Another long run with the lauch team.  My running buddy Jaymison is coming along.  We have yet to find a consistent pace that both of us can hold the full length.  She goes out strong then gets tired and sore.  We worked on speed walking to keep the heart rate up.  Side aches seem to be gone, leg pain was the challenge for her. 

We ran 5.14 miles in 1:23:05 at a 16:10/mi pace. 

Mile 1- 11:06. Mile 2-16:51, Mile 3-16:39, Mile 4-17:36, Mile 5-17:26

Next long run is down the canyon.  I need to run distance on my own so I can increase my cardio.

Ran the Draper trail with Brynn.  Had to use the construction porta john.  Salsa chicken is not a good meal for the day before. 

Forgot to start the garmin until the turn around.  Ran the last half at a 13:32/mi pace.  I'm discouraged at my need to walk.  Thankfully race is still 9 weeks away.

Ran the Cabela loop with Kara in my older asics.  More walking than I wanted, but we completed the loop in 38:44.2 at a 15:08/mi pace.

Mile 1- 11:39, Mile 2- 16:46

I really need to push myself more.  Run through the pain.  I'm giving up to easily.

I'm only guessing the milage.  We ran hill repeats with the Launch team.  Warm up from trail head to the base of Morning Vista.  Thankfully we only ran to the first turn.  I stayed wtih Jaymison and we walked part of each climb.  I was glad I wasn't the only one walking.   Hopefully the bleacher runs at Skyridge will strengthen me for the next hill workout.  I was so sore from Monday's workout, but this surprisingly helped.

40 minutes of speedwork at Skyridge track.  A combination of running the bleachers and sprinting the 200.   It's harder mentally than sprinting the straight and running the curve. 

For warm up I broke up the first lap into fourths and did the drills we do with the launch team.  I started with 100m of lunges, then high knees, kareoke, and ended with butt kickers. 

I started feeling the pain from those lunges that night.  A good pain...
