17 miles. water wheel loop. the magic drinking fountain has been turned on and the water was as cold and refreshing as ever. i've missed this loop -- it used to be my standard midweek 11-miler, but i haven't done it for about a year because the route turned into a long run when i moved.

here's the route (the drinking fountain and water wheel are at about 9.3):

workout wednesday! JAJAK joined up with markP and friends for 6x800m on the track at highland high. i wanted to run these no faster than 5k pace, so around 6:00. splits: 2:59, 3:00, 3:00, 3:00, 3:00, 2:53 (andrea ran with me the last lap, which was an obvious boost). 400m recovery between each -- i milked every one. 

it's been over two years since i ran 800m repeats, so i was worried about how this would go for me. it actually wasn't too bad at all -- 5k pace felt like the perfect effort for this workout.

we ran grass loops around sugarhouse park for both the warm up and cooldown. sprinklers. ahhhh! allergies. ahhhh! summer is here.

5 miles easy around liberty park. i was so tired that i felt nauseous for the first couple of miles. my work turnaround from wednesday night to thursday morning is slightly oppressive, so on thursdays i usually wait until the afternoon to do my run. unfortunately i'm working late again tonight, so the early AM run was the only option today. hi-yah.

15 miles with the group at jeremy ranch. i knew this run would be tough based on the posts from last week. i thought i was prepared to handle it, but i just couldn't hang today. i was totally fine up until about 10 miles, and then all of a sudden i was broken. i dropped back quite a bit right around the time that james had to stop to stretch out his foot, so he kindly kept me company on my slow trek back to the cars.

at one point james was actually beating me while race walking, and the rest of the group was no longer in sight. i felt pathetic. nothing like being the weakest link! my legs just wouldn't give me anything to work with today. this has now happened to me three times in the last three weeks -- i have no idea why i keep crashing. it has never been an issue for me until now.  i'm kind of perplexed because i feel like i am stringing together some good weeks of training, only to end up feeling slower and less fit than ever before. where is the love, 2012? 

even with the tough finish, i enjoyed this run today. it was beautiful -- soft surface running, gorgeous views, and great weather. the undulations are relentless, but it makes for great training. 

i had to miss out on ruth's again. arg. 

congrats to all the ogden runners. fritz! holy smokes.
