 14 with Blake this morning. It’s always nice to just talk with him while we run. I’ll miss that when he moves.

I had to take it really easy this morning because I hurt myself playing soccer again.  This time I have a left quad injury.  Boy does it hurt.

Chase, my oldest son, received his call to serve as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints this weekend. He will be serving in the Billings, Montana mission and starts on May 23.  I've been waiting to see when he was going to leave on his mission before I picked a race to start focusing on.  Now I can start looking for something fun to train for and hopefully get my motivation back.

I was surprised to see I put in a 50 mile week. It didn’t feel that much.

Since it was a holiday for everyone in my family but me today, I decided to sleep in a bit then relax in the hot tub for a bit before work.

No running

I had some extra time before work this morning so I did 16 on the trails.  It's been a while since I've gone that far, especially on the trails which is much more challenging.

I played soccer today and survived the whole time without injury. I ran a lot and was sucking wind a few times.  No injuries but I sure am sore right now.

Still a bit sore from soccer on Saturday, so I sat in the hot tub for about 30 minutes then did some core work.
