Total Distance

14 miles to end the week. 7 out on the Murdock canal trail, a little passed highland glen park. It was hard but not as hard as I thought it would be going 14. 7:59 first mile haha getting my legs loose after the race a couple days ago and stuff, then 7:21, 7:16, 7:17, 7:18, 7:32, 7:15, 7:18, 7:13, 7:12, 6:56, 7:06, 7:20, 6:54. 

There were a few miles that dropped off a lil, but most of the miles were 7:21 to 7:12, so I was very pleased with that. 7:18 avg pace for the entire run. Very good run to complete one of the best training weeks I've ever had. In a pre season ranking the Lehi boys came came in at 21st in the nation so if our guys that have had some injuries get healthy we can do awesome things this year. 

Shout out to Jacob Roberts the speed skater, who also ran a little bit of track for us this year, cuz I saw him out getting a run in. 

Shout out to me for putting in 66 miles this week and being the highest in the mileage board I ever have.
