I decided to stay inside today as it was raining like crazy and I wasn't in the mood to get wet, so I did 30 Minutes on the elliptical and then I ran for 30 minutes on the treadmill and I went 3.4 miles in 30 minutes. I had a couple 200 pickups at an 8 minute pace but other than that I kept it just under a 9 minute pace the whole way. I finished up with some push-ups and a little stretching, it was a great workout and I'm glad I was able to get it done.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu Corner and back to the house via canal road, my legs were pretty tired and not very zippy... On the way home a nice black lab started following me and ended up escorting me home, I was able to get a number from his tag and call the owner so they could come and pick him up. My pace was slow but I stopped for a minute and I forgot to turn off my watch so my pace and time were a little messed up, it had me at a 9:23 pace with a total time of 57:12. Most of my miles were sub 9:00 except for one so it was a little messed up. I have some pain on the back side of my leg were my knee bends, it loosened up after a little bit but I hope this doesn't become a problem, its pretty stiff and sore right now. I might need to ice for a bit...

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Payson Park loop today but I didn't extend down into the Park, I didn't feel real great on the way out but on the way back on mile number 4 I was able to get into a pretty good rhythm and that mile was 7:54. I then just tried to slow down and keep my rhythm and enjoy the run, my average pace was 8:51 with a total time of 55:10, I have had a pretty good week so far so i am happy with that.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work today and ran out to Mini Gu and I felt pretty good again on the second half of the run, my average pace was 8:41 with a total time of 52:45.  I ran with a pretty heavy heart as I lost a good friend over night and it's been a pretty sad day... He was a great doctor and a great friend and he delivered both my kids, I remember what a comfort it was to have him as our doctor and will never forget all the great times golfing and hanging, they will be cherished memories for sure. Rest in Peace Jae Baxter and may all your drives be straight and true from here on out.

See ya Tomorrow.

I ran out Past Mini Gu and then out to Gu Corner and I felt really good today for some reason, I had a 7:48 mile on mile number 5 and then my average pace was 8:28... I haven't beat the 8:30 guy for a while now and I didn't feel like I was working real hard at it either, so it was a great way to end the week. My goal is to add a mile each week to my long runs until I get to 11 or 12 miles and then just hold there for a while, I really want to pace myself and not over train and get injured again. Total time was 1:08:22.

See ya Monday.
