am - 10 miles with james. 27th south loop. 

pm - 4 miles with james (2 + 2). liberty park.

i'm feeling good again after a week of regrouping camp. my hip, etc. issues seem to be sorted, but it's mostly the mental refresher that i needed. i don't know what happened over this past month, but everything became so stale, and i just needed to step back and focus on other things for a few days.

i had a nice week meeting my cute little nephew (he looks like a skinny spider) and putting more focus into work. some of my students competed in a culinary competition against other schools around the state. it's a big deal for them -- they have been "training" every saturday for over a year and the competition itself is very structured and intense. and it's all voluntary. it requires a lot of dedication and extra work in addition to everything they are doing in school. 

it was fun to watch -- to see their nerves and their focus. this is their passion, and i loved seeing them dive into it with intensity and solicitude. whether it's a 5k race, competitive fish filleting, or something else -- it's all about finding that something, and caring. devoting oneself to a passion and working at it to continuously improve. self-betterment. progress. as james would say, it's about being more of a nerd and less of a loser. this experience revived me.

on a separate note, i ate some ultra-sugared tiramisu last night, and i feel very sick now. it's 12:54pm and i still don't have an appetite, which is unheard of. i do not skip meals.

8. liberty park + sugarhouse square. i get really tired on the uphills now. i'm planning on running the salt&erge half on saturday, and i think it's going to hurt. it's amazing how quickly fitness can erode after months and months of building it up. hopefully i'll get a bit of a boost running at salt level.

11 miles with devra on the JRP. the last few miles were in the dark, which was peaceful/eerie/beautifulcalm/ultraspooky. the run felt good, and it was a pleasant evening out -- i was comfortable in a t-shirt & shorts.

Race: saltair half marathon (13.1 Miles) 01:24:53, Place overall: 3
Easy MilesMarathon Pace MilesThreshold MilesVO2 Max MilesTotal Distance
15.000.000.000.0015.00

splits: 6:29, 6:31, 6:26, 6:30, 6:34, 6:26, 6:26, 6:22, 6:22, 6:27, 6:21, 6:30, 6:24, 1:02

my training has been a bit inconsistent over the past few weeks, and i figured i wasn't going to be very sharp for this race. my target was 6:30 pace / sub-1:25, with a plan to go out conservatively and pick it up on the way back. when i hit the turnaround i thought i could probably speed up enough to run ~1:23, but it didn't happen. i did pick up the pace, but only marginally.

other than the last two miles, i never felt aerobically taxed during the race. but with the weather and my lack of clothing (i wasn't naked, but pretty close), i just couldn't find the motivation to push myself harder today. this is not to say it felt easy, although it did feel easier than i thought 6:20 - 6:30 pace would feel right now. 

i was pretty far behind kassi (she won in 1:21) and tee (2nd in 1:22). i thought maybe i was making up some ground in miles 7-9, but then tee really took off and stretched out her lead on me quite a bit over the last 5k. and i couldn't even see kassi after the turnaround. strong runners, those two.

i've definitely lost some fitness over the last several weeks, but it wasn't as terrible as i had imagined. the weather wasn't great, but it's been a lot worse out there so i can't complain too much. my ailments were all self-inflicted because i thought i could get away with minimal clothing. i realized two miles in that i had made a huge mistake and i was going to die at least five times throughout the race. it should be known though that i dodged all of the salty mud puddles and kept my skechers spotless.

it took my body so long to recover temperature-wise. i put on two shirts, two coats, mittens with hothands, and a beanie. then i wrapped myself up in a blanket and i was still shivering for the next hour. one mug of hot chai and i was cured. works every time. a mug is a cup but a cup is not a mug.
