I ran out to Payson Park out and back. Legs felt really clunky today so I took it pretty easy again. I think they are still wiped out from Saturday's long run they just feel dead... I want to get in a real legitimate tempo run this week, maybe Wednesday or Thursday depending on how I feel. My average pace was 8:56 with my heart rate average at 136 total time was 1:03:48 not much else to say except I hope I have a little more bounce and spring to my stride tomorrow, but we shall see.

See ya tomorrow.

I decided to do a little tempo run this morning, my legs were feeling pretty good so I started with a 2 mile warm-up at an 8:37 pace and then eased into my tempo run. The first mile was a surprising 6:57(154) and my heart rate seemed to still have some give in it. After that I did a recovery mile, 8:33(143), I just wanted to see if my leg was okay I still worry about that so I wanted to be sure...  I then eased into another tempo mile and that one was slightly slower but more like my marathon pace, or should I say my true marathon pace, 7:11(157). I seemed to be laboring just a bit more on that last mile although it was slightly up hill at the end, but my legs were getting tired anyway,  I then did a two mile cool down to finish off the run... My goal after this run is to work up to a 3 mile tempo run with no recovery in between, I am pleased with this run but I have a lot of work to do but I feel I am on the right track. My main goal right now is to stay healthy, improve my speed, or at least get my speed back and then get some hills in. My average pace was 8:13 with my heart rate average at 146, total time was 57:53

I also did the standard crunches and push-ups using the rubber ball and alternating between sets of each...

See Ya Tomorrow.

Not much to say about today's run other than My legs were gone from yesterdays tempo run, and I mean they were really gone!!! I felt like I was back in High School trying to break a 9:30 mile and let me tell ya it didn't happen! My heart rate never got above 130 very very sloooooooooooow....

Oh well, no pain no gain. Hopefully tomorrow I will have my legs back.

See ya then.

I ran out to the old BYU farm, out and back my legs felt a lot better this morning so I did my regular 7 mile loop. My average pace for that loop was 8:36 with my heart rate at 141 total time was 1:00:40... After seeing my daughter of to the bus I decided to head out to the old Barn on Canal Road for a few more, I kept it a nice easy pace just trying to cool down and that was an average pace of 8:55, total time was 18:06. My average heart rate was 138, legs felt pretty good through both runs and so I was happy with that, I hope that tomorrow I will be able to do another recovery run to get ready for Saturdays long run. My goal for next week will be to have a reduced mileage week as this is my 4th week in row of higher mileage, at least for me its higher mileage...

Last night I had the opportunity to go with the youth in our ward to the temple to do Baptisms for the dead, it was a lot of fun mainly because I was able to go with my daughter Abby and dunk her a few times, it was a great experience... She's a great kid and I am very blessed to have her in my life, she keeps me on my toes!

See ya tomorrow.

I couldn't get my but out of bed this morning so I had to wait until I got home from work so I could get a few miles in. I hope I'm not to dead for tomorrows long run, I guess we'll see! I kept the pace pretty steady and up beat, my average pace was 8:20 with my total time was 46:13 I forgot my heart rate unit so I don't have any numbers on that... I ran out towards Payson, out and back and then went down to my son Ethan's friends house to check on him and then I headed for home. It was nice I ran in shorts and it was pretty mild, I've got to go so I can get ready for my daughter Abby's Choir concert.

 

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards GU corner and then down into the riverbottoms once I was down in there I did my two mile loop and then headed  back to GU corner... My legs did pretty well until I had about 3 miles left and then I just hit the wall and I felt like I was walking, it was brutal! After I got back to GU corner I did another  mile loop back to GU corner and then stole some Gatorade from the Spanish Fork boys & girls and then started to make my way back home. My wife Cindie came out to check on me just to make sure I was still alive and she brought me some more Gatorade which was welcomed, after a brief hello and goodbye I tried to finish up and I did. My average pace was 8:53 with my heart rate average at 140 total time was 2:04:33 not real fast but I Got-R-Done... Passed all the Spanish Fork dudes and dudette's planned it just right again so I didn't get Chicked, so that was a plus! Next week will be a reduced mileage week, probably 10 to 15 percent, but I will have to see how I am doing before I make up my mind, it might be closer to 20% after the way I'm feeling right now!

See ya Monday.
