Ran the SLC 1/2 course with Jake, Andrea, Allie and Fritz. Apparently, they all wanted to take shortcuts in their training so we cut .5 miles off from Liberty Park. I felt a little weak today and when I was done I felt like I'd gone 20 miles instead of 12, but I'm still chugging along here.

Math loop about 18:10,12:20,19:20,12:20 for a total of 62:10. Not great, but not terrible either. I felt really terrible because I was thirsty and sore. Compounded with being out of shape and you'd expect a poor showing. The reality is that 62mins is "ok" and it is actually pretty promising when I put it in context. When in good shape, I would probably be able to manage a 59 given my current workload and the conditions. (It was also really windy, which left me parched after the first few miles).

6:27 avg. (Flat equivalent=6:13)

Jafaja run: 9 miles and 3 step.

I'm thinking of starting the following mini-slam

"Indian Summer Quad Masher Tour"

July 14th Bryce Canyon Half (1800foot drop)

July 28th Timp Half (1800foot drop)

Sept 8th Mt Nebo Half (3100 foot drop)

The nebo half is ideal prep for the main event:

Huntsville Full Marathon: 3800 foot drop

Finally it all ends with:

Halloween Half (2200 foot drop)

I guess I could just make it Timp, Nebo, Halloween Half and call it "Quadsterf*$!". The races that combine inane logistics with absurd courses, whatever.

Anyway, I decided last night that I will be most likely running SLC full as a workout. I will attempt to hit half way in 1:22-1:25, after that I'm not sure what will happen.

Low key pre-marathon 5k. I wanted some honest competition so I enlisted my friend Andrew to come race me (I figured Fritz would crush me).

Anyway, I knew I was in trouble right off the bat as I was having trouble breathing going up the first hill. When I'm training hard (read slightly overtraining), I tend to have difficulties maintaining a high heart rate. I was forced to back off considerably and I fell back into 4th place behind Levi Pace. I feel kind of bad for Levi, because every time I race him there is always someone (his dad) yelling at him to go faster at every turn. It kind of stresses me out. Anyway, I stuck with Levi the first mile, which was the hilliest and hit a 6:04, putting me some 40 seconds behind fritz and maybe 20 seconds behind Andrew.

I started to push hard as the downhills came and it seemed like I was making up some ground. I ran 5:34 for the second mile and Andrew was still far away. My stride felt pretty smooth but I was having trouble with my turnover. Anyway we turned the final corner and I made a bid to catch Andrew. I almost caught him, but he heard me coming and had a little something left. I didn't have the normal turbo-boost today (maybe not enough to ear, i.e. nothing?) and he left me in the dust. I was happy he was there though as he kept me running fast in the last 1.1 (6:09 5:35 pace). I ended up not very far behind Fritz in the end (~30 seconds) so that's a good sign. Time wasn't great but the course was tough. I'm also beginning to think that my slow time was more that I am having difficulty with the mileage rather than being totally out of shape.

Afterwards I ran home 10 miles through Tanner Park.
