night run after work. murray park loops. there was a botanical garden, a pond, a bubbling brook, and an ammonia tank. there was also a couple spooning IN the river. this park seems to be more exciting than liberty.

Race: dart challenge 5k 2014 (3.107 Miles) 00:17:54, Place overall: 1

dart challenge 5k. this race is always one of my favorites of the year. there is plenty of competition, as davis xc has an incredibly huge (and deep) team. it's a flat, accurate course and offers a good test of fitness. i have done this race four times, although this year the course was changed due to construction. it was still a flat, fast, loopish course (see here), and the course tool says the difference in estimated flat pace is 5:41 (old course) to 5:42 (new course). so as far as i can tell they are essentially the same.

splits: 5:40, 5:49, 5:53 (last year: 5:41, 5:47, 5:48)

i have been doing a lot of thinking since des news (i'm over it now, but it took a lot of time). i think one of my biggest problems with my racing this year is that i have been trying too hard to repeat or improve upon my 2013 race times and workouts. because of that, a lot of my training has been forced. last year was a lot different. i was coming off a mostly uneventful and somewhat disappointing year in 2012, and i didn't have any expectations for myself. i tried out some new things in my training, and my times naturally came down across the board. that was fun and exciting, but big improvements like that have to taper off at some point.

as i was lurking about on josh EEE's blog recently, he said that it's hard to make big leaps repeatedly. this is what i am learning this year. so many of my workouts have been forced and overly taxing because i was so insecure about seeing splits that were slower than 2013. my entire des news plan was based off of my TOU plan from last year, and i forced myself through a lot of that training. i was solely focused on how the numbers were comparing and i was completely neglecting how my body was feeling (most days, it was not feeling good). the fact that des news went so poorly is not surprising in hindsight. i gave everything i had in training, and i didn't leave anything left to race with (including the basic motivation to run without stopping for sitting/crying breaks). oh my. it's funny how after so many years of running, i'm still making these big mistakes.

i think i took plenty of time off after des news, and i am feeling much better than i have felt all spring/summer. today's result gives me a bit of my confidence back after it was completely destroyed three weeks ago. 

my plan for TOU has been scaled back in intensity. i still have goals for that race, but i am not going to fret and fraz over every little thing as i make ridiculous attempts to compete with my 2013 self. i need to rid myself of that pressure, because clearly i do not do well when it's present. my plan for the next five weeks is to just run to how i feel and let the fitness come (or not). i will not be looking at numbers or even doing the same workouts. i have two more 5ks planned that should be good fitness indicators, and with that i will go race and enjoy my last TOU.

this post is long because james is 606.13 5ks away, so i don't have much else to do.

21 miles. xtreme water wheel loop, slightly modified because i started in murray instead of liberty park. my last long run in utah.

this loop covers just about everything -- murray, holladay, wasatch blvd, THE bike path, foothill, sunnyside, liberty park, sugarhouse, and of course south salt lake. i love climbing up to wasatch and running along the bench that overlooks the whole valley. i caught it right at sunrise this morning. pretty much perfect out -- nice temps, clear, calm.

i pushed the pace over the final 5-6 miles and finished feeling strong. a little more confidence that i can run TOU. admittedly, i'm scared to run the marathon again.

i just ordered 50 pizzas. this is a prank.

8 miles along pony creek road in thelandofthewarmwinds, wyoming. this road reminded me of the jeremy ranch road -- dirty, rolly, cattle gratey, mountainy. elevation approx. 7,000 ft. 

i'm on a weekend road trip to get some altitude training in, as well as say goodbye to the mountain west. i'm camping in a teepee, and i'm spending the weekend without clothes and consuming only soot and bark tea.

free wifi at the general store, which is home to the world's largest jackalope statue.

11 miles up and down scout canyon in the salt river range (afton, wy). gradual climb up to approx 8,900 feet. i ran on a dirt forest road along the edge of swift creek. a beautiful and peaceful run. i did not see a soul, and i started worrying about bears as things became more remote. 

pm - short hike to intermittent spring. ~3 miles. i basically wandered around taking pictures of all the cool stuff i saw on my run, but it was less magical when i wasn't running. then i hightailed it out of afton because it was blustery and cold and this is a summer road trip.
