I squeezed in a short run before we headed back to Utah, hoping to add a few more when we were home. Miki got sick just about the moment we got home, so I spent the rest of the evening taking care of her. I'm crossing my fingers that I don't get it, but I think I'm probably already a goner.

Miki stayed home from work today to rest, so I did an easy 9 miles up into Hobble Creek Canyon. Running on the soft trails in Kennewick really paid off (despite the crummy weather) and my feet are feeling as strong as ever, knock on wood.

Overall time was 62:23 - the pace was 6:50 - 6:55 pace most of the way, so the run may have been slightly more than 9.

I ran into Sasha today, who wa kind enough to run 6x1000 with me, despite being 13 miles into an already eventful run. It helped a ton to have him run with me, I finally kept pace through the whole workout. Plus he helped me average a faster pace than ever. The trail was pretty icy in places, but not horrible. The slower reps were slightly uphill, and the faster ones on the downhill.

1 - 3:31 (apr. 30 seconds rest between reps)

2 - 3:24

3 - 3:33

4 - 3:23

5 - 3:32

6 - 3:23-3:24

So pretty consistent times - the last two were pretty painful. I'm pleased with the workout, but I still realize how far I have to go to hit my goal times.

Ran home from work today. We overslept this morning, so I didn't have a chance to run before work.

Ran 13 with Sasha and Ted. This is the first complete run I've done with them, and it was an excellent experience. We started slow (7:45 pace I think) and gradually went faster and faster, until the last 3 miles were about 6:10 pace or faster. Sasha said the last one was 5:45, but I dropped off a few seconds. That's a habit that I need to get out of - dropping off the pace when I'm tired. It wasn't that I couldn't do it, I just didn't feel like it. I did the same thing with the 6x1000 with Sasha, and I feel that this attitude is unacceptable.

I think we finished the run with a final time just under 7:00 pace. All in all, it was a very enjoyable run.
