I ran after work today and I headed out towards Payson Park but cut out the rollers, on the way out during mile 2 I ran 3 strides and then on the way back during mile 5 I ran 3 more... The first 3 were in the 7 minute range and the last three topped out at 6:55, according to my Garmin, my average pace was 8:33 with my total time at 53:12. After the run I did my upper body weight training and then some push-ups. My leg was marginal to okay and seemed to loosen up as I got further along, I rolled it pretty good after the run with the big foam roller. A good start to the week.

See ya tomorrow.

A nice cold morning run today! It seemed colder than normal this morning, or maybe I'm just turning into a baby... My leg gave me problems through about mile three and then it seemed pretty good after that, the med's must have kicked in HaHA!My pace was slow and easy cuz my legs in general were pretty tired, it must have been the short turn around in workouts and my old body doesn't like that! My average pace was 8:57 with my total time at 54:37, like I said way slow. My step-son Mason emailed me yesterday and informed me that he was robbed last week on his mission, his Mom doesn't know and will never know,  he was pretty comical about it all and he is alright, he only had a couple of dollars on him, Suckers! His words not mine, HaHa! He is learning a lot and has had another baptism so I am very proud of his success and courage., what a kid! It makes me pray extra hard for him knowing that he got robbed, I knew it was going to happen I just didn't think it would be with in the first Month;) He said its almost like he felt like one of the guys cuz he had finally been robbed, it was pretty funny hearing him tell about it, crazy!

 

See ya tomorrow.

I ran on the elliptical after work and I ran 6.26 miles in 60 minutes, I have a Sole E-35 and it keeps track of the mileage which is kind of nice. After that I finished up with some light upper body weight training and some push-ups, I also rolled my leg with the big foam roller. Hopefully my leg will feel good enough to run outside tomorrow morning, I will have to see if not then I'll have another date with the good old elliptical!

See ya tomorrow.

After work run this afternoon, I ran out to mini GU and then extended up a half a mile or so up Powerhouse road and then I headed back to the house. My leg was marginal and seemed to do better as the run went on, but my legs had no go in them today and towards the end it was pretty much a death march, I really hate that! My average pace was 8:28 with my total time at 1:00:52, it was a beautiful day and I was able to run in shorts which is always a plus this time of year. Light day tomorrow, either a short easy run or a short session on the elliptical.

Later.

I ran out to my 5 mile mark in the riverbottoms, which is out past GU Corner and then I headed back to the house after that I felt okay so I ran out to the old barn on canal road and then back to the house. I was trying to catch my brother through the middle of the run and had some sub 8 minute miles but I couldn't catch him but thankfully he stopped so I could catch him! My average pace was 8:28 with my total time at 1:42:59 it has been a good week of running, not much training going on but I am able to log the miles. The St. George half in a week will mostly be a nice training run with some tempo miles mixed in.

See ya next week.
