I hade 3.91 MP miles 7:55, 7:51, 7:56, .31 7:57. I accidentally switched my watch of so I had two seperate runs on my watch. Not sure of my average pace. I finished up with some lower body weight training.

Harrys Hill so I could see how the ITBand will take some downhill, it was okay but I was pretty slow coming down as my legs just feel so tired and slow turnover... I got her done so thats something. My average pace was 9:02 with a total time of 57:48, I had one MP mile at 8:05, pretty pathedic on this course. I usually rock the downhill portion and the flat, but not today. I finished up with some upper body weight training ans some push-ups.

See you tomrrow.

Usual route but I felt a lot better than I did last week, ITBand was a little less hurtful at the first this morning which was a pleasant surprise. My pace towards the end was a little slower than I would like but my legs seemed to hold up a little better today. My average pace was 8:55 with a total time of 2:23:31, the last few miles were tough but I hung in there. I hope I am turning the corner on this darn thing.

See you Monday.

Payson Canyon with the Spanish Fork Group, I just eased my way down and tried not to over do it and I think I accomplished that for the most part. Average pace was at 8:17 with a total time of 1:31:09, I had 8 MP miles. I would like to get a few more of those in before ST Goerge, and Hopfully as I go they will get a little quicker.

See you tomorrow.

Very frustrating run again this morning, my poor legs just throbbed the whole way and my pace was so far off that it was pathedic. Maybe I'm still recovering from the Payson Canyon run last week, thats the only thing that I can think of at this point. Average pace was so slow at 9:21 with a total time of 44:03, not good.

See you tomorrow.

Nebo Half Marathon! I didn't really know what to epect with this race this morning so i took it maile by mile and just tried to saty in it as much as I can. I'll take a sub 1:40:00 Half Marathon and a 2nd Place age group medal any day.

1. 7:27 feeling pretty good.

2. 8:27 Damn Potty break! Cost me a good minute.

3. 7:08 To fast but still feeling pretty good.

4. 7:22 Better pace and feeling okay.

5. 7:30 trying not let things get out of control.

6. 7:13 Speed up here for some reason but still feeling good.

7. 7:22 staying on track and baling hay.

8. 7:28 Same as mile 7. Baling some hay.

9. 7:09 I was really pleased with this mile as it had some flat in it and I was getting a little tired.

10. 7:26 Starting the rollers, hard part of the course no doubt.

11. 7:32 Just hanging in there.

12. 7:20 Mostly flat here but I was trying to bale hay just to make sure I had my goal.

13.7:52 Slowed down because I new I had my goal. I shouldn't have because I would have had a sub 1:38:00. But thats okay. Baby steps.

.48 on my watch for some reason. 7:46.

I'm really happy with this. it was a good 2 minute course PR from last year and a Half Marathon PR form June at the American Fork Half. So pretty good. And I medaled up for and age group placement.

Steady Mobbin baby.

See you Monday.
