Personal:

I live in Kauai, Hawaii with my wife and 3 kids.  I ran x-country and track in high school. I had too much fun in college and never tried out for the teams. I graduated from BYU Provo.

My wife's blog is http://hulagirlclark.blogspot.com

This was a sprint distance race, 1/2 mile swim, 20k bike, 5k run.  I think this converts to about 7.5 miles of running time.

AM - 3.2 miles.  So there are 5 weeks until the biggest race on Kauai (Haena to Hanalei 8-mile) I only run about 30 miles a week but I'm going to increase that to over 40 for the next 4 weeks.  I want to do well in the race.  I would like to run lots of miles like other people on this blog but with my family I don't have the time.

Lunch - 5.0 miles.  I am going to to a few 2-a-day workouts so I can get more miles in.  The only problem with my 2-a-day schedule is that I run at about 6:30AM and then about nooon which is only 5 hours apart.  I think most people run the 2nd time after work which would allow more recovery time.  I'll give my schedule a try to see if it works though.

AM - 2.0 miles.  I know my morning runs are short but I want to increase me mileage slowly to avoid any injuries.

PM - Had to go running later in the dark.  4.8 miles.

AM - 4.0 on the Brady loop + a little extra.  Took Shay in the stroller.  Unlike Ty when he was little she doesn't ever fall asleep in the stroller.

Lunch - 5.0 miles at work. I didn't think I'd get to run at lunch today but I did.

AM - 3.1 with Shay in the stroller.  If I keep running in the morning maybe I'll make it a habit to take Shay.  She gets up between 5:30AM-6AM so it gives Heidi a short power nap without a baby crying.

Lunch - 6.0 miles at work. Felt pretty good except my left hamstring is really tight from bending over and pulling weeds for 2 hours on Saturday. One of the few bad things about Hawaii is that weeds grow back in less than 24 hours.

AM - 2.0 miles.  I know you're probably thinking I have to get up at 4AM to run so many miles but I don't....I slept in until 7AM.

Lunch - 4.70 miles.  Did 1 mile on the track in 5:00.  I was hoping with the increased training it would be easier to do a 5:00 mile but it still hurts.

Lunch - 5.1 miles.  While I was at the beach recovering from my run I was recruited my 3 people to play some beach volleyball against a team of 4 Ecuadorians.  We played best of 3 games.  It was a lot of fun but I'm sad to say I had the losing hit in the final game.

AM - 10.0 miles.  I was going to run shorter and run twice today but I had Ty in the stroller and I was trying to get him to sleep.  He has been sick so I wanted him to have a nap today but unfortunately he never fell asleep. Still a good run on a pretty day.  Now off to the beach for some sand and a BBQ!

Lunch - 5.2 miles.  Had to wear a shirt, not because it was cold but because I got a little sunburnt from the fun yesterday at the beach.  It's getting really hot out here.
