Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...

Nothing too special. Restless night and felt pretty tired. Thought about bagging the MMM but did it anyway. From the time I should have kept with plan A. Have a great week!

Sugar House commute run in.

A very rare PM run. I like the AM runs for the cool and the reduced crud in the air but it is nice to run at sunset as well. Just out to Suicide Rock and back. I surged the two main hills there and got a nice complement from a cyclist on my effort. Always nice when someone else can tell that you are trying. Sometimes on those hills I feel like I am giving it my all and going slower than a walk.

First, I want to wish every one heading to the marathon this week safe travel to St. George tomorrow.

Second,  run hard and have FUN!!!

Decided to stick with the two workouts per week theme. Felt a little tired this morning but not as bad as Monday. Once on the track things cleared up some. For how much I dreaded speed work in my past it is a very welcome companion after the injury.

Did a 2 mi warmup to the track not enough but the first quarter took care of the rest.
Avg. 9:21 HR 127

Then did the same 5x400 with 200 rest. Reported split time and heart rate (rest time and HR).

1. 82.8 HR 159 (85/148)
2. 79.4 HR 181 (83/158)
3. 76.9 HR 174 (86/168)
4. 76.6 HR 175 (89/165)
5. 74.8 HR 177

Cool down up to campus, slightly different than last week. 2.5 mi.
Avg. 9:50 HR 149

Overall an improvement from last week and everything still moving in the right direction.

Happy Friday. Very tired this morning. Long but pretty good week. My head was much more in the game than last week. This morning I took a brand new commute run. Much more difficult course starting up hill for the first half mile or so then down through the golf course on the way past the zoo and ultimately into campus.
