Did a heavy run with added distance

I left earlier and finished my run a few minutes before it became dark. There was one car in the parking lot when I drove away. I added a bit to my distance and did about 2.4 miles.I took no rest breaks during the run.

Another light run to end the week

I left home after dark and did 1.7 miles on the Jordan River Parkway. There were two cars in the parking lot when I arrived, and I passed 2 people while going south from 100th South. I couldn't see them very well in the dark, but I said hello and they answered with voices from the dark. Show More Summary

Did a heavy day

I went running in the late afternoon, and I did a heavy day of 2.2 miles. It was getting dark when I finished and returned to my car. I'm getting used to the distance and am about ready to increase my distance. I took no rest breaks during my run.

Did a light day of 1.7 miles

Judy and I left in mid-day to run and walk along the Jordan River. The temperature was 34 (F), and I put on an extra layer (4 total) to keep warm. I felt fine during the jog and walk. The sky was overcast with just a sliver of sunlight here and there. Show More Summary

Did a light jog/walk today but increased distance a bit

My wife and I went south from 100th South, and I jogged and walked for a light run. I did, though, increase by distance to 1.7 miles from 1.5 miles. I took no rest breaks on the way out and one break on the way back. I did take a short break at the turn-around point. Show More Summary

Did a heavy run of 2.0 miles

It was dark when I started my run, using the 80 second:60 second ratio of jogging and walking. It had been raining during the daytime, but the rain had stopped, and the wind also had stopped. The path was full of water puddles, but it wasn't slippery. Show More Summary

Today was a light day of 1.5 miles

Another full day of 2.0 miles

I did 2.0 miles today and felt pretty good.

Today was a light day for 1.5 miles

The air temperature was in the low 50s (F), and there was a south wind of about 10-15 mph. It was a nice day, though. Cloudy and not much sun, but I was glad to be out running and walking.

Today was a heavy day, and I did 2.0 miles

Today was a wonderful day to be outside. Warmer temperature and more people on the path. There are 8 or 9 cats on the path, and at least three groups of people feed the cats. Most of the cats are wild cats, born outside but friendly to people.

Not many people were on the path. The temperature was in the mid 40s (F), and the sky was cloudy.

Today was a heavy day and I did my 2.0 miles

The temperature was 41 (F) when I left home in the late afternoon. I wore a long-sleved t-shirt over my underware, and I was cold for most of the run, but as I neared the parking lot on my way back, I felt warm since my body was generating enough heat that it overcame the cold temperatures.

Went approximately 2.0 miles

Judy and I drove to the parking lot at 108th South, and we went south for approximately 2.0 miles. It's been over a year since I went on that portion of the Jordan River Parkway, and I didn't remember where the 1-mile marker is. Next...Show More Summary

Did 1.25 miles

Judy and I drove up to the ski areas (Brighton) and walked around Silver Lake. I'm guessing the distance was about 1.25 miles. The distance wasn't great, but the elevation was high and breathing was difficult. In shady spots, there was snow on the ground, although the ground was dry in areas that get sun. Show More Summary
