I am down in Arizona and the weather is so nice!!! Mid 80's and then cool in Mornings, just amazing. I ran a couple of miles with the gang and then I went out for 4 more miles with Ethan, he was way out front and he really pulled me along. My average pace was 8:29 with a total time of  51:44. We  will be down here until late Wednesday night and then Ethan and I will be flying home that day, he has JV soccer that he has to be back for otherwise we would be staying the whole week.

See you tomorrow.

Still hanging in AZ but Ethan and I are flying home later tonight along with my brother-in-law Joel, I ran the same loop as yesterday the first round was with Joel and we average about an 9:10 mile then I dropped him off and I went for a second loop and average a 8:15 mile for that. My average pace for the whole run was 8:39 with a total time of 1:01:49, I felt pretty good on the second loop my lungs really like the lower elevation:)

See ya tomorrow.

Me and my son Ethan returned home from AZ late last night (1:00am) so I ran after work today, I was able to get out around 5pm and I headed out to Mini GU.  I didn't feel real great, not as good as I felt down in AZ that is, its hard to come back to the higher elevation. My average pace was 8:32 with a total time of 52:01, I hope next week to get back in the habit of morning runs and strength training I have let that go as of late...

See ya tomorrow.

Morning run today I just wanted to run a little to keep the legs active. I ran out past the old Barn via canal road, average pace was 8:26 with a total time of 27:49 I seem to be getting my groove back a little and my goal has been to make sure I'm running every day and just enjoy the journey.

See you tomorrow.

The plan today was to drop Ethan off at Soccer practice at 7am and then come home and run, but I came home and laid down for a minute and then the next thing I knew it was 9:00! I hopped out of bed and then headed out the door... I ran out past GU corner and then down into the river bottoms until I hit my 5 mile mark and then I headed back to the house all via canal road. My legs were really feeling it from the get go, I just didn't feel real great. I wanted to finish with my average pace being sub 8:40 and I knew I would be running on tired legs but I told my self I could do it. My average pace on the way out was slow at 8:50 so I knew I had my work cut out for me. On the way back I just tried to work on my form and stay steady, I wanted to really  pick my pace up on the last of each mile and so I did, with the last 2 being 8:00 and 7:57. My legs were tired but I showed myself that I can keep the pace quicker even on tired legs so mission accomplished! My average pace was 8:34 and my total time was 1:26:22, I'm proud of myself  for the way I finished. I could have just taken it easy and said to heck with it and got the miles done and called it a day, but I didn't.

See ya Monday
