I plan on going to the track next week and seeing if I can do 8 x 400 in 75 sec average with a one minute standing rest. Doubtful but possible.</p> Thu, 14 Aug 2014 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 13, 2014 http://acorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-13-2014.html <p>South Temple to V Street and down the grove. Felt good.</p> Wed, 13 Aug 2014 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 12, 2014 http://acorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-12-2014.html <p>Ran thru Holladay in the rain. Was time pressed but was happy to finally run a bit quicker, felt really good on the run.</p> Tue, 12 Aug 2014 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 11, 2014 http://acorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-11-2014.html <p>Memory Grove to V Street with a little tacked on at the end.</p> <p>I&#39;ve got a case of the Mondays.</p> Mon, 11 Aug 2014 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 09, 2014 http://acorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-09-2014.html <p>Usual route up to 2nd ave to V Street to 11th and down Memory Grove.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 09 Aug 2014 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 08, 2014 http://acorn.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-08-2014.html <p>Still running about 5-7&nbsp;miles a day&nbsp;and slowly improving with the lower HR stuff. It&#39;s somewhat monotonous. &nbsp;I am weight training 3 times a week&nbsp;and don&#39;t monitor my HR on those days so I&#39;m wondering if that affects aerobic improvement too. Anyway, I plan on sticking with it for another week and if no significant change,&nbsp;I&#39;ll return to my normal plan of MWF with the group and a tempo or speed day on one of the other days. Running slow and alone is not much&nbsp;fun.</p> <p>Wanted to share <a href="http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&amp;field-keywords=wannabe+distance+god">this</a><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Wannabe-Distance-God-Passion-Running/dp/1479118834/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1407554012&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=wannabe+distance+god"> </a>with the blog.
