Went and tried out my newfound discovery of the shoreline trail south of Logan Canyon, starting from Dry Canyon. I was fairly pleased with it, I would definitely go back and run it on a weekly basis probably. The only downside is the trial is narrow so your legs are constantly in contact with the weeds and brush. There are some pretty good blimbs at certain points. The legs felt pretty good, in the first mile the top of my left knee hurt briefly, but quickly went away.

Decided to scout out Green Canyon this morning. My watch freaked out I guess at the beginning, so I had to run in some cirles at the end of the run to get the actual full 10 miles. It's a nice gradual climb all the way up, and I wasn't going super fast, but my heart rate was still up. There are a lot of curves in the trail, which makes it hard to get rolling super fast as well. Dodging the mountain bikers was also a bit of a pain as well. My legs felt good, other than some slight pain in the left knee going down.

It was a sluggish start, and for soe reasonm since I haven't ran hard on the roads for a while, I for some reason felt like I had to prove to myself that I am still fit. I pushed fairly hard up the long hill and then let the big downhill really get my legs going. I rolled with the faster pace for another 2.5 miles after the downhill, running right around 6:07 pace. Took it easy the last three quarters of a mile. I felt my left knee once about a mile in, but then nothing. My legs started to feel all of the climbing I've done by the end of my fast section today though.

That first mile with the stadium hill was really slow today. I used to be able to fly up that thing, granted that was also in the afternoons. I don't really care though, because that mile wakes up my body. Overall my legs just felt tired today, which is probably a combination of trails, a harder effort yesterday, and the fact that I moved 2500 pounds worth of bookshelves yesterday at work. Luckily it was a l ittle cooler this morning and I was in the shade for most of the run. I did feel the left knee a little still, but not really anything to worry about at this point.

Started running pretty early this morning with Tom. We ran the river trail in the canyon out a little over three miles, then turned around and came back. It wasn't super fast, but a nice start to the morning. From there I kept running out of the canyon, along the canyon road trail, then back to my apartment to grab water, and then kept rolling out and back on 12th east. I held a pretty good pace once off the river trail: 6:30s for the most part. I picked things up a little the last two miles. It's been hard to get the legs going this week it seems like at least. Some minor pain in my left knee in the second half of the run, I'm wondering if the trails have something to do with it. 6:55 average for the whole run, mostly due to an extremely slow start on the trails.

After two and a half miles or so I was able to really lock into the mid 6:30s pace and roll with that the rest of the run. My legs felt a little tired from yesterdays effort, but I didn't have any knee issues. I kept getting rocks in my shoes, but otherwise it wasn't a bad run at all.
