it was kind of a weird day/run for me today. i came home from work and crashed, and COULD NOT wake up from my nap. i kept waking up and thinking "i really need to go run...it gets dark so early now" and then i would drift off to sleep again. i don't think i have quite recovered from my sleepless weekend. so once i finally forced myself to wake up, i got out the door and on to my run, but i was in that fuzzy/dreamy sort of state and it took me a few miles to shake it off. it turned out to be a nice run. although it looked eerie outside when i left, the temperatures were quite pleasant. i ran in shorts and was not cold for any portion of the run. i finished with 3 x 30 second strides, and i am now feeling wide awake and refreshed. i am not sure what happened today. i don't usually like sleeping during the day because of how i feel when i wake up. but i guess i needed it because my eyes did not want to be open this afternoon.

i went on the chiuaha route again today and got through safe with no sightings.

average pace 7:58

10 x 3:00 min @ 5:56 pace with 2 min. recovery between each

5 miles this morning before work @ 8 min pace

3.75 miles this afternoon. looped around liberty park. lots of slushy snow, mud, wet leaves, etc. but i stayed warm and enjoyed the sunshine despite the super-cold air.  i ran with my friend thomas. he is running the snow canyon half this weekend and i am jealous! it was nice to run with someone for a change, i am a solo runner 99.999% of the time, so it mixed things up a bit. 6:50 average pace.

15 miles this morning. I felt tired and sluggish at first, but warmed up to a nice pace after about 3 miles. The morning was clear, so it was pretty chilly, but it is going to make for a beautiful day! 

 1:52:09 / 7:28 average

 so that concludes my 55-ish MPW portion of my training. i should be getting around 65 MPW for the next few weeks, followed by some 70-75s. that is the plan but we'll see what kind of time i have...the holidays are by far the busiest time of year at work. but hopefully i can manage my time well enough to get the mileage in. lots of doubles for sure.
