10 miles total, consisting of 4 warm-up, 4 mile fartlek, and 2 mile cool down, avg pace 6:46/mile.

The fartlek was alternating quarter miles between 5:00 and 6:00/mile pace.

Splits: 76.9, 91.1, 73.1, 88.6 (5:29 mile) 73.6, 87.3, 73.5, 90.1 (5:24 mile) 75.2, 87.9, 72.8, 86.0 (5:21 mile) 73.6 86.9, 74.7, 72.7 (5:07 mile)

So for the fartlek it ended up four miles at avg of 5:21/mile. It should serve as a good primer for Top of Utah Half on Saturday.

10.5 miles easy in Layton with Dave, Jared, and Jason, avg pace 7:24/mile. We were passing a guy jogging and when he saw us go to pass him, he stared down Dave and then broke into a 100-meter dash sprint...it was hilarious. Lucky for him his turn was right there, because he slowed again and we would've made the pass again shortly had he kept going straight on our route.
