First run of the New Year. Had a great weekend off of no running. Had sometime to relax and hang out with the family and let the body and mind heal a little bit before the grind of training for a Spring Marathon comes around.

Met with Riley and Ken early, did a couple of miles then came back for Jon and Denver, Did a couple miles then looped back for Bret. From there we did the old post loop then headed over into South Ogden. We ended up running into Manny on the way back and he did a couple of miles with us also. Great start to a Monday.

Pretty frustrated with this workout. Was way more consistent last time I did it. Looking at the last set I thought I was on pace but I was way off and slower than expected. 

Taking 3 days off last week to rest could've played a factor for sure. Also I look at the positive that I finished the workout and its another one in the bank. Hoping the legs will be back by next weeks race.

PM 3.11 on the Treadmill

Recovery run

Felt like blah today! Legs were noodles, and just felt like I was going thru the motions. Glad to get this run over with. Now off to the foam roller, then the hot tub and winter crest on the legs for recovery.

Felt alot better today than yesterday. Though there is some fatigue still in the legs, but I should be ready to roll to do some type of workout tomorrow.
