Mi 6 Avg. 9:13 HR 133

PM: Long day. Too many meetings. They were good though, learning lots. Did the direct commute home.

AM: Three days in a row woke up before my alarm. Not much and I'm usually able to get back down for another 30min/1hr but it shows I need to take up some meditation or something to clear my head... Commute run in.

2.5 mi Avg. 10:36 HR 129

PM: What a day!? That's about all that can be said. I opted for a Memory Grove commute run home. It was just too beautiful out and I had too much to think about. An enjoyable run.

Early afternoon run after the Easter egg hunt at Foothill Village. Drove over to Memory Grove as I had not been up City Creek in awhile. Decided to go all the way to the top. At about 2 miles to go there was snow crossing the road where there was shade and the last half mile was impassable running as it was more than knee deep. I decided to march it out up to the sign for no bikes entry into upper City Creek Canyon and the end of the road. That did mess up my over all average but that's fine. It was a perfect day for running. I must have looked like a looney trudging through knee deep snow in only shorts and no shirt on... From the lack of fresh tracks I think I'm the only one to have gone that high today although the lower canyon was packed for this beautiful day. The way down was a bit of a progression. After the snow mile (9:27) I went: 6:04, 5:54, 6:11, 5:37, 5:28, 5:26...

Happy Easter everyone.
