Nice and easy recovery run mostly down in the river bottoms.  Quads were pretty hammered over the weekend so before the run I thought I might end up cutting it short. But ended up feeling better than I expected as long as the pace was gentle.  I plan on running easy all week to recover well and focus on big doings this week with all the wedding prep for the big day on Saturday.

Later went to the gym for 20 min XT + core.

Another nice & easy morning run. Still feeling just a little soreness in the quads but other than that I feel pretty good.

Similar to yesterday.  Ran into Kim just before the river trail and ran with her for a while. Soreness in the quads seems to be pretty much gone now.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY KIMI!! WELCOME TO A NEW AGE DIVISION (we won't say which one).   

Day off of work but not for relaxation,  very busy with wedding preparation.  Got up bright and early (4:10?) to get the long run out of the way for the week so we don't have to worry about it tomorrow which is wedding day. 

Did another up/down Provo river trail run.  I'm thinking if I do another one of these I can at least be nice enough to myself to do more down and less up, especially since SGM is kind of enough to give us all that nice downhill.
