I went virtual running today, out to Payson park via the treadmill I did not want to fight the rain and snow! Its always hard to run on the treadmill it always seems to be harder and take longer. I ran 6x200 meter pickups 4 at a 7:40 pace and then 2 at 7:30 pace. I ran a 200  meter rest in between each pick-up. I ran 7.15 in 62 minutes and the first 2.5 miles I had a 3% incline and I didn't know it, maybe thats why I was tired towards the end. After the run I did my upper body weight strength training and then some push-ups. I was a sweating machine too, average pace was 8:40 but it sure seemed like it was a hard pace!

See ya Tomorrow

I left work early today and headed out to Mini GU corner and I tried to keep the pace nice and easy, but my mile 3 was a little fast for a recovery run ( 8:06) slowed her down after that and kept more around 8:30 mile. After that I went with my son Ethan for about a half of a mile with him and Zac and then I let them go and headed back to the house to add another mile, but that mile ended up being 7:53 way to fast but I felt good so I'll just live with it. I decided to put a watch on Ethan today just to see where he's at and see what pace he is averaging... They averaged a 6:40 pace for 3.38 miles, pretty dang good! I asked him if he was working hard and he said it felt pretty comfortable, I wish I could do that.... On mile 2 the garmin said they did a 5:06 mile but I think that is a little off, but all the rest were right on so I don't know. I'll time him again tomorrow and see what it says and so if that is true or not. My average pace was 8:16 with my HR average at 150 and my total time was 58:56, after the run I did my lower body workout and called it a day.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran in the afternoon again today and what a beautiful day outside! I ran out towards Payson and just tried to take it easy, the pace was tough for some reason and I feel like I have shin splints, but I was able to get through it. Average pace was 8:40 and the total time was 44:20 HR average was around 143. No time for strength training as my Stepson Mason had a soccer game and so we had to get going. I hope these shin splints don't become a bother, I'll have to keep an eye on them.

See ya tomorrow.

It was such a beautiful day today I just had to leave work a hair earlier than I should have to get some hill work in, I ran up to the mailboxes via mount Loafer school and then down the good old Harry's Hill and then back home via canal road. I kept the pace easy on the way and then extra easy on the way down, my shins seemed to be alright I used my Cho-Pat supports and they seemed to work, pain was minimal... My average pace for the run was 8:35, with my HR average at 147, total time was 1:01:22. It wasn't my fastest time on this course but not my slowest either, just kind of in the middle which is good.  After the run I did my lower body strength training and then some push-up, so a pretty good workout. Now its off to another soccer game I hope they do as well as they did yesterday, they played great! go Salem Hills Skyhawks!!!

 Later.

I was out the door before 7:30am and I headed out towards GU corner and then down into the riverbottoms, I ran my 2 mile loop down in there and then I headed back to the house. After returning home I headed out to the old barn and back which is 2 miles round trip for a total of 14.10. My legs felt great and I think I could have kept going for a while longer but decided to stop on a high note. My one shin was a little of a bother but after I got going it felt fine and wasn't really a factor, I'll see what the day brings with that hopfully it was just a blip... My average pace 8:22 with my total time at 1:58:05 my last 2 miles where pretty strong (8:12) and (8:06) it felt like I was running down hill and it wasn't laboring at all, my breathing was well in control. I'm really happy with the run today. Average HR rate was 147, a great day for me the pace felt easy and comfortable.

See ya Monday.
