AM- My legs were pretty trashed still from Saturday, so I took it pretty easy this morning! I started to have some stomach issues about 2 miles into the run and needless to say a VPB was in the making! After holding on for as long as I could and cutting my run short, I jumped the road and took care of business, felt better afterward;-D Extended the run out towards the stake center to get in my 5plus miles for the morning and then headed back for the house. I hate these kind of runs, I just made a joke! Anyway, I got her down and thats about all I can say about that... total time was 49:06 and my average pace was 9:26, heart rate was at 136, like I said very easy pace this morning. The pain in my right groin seemed to do alright, I was hoping it wasn't the same injury that I had on the left side that kept me out for about 2 months, I mean I could feel it but it didn't really bother me. I think I will take it easy as not to aggravate it so it becomes worse. I might start running a couple of miles on the treadmill at night just to get in a couple of more miles each day, I don't think I will do it every day, maybe a couple a days a week, but the pace will be very slow.

See later.

I had a hard time getting out of bed this morning, but after I got up and put all my gear on I was able to get out! My hip was a little noticeable when I started out but then as the run went on it seemed to be alright, I kept the pace really slow and easy and I will continue to see how it does if it looks like it is getting worse then I will need to take a break so it can heal... I don't want to be out of commission for 2 months like I was back in June and July, and where this is on the other hip I feel like I need to be careful. I ran out towards mini GU corner but stopped short about a half a mile, average pace was 9:10 total time was 47:06 my heart rate was at 140. Oh, I almost forgot I saw a shooting star this morning, I think thats a total of 8 or maybe 9 now for the winter months. It was pretty cool with the bright moon I was surprised that I was able to see it!

I finished up with some core training and and some push-ups.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran my Payson route via Salem canal road, kept the pace real easy as not to aggravate the groin and hip area. It felt the same as yesterday so it isn't getting any worse so that is a good sign, I think if I take it easy I should be able to keep running, I hope! My average pace was 9:04 with my heart rate at 138 total time was 47:14, I finished up with some upper body weight training and some push-ups... Well thats about it, not much else to say so we will see you tomorrow.

Later.

I hit the treadmill after I got home from work, I slept in this morning so I had to run after work. Ya, I know I'm lazy! Oh well, at least I got it done! My groin was a little sorer than it has been so I don't know how I will do tomorrow, it was tolerable once I got going but then when I finished it started to get sore. My foot is feeling better but now I have this darn thing, I just want to scream! Oh well, such is life... Total time was 52:21 average pace was around 9:30, so real slow, average heart rate was 136. I want to get in better shape but just when I start to feel like I can start to push it then I get another injury, it sucks! I've only pushed the pace a couple of times in the last few months so I don't think I am over doing it, I don't know what to think... I am going to hit the showers and call it a day! I am going Pheasant hunting tomorrow with my brother Ron and his son Jake and my son Ethan it should be a fun time. I don't know if I will have time to run tomorrow or not I will have to see how the day goes.

See ya tomorrow

I had no time to run this morning for the simple reason that I was up at 5:30 to get ready to go pheasant hunting so it just didn't happen! We had a great time hunting there was fun had by all...I ran on the treadmill when I got home but my groin & hip were really bothering me so all I could handle was 4 miles and it was done at a very very slow pace. At this point I'm not sure if I will be able to run tomorrow or not, I will have to see how it goes in the morning but I'm not to optimistic;-( I might have to take a week off and see if I can get it back to healthy status, I don't know.

See ya tomorrow.

No running today as my upper right quad and hip area are really sore so I am taking the weekend off to see if it will heal up! This is very disappointing. My PF has just healed up and I was ready to get going but now I have to deal with this, I'm totally bummed out! I tried the elliptical, but it seemed to aggravate it even more so than the running, so that is a no go as well... I will see how it is on Monday and then decide from there, but I might take a whole week off if it isn't getting any better. Like I said, I am really bummed out!

See ya Monday.
