Another crazy day, but got my training in. Early in the morning before going to the temple ran with Stuart. He did a time trial - Slate Canyon Loop (2.11) in 14:40. He is in a better shape than I thought - I gave him a goal of breaking 15:00 and felt it would be really good if he got close. The loop is short but tough - I like it because in 2 miles it discovers problems it would take 6 or so to see on a flat course.
Afterwards, did a two loop tempo at marathon pace with a pickup at 5 K pace at the end. I initially intended to only do the last 0.5, but seeing my splits made me a bit excited and I decided to do the last 0.75 instead. Hit the first loop in 12:17. Last 0.75 in 3:55, last loop 12:00, total time 24:17.
Felt better than yesterday, but still experienced the quad cramp up problem on the kick. This is to be expected, though - I am in the middle of hard training with strength emphasis.
Wore the ankle weights for the rest of the day after coming home from the temple. Got in 3.5 miles of always on the run/kids run, all with ankle weights. Benjamin really made me work on his kick - he hit the last 100 in 23. With the ankle weights, Joseph in the stroller, and at the end of a long work/service day I really had to dig in to stay with him.
