I ran out towards Payson this morning via canal road and man was I over dressed it was really warm, like shorts warm. I started out slow and kept the pace that way until mile three when I picked it up just a little bit and then on mile 4 I went for a MP mile just to wake up my legs! I eased into it and then by the middle of it I was at a 7:30 pace, I ended up doing a 7:55 mile I haven't been under an 8 minute mile for a long time, it felt good, just a little twitch in my hip so thats good. My average pace was 8:48 with my heart rate at 152, total time was 40:52 the real tell, tell sign will be how I feel tomorrow;-)  I then finished up with some upper body weight training, all in all a pretty good day.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran in shorts this morning! Man did it feel nice, its suppose to cool down though towards the end of the week, oh well today was nice. I ran out towards Mini GU corner but stopped about a mile and a half short, the pace today was very, very easy average pace was 9:28 with my heart rate at 140, total time was 43:01...  The old hip was alittle sore but it seemed to do all right once I got going, and it stayed about the same through the whole run. I did some core training to finish up and did some light training on my legs, low weight with high reps, it seemed to help loosen my hip up, it also seems to help it when I run up hill too which is kind of weird...

See ya tomorrow.

I did my Payson loop this morning and I actually extended the run up the hill into Payson, I was feeling pretty good so I splurged! Kept the pace easy for the most part, 8:54, I had 1 mile where I dipped down into the 8:30 range, nothing spectacular. Total time was 45:55 and my HR was at 146, my hip felt okay but I did start to feel it towards the end but it was okay... I should say that its not my hip its my groin and upper thigh whats been giving me the problems, my wife tells me I need to be more specific;-)  I 'm hoping to be healthy by the end of the month, of course I have been saying that for about 8 to 9 months now, cautiously optimistic lets say...

See ya tomorrow.

I woke up to 4 inches of snow so I stayed in bed, I might run later today after work if I have time, otherwise I might just bag it for today!

I will see how the rest of the day goes and get back to you;-)

Later.

I ran out towards Pretty little hill but I did the easy way starting from the base of Harry's Hill, so pretty much down hill, and then something strange happened the Rocky's theme started playing on my Ipod and for the life of me I can't remember ever putting that song on my Ipod! There is no way that I can run slow during that song so I started to pick up the pace and it felt good, in fact when it was over I pushed replay and listened to it a again! I did an 8:15 mile for the first one and then I ran a 7:57 for the second one, not lightning speed but it was fun to wake my legs up just a little bit;-) My legs seemed to handle it pretty good which was a welcome sign, so it was a good day and I hope my groin continues on the road that its on, please, please, please.

Average pace was 8:42 and my HR average was 147, total time 46:00, I would like to do a longer run tomorrow but I will have to see how the weather is going to be and then go from there.

See ya tomorrow.

My goal today was to run a 10K at a moderate pace to simulate next weeks race so I headed out towards Mini GU corner and the pace was up beat but not fast I had 2 miles that were in the 8:15 range. I then turned and headed to Pretty Little hill and did the up hill route and made my way back towards mini GU corner until I hit 6.2 miles and then stopped. I averaged a 8:29 pace for the 10K and I found myself holding back mainly because I wanted to get in a double digit run today... My average pace was 8:40 with my total time being 1:34:40, my HR average was at 146. My groin felt really good today, I hardly even noticed it so I hope I am getting close to being healthy, knock on wood! I was hoping to run into my brother but I must have just missed him, maybe he had to work this morning, although I didn't get out until after 6:30 so maybe he went early.

Time for a nice warm shower and some breakfast;-)

See ya Monday.
