AM- Up into the hills for some meditative running this morning and you know I came home with some interesting thoughts about things that have been a struggle for me lately. I went running this morning instead of going to church and I'm ok with that decision allthough others within my family and circle of influence may not be.  It's times like this you find out who your friends really are and what kind of character and compassion people have.  I just could not bring myself to go to church today and I'm not sure I ever will again.  My son was baptized this last week into the LDS church and I am happy for him even though I was not able to perform the ordinance.  I'ts the whole Word of Wisdom thing ie Wine, coffee etc. Those of you who are LDS will know what I'm talking about.   I'm not even really sure if I should have posted such personal thoughts up here but I needed to get it off my chest today.  You know I even discussed this with my bishop at length and I asked him some very pointed questions about it including as to why people who violate this health code by overeating, and generally not leading an overall healthy lifestyle are allowed to perform sacred ordinances and carry a temple recommend.  He really did not give me any satisfactory answers unfortunately.  I've been invited to attend a Christian assembly that is close to where I live by a friend of mine. I think I may go this time and while this is going to be a very difficult transition I know that I have finally made my peace with God concerning these things.   

12 miles total at 8-7/min/mile.   Dimple Dell loop. 

Happy 4th of July everyone!

AM-Just enough time for an easy 10 miler this morning.  Sandy bench.  7-8/min pace.  Mainly 7/min most miles. Started out slow and let the run just come to me this morning.

PM-No run this afternoon. Busy with cleaning up all the junk in my house that has been pulled out with the recent painting project.  Besides..  my legs are not feeling speedy anyway. The heart rates are really good for a given pace, and breathing is easy but again legs say I need a break.  Has any one else experienced this before? I can't think this is a glycogen issue as I put away a pound of grapes, some berries and half a container of Neapolitan Ice Cream last night for dinner and that was on top of a grilled cheese sandwich!  Again energy levels are good and heart rates are good but legs don't feel the same way unfortunately.  I'm going to err on the cautious side and nix the second run this evening.

Long run this morning with 2x 2 miles at fast AT effort.  Last 4 miles picked up at MP effort.   Debated on going longer but with Des News looming it does not feel like the right time anyway.   16 miles Wasatch drive course.  Hilly..

PM-Easy 6 miles this afternoon. Took a nap and had some lunch and then also did some job hunting errands.  Bleak...  Oh well, not much I can do about that right now except keep trying. Went out late afternoon for 6 miles easy jogging at 8min/mile.  Darkhorse out.

AM-Easy 10 miles up to the bench via 9400 south out and back.  Feeling better with boosting my carb intake now.  10 miles total at 6:40-7:30/mile with some pickups in the middle for turnover and form practice.   Focused on foot plant and knee drive mainly.

PM-4 miles easy this evening. 7-8/min pace. Trax loop.  Wife was watching 6 hrs straight of "Ann of Green Gables",  I had to get out or I was going to lose it 95 degrees or not!
