 1 and Model 2 is just has good.  I would recommend Avia shoes to anyone.  Their very durable up to 500 miles.
