Nice run down Payson canyon. Trying to start working in some faster miles to prep my legs for what I hope is a Nebo 1/2 finish around 1:30. Plan was for 2x2mile repeats at faster than HM race pace, but with the route down this canyon it worked better to do a 3 mile tempo (pretty much all downhill), take a breather on the flat past the cattle guard then do 1 more tempo mile on the rolling downhill closer to town. 

First 3 miles were in the 6:30-6:45 range and last less-downhill mile I just barely snuck in under 7 min at 6:59.

Hopefully my quads aren't hamburger the next couple days.

Nice & easy. Quads a little unhappy after the canyon run yesterday.

Great run/hike with Kimi at Fishlake on a beautiful mountain morning. Watched a glorious sunrise and enjoyed the 360 degree views from Pelican Promentory. The 9000+ elevation made the lungs burn at times but it was well worth the pain.
