Ran south on the JRT with Jody, Scott, Matt, Reed.   Nice morning for a run.  Felt decent, we did a couple of faster miles.  Some fast buttons got pushed this morning.

Ran on the BST in the Lone Peaks.  Trails were in pretty good shape, still a few pockets of mud.  First mile and a half or so I was very sluggish, not feeling right at all, but finally pulled out of it and started to push the pace a bit.  Pushing the pace on a trail run is always hard to judge, especially when I am doubling back on occasion, then it makes it hard to compare to previous runs.  But I felt like I was pushing the pace pretty good, considering trail conditions, they are still very chewed up from all the traffic while muddy.  1300 feet of ascent and descent in 9 miles.

Ran from Orem soccer park with Jody, Melanie, Reed, Brandon.  Did a couple of 800's at a faster pace.  I think one around 6 min pace and one around 5:45 pace.  Right hip tightened up pretty good, not sure if it is just sore or if there are some issues starting up.

Ran south on the JRT with Matt, Reed and Chad.  We averaged a 6:54 pace.  Felt comfortable, other than some lingering tightness in the legs.  I think my weak hamstrings are causing some of my pelvis/hip/low back issues, so starting a new regiment of strengthening the hammies.  Hopefully that will help some things.

Ran south on the jrt with Jody, Toni, Melanie, Reed, Matt and Chad.  Matt headed back after a mile or so.  On the way back I did 3 miles at around 6:00 pace with the heart rate peaking at around 163 or so, going from memory, then slowed down for a mile then another 6 min pace mile with Toni.  Had to cut the run short this morning due to daughter's knowledge bowl.  So the faster pace was nice.  Felt more refreshed than I have in awhile, and the pace wasn't too difficult, just all the little injuries rear their heads during those pushes.  Hoping they don't turn into anything worse, particularly the foot inflamation and the ab strain.  And it would be nice if the right hip would work properly for more than a day or two.  But it was a very nice day to be out and run.  Isn't it always?
