before my post got sucked into a black hole, i mentioned i watched the chicago marathon yesterday...

got lucky and picked both the winners. sammy wanjiru was almost a given, liliya shobukhova was just a lucky guess. she was running in the lead pack the whole race, and every time they would show her i would think "she's going to win it"

 the commentators kept saying that she had great track speed (if it were to come down to a sprint), and she just looked stronger and more relaxed than the other runners. of course i wanted deena to win, but she didn't seem all that strong yesterday relative to the rest of the field. she still had a solid race though. around mile 19 one of the commentators said she had dropped out. i guess he meant she dropped from the pack, but i took it to mean she dropped from the race. relieved to see the final results showing she finished 6th with a 2:28:50 and first from the USA. fun morning.

usual tuesday loop around campus. unusually warm morning. wore my headlamp today.

as i was approaching the parking lot tunnel on 4th north, i could hear footsteps in the tunnel. i slowed down. the footsteps slowed down. then i stopped, and the footsteps also stopped. i completely froze and went into defense mode. all of a sudden this short little lady peered around the corner. she looked as terrified as i did. relieved, we both laughed and continued on our way. my heart was pounding though. glad i didn't have to break out my jiu jitsu. it was too early to be effective anyway.

breakfast: apples!!! [step aside bananas]. getting my full dose of quercetin [good hangman word] in with all the apples i am eating. my mom sent me the best apples from an orchard in alpine. crazy good.

AM: the base mileage continues...10 today. 

APM: 1 hour weights/core

PM: 1 hour spin class. i signed up for this class yesterday. it's on MWFs until december. i want to build some extra leg strength. hopefully more leg power will help with the shorter races. also, i want to get in better cycling shape so that i can get to class faster in the mornings. right now i am just a huffing and puffing bike wimp. 

i decided last night that i am going to make a return trip to arizona in january and run the rock n roll half marathon again. i had a lot of fun last year, and it's a great time of year to take a break and go somewhere warm. i need to figure out how to race half marathons, so the more the better. i have this slight issue with the half in that i run it at MP instead of HMP (as evidenced by my half splits in the marathon).

some other thoughts on racing next year:

-no more multiple marathons. 1 or 2 at the most. i want to race at my peak, rather than forcing multiple races when i am worn out.

-half marathons will be the focus leading up to grandma's in june. so i will probably run SLC half (if i ever get a check from this year...ha, only kidding! but really i'm serious) and ogden half, then a handful of 5 and 10Ks, but NO MARATHONS until june.

-this is all far away and subject to change dramatically.

it's fall break here at usu so i wanted to do something fallish. 2 hour trail run in dry canyon. here is what i found...

   

very slow on the way up. the pace was somewhere on the continuum of jog and power hike. plus i kept stopping to take pictures...so i won't really consider this part running. but i put my camera away and got serious on the way back down. no spills today, which was lucky because there was quite a bit of mud and loose rocks. only saw one other person the whole time. she had a dog with her that didn't like me at all. fun!

AM: 5 miles. the weather was the definition of perfect all day.

this afternoon i rode my bike all over logan running errands. nearly died twice. the first one was bad driving green truck man's fault. the second one was my fault. i nearly lost control of my bike while giving the fist to bad driving green truck man.
