Met Cheris and Peggy at Riverton High.  The track was locked.  We warmed up for 4.3 miles. Then we did 10x400 with about 45 seconds rest in between in the neighborhoods.  I would start when Peggy and Cheris did.  That's why I didn't get the full 60 second recovery.  Recovered back to car.

7:24,  (I messed up my timer on 2&3), 7:03, 7:05, 7:31, 7:06, 7:07, 6:49, 6:46

Day 1 of my 18 week training for St. George.

Race: Utah Valley 1/2 Marathon (13.1 Miles) 01:47:41, Place in age division: 2

I got up at 2:30 am.  I should say I got out of bed at that time.  I couldn't sleep at all the night before.  Michelle picked me up at about 3:15.  We parked at the mall and got right on a bus.  We waited right up by the start line.  We were able to use the porta potties about five times without any lines.  That was really nice.  The race started right on time.  We were pretty lucky to have a tailwind for several miles.  I had a gu right before the start and carried my water bottle for the first six miles.  I had to use the bathroom just before mile six.  I lost about 1:30.   My stomach was a little upset during the race, so I didn't dare take any Gu.  I did drink the Nuun that was offered at two of the stops.  I felt pretty good, but I could tell I was slowing down the last few miles.  My goal was 1:45 and top 5 in my age group.  I didn't get the time, but I did get 2nd in my age group.  I was happy about that.  Michelle was 1st in our age group.  Taylor and Gary came to cheer to me on.  That made my day.  We got a free massage and ate some food.  After that we walked backwards on the course about a mile so we could see a friend of Michelles finish the marathon.

8:15, 8:08, 8:20, 8:04, 7:43, 9:21 (bathroom break in there), 7:42, 7:44, 7:58, 8:01, 8:19, 8:11, 8:18 and 7:41

Easy miles on the treadmill at work.  I was going to ride the bike, but decided at the last minute to run since I wouldn't have much time tomorrow.  Pace was around 9:40 with a 1% incline.

I met Cheris and Peggy at the Riverfront Front park at 5:30. We ran 3 miles and then picked up Michelle and Becky for another 10. The last 1/2 mile I started getting a really bad side stitch.  I stopped my watch and walked back to my car.  It was a good run.  Average pace 8:57.

Jackie picked me up at 3:15am and we drove to AF to catch the bus.  It was a little chilly at the top which is just perfect for a race.  I tried jogging around for about a mile, but it  didn't help.  I ate a banana and a bagel at 3:00 am.  The race started at 6:00.  Jackie and I stayed together for about the first 3 miles.  I pulled ahead knowing I would have to stop at a porta potty, which I did just before mile 7.  When I came out, I saw Jackie ahead.  I took me about 1-1.5 miles to catch up to her.  I could tell I was slowing down about mile 9.  Just before mile 12, I got a side stitch and walked a couple of steps.  Bill (1:45 pacer) saw me and encouraged me to finish strong.  I sucked it up and took off.  My goal was 1:43 and top 10 in my age group.  I ended up with 1:43 and 11th place.  There's a lot of fast ladies at this race.  Jackie did great and finished with her goal time of 1:45.  

I took a Gu 15 minutes before the start.  I carried my Gatoraid for the first 8 miles and then tossed the bottle.  I had another Gu at mile 9 or 10.

Treadmill at work.  Warm up 1.5 miles, 6 x 800 at 7:19 with 800 recovery.  The plan called for 400 recovery.  I felt I needed longer so soon after the race.

Met Jackie at Treehouse to run on Wasatch Blvd.  I ran 1.5 before we met up.  Jackie ran 5 before.  Perfect running weather.  I didn't have any Gu.  I carried and drank 12 oz of Gatorade.  I felt really good.  I had a few issues with my left knee.  I'll have to watch that and be extra careful with rolling out.  Average pace 9:38.
