12 miles. liberty park/sugarhouse.

started the run with a 5k time trial at liberty park. once again, james gave me a two minute head start and then tried to chase me down. i ran 18:58 this morning, compared to 19:33 two weeks ago. the effort felt about the same as last time, so i'm happy with the progress. this is the first time i've cracked 19 minutes this year after several frustrating attempts. it's a good confidence builder going forward, but I would still like to drop another 30 seconds or so before i can really feel confident going into des news. i'm not so sure about the sub-18 at draper days next month, but i'm going to keep it as the goal for now. 

long cool down around sugarhouse to finish out the run.

no run this morning. wasatch back relay tonight and tomorrow -- ultra style with team wasatch running center.

 MY LEGS (not my limbs) TOTAL MILEAGE PREDICTED START TIME
 7 & 8     7.4 miles  8:48 pm (friday)
19 & 20 10.6 miles3:22 am (whaaa)
31 & 32 9.6 miles 11:10 am (saturday)

i was originally going to run this with james and fritz, but they are both out so we had to do some team rearranging. this was actually supposed to be an all-male team, but i jumped in to replace an injured runner (and now 3 of the original 6 are out)!

they are aiming for 7:00 average and an overall win (which will be a three-peat), so there is a bit of pressure to run well. i'm aiming for 6:30-6:45 pace on the first two legs, and 7:00 on the last (or whatever i can reasonably manage without getting us too far behind).

  • although i had a lot of fun, i don't think this is really my thing. it's just not smart for me to do this. i felt vulnerable to injury the whole time, and i'm not a big fan of the overnight sleeplessness and messed up nutrition. i'm also not a fan of mass gatherings that involve porta-potties.
  • a big thank you to wasatch running center for providing the opportunity and the sweet gear, and a shout out to kevin and trent (my van buddies) for running great despite their very, very difficult legs.  
  • i have a terrible sunburn, which is my own fault for being negligent in my susncreen application. this bodes well for wearing a wedding dress next week. 
  • i ate an ultimate sandwich for dinner.
