I ran out past Mini GU and then back to the house via canal road, I felt okay for the most part, my lungs were still feeling the effects of the cold that I have had over the last week or so but other than that it was a good run. I need to get back into the swing of things now that the Holidays are over, no more excuses. My average pace was 8:53 with a total time of 54:22.

See ya Monday.

I ran the Payson park loop after work and it was good enough to run in shorts, I felt pretty good, I'm still fighting this darn cold and my cough but it seems to be getting better, the air quality doesn't help. My average pace was 8:53 with a total time of 55:25, it was a good start to the week, I would have ran this morning but I had to take my mom to the doctor so it kinda screwed up my plans. But all is good.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU corner and then back to the house, I ran after work today again as I slept right through my alarm this morning, I don't know what happened there but I must be getting old! I felt okay but the last mile was a little labored, but all in all it was a good run and I'm glad that I was able to fit it in today. Two days in a row baby, I'm on a roll, my average pace was 8:46 with a total time of 53:09, I was able to run in shorts again so that was nice. That is one good thing about the afternoon runs is sometimes it a lot warmer.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to mini gu corner and then back to the house via canal road after work... I felt okay but not great. Average pace was 8:56 with a total time of 54:15, lighter day tomorrow, maybe. I might just go the full amount. I'll see how I'm feeling.

I got off work early today and decided to run the Payson Park Loop and extend down to the park, I felt good lung wise but my poor legs were shot from the get go, very tired with no zip. I'm okay with that as today was about covering the distance and not speed. My average pace was 9:12 with a total time of 1:06:04, on a good day I would run this route in under 60 minutes but I need to build up to that and I know I'll get there. Very happy with this week so far and tomorrow will be another easy run and just get in 6 miles minimum maybe more, it will depend on how my legs feel.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini GU Corner and then back to the house via canal road, I felt a little choppy on the way out but then on the way back I started to get into a pretty good rhythm... As I got back to the house I was feeling pretty good so I tacked on another mile and it was my fastest mile of the day, I felt like I could have gone more but I didn't want to over do it as I have ran 30 plus miles this week. So a good end to the week, my average pace was 8:57 with a total time of 1:03:38. Not real fast but I know as I increase my mileage the pace will start to come down, and as I lose the weight hopefully that will help as well. My weight before I left running was 174 pounds so I have lost 6 pounds over the last 3 weeks so that's good.

See ya Monday

I decided to stay inside today as it was raining like crazy and I wasn't in the mood to get wet, so I did 30 Minutes on the elliptical and then I ran for 30 minutes on the treadmill and I went 3.4 miles in 30 minutes. I had a couple 200 pickups at an 8 minute pace but other than that I kept it just under a 9 minute pace the whole way. I finished up with some push-ups and a little stretching, it was a great workout and I'm glad I was able to get it done.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu Corner and back to the house via canal road, my legs were pretty tired and not very zippy... On the way home a nice black lab started following me and ended up escorting me home, I was able to get a number from his tag and call the owner so they could come and pick him up. My pace was slow but I stopped for a minute and I forgot to turn off my watch so my pace and time were a little messed up, it had me at a 9:23 pace with a total time of 57:12. Most of my miles were sub 9:00 except for one so it was a little messed up. I have some pain on the back side of my leg were my knee bends, it loosened up after a little bit but I hope this doesn't become a problem, its pretty stiff and sore right now. I might need to ice for a bit...

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Payson Park loop today but I didn't extend down into the Park, I didn't feel real great on the way out but on the way back on mile number 4 I was able to get into a pretty good rhythm and that mile was 7:54. I then just tried to slow down and keep my rhythm and enjoy the run, my average pace was 8:51 with a total time of 55:10, I have had a pretty good week so far so i am happy with that.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work today and ran out to Mini Gu and I felt pretty good again on the second half of the run, my average pace was 8:41 with a total time of 52:45.  I ran with a pretty heavy heart as I lost a good friend over night and it's been a pretty sad day... He was a great doctor and a great friend and he delivered both my kids, I remember what a comfort it was to have him as our doctor and will never forget all the great times golfing and hanging, they will be cherished memories for sure. Rest in Peace Jae Baxter and may all your drives be straight and true from here on out.

