Really struggled at Firehouse today.  I wonder if the flu is still lingering a little and affecting my body.  Felt like passing out a few times and really struggled on the 2 short runs.

Treadmill run at work.  Started at 8 min/mile for the first 2 miles then ran 7:30 min/mile for the next 3.  Started the last mile at 7 min/mile and progressed to 6 min/mile.  The time seemed to go by much faster this time.  I forgot my headphones so I had to read the subtitles on the tv which probably helped pass the time.

Much better day at Firehouse.  Put in a good effort but didn't feel like I was going to die this time.  Included two short runs.

Ran the New Year's half marathon in Pleasant Grove.  Becky was sick and probably shouldn't have run so we kept the pace super slow.  Finished in 1:59:00 and it seemed like it took forever.

Getting more accustomed to the treadmill at work.  Kept the pace more manageable this time.  Two miles at 8 min/mi, two at 7:45 min/mi, two at 7:30 min/mi and finished the last averaging 6:50 min/mi.

Came down with a head cold so I took it easy on the treadmill today.  Five miles in about 38 minutes.  On top of being sick the last few weeks, I am having kidney pains so I think I may have a stone forming.  This should be fun.

Not a lot of miles but they were definitely quality miles.  Met Tara at Davis Blvd. for an early morning run.  Clean air and temps were not bad (other than frozen hands because of misplaced gloves).  There was definitely a disconnect between the effort we were putting in and the pace that was registering on our watches.  Overall average pace was 8:00/mile and it felt hard.  Not a good sign for my 1:45 pacing duty next Saturday.  The slight upgrades killed me and the slight downgrades felt great.  Wonder if the treadmill running is making the variable elevations of a real run more difficult to handle.

Crazy week.  First chance I have had to run.  I did go to the gym a couple of times but that was only a little running.  Met Tara at Davis Blvd. for a duplication of Saturday's run.  Kept pretty close to the same pace (7:59/mile) but it felt a lot better than Saturday.  We added a little bit at the end to get to 8.

Paced the 1:45 group at the St. George half marathon with RAD.  Maintained a nice 8:00/mile effort from start to finish.  It's a pretty easy pace to lock in.  We had a few people who stayed with us the entire time which was nice.  Nice to get a good run in at a lower elevation and nice weather.  Kind of a reminder of how enjoyable running can be.

Decent run on the treadmill at work.  Started slow and gradually increased the speed.  Not sure if making every treadmill run a progression run is a good idea but it is what I have to do to get through it.  Added an unplanned cool down mile because as I was finishing up the run, I noticed the "naked guy" at the gym was just finishing.  I wanted to avoid that awkward encounter in the locker room.

Chilly run with Tara on Davis Blvd.  We backed off the pace a little and it felt a lot better.

Dropped the kids off at soccer practice at 6:30 am and went for a run while they practiced. Was planning on running on the LPT but it is not cleared in Farmington. Ran on Main Street for a few miles, turned around and headed back. Very cold and the air was not great. Could definitely taste it after the run.

Good all around workout at Firehouse.  Included one 6 minute run at about 7:00/mile.  Felt like I pushed myself more at the gym instead of just going through the motions.  Of course, it helped that I was put in a group with people who have not been going very long.  Comparisons are killing me.  I'm not running enough to be a good runner and don't go to the gym enough to be as fit as others.  Kind of stuck in the middle.

Hit Firehouse in the morning which included three 0.5 mile runs in addition to the usual stuff.  Good all around workout - spent time on all the muscles. 

Decided to do a little treadmill run at work.  Figured I may as well add some purpose to the run instead of just slogging through a few miles.  Warmed up with 2 miles at 8:00/mile then ran 2 miles at 6:40/mile then 1 mile at 7:45 to cool down.  Had a hard time getting used to the faster turnover at first but then was able to get in a groove and felt good pushing the pace.  I have a LONG ways to go if I want to get faster (still not sure I want to).

Feeling a little worn out this week so, even though I packed my gym clothes, I skipped yesterday's planned lunch time treadmill run.  Since Tara asked to run 8 on Davis Blvd. this morning, I didn't feel too bad about missing yesterday's run.  Run felt good this morning.  Averaged 7:58/mile and did not feel like it took as much effort.  Not saying that I want to run any faster.  The effort was comfortable but was still a good push.
