In St George for the week. I was quite happy about a couple of things today compared to when we were here a month ago: 1) It felt much cooler & 2) The sun comes up later so we get to sleep longer without paying for it by baking in the sun. Easy run for me but Kim made me work a bit while I paced her on some 1.5 mile repeats.

My turn for some tempo miles. A bit warmer today than yesterday but not too bad. Plan was for 3-4 x 1.5 miles with 4 min rest/recovery in between. I felt OK for 3 but decided to only go .75 for #4.  Pace stayed in the 6:40-6:55 range.

Five miles easy with the lovely Kimberly. Looking forward to a 20-miler tomorrow with the St George running crew. Getting up at 4am is always fun!

Joined in with the St George gang for a dandy long run starting at Veyo (the town not the hill) and heading down through Gunlock and ending up at Ivins. The weather was just about as perfect as you could hope for in August in St George. Nice & cool (60's?) at the start and then clouds towards the end to keep the sun from baking you too bad.

I felt really good for most of this run, although I didn't love the hills at the end coming up into Ivins.
