I took the scouts skiing Saturday in Southern Utah.  We had a great day as it snowed the whole night before so there was a lot of powder which led to some fun skiing and a nice quad workout.

Today I did 10 on the trails easy at a low HR.

I took a rare midweek day off from running yesterday simply because I was tired. Today I did my weekly hill repeats. 1.5 miles to the hill, 60 minutes of repeats, then 1.5 back for a total of 9 miles.

10 at HR under 140 on the trails. It was a bit cooler this morning, but the sun is coming up a bit earlier which in nice for trail running.

I just wasn't feeling it from the start this morning, but I went for it anyways.  I did the first 10 miles with Blake at a low HR and it was easy, but I could tell I wasn't feeling quite right.  Then I took off hoping to run 6 at mp.  Instead I did 5 but couldn't even hold goal mp for 3: (6:47, 6:57, 7:06, 7:15, 7:43).  That was pathetic, but I gave it a strong effort. Then I had to get home and even though I went reallly slow, those last 5 miles hurt.  Today was one of those character building days that are probably good to have every now and then, but are no fun.

It wa 60 degrees, a little breeze, and raining lightly this morning so I was excited to get out on the trails and enjoy the different weather. I put in 10 keeping HR under 140. Legs were still I bit tired fro yesterday but felt fine.
