6 miles. the roads and sidewalks of salt lake city are covered in ankle-snapping ice chunks. the wet and slushy snow from yesterday's storm fell into a deep freeze overnight, which meant extremely uneven and treacherous footing this morning. in an effort to find a runnable route, i jogged-walked-slid my way over to liberty park. the park sidewalks had been cleared but it was still a giant sheet of ice. i gingerly ran four loops and then called it a day. 

after breaking my windshield wipers trying to scrape the ice layer off my jeep, i headed up to the fieldhouse for a workout with james. the usual: leg weights, back extensions, dumbbell side dips, arm weights, 2 laps of heel/toe walking, plank, one-legged bridging, tirunesh dibaba abs.

9 miles. sunnyside up. 

today i did workout A1 of the james moore patented perfectly reasonable training plan: 2 sets of 10 x 1 min on / 1 min off. i tried to keep the effort at 5k pace on the "on" portions, but the unpredictable footing made it difficult in some spots. thankfully, i never slipped. unfortunately, i was totally overdressed.

i saw adam wende on 20th east just off of foothill. it's always nice to see a familiar face in the cold, dark morning. 

PM: i went to the fieldhouse to bring james his shorts, but i forgot to bring his shorts (i'm competent like that). i did a bunch of random stuff while he set fire to one of the ellipticals. arm weights, ab workout, plank, fire hydrant, heel/toe walking, stretching, sticking.

8 miles. sugarhouse loop. i had some major dental work done yesterday, which left me with a few stitches in my mouth. my dentist said it was fine to run but i just have to be careful to not break the stitches open (gross). i started out very slowly and tried not to pound around too much. everything felt normal -- the run went well and i didn't feel like i was causing any trouble to my mouth. 

as long as everything holds up well throughout the rest of the day, i am going to run the SLC track club 5k tomorrow.  i am anxious to race again and get some feedback on my fitness. 

AM2: fieldhouse workout with james.

finished in 19:00; 4th place.

today's race was rough for me, but it was nice to get some feedback on my fitness...

i basically struggled from start to finish. my legs felt all knotted up and i couldn't find a smooth stride. my breathing was much too labored for the pace, and i just never got it going today. the first race of the year is always a bit shaky for me, and i need to remember that this is a starting point for the year ahead. i'm not necessarily disappointed -- i just have this "unsettled" feeling that i know i can do better but yet i couldn't have done any better -- if that makes sense... 

anyway, i am not going to dwell on it. it was a fun morning and a perfect day for racing. the sun was out and the roads were clear and dry. it was great seeing so many familiar faces today -- lots of participation and so many great runners came out to race. the track club does a great job with this series.

to explain those awful photos: it was just another lame attempt at using comedy to cover up an insecurity -- in this particular case i was trying to hide the fact that i was absolutely dying. it didn't work.

in the afternoon we headed up to alta with jake and andrea for some snowshoeing. the views were spectacular and the company was great. it was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.
