A nice evening run today, I slept through my alarm and had some things to do after work so I ran after that.  I ran the Payson loop via canal road, pace was a little up beat but towards the end I slowed her down and just cruised in. Average pace was 8:43 and my HR average was 146, total time 54:20 after the run I finished up with some strength training on my upper body and some push ups, time for a shower;-) No elliptical today I just don't have the time...

See ya tomorrow.

I didn't feel real good today so I just went small. I just am not feeling the inspiration the last week or so, I need to kick myself in the butt, I'm having a hard time getting out of bed in the morning and then it takes everything I have just to get out the door in the afternoon. I'll keep at it though and just do my best... Average pace was 8:57 and my HR average was 142, total time was 39:40. No elliptical again as I have run out of time, see ya tomorrow.

Another glorious afternoon run today, and it was beautiful!!! I did a 2 mile warm up and then the goal was to do a 2 mile tempo and test the waters for speed, I headed out towards mini GU corner and here are my splits; 6:56(160), 7:13(161). The second mile I was trying to get it closer to a 7:30 pace but I was still a little fast, the first mile I was almost red lining, but my heart rate didn't show that I had a lot of heavy breathing though. I did take a 60 second walk between each one, so at this point I really don't know what my max HR is because both paces the HR was the same even though the second one I wasn't trying as hard, so I don't know... After the tempo I took it easy on the way home, 2 miles, average pace was 8:10 with my HR average at 150, total time was 49:24. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 25 minutes with 20 minutes of that being at a moderate to hard pace, finished with some strength training on my upper body and some push-ups.

 

See ya tomorrow,

I was able to get out in the morning for a change and it was a little brisk! I ran out to Payson and back via Canal Road, kept the pace easy on the way out but on the way back I wasn't paying attention and I speed up up on the middle miles, but on the last mile I slowed her down. The middle miles were 8:16 and 8:29, average pace was 8:43 and HR average was at 149, total time was 53:20. No elliptical today, just trying to keep it easy for today. Tomorrow I don't plan doing more than 10 miles and I plan on keeping it easy too, but I will see how that goes...

 

See ya tomorrow.

I woke up at 6am and got my son Ethan off to a scout pow wow, and then I headed out towards Osborns and my goal today was to do at least 8 miles and and no more than 10 miles. I felt okay going out to GU corner (Osborns) and then on my way back I started to pick up the pace without even knowing. Starting with muile 5 my splits went like this; 8:23, 8:27, 8:16, 8:11, 8:03, and then finished up with a 8:16 to round out the 10. The good thing about today was I seemed to get stronger as the run went on, I know I wasn't really at MP but I think it was a pretty good tinman tempo for the last 5 and I felt I could have gone a little bit more but I needed less miles this week as I went pretty long last week. My average pace was 8:29 with my HR average at 146, total time was 1:25:49. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 20 minutes at a moderate pace, RPM at 90 and then I finished up with some strength training on my upper body and then some push-ups. I'm pretty happy with the effort and I think I am on the right track;-) I did see my brother Curtis out today but I was pressed for time and so I didn't get a chance to run with him, but he was looking strong!

 

This is my 5 day of no Cherry Pepsi's and I've had no headaches at all, my plan is to cut my intake in half and see if it makes a difference in loosing a few pounds;-)

 

See ya tomorrow.
