3.430.000.000.004.107.53

After returning home from work I found some time to run and headed out towards Payson at a nice and easy pace. My hip was feeling really good for some reason but I resisted the urge to run further than planned, 3.43 miles in 30:11 with an average pace of 8:48 my HR average was at 151... The pace was feeling pretty easy but my HR was telling me something different, oh well it felt like a really good run. I then headed downstairs and jumped on the elliptical and did a 10 minute warm-up and the I did the Contenders course on the programed workouts, which was 20 minutes and then I cooled down with 12 minutes at a comfortable RPM for a total of 42 minutes. I then had to cook dinner for the kids, my wife is not feeling well, so I took care of that and then finished with some strength training on the upper body and then some push-ups. I also did some stretching after the elliptical and I also rolled my hip, I hope my hip feels this good tomorrow if it does I will be extra happy!!!;-)

See ya tomorrow.

I headed out after work again today, I ran out towards mini GU corner at an easy pace. 3.53 miles in 32:11 average pace was 9:07 and my HR average was 148, after the run I headed down to the good old elliptical for 10 minutes of warm up and then 20 minutes on the Contenders Course and then some stretching. My hip feels pretty good again today just a little niggle at the end of the run but feeling pretty darn good, I hope it continues to heal and get back to normal;-) I'm now off to see my younger brother who's in the hospital, he is really struggling.

 

See ya tomorrow.

I didn't get a chance to do my workout until latter tonight, I went light on the elliptical at an easy pace rpm was between 85 and 90. I listened to my music and watched 60 minutes of Nitro Circus it ended up being 62 minutes by the time I was done and then I finished up with some strength training on my upper body and some push-ups. My hip is coming around but I just wanted to give it a rest from running as not to over do it, I will try some more running tomorrow and see how it does. Hopefully I can get out of bed in the morning, its getting harder to get it in after work;-)

See you tomorrow.

I got off work and decided to get my run in so I headed out towards Payson and I decided to go a little further today and ended up going 4 miles in 36:08 with an average pace of 8:57 and my HR average was at 149... My legs felt really clunky and out of rythum but by the end of the run they started to come around, my hip did pretty good just a niggle of pain here and there but pretty good really. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for a 10 minute warm up and then did the contenders course again and really pushed the hilly parts, I felt pretty good about it. I then finished up with 13 more minutes on the elliptical and then did some strength training and some stretching and then lastly some push-ups to round out the day. I feel really good about today, I worked really hard and it feels good and I hope for a good day tomorrow.

See you tomorrow.

I was finally able to get a run in this morning after all the basketball games and baskeyball pictures and so on and so on.... I ran out to the base of Harry's Hill, out and back, my average pace was 9:03 with my HR average at 150 total time was 39:56. I felt pretty good I haven't had a lot to eat today so my energy level was just a tad low but I wanted to keep it as easy as I could for the entire run. After the run I did some stretching and then rolled my hip to finish up, it seems like my hip is on the mend at least as far as rolling it is concerned. It use to hurt like the dickens when I would roll it and now it hardly so I hope I am on the road to recovery. No elliptical today I have done enough of that for this week:-)

See you on Monday.
