I ran the same route today as yesterday, I felt awful this morning too... I have picked up a bug of some kind since coming down to Arizona, I can't tell if its just allergies or something else but it was a low energy run for sure. My average pace was way slow at 9:18 with a total time of 30:09, I had a hard time getting through it but I made it. I'm not sure if I will run tomorrow or not. I will have to see how I'm feeling.

See you tomorrow.

I didn't run on Thursday as I was feeling pretty crappy and then yesterday we spent the whole day driving back from Arizona, I slept in trying to get some rest this morning but then I decide I needed to get out and do something. So, I ran out to Mini Gu and back via canal road and then back to the house, I felt dizzy and just not real great but my pace was pretty darn good so I can't explain that. My average pace was 8:27 with a total time of 51:41, I had a couple of miles in the 8:06, and 8:09 range so kind of strange but a pleasant surprise.

See Ya Monday.

I ran towards Payson Park but cut out the rollers via canal road, I felt a little sluggish at first but then the last 3 miles were a lot better and I was able to get into a pretty good flow. My average pace was 8:39 with a total time of 53:50, I finished up with some upper body weight training.  I feel like I'm on the verge of breaking through this wall that has been holding me back, I just need to keep pushing.

See Ya tomorrow.

A nice morning run out to Harry's Hill and then over to Woodland Hills drive back down to Canal road and then home, I felt pretty decent running up Harry's Hill and then pretty good on the downhill portion as well. I had 2 MP miles during the run, both on the downhill, 7:59, 7:30 and my average pace was 8:39 with a total time of 55:15, I am pretty happy with this whole run, not my fastest on this route but very respectable. I seem to be trending in the right direction.

See Ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu and then back to the house all via canal road, I felt pretty decent considering the harder work out yesterday and I really tried to stay with the pace and keep it respectable. My average pace was 8:46 with a total time of 53:43, my last mile was sub 8:20 so that was pretty nice for a training pace and my legs were at there most tired then too so not bad.

See ya tomorrow.

I finished up with some upper body weight training to finish out the workout, I will go for 10 plus miles tomorrow. Its been a pretty good week so far.

I did my usual run down into the river bottoms and then back to the house via canal road, it was a little nippy this morning which made for great temperature to run in. I felt okay at times and then not so great at times but all in all it was a good run, my average pace was 8:49 with a total time of 1:29:06. Its been a great week for me. I haven't run over 30 miles in a week in a long time so that is a good thing. I just need to let it continue to snowball and continue to get after it. I ran into my Brother Curtis on my way back, it was good to catch up with him even if it was just for minute.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Payson Park loop this afternoon but I didn't extend down to the park, my breathing was all out of whack on the way out but then on the way back it seemed to settle down some so that was good. My average pace was 8:26 with a total time of 52:36, I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups. I'm glad I got out today. I almost said to heck with it.

See ya tomorrow.

Morning run out to Mini GU corner and then back to the house all via canal road, I tried to take it easy but not to easy. I was surprised at how well I recovered from the late workout last night and to still have some juice in the old legs was a pleasant surprise. My average pace was 8:35 with a total time of 52:35, things are starting to come back together, I just need to stay consistent.

See ya tomorrow.
