Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;
answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

Good run out Sunnyside road and into foothills (up Township to Comera Loma).  Good strong 6:55 pace on flats, 7:40ish up the hill, 5:45ish back down.  Should have finished off 18-19!  Felt strong and relaxed throughout the run.

Short 3.1M easy run at 5am as my wife had to leave for work by 5:30am.  Felt great after yesterday's long run.

7.4M run at lunch.  Wanted it to be a tempo/threshold run for at least half of it, but legs were very heavy at the start and could only manage a moderate pace (6:43-6:32).  Mile 4 was better at 6:29 and in mile 5 through in some threshold pace (5:25-5:50) and avg. 6:17.  Mile 6 was about the same at 6:22 and mile 7 came in at a more moderate 6:30.

No running today.  Drove up to Island Park Reservoir last night and camped with some friends.  We spent the whole day today on the lake...absolutely beautiful.  Glassy water all day...great for skiing and tubing.  Packed up in the late afternoon and drove home.

4th overall, 1st in class.  Winner was Ken Richardson out of Ogden (wife Janae won the women's) in about 16:40.  Overall I am dissappointed in the run, wanted to be closer to 16:30.  First mile was strong in 5:19, but mile 2 sucked at 5:41, mile 3 at 5:38 and last .1M in 26 for a 5:03 pace.  Don't know what happened in mile 2 to slow down so much!

1.3M warmup, and 1.67M cooldown (including a sub 6:00 mile back to house to get family ready to walk back to the parade).

Nice early moring 8.75M run with Jon Allen.  Good even paced with a good conversation.  Don't get to run with someone, so this was a real treat.  We are planning to hook up tomorrow morning for a run as well.

Hot lunch run of 5.3M.  Bad run, got a stitch in my side at 1.5M and had to stop, then again at 2.5M and couldn't really shake it for the whole run.  Total time of 35:50 for 5.3M wasn't a bad easy training run time, just didn't feel good.

2M warmup to Community Park. Met Jon Allen for a 8.5M run down to the river and back at an easy conversational pace. Stitch developed in my side around 7.2M that I never did fully get rid of through rest of run.

Kami wanted me to pace her, so went for a short run after getting back.  Got 1.6M into run when she said her knee hurt, so we walked 1.2M home.

Sunnyside hill to the dump. Reached top in just over 40 min (5 miles). Came down in comfortable pace of about 5:40 avg (except very steep part where I was running about 4:45 for 0.5M). Good run, didn't think I would make the top but pushed through.
