Concrete/road run (Easy w drills) 57:00 [4] 5.0 mi (11:24 / mi)

I was running good so I pushed a bit harder than usual for an easy run. We had some bad storms and the gravel track was muddy and slick so I changed routes and did a hilly route.
Drills were good.
We’re in San Angelo until Wednesday afternoon. Our son flew into DFW today and we drove him here. Our daughter in law arrives tomorrow with the boys. Our daughter’s summer semester has several 12 hr days each week and so we brought her kids with us. That’ll be interesting. They were good for the first day. They go to NJ a week after we get back, so my summer starts then.
I’m very interested in hearing about the IMTUF race. It was on my list to do but I scrapped it because I didn’t think I could train for it while we have co-parenting responsibilities. I grew up in Grangeville. Depending on how you go, you may pass by it on your way to McCall. There’s really only one north south hwy in ID. McCall is gorgeous. Grangeville has similar features on the north side of town. It’s also between the Salmon and Snake rivers and Camus Prairie so it has a lot of diversity and not many people, roads or amenities. Hells Canyon and the 7 devils are there. That is also a nice place to hike.

Trail Run long (2 hr hilly) 2:20:00 [4] 10.0 mi (14:00 / mi)

This run went really well. There was less than a minute walking in the first 2 hrs. I did walk for a minute after the 2 hr mark but I finished strong.
7 PM

Weight training (Wts) 45:00 [3]

I haven’t been able to get to the gym much this year so I found a new leg and core routine.

Hopefully once the kids leave in a few weeks, I’ll be able to get there again.

Concrete/road run (Recovery) 43:00 [3] 3.5 mi (12:17 / mi)

This was supposed to be a trail run but there wasn’t much of a trail here. The best section was the concrete section. The problem was that I was wearing trail shoes and they were too stiff for it.

Concrete/road run tempo (4x1) 1:05:00 [5] 6.0 mi (10:50 / mi)

I never made a full mile at 9:40 even though I gave it all. The first mile was the best @9:55. Miles 2 and 3 were at 10. I kept picking up speed and then blowing up. For the last mile I tried something new. I kept picking up speed throughout the mile. It was @ 9:56.

This was my only free morning this week. I took yesterday off, used my new inhaler and generally did everything to maximize my run. 9:40 is a bit ambitious but I’m going to keep trying. In general, I’m feeling much better than I’ve felt for months. Hopefully I can get the rest of things to align and I can get there.
