AM-Easy 5 miles on the treadmill this morning at 7:30/mile pace.

PM-15 miles easy out to Draper township and back.  Pretty warm this afternoon but was doing ok.  I have been experimenting with some lime flavored sport beans and they seem to be working pretty well.   No dips or crashes really so I think this may be something for future races especially if I ever commit to do doing an ultra.

Tough run today up Little Cottonwood canyon this evening.  No time taken, just mapped out the miles and went by feel.  Sped up when I felt good or recovered and slowed down when I felt like poo.  So needless to say my percentage of mp and threshold work is a rough guess at best today.    Just put in the efforts.   Little Cottonwood is a damn beast to say the least!  4-8% grades on average to give you an idea.  92 degrees farenheit.   

By the way, Walter drove up next to me and said Hi as I was hunched over.  His expression changed a bit as he drove off. Must have been how bad I looked!  I was so dehydrated I almost did not make it home.  Lesson learned..

Just an easy 30 minutes today at lunchtime out from work.   4 miles at 8/min mile avg.  Very easy jogging for recovery.

PM--Easy 6 miler after work.  Just easy jogging this afternoon.  60% mhr.

PM- Some more miles this evening on the trail.  4 miles very easy at 8min pace.  60% mhr or so. This is the down period of the week coming back up again in intensity as my two days off from work come up.   It's totally frustrating at times to not get the sleep or recovery I need just because of the weird hours I have to work at.  Just have to be creative and tough until I can find something less draining.    If any one has any ideas I'm open to any and every suggestion.  And by the way pay rate is not a big issue.

AM-3x5 min hard at 5k-10k effort going downhill and then flat for the last two miles.  90-98% mhr with 170 bpm popping up on the last quarter.  Quick cooldown and then a big 4 egg sandwich with fruit for recovery.  9 miles total. 30 min nap.

PM- Did a few very easy miles just jogging to speed recovery along.

Easy 6 mile jog for recovery at 7:30-8/min/mile pace.  7th east out and back.   Day off tomorrow hopefully..  Enjoyed some Stevie Ray Vaughn on my MP3 player while I enjoyed the view coming back home.  Nirvana..   Happy 4th of July everyone!

I have come to some conclusions about different training methods amongst various groups of runners.  It's mainly genetic...   However, there are some ways although limited that you can excel and realize your full potential and I mean yours and not someone elses.   The Japanese method is a very good method but it is not for the working man who has a very physical labor oriented job. The time needed for recovery and refueling is rather impractical to say the least.   This being known, we turn to the past successes of blue colllar runners who in spite of their circumstances excelled at a very high level.    We take a page in history and turn our eyes toward  the 1985 London Marathon for our next study..
