I ran after work today and I headed out to Payson via canal road and then back to the house. I took it pretty easy on the way out and then I had a negative split on the way back... My average pace was 8:32 with my HR average at 145 my total time was skewed just  a bit as I accidentally hit the start button after my run and didn't know it, I hate that, but the best that I could figure was it was 52:06... After the run I jumped on the elliptical for an easy 10 minutes just to wind things down and then I finished up with some strength training on my upper body and then some push-up's. legs felt okay, but my darn calf's are sore with every run and its very frustrating and I don't know what is causing it! Any suggestions anybody?

See ya tomorrow.

No running today...  I was going to duck out of work early and run this afternoon but things got busy and I didn't make it out of there until after 5 and then by the time I got home it was 6:30 or so and I new that the window had passed.

See ya tomorrow.

I was able to pull my butt out of bed this morning and the temp was pretty nice at 18 degrees so pretty good. I ran out to mini GU corner and back to the house and I ran 4x800 meter repeats with a 800 recovery in between each repeat. I warmed up for about a mile or so and then started the intervals first was 6:57, 6:51, 6:59, 6:52 those were average pace, I'm not sure of the actual time for each one. The first one I had a side ache and at the beginning of the second one as well but then it went away after that and wasn't a factor, after the last interval I cooled down for 1.50 miles. I felt pretty good but I was tired toward the end of the last one, I was pushing it pretty good through each one so that was good. My average pace was 8:22 with My HR average at 148, total time was 54:23, after the run I jumped on the elliptical and ran 10 minutes hard and then 5 minutes easy for a total of 15 minutes. I finished up with my lower body weight training and then some push-ups. I need to next time program my watch for the half mile repeats just to see how fast I am with them, I just went by my best pace during the interval so It could be off a bit, my pace was pretty steady for each one though.

I have a sore back so I am taking today off as not to over do it. Its feeling better but I have Painters Half next week and I don't want any set backs. I am way under trained going in, but I need to be able to complete the race as it is one of my races for the runners series.

See ya tomorrow

I was able to get out just after 8:30 or so and I headed out to GU corner via canal road, the pace was pretty upbeat, at least for me it was at my current fitness level;) I had 2 8:16 miles in there and then I had 2 sub 8 minute miles after that 7:54, 7:58 and my average pace for the first 8 Miles was sub 8:20. I was able to talk to Michelle at GU corner and she seems to be running really strong right now. After my 2 mile loop down in the river-bottoms I headed back to GU corner and then I notice my Brother Curtis was making his way up to me so I waited for him. My calf's were really bothering me so I just cruised in with him and we kept the pace nice and easy, those miles were 9:26, 9:47, 9:37, 9:09, it was nice to run with him again its been a while. My back was pretty good today so the extra day off yesterday seemed to help it out, but my darn calf's are just giving me problems I don't know if I need new shoes or if its some other thing like I'm not getting hydrated enough, I can't seem to figure it out. Maybe I'll get some new shoes and see if that will help, I only have around 300 miles on the ones that I have so I just don't know. After the run I went to my son Ethan's basketball game and they did really well today and Ethan had a good game too. I have challenged  him to start running again and he is running 2 miles on the treadmill every day so that's good to see. My average pace for the whole run was 8:44 with My HR average at 146, total time was 1:45:14.

See ya Monday.