See ya Tomorrow.

I ran out Past Mini Gu and then out to Gu Corner and I felt really good today for some reason, I had a 7:48 mile on mile number 5 and then my average pace was 8:28... I haven't beat the 8:30 guy for a while now and I didn't feel like I was working real hard at it either, so it was a great way to end the week. My goal is to add a mile each week to my long runs until I get to 11 or 12 miles and then just hold there for a while, I really want to pace myself and not over train and get injured again. Total time was 1:08:22.

See ya Monday.

I decided to do some hills today as I have not done any since being insured last year, I ran up to the mailboxes via Mount Loafer school and then I ran down Woodland Hills Drive to canal road and then back to the house. Once getting home I extended out about a half a mile and then back to the house. My average pace was 8:25 total time was 55:54, pretty darn good considering the first 3 miles are pretty much uphill and steep, I had a full mile on one of the downhills and that mile was 7:22, I wasn't really pushing it on that downhill section I just let the hill do the work. I felt really good on the uphill not to tired at all so that was a pleasant surprise, It was a great run and I feel like I am on the right track. I finished with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Mini Gu Corner route, I kept a really nice 8:25 mile pace on the way out and then my legs got a little tired on the way back, I knew they would after the harder workout yesterday. I feel like I am turning the corner so to speak, I hope I can keep this up. My average pace was 8:33 with a total time of 52:11, light stretching afterward.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Gu Corner and then back to the house, I then tacked on a couple more out to the old barn on canal road. I average an 8:40 mile on the way out and then I was averaging an 8:30 mile on the way back, I felt pretty good and its my 3rd week of 30 plus miles per week. I will cut back a little bit next week, I will run every day but less miles. I want to be smart. My average pace was 8:37 with a total time of 1:27:07, I had a great week of training and it was a good run to end the week on, I'm actually starting to love running again.

See ya Monday

This will be a little bit of a cut back week for me as far as mileage is concerned, I've had 3 really good weeks in a row so I want to make sure I don't over do so I will ease back a little on the mileage this week. I ran out past the old barn on canal road and towards Payson and then back to the house, average pace was 8:49 with a total time of 37:30 I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push ups. It was a beautiful day today, shorts and short sleeves on the 26th of January, pretty darn nice.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past the stake center and towards Mini Gu, since this is a cut back week I stopped a mile short. I felt pretty good and the pace was up beat, my average pace was 8:22 with a total time of 35:58. I had a couple of sub 8:15 mile paces in the middle, 8:12, 8:09. It was another beautiful day and I am surely spoiled but I'm not going to complain.

I ran out past the old barn on canal road and then down Elk Ridge road and then I turned after hitting my mile two which was the bottom of the hill and then I turned and headed back the same way, a nice little mixture of flat and downhill and uphill. My average pace was 8:27 with a total time of 33:46, I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups.  It was a very fun workout.

See ya tomorrow.

I didn't get home from work until after 5 but I headed out towards Mini Gu corner but stopped at the horse arena which is just short of a mile from Mini Gu. I was having problems with my watch so I reset it and headed back to the house. I had two miles that were in the MP range, 7:55, 8:00, my average pace for the run was 8:15 with a total time of 36:30. I felt pretty darn good again and I'm glad I was able to get out. It's amazing to me how when I have a bad day at work if I push myself out the door for a run it seems to make everything right. It doesn't solve the problem but it makes everything right at home, and that's what counts! That's why I love this sport and how when I have been injured in the past how tough it is to handle day to day problems with out it. I am so glad that I have the opportunity to run, I shall never take it for granted again.

See ya tomorrow.
