AM-Long run of 20 easy miles at 6:45-7:30/min/mile. with the last three at sub six going uphill at a grade.

PM-Easy 10 miles at Wheeler farm 4 hrs later. Almost out of gas considering the heavy mileage this weekend. It may or may not train the body to store more glycogen, or on the other hand it may do something else. Normally I would not recommend this to anyone else however, I have been in this territory and I know my body.  Dark Horse out..

Went for 10 easy miles this morning at 7-7:30/mile and then picked up the last 2 at around 6:45-6:24 respectively. It's going to be another hot one today I'm afraid. I was so dehydrated yesterday that I drank a total of 90 ounces of Gatorade yesterday evening and did not even wake up to go to the bathroom! I need to maybe do some of these workouts earlier or a bit later  when things are at least a few degrees cooler.  Ugh... Oh well it makes you tough eh? Or sick..

AM-4x4 minutes progressing from LT pace to as hard as possible in the last minute. Equal recovery period at 7-8/min/mile pace.  1300 east with rolling hills. 13 miles total. Things are really starting to come back now in spite of the increased mileage.

PM-Easy 12 miles at 7:15-7:30/mile. Not bad , just really hot and dehydrated still. 96 degrees.  Figs, almonds and milk for breakfast.  Juice and sprouted bread for lunch with cheese.

AM-Easy 12 miles at 7-7:30/mile on the Jordan River trail/North end.  Felt better towards the end. Early morning.

PM-8 miles easy to medium effort up to Draper Parkway trail and around.  Overdistance run tomorrow so I am taking things a bit shorter and easier this afternoon.

AM-Well, I had started out with the intention of going slightly depleted and a bit over the marathon distance albeit at a slower pace.. Started to feel depleted a little on the trail even though things generally felt ok with the resting pulse and during warmup. Fortunately I brought some strawberry and banana gu that Steve Hooper sent me this week. It went down right well with some water at the fountain stop. Things almost immediately looked better but not wanting to press my luck, I cut the run short, and called it a day.  Stopped at my friends place hitched a ride home after visiting a while. Felt the bonk and so mission accomplished. 22 miles total at 7:30-6:30/mile.  Dark Horse out...

PM-Easy 8 mile afternoon jog to loosen the legs. No time, just let my body dictate the pace.
