Caught up on sleep. Then just a fun family day. A lot of time at the park with both girls. Also, did an out and back run with Kaitlyn. Caught a praying mantis at the turn around and it hitched a ride back to our house on the stroller. Punctured one of the tires going over thorns (four of them in the tire!!!). The last mile back was tough on the flat tire. Luckily I had bought two tubes last time I was at the bike shop.

Was supposed to be a quick run. Felt pretty sluggish though. Just did the home loop. Avg. 7:51

Rolled out of bed at 4:30am. I don't know how some of you do that every day. Then I crawled into lab. Commute run. Avg. 11:21

Today was not as good as yesterday but not a bad day. My knee was not being my friend though. It took a few steps back on the recovery department and bugged me most of my run. I just do the home loop. Avg. 8:40 HR 136

About the same as last night. Maybe even a little worse. Tomorrow is my off day though so we'll have to wait and see what Saturday brings. Avg. 11:27 HR 125

Nothing too special. Long day at work followed by family dinner out at new restaurant.

Probably over did it but between the perfect weather, being and City Creek, and running with Kaitlyn, I just kept going. I had planned on 8 for today at the beginning of the week and before I started decided I would do anywhere from 2-8 mi depending on the knee. Well the knee more or less behaved so we kept going. Great run and a great day overall. Avg. 8:57
