Ran all the way up city creek, gaining 1700ft. Got to the end of the road and was tempted to keep going but I knew I should turn around. It's nice to be able to do runs like this on a whim now, a year ago this would have been ridiculous.

Out in 75:18 (7:55 pace), I thought I was going faster than that but I probably had some slow miles toward the end. Back in 60:18 (6:20 pace) which felt very easy. Despite it being downhill, it's still crazy that I can run faster than my typical base pace for the second half of a 20miler without any difficulty.. It shows that I really am a good downhill runner, no matter what anyone says. Do bikes count as road kill? If so, I had a ton today.

Ran an easy 4 in the AM (very easy) around Liberty Park.

Then I took the wonderful scenic route home from work and crushed it, backpack and all. My backpack has the coolest sweat stains on it now.7.3 miles

I took the super scenic route home. I ran up the small peak just North of the tail end of Emigration Canyon road. I couldn't find a name for it on the maps and it's not very high (5600-5700?). So I think I'll just call it lookout point.  I chose a brutally tough route up though and took a nice rest on the top, it wasn't that clear of a day, but there is an interesting view.  I don't know Utah history, but is emigration canyon the route that the first settlers came in.  Maybe the asked a couple young guys to go scramble up the peak and see what they could see. Maybe. It's easy to see why the settled here then.  I'll figure out the distance later (9?, slow!).

Had a tight schedule today and chose to play ultimate and then walk home instead of running.

Ran 5 in the morning, doing a little Indian Run with the East High School team. Entertained the idea of doing the Draper Days 5k until I realized it was in Draper not Murray (I'm a little slow).

In the Evening ran 7.3 (it alway feels sooooo much longer) doing the scenic route for the last time (for now).  I packed up my stuff from lab so my bag was very heavy, 20-30lbs and lugging it up hills just trashed my quads, removing any desire for a Saturday morning workout.

I still considered possibly doing a workout this morning (I planned a 2 by 5k workout) but my legs hadn't recovered from the night before so I just cruised 11.5
