6 miles on the track.  Very warm windy day.  the track is good on a windy day, only half as much wind.  Rick Majerus died yesterday, very sad day around here, we are all U of U grads and loved Coach Majerus.

4.65 miles 36:42  7:54 ave pace.  had to work late, no extra miles.  I love running downtown this time of year, lots to Christmas lights, downtown is buzzing with activity and I run through in my shorts.  This has to be the latest in the year that I've still been able to run in shorts.

10 miles 1:29:18  8:56 ave.  Jumped out of bed and ran.  No breakfast, no coffee, no nothing.  I liked this.  I'm planing on doing this tomorrow.  I don't think I could go much longer than 10 on an empty stomach, but 10 seemed just about right.

10 miles  1:34:24  9:26 pace.  Very tired, glad to get through this run.  I think I didn't have much strength because I ate very little yesterday.

10 miles out and back from home in light snow.  Love winter running.  Feeling sluggish and tired, I call this training.  Pounding away on tired legs when you got nothing.  1:33:31  9:21 pace.  wow, that's slow.  I really can't go any faster.

6 miles on a belly full of pizza.  I discovered Little Caesars five dollar pizza.  Could not control myself.  I had 6 pieces at 280 calories per.  That's 1680 calories.  And to think I only burned off 600 of those.  This run was horrible, I hate running on a full stomach but I would have felt worse than I do now.  So for dinner I Had 5 tacos, a couple of cookies and a small bowl of ice cream.  I hate days like these.

 

My uncomfortably full stomach run was 56:42.  That's a blazing 9:27 pace.  Any faster and I would have barfed.  I retrospect, I kind of wished I would have.
