Personal:

I started running at age 40 (14 years ago!)  I am married to Harold, he is a super supportive husband and we enjoy running and biking the trails along the Wasatch Front together. Between us we have 7 children and 9 grandchildren.  I am really having fun trying new races in scenic parts of Utah, I am a newbie in the ultrarunning world, I am slow, but love everything about it!  I have a lot to learn,but I am enjoying the journey.

lower body work out at bootcamp

Hiked from Mill D to Desolation Lake with Kim. My legs were so trashed from bootcamp that my knees gave out 4 times on the trail, and I fell on my butt, it was a slow motion fall that didn't hurt, but I felt like a silly drunk that couldn't stay upright.

 A new instructor at bootcamp, he was trying to impress the boss I think and about killed us.  My arms will probably not work tomorrow.

I am off to do my run with Julie, I will probably come back and adjust my mileage. 

My legs are still sore from yesterdays bootcamp and my 3 1/2 hour hike.  And why is the scale not moving? oh, yeah, because I am consuming so many calories to keep up my energy, I don't know if I will ever find the right balance, but I am happy to feel strong and healthy.

I was afraid to go up in the mountains with questionable weather. I ran from my house to the Jordon River Parkway and met Julie and did 3 miles with her.  Nice and overcast. I should put in another 9 this afternoon, but I doubt it will happen, lots to do today.

3 miles at bootcamp.  Done.  Harold had to work until almost midnight to make a deadline, and I couldn't sleep without him, I am tired, I really struggled thru bootcamp.  Julie just called and said she wanted to cancel our run, great minds think alike.  Off for a nap now.

My plan was to do a long run from my house to the Farmer's Market downtown, but it started raining buckets and there was lightening and thunder, I called Harold and had him pick me up.  Hopefully it will be dry this evening and I get in a few more miles.  The thought of PC next weekend sends chills up my spine.   Gary said he would pace me, but that will be a  painful test of his patience, I have not put in my homework.  I will have about 5 weeks after PC  to train for St. George, heaven help me!!! 

PM  - 2 mile hike with Harold

I had the most brutal lower body work out at bootcamp, and then hiked Gobblers Knob with Kim.  It was a hard climb, but so worth it.  We did the round trip in 5 hours. We could see from the peak, SLC, Brighton and Park City, it was like being on top of the world.  That was our grand finale for our summer hiking, Kim is a teacher and goes back to school next week.  We have been doing this for 10 years now, a wonderful summer tradition.

I was going to sleep in this morning and not go to bootcamp since I have the marathon sat., but at 4:15 I was wide awake, I went to bootcamp and did a modified version of what everyone else was doing, mostly walking on the treadmill, it felt good to take it easy. 

Now I am heading off to do 3 miles with Julie.

I pick up my packet at Wasatch Running today, and get my blocks and gu, I am getting excited about Park City, my only goal is to cross the finish line.  It is a beautiful course, it will be a great day.

Park City went just as I was hoping.  I was hoping for about a 6 hour time, since it was a training run for SG, I just wanted to finish feeling good, mission accomplished, I feel great!!!! The bootcamp has helped, I had no aches or pains, my legs felt much stronger than they did during Ogden.   Gary and Maurine and I started at 5:40 and ran together for 6 miles and then Maurine took off.  Gary paced me the whole way, it was great to have him there, he is always so positive and fun to be with.  Saw several friends along the way, Rachel and Smooth at about mile 14, Ben at mile 16, Karen at mile 18, and a real treat was this handsome young man that came up to me and said, are you Leslie Peterson? He was the race director from the Red Mountain 50K and recognized me, he rememebered Gary too, and we chatted for awhile. He said there is going to be a Red Mountain 50K next year.  It is my all time favorite race!!!!!  Sorry no splits or any more details, it just doesn't matter, it was a beautiful day and I feel like a million bucks. Harold is going to give me a massage now, and then we are going to the Gallivan Center to see a Kalai Concert.  Oh, after the race, Ernie and Gary and Harold and I ate at Squaters. It is a most perfect day!!  Thank you Gary for hanging with me, you are an excellent Sherpa and  Pacer and friend.

I just did a 3 mile hike with Julie and the dogs on the Pipeline. I was so happy to wake up to zero pain.  This is huge for me.  I can go up and down stairs without any problems and use the toliet without assistance!!  Thank you Bootcamp!!!!

 

Have a great Sunday!

Harold, Devante and I took a short hike up to the Bell's Canyon Res. this afternoon.  Legs are still feeling great, this is pretty exciting for me.

Bootcamp has been super hard this week, is it the instructors kicking it up a knotch, or that my body is really just lagging from the marathon, not really sure, I had no stiffness or soreness after the race, but maybe my body is still in recovery mode. Anyway, another butt kicking session, on acouple of the crazy exersizes they have you do, they had to take all the weights off me so I could use proper form, I was the only one who had to do them all sissyfied.  Oh well, most of the people in the class are kids in there 20 and 30's, so it is not too bad that have to drop the weights for the Trail Running Granny, I guess. 

Off to run with Julie!

 

Have a great day!

Ran the parkway with Julie for part of the time and then with Laura White.  Lots of runners out for the the SLC teaser training run. 

Did an evening run with Maurine and Odee on the Pipeline.  Maurine treated me to dinner at Zupas!!!!  Thanks Maurine!!! 

Note to Maurine:  I should have let you believe I was faster than a speeding bullet!  But I can not tell a lie!
