I ran out to Mini Gu Corner via canal road, I ran into my Brother Curtis and ran with him for a while, it was good to run with him again. My stupid 920XT was malfunctioning again so my miile splits were all over the place. I will not use that watch again until they tell me they can work out the bugs, to frustrating.  My total time was 54:45 with an average pace of 8:33, I felt pretty good for the most part and it was such a beautiful day for February.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Payson Park loop today and extended down to the Park, another beautiful day but my legs were pretty much dead from the get go and the last couple of miles were like a death march... I didn't hardly eat anything today and it really showed, my average pace was 8:59 with a total time of 1:04:34. I'm still glad that I got out today, I just can't let this warm afternoons slide by.

See ya tomorrow.

I took a couple of hours off this afternoon as I had a late appointment with a client at 5pm so I came home and got my run done early, I started out just after 2:30 or so and I ran out to Mini Gu Corner. When I first started out I thought it was going to be another death march but I ended up feeling pretty good, my average pace was 8:25 with a total time of 51:16. I had a MP mile on mile number 3 at 8:00 pace, I knew that was to fast so I tried to slow it down to more like an 8:30 pace, but my last mile was 8:16 so I must have accidentally speed up. It was sure a nice day 65 plus, pretty crazy but I'm not going to complain.

 

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Big Blue mailbox route after work today, I didn't want a whole lot and my goal was to keep it pretty easy and not over do it. My average pace was 8:52 with a total time of 46:19, I felt okay for the most part I just wanted to keep the legs loose an I didn't want to go 2 days in a week without any running.

See ya tomorrow.

I was able to get out the door just after 8:30 am and I headed out to Gu Corner via canal road and then I came back the same way, I felt okay but it seems I'm fighting side aches for some reason... Today it hit me on mile 4 and then I fought it the rest of the way, it would just come and go so I don't know what's up with that. When I returned back to the house I ran out to the old barn on canal road and then back to the house to finish out the 10 plus miles. My average pace was 8:38 with a total time of 1:27:21, not a bad run but with that darn side ache I had to slow down a lot but I guess that's okay. I had a pretty good week of training again and I like the road I'm on, now if I can just stay healthy.

See Ya Tomorrow.

I ran the Payson park loop but I didn't extend down to the park, I felt pretty good today even though the insides of my thighs were really stiff from the yard work on Saturday, I was able to keep a steady up beat pace and just enjoy the evening. My average pace was 8:28 with a total time of 52:49, I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups. Good start to the week.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu Corner via canal road passed my Brother and then I turned to try and catch him and during that mile I did a 7:49 mile so I'm counting that as a MP mile, thanks brother for pulling me along. Stopped for a bit and talked to him and then I headed back to the house and just kept it easy, it was a little bit cooler today and I could feel it in my hands, but it was still nice for February. My average pace was 8:20 with a total time of 51:58.  I feel really good right now, I sure hope I can stay this way through out the year, it would be a first.

See ya tomorrow.

My average pace was 8:30 with a total time of 1:00:56, it was another beautiful day and I'm glad I got out, feeling good right now.

I ran out to Mini Gu Corner and then back to the house, pace was tough today and I pretty much felt like crap the whole time, I did feel slightly better on the way back. My average pace was 8:57 with a total time of 54:23, I'm heading down to St George with Ethan tomorrow for a soccer tournament. I will probably run tomorrow morning and then I don't think I'll run the rest of the week as he will be having a couple of games a day and I want to focus on him.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Payson Park loop this morning via canal road, I felt a little choppy on the way out but then I felt pretty smooth on the way back and even had a couple 8 minute miles in the middle. My average pace was 8:37 with a total time of 1:01:53, I finished up with some light upper body weight training and then some push-ups. I felt pretty good again today.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the big Blue Mailbox route today, basically I ran out towards Payson to this big blue mailbox and then I head back past the stake center via canal road so it keeps me on the flat and I can just take it easy. My average pace was upbeat steady at 8:22 with a total time of 55:32, I felt good for the most part but my mind kept wondering about certain things in life that I have no control over... Like High school sports and all the damn politics that go with it, I will be glad when my 2 juniors are graduated and I don't have to deal with idiot coaches.

See ya tomorrow.

Today was a tough one, I was tired from the get go and I just didn't have it mentally. I did fell better about half way up Harry's Hill and then coming down Woodland Hills Drive but when I hit the flat and then canal road and it was a death march that last mile or so. I had a couple of MP miles in the middle on the downhill, well not quite MP but close enough. (8:10) (8:12) My average pace was 8:52 with a total time of 56:29, so it was a good hill workout but other than that it was just down right brutal, but I guess there will be days like these. I just need to enjoy the journey, and I am.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out Past Mini Gu and then up to Gu Corner and then back to the house the same way all via canal road. After getting back to the house I tacked on a few more out past the old barn via canal road, I felt pretty good at times and then a little tired at times but I felt stronger at the end than at the start so thats a pretty good feeling.  My average pace was 8:28 with a total time of 1:25:41, mile 5 was a MP mile at 7:56 with a little downhill help, I didn't really push it at all so that was a good feeling as well. Its been another good week of training and I like the road I'm on.

See you Monday.

I ran the Payson Park loop and extended down to the park, I then realized that this was suppose to be a cut back week but I most have forgot. I just tried to keep easy and not try and push anything today, my average pace was 8:46 with a total time of 1:02:55. I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups, a pretty good start to the week. I will cut back a little bit this week just to be safe.

See ya tomorrow.

Morning run out towards Gu Corner via mini Gu and then back to the house the same way, the horses wanted to run this morning so I let them out just for a couple miles. I had 2 MP pace miles in the middle, 7:53, 7:52, my average pace was 8:23 with a total time of 1:00:24. It was my first morning run on week day for a while and it felt really good, this is going to be the plan as I sometimes just have to many things going on after work, which was the case yesterday.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU but the wind was blowing so damn hard that I turned and headed back towards the house, after getting back to the house it was a little less wind so I tacked on a couple more but that was about it for today. The wind kind of zapped me mentally but it was a cut back week so no big deal. My average pace was 8:35 with a total time of 1:10:22, I will plan to up my miles just a little bit next week and try and get back to it.

See ya Monday.
