10 miles on the track.  1:26:43  8:40 ave.  Wanted to run faster but held back, used my head.  Leg feeling better, I'm sure taking yesterday off helped a lot.  Here goes another week of pounding, lets see what happens.  I like how my leg is feeling.

7.11 pm miles 1:04:37  9:05 ave  finally decided to start back on my B street route.  It's good to be back, I know this is how I hurt my leg over the summer, I could really feel it running downhill.  I used to fly down these steep downhills all summer long, today, nice and easy.

10 miles at the track.  really did not want to run but forced myself,  had to keep talking myself into not quiting. I really wanted to get 10 in today but it was a struggle early.  The first 5 miles were very slow,  7 8 9 10 were progressively faster and felt good.  I read somewhere here on the blog that days like this are "good" training days, I believe it.  You got to go out and pound the miles even when it's the last thing you want to do.  100% of the time you are glad you did it.

1:29:02  8:54 average.    9:52  9:32  9:29  9:20  8:55  8:47  8:37  8:30  8:20  7:40

10 miles on the track  1:23:46  8:23 ave

Very windy day, that's why I chose the track, half in your face, half at your back.  Running on a windy day usually bugs me but today no so much, actually quite enjoyable.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Felt pretty strong today, forced my pace down, I want to keep my legs juiced for Thursday.

10 miles behind the Capitol and half mile up City Creek  1:33:13  9:19 ave.  First run in the snow, slight breeze, pretty cold.  Seriously considered logging only 6 miles but I maned up and did 10.  This week will be on the light side due to the race on Thanksgiving and other various weekend activities.

Clear and cold day.  I was dressed perfectly for the temp (somewhere in the low single digits) but my face has never been colder, ever!  Other than that I did not feel any effects from the cold.  This race is supposed to be a 6K (3.73 miles) but it seemed longer, someone with a Garmin said it was 4 miles, which sounds more accurate to me based on the race times.  The course was changed due to low temps.

I have coveted a metal from this race for years.  They are quite stylish round glass.  I would have been overjoyed with 3rd place, so needless to say a 1st place in this race makes me very happy.  In fact, based on the results posted after the race it looks like I was the top Master runner.  Wow, that's not going to happen very often, especially in a race this size (800-1000) I suspect some fast boys slept in this mornining. 

 

Edit:  After subtracting the walkers (47) there were 495 runners.  14 in my AG  77 masters.
