Monday, May 5-  core/weights 35 min
Tues.- nothing    Wednesday- core/weights 40 min followed by 20 min (2 mi) run
Thurs- nothing   Friday- nothing
Saturday- 14 mile run.  felt pretty good overall... sore after though (to be expected).  Beautiful day for a run!  Lexy's team beat the other Oak Canyon team handily

Monday, May 12- core/weights 1 hour. 
Tuesday- 4 mile run... this was an adventure.  It was 10:30 at night when I decided I really needed a run.  So, I got my headlamp and headed out (with my wife telling me I was dumb).  I ran from home to the water tanks and up that dirt road going into the mountains.  I won't lie...It was a little freaky... the clouds were low on the mountain tops and it was very quiet except for the owl that I could hear.  It did help me run a little quicker though.
Wednes-  Kynia's BDAY!  Can't believe I have a kid out of her teenage years...20!  Wow...  I did weights/core for 40 min.  Also, Lexy's last Bball game... they played the winner of the loser's bracket, which was the other Oak Canyon team again (they played Tuesday night and won by 2 pts in overtime).  They played great!  The final score was 52-2.  They 2 pts was from 2 free throws.  kind of sad, but the other team didn't make one basket the whole game.  That's just how good they were.  We went and got dinner at Subway on the way home.
Thursday- 5 miles   Again, at night, I went and ran at the dirt track behind Orchard Elem. School.
Friday- 40 min weights/core, followed by 2 mile run on indoor track.
Saturday-  I started planning on running from water tank to battlecreek and back... 8 miles.  Along the way I met and chatted with Gary Wood.  Very nice man who has done Squaw about 9 times.  He knows a lot of the local Ultra running community (marc Sanderson, etc.).  Told me about another trail...also, he has set up trail camera's and has seen cougars, bears, etc. Crazy to think and know that they are all over in the mountains above us!  He said he'd be at the finish line at Wasatch... I hope to see him there (meaning that I finish).  I only did 6 miles... I was feeling very fatigued.  Probably from doing something everyday this week... It's good as I've got to pick my training up.

Spring and girls Bball

Monday, Feb 20- Did a 1,000 meter swim at pool.
Tues-  40 min. lift/core, followed by 2 mi run (20 Min)
Wed- nothing
Thurs-  Did 20 min. warm up walk (1 mi), then 35 min lift/core, then 2 mi run (20 min)
Fri- nothing
Saturday- Did 9 mi of hill work (mostly hike uphill and run downhill)-- this was 2 hrs total workout time.

Monday, Feb 27- nothing
Tuesday- nothing
Wednesday 40 min. lift/core followed by 2 mi run (20 min)
Thursday- nothing
Fri- Did 5 miles on the treadmill.  Note: my treadmill is on a 1.5 incline, so the times don't quite match up to what distance I do.  This was a 60 min run with about a 10 min walk afterwards.
Sat- Ran 8 miles in hills-- was very muddy and lots of snow.  I was running towards PG, but due to very, very mushy trail I turned after only going about 1 mi after dry canyon parking lot. But the trail from/to the water tower was good overall.  So, that was about a 4.5 out and back.  Then I ran up the fire road... at the top it was soft snow that I ran for about 3/4 miles on.  Reminded me how much I like running in good snow.  I was hoping to do a 13-14 mi run this weekend, but settled on the 5 Friday night late followed by the 8.  Deer count: 0

I've got to get out and get more training done.... spring is coming, so that will help.  So will the end of tax season.  Personal note:  Lexy's Bball 7-8th grade team won their first playoff game (I coached...or to say, I sat on the bench and did the sub'ing) like 75-13 against Provo team.  This Sat they won 60-9...the other team scored those 9 in the first half.  This week they play the other Oak Canyon team that's pretty good, so should be fun.  Lex scored about 20 pts the 1st rd and about 16-18 this Sat.
