emigration market loop. my runs keep getting earlier as work keeps getting busier. things came to a full boil yesterday. oh my. 

at the risk of being too boring, here are two interesting things for today: 

item of interest #1.  item of interest #2.

14 miles. tanner park death loop with james. we skipped out on the group run this morning because i have been operating on very, very little sleep and today was my chance to somewhat remedy that. also, group runs just aren't the same without andrea -- she is our guide! we'll all get back to it soon enough. everyone is going to be healthy in the fall! 

this was a good run for both of us this morning. we averaged 7:49 for the whole run, which i think is decent for the amount of hills and climbing over the first 8 miles (relentless). we both picked it up on foothill and finished out the last 5 a bit faster: 6:48, 6:38, 6:28, 6:12, 6:02. of course all of these splits are deceiving since we were running down foothill and sunnyside, but the effort was there. james says the flat equivalent pace would be 30 seconds slower, which sounds about right.

6 miles. westminster loop. my typical friday routine is a 10 miler, but i'm cutting back this week to see if it makes a difference in how i feel tomorrow (dart challenge 5k). 

PM: bike ride around town. i stopped at the london market to stock up on mcvities digestive biscuits (the UK's version of the graham cracker -- although it's not a cracker, it's a cookie -- but it's called a biscuit. biscuits are also scones, crisps are chips, chips are fries, and crackers are explosive christmas dinner toys stuffed with jokes, metal puzzles, and paper crowns. quiche is quiche). 

for tomorrow, the ideal would be to meet or beat my time from last year (18:32). this would be a good feedback point and would let me know i'm on track for TOU. it would also mean a full minute drop from last week. that seems kind of ridiculous, but at the same time i feel like i should be able to run an 18:30 5k right now. i was pretty confident i could run in the 18:40's last week, but it didn't happen. if tomorrow goes like the last two weeks, i may have to revise my goal for TOU. based on my recent race times, sasha's predictor puts me at a 2:55:55.

dart challenge 5k this morning. in my opinion this is one of the best and most competitive 5ks in the state. it's full of budding cross country stars and former davis high standouts, and it's all organized by corbin talley (he has it down!) 

predictably, the race starts out fast. it's a skinny elbow-throwing fest for the first 100m and the energy is high and intense. my race was very similar to last year -- i went out a little too fast and then faded at the end. my first mile was 5:48 (compared to 5:50 last year), followed by a 6:05 and a 6:07. my legs felt very drained and in the last mile i realized my arms were aching because i was pumping them so hard to compensate for the lack of leg power. 

stefanie talley came in first, with natalie haws in second. i'm happy with the result of the race, as i feel like this is where i should be right now. last week's race left me feeling concerned that i had really derailed myself by running des news, but after this week i feel like i'm coming back into form for TOU. i didn't run quite as fast as last year (0.715% slower), but the time is within range of where i should be at this point.

TOU is four weeks from today. more accurately, it is 27 days, 16 hours, 53 minutes, and 13 seconds from right now. i'll be pacing 1:30 at the TOU half next weekend, followed by a 22 miler in two weeks, and then the layton classic 5k one week out. i will have to see how these next few weeks go, but i'm going to stay focused on my goal of sub-2:50.
