Great early morning run. Except the last few miles the sun was pounding down on me... Augh. Decided to hit the 9 miler loop. Head out towards the spillway when you hit the 40mph sign it's just over 4 miles via the hwy. Turn it around and take the entire North Arm trail back. Need to addon a little past the driveway to hit the 9. Here are the splits: 7:57, 8:12 (hill on the Ogden Mara), 7:55, 7:51, 8:01, 8:13 ( not sure), 8:30 (really not sure), 8:09, 7:43...

A very HOT afternoon run. Temps near or above 100 degrees. Took a ice cold water bottle out with me but, by mile 2 it was warm. Miles actually felt ok - nothing to serious 8:04, 7:57, 7:55, 7:49.

Hoping to get wheelers in tomorrow night!

Wow!!! Decided to hit Wheelers after work, so I headed up there around 5:30 it was a good tough climb for me today. Work took us to Iggys for lunch so, a Fish-n-Chips and a few drinks later I was thinking why didn't I get a salad.

On the way down the main trail I had a prompting to run down the middle of the trail because something was lurking on the trail ahead. I thought ok. I've tried to follow those promptings when they come... and good thing about a mile down the trail there was a monster rattlesnake on the right side of the trail! It made me jump about 15 ft in the air! It was shaking it's rattle like crazy. Who knows what would've happed, but I'm greatful for the prompting!

Great after the storm run with Bro HairDog. We did the Shane Stake Center Island Loop. We pretty much talked the first few miles and then tried picking it up. Both of us were feeling the effects of some sweet h2o skiing this morning. Lake was perfect. 8:45, 8:25, 8:09, 7:58, 7:45, 7:42 last .26 at 5:29 pace... I won. Need a good long run!

Grat early morning run with the Boothman. We decided to do the Garden of Eden race in reverse. It would have been fun getting in the race, but it snuck up on us to fast. Here are the splits 8:35, 8:10, 8:02, 8:02, 8:12, 7:29, 8:27 (spring mtn climb), 6:24, 6:55, 7:09, last .26 at 5:27 pace. Legs felt heavy the first 4-5 miles Pretty much slight uphill those miles. Little break before Spring Mtn. Then a crusier back. Surprised at how good I felt. That's a good sign I guess. When we hit the down Booth turned on the rockets - Had to push it to keep him in my sights.

Time 1:18:49 Avg 7:41 Dist 10.26   (Best pace 4:19)

Early morning pilates class from the mistress of pain. A lot of arms and core work. It has been about 2 months since my last class. It felt good to hurt. Need a good run after work tonight!

Sweet PM run - Ran from Valley School with the Island loop. Perfect temps felt pretty good throughout: 7:53, 7:41, 7:43, 7:31, 7:27, 7:18, 7:31, last .11 at 7:00 pace. Upper body was feeling it through the shoulders from this mornings pilates.

Well the day came and went and as I was about falling asleep on the couch - Booth rolls up and says let's hit the North Arm for a Full moon run... It was sweet. Hairdog hit it with us too. Just had eaten dinner about 45 minutes earlier so I was feeling salsa and mexican fiesta pretty much the whole run. We pushed it pretty good on the way back hitting the last mile in 7:10.

Early early morning run with Chad. We got out a little after 5:30. It was still dark and because of the ballonfest and xterra races the roads were busy. We hit the Spillway N arm trail loop. Perfect morning for a run. I ran most of the way with stomach side control in enforce. Great run!

Watching the kids tonights so, I decided to hit the Tm. Started with 2 miles at 8:00, then 7:47, 7:41, 7:24 and last .25 at 6:40 pace. 1.0 incline. Hoping to get a good week in. I would like to increase my miles this week, but it's the last week before school starts and it's busy!

Great evening run with Chad and Anthony. We ran from the library in Huntsville back home. Good roller stretch around Pineview. I thought we might take it easy, but Chad pushed the pace good. Here are the splits: 8:17, 7:49, 7:35, 7:07, 6:37, 8:29. Shoes starting to feel pretty thin and worn. Will look into replacing them soon.

Great MiddleFork Bridge out-n-back! Got out later than I would've like, but Jamie got out before I did...So there it is. Carried a water bottle the entire run. Felt pretty good, although my right calf didn't loosen up until I was 3-4 miles into it.

No running miles, but a great 2 1/2 mile bike ride with my 6 year old son. We Did the Island loop with some North Arm extension. Doesn't get any better than that! Hopefully will get out for a good run tomorrow.

Good easy early morning run. The wind kept changing directions so, I was constantly running into a headwind, but it felt ok.

Time 51:24 Avg 8:14 Dist 6.25

PM run

Mike called and wanted me to run him through the Huntsville tri-course. It starts at the Port Ramp and takes the Hwy down to the North Arm trail head and takes the trail back to the ramp. Good run.
