Wasn't feeling too great this morning. Did shortened Main Street loop, then went to weights after. It went 45 minutes longer than I thought it would, probably because a lot of it was learning how to properly do things so that we don't accidentally injure ourselves. By the end I was feeling really faint, probably because I hadn't had anything to eat beforehand. Lesson learned.

Canyon run, 7:55 average. Boy am I sore, mostly in glutes and adductors. Had planned to go for a second run, and I feel bad that I didn't. We had weights again this morning, though today was an easier day (recovery) and our focus for today was upper body to give legs a chance to recover. I wasn't the only one that was sore, thank goodness. Now I'm sore everywhere, so much so that common movements (such as getting in and out of a car, which I did a lot today for work and other activities) are genuinely painful. So, I was a wimp and skimped out on an evening run. But I vow that I'll go for 2 runs tomorrow even if one of them is only 2 miles long. I need to get into the habit of doing two a days if I'm going to increase my mileage.

AM: Backroad, 8 miles at 7:53 average. 

Later AM: Weights. Today was a power day.

PM: 3 miles, 7:42 average. Felt better than this morning. Legs aren't as sore anymore but arms are feeling it. Back and abs are sore too but they're about the same as my legs right now. I must say, I'm glad we're doing weights because I sure am weak at the moment and weights will help with strength, which will transition over to running.

AM: Dikes, 7 miles. 7:45 average.

Later AM: Weights. Another recovery day, upper body and core focus.

PM: 3 miles. Watched the smoke from the fire up at Brian Head for the first mile, pretty fascinating. But really sad, it's destroyed 3 more cabins and doubled its size to 17,000 acres.

AM: Legs felt heavy and I was kind of tired. Canyon run, 7:50 average. It was kind of hazy and smelled like smoke. Hmmm I wonder why?

The fire is now more than 27,000 acres.

Later AM: Weights. We briefly experienced the life of a sprinter! Was kind of fun, but I'd way rather be a distance runner. Too much standing around haha. But the rest is important for these power workouts.

PM: 4 miles, 7:55 average.

Main Street loop, went about a half mile past the hospital then turned around and took University Blvd. back home. Felt good up until mile 8, then my legs got heavy. Took it easy and just ran, just wanted to get some time on my legs. 8:09 average. 

And now just realizing that my math was seriously screwed up, I think I must've looked at the wrong week when I was figuring out how much mileage I needed to get to 50. Oh well! The more the merrier. 

Didn't seem as smoky today despite the fire growing to just over 40,000 acres, maybe it was because I ran in the evening.
