I am a family man.  I am married to my beautiful wife Amy (who also ran at Weber and is quite the runner).  We have three beautiful daughters named Evelyn (6 years old), Hannah (3 year old), and Nora (1 year old). We also have our 4th child due in December.

Bryant and I met at Kneaders in Ogden in roughly 12-15 degrees to do our shunts. We warmed up 3-ish miles with strides. The workout is six sets of 5-minutes at 10-mile pace, 1-minute rest, 1-minute at 5k pace, and 3 minutes between sets.

We hit 5:03.8/mile avg for 5-min sections and 4:42.2/mile avg for 1-min sections. This was tenfold better than my shunts two weeks ago on tready (I'm more convinced than ever my tready is not calibrated correctly) and it was a few seconds per mile faster than the 3-1-1-3, so we not only extended the length, but also dropped a second or two per mile average pace. We're getting there....
