I really had a rough run this morning, from dealing with the VPB every other mile to just having no energy from being sick the last few weeks it was pretty tough. My average pace was way slow at 8:59 with a total time of 1:30:51, I hope I am back to full strength by next saturday.

See you Monday

Payson Park Loop but I cut out the rollers, Pace was good and steady but my legs were a little weak at times. My average pace was 8:21 with a total time of 52:06, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups. It was a good run but I jusdt want my strength back from a couple of weeks ago berfore I got this darn cold.

I felt okay through the first half but then the wheels came off, I just didn't have the energy and the last few weeks of dealing with my cough and cold just took its toll. It was a great race though Honoring my dad and my brother-in-law who both died from cancer in the last few years, its a great race for a good cause.

See uou Monday.
