10 miles. millcreek + brickyard. 

my shin was sore all weekend, and it still wasn't feeling all that great this morning. i decided i would start out very slowly and assess whether or not it would be wise to continue. everything felt alright from the beginning, and the tightness seemed to work itself out throughout the run. felt great by the end.  

it appears the mayor ordered in some more snow.  

plank: 4:30; L&R side plank: 3:00

8 miles. sunnyside up. chilly morning at 28 degrees. two months ago i commented on how warm that felt. now that it is almost april, i no longer approve. 

PM: 4 miles with james. campus loop. somehow, we magically emerged onto sunnyside and i became all nostalgic and teary-eyed about my morning run. after that -- field house workout. weights, ankle-strap-hip-leg-pull (sans towel), plank, fire hydrant, etc, etc. after that - protein. a giant jar of it. this stuff is expensive. they deliver it to you in an armored car.

SLC 10-miler this morning. this was a fun race on a fun course -- 10 miles of the des news marathon course starting at the base of little mountain. two mile climb to warm up, then eight miles of pure downhill fun. i have never actually been able to run this course without restraint -- there is always that balancing act during des news of running fast enough, but not too fast. today it didn't matter. no brakes. no worrying about the impending doom on foothill boulevard or the stifling heat and quad cramping on south temple. just a fun opportunity to run on a scenic course and enjoy (rather than worry about) a whole bunch of downhill. 

it has been so long since i actually timed myself of a run. i realized this at the starting line when i had to clear my splits off my watch from CIM in december. splits -- 6:39, 7:32 (first two miles uphill -- little mountain), 6:30, 5:27, 5:49, 5:55, 5:42, 5:49, 5:59, 5:57

we were definitely up to snow levels at the start, and little dell reservoir was completely frozen. but it was still mighty warm. in fact, the weather was perfect. i was comfortable in shorts and a singlet, and i even thought about ditching my gloves (gasp!). but i didn't.

everything about this race was great. very low key but still very organized. every mile was clearly marked. and they offered free warm-up aerobics/yoga/stretching exercises the start line. instructor included. 

i started out running just behind a pack of three guys, hoping they could help block out some of the strong headwind going up little mountain. i wanted to go sub-7 on the first two miles, as that is one of my goals to eventually accomplish in des news. however, i didn't even come close on the second mile, and i am not sure if that will ever be realistic. i felt like i was running a 5k. severe oxygen debt. i was looking forward to cresting the hill so that i could hopefully recover and then enjoy the eight mile descent out of the canyon. 

i was running with chad as we went into the downhill section, and soon enough we heard footsteps coming up fast from behind. i looked up and saw that it was walter. he was on some crazy, crazy, long, long run and decided to join us in our descent. he ended up running with me the rest of the time and really kept me going when i became fatigued in the later miles of the race. (thanks walter!) my goal was to just stay with him and keep my legs turning over as fast as possible. 

the final stretch to the finish went uphill into this is the place state park, where i slowed quite a bit. i was pretty much spent at that point. the good part about the finish was adam wende up on the trail above the road, cheering on the runners with his cow bell. awesome.

after the race i cooled down for a bit, somewhat deliriously. then i met james at the field house for another 6 miles or so around the u of u campus. that was followed by some weight-lifting and planking. and that was followed by bananas and almond butter.
