6 on the trails.  I'm getting the pelvis rotation thing down.  It is actually more of a swivel than a rotation.  It is simply running with your abs not your legs.  Remember when you were a kid and you were running at the local pool and the life gaurd blew their whistle and yelled stop running and you would go into this speed walk leaning forward and walking with your hips?  Well it's running like that with your hips swivelling forward and back.  To do it your core has to be activated so your pelvis is level and then your hips just swivel back and forth and you can feel it in your abs. Your legs are just along for the ride keeping you up so you don't hit the ground. Now I'm sure you're all even more confused.

Then core.

6 on the trails followed by core.

I tried to maintiain all the form focuses I've added over the last month and I added a metronome to my running this morning set a 90 beats per minute.  I tried to keep my cadence with my right foot landing on each beat for a total of 180 strides per minute.  That is the first time I've ever run with a metronome.  It was just a smidge faster cadence than I am used to, but it was cool how I could run the downhills fast at the same cadence as I ran the uphills slow.

I then had a phone conference with my Kingman office.

Then I ran a little over 3 miles to work.  My car is in the shop, so I'm going by foot.

12 on the trails. It was beautiful this morning...54 degrees, sunny, and no wind. I ran down by the lake. I truly am blessed to get to be out there on the trails all by myself on a day like today.

After spending 9 hours sitting in classes all day getting my CE done, I went to the fitness center here and got in 9 miles on the TM. Then I did some core work. They kicked me out at 8:00. I guess the Aria fitness center is the only thing that closes at 8:00 at night here in Vegas.

7 easy then core in the fitness center before starting another long days of sitting in class. 

How do people who have to sit all day for their work survive?  I’m so glad I usually am up and down and moving all day. 

I got in 8 more after my day of classes. Felt good to stretch the legs out.

One last day of CE. 9 hours of class per day. I feel like I’m on the last 5 miles of a marathon.
