8+ miles

Same run as yesterday. Ran in the evening and it was a little cooler. Tough run here.

My hip is totally fine today. It's weird I could barely walk yesterday and now it's like it never hurt. It must of been a nerve that was pinched or something. Glad it's better though. Very hot out today! I think its hard running in this elevation too.


My hip hurt really bad today. I had a hard time walking especially up inclines. I'm really nervous about it. Right when I should be running more too.

8+miles (4 x 100m striders)

Ran around the wrestling facility and did a few miles on the Idaho state university track. Kept it easy, but was running at noon and it was hot. My right hip was giving some sharp pains about 10 minutes in. Same pain I experienced on Sunday when I started out. Hopefully it is nothing.

Warm and sunny today in Pocatello. Took off from hotel and ran about 4 miles too a trail head and headed up some steep trails to some mountains outside of town.

Raining today and did my first 2.8 miles on the treadmill and it was too hot and boring, so I bolted outside. Felt great outside. Was running at 6:29 pace my last 5.2 miles. Another stressful day, but nice to get out for a run afterwards and release.

14 miles (Twilight 12K- 41:28)

I ran a nice and easy 4 mile shake out run this morning. Skinny Raven put on an awesome race tonight. The Kenyans took control and the winner set a 2 minute PR and ran the 12K in 37:07 which is 4:48 pace. I never seem to feel good in this race, but I ran alright. My time of 41:28 is 18 seconds PR from last year. So, I gotta be happy with that. Bears Tooth Pizza and Beer afterwards!!!
