I met my SIL up Provo Canyon this morning. She is fast and knew she would push me hard from the start. I did this run back on October 10 alone and was anxious to see if there was improvement since then.
The run up the canyon seemed to take forever and I felt the incline. I took a GU at mile 5. I went to start my watch again and it had lost satellite and I couldn't get it going. I was totally frustrated because I wanted to compare splits from the last time I did this run. So I reset the whole thing, but it took 2.5/3 miles to get going again. So I estimated on those missed mile splits. Grrrrr.....
I felt good on this run, but I could tell I was working hard. I was definitely breathing hard by the end and my legs were tired. It was windy up there today!

When I got home, I changed clothes and headed downstairs. I was freezing so it felt good to get moving and warm up. My arms are very sore now. This is the end of my 3 week cycle and will start my rest week on Monday. I'm still feeling really good about how my training is going. I didn't have any major aches this week and count that as a blessing.
10 side to side lunges (funny...whenever I do the first set of these, my hips and knees always pop....and they always feel better after!)
10 ball squats
10 single leg hamstring lift
50 calf raises
10 front row (not side row)
10 shoulder cross over
10 front raise
10 overhead press

Long stretch and foam roll. Time for a nap!
