I ran my Payson loop this morning via canal road and I pretty much kept it easy, I did have some quicker miles mixed in there but nothing to really brag about. After I returned home and saw my kids off on the bus I ran out to the Stake Center and back to tack on an extra mile... My average pace was 8:40 total time was 56:18, HR average was 147, I do have some pain right on my hip bone I've never had anything bother me there before and once I got going I didn't feel it anymore, so kind of weird... I was a little bummed that Kenny Perry didn't win the masters, he played so good and with 2 holes to play the pressure just got to him, he really deserved to win, he played the best over the 4 days of the tournament... Golf is just a cruel game sometimes!

Thats about it today, see ya tomorrow.

I didn't get much sleep last night, it was a very difficult day and so 5 hours was wishful thinking but I will give myself that much even though it was more like 2 to 3 when you through in all the tossing and turning... I ran my pretty little hill route but this time I extended it up Harry's Hill, but only half way for now mainly because I was kind of running out of time and needed to get home to see my daughter Abby off on the bus, I just barely made. I had to pick-up the last mile to get there in time so I was averaging a 7:15 pace on that last mile, which is pretty fast for me! Average pace was 9:02 and my HR rate average was 147 and total time was 49:13...

See ya tomorrow.

I got up to run this morning and it was raining like crazy, so I opted for the treadmill... I was not happy about this choice and then to top it all off my Ipod wasn't charged so that made it even tougher, but I got r done! I ran 5x200 meter strides at a 7:30 pace and then just kept the pace nice and easy when not doing those, I was sweating like a pig! Average pace 8:45 and my HR was in the 150 range, total time was 46:00... I'm glad that its over, its so hard on the treadmill. I hope I don't have to do it tomorrow to, the weather is suppose to be pretty bad, I guess we will see.

See ya tomorrow.

It was a winter wonderland out there this morning, even though I'm sick of the weather it was pretty as heck!!! I don't know what it was today but my pace was up beat and felt really comfortable it was kind of fun for a change;-) My average pace was 8:29 with my HR at 153 and my total time was 51:37, my last mile was at an 8:00 pace so I seemed to get stronger as the run went on. I know thats not lightening speed but for an easy pace its pretty good for this old man, especially where I have been with all my injuries, so I hope I'm on the right path now and can get fit again.

Well thats it for today, I will see you tomorrow.

I forgot to save my entry and I just lost it, CRAPPPP! I just ran an easy 3miles and some change today I am planning on go longer tomorrow so I wanted to have an easy day just so the legs are fresh... My pace was up beat again with my average pace at 8:29 and my total time at 28:01 HR average was at 145. I want to run 13 or 14 miles tomorrow if I can handle it and if I can't then I won't, I have vowed not to over do it again! I can't believe it is the Boston Marathon on Monday, Crazy how time flies! I wish everyone who is running it a fun safe and successful trip;-)

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards GU corner until I ran into my brother Curtis and then I hooked up with him for most of the run... We headed out to Harry's and then up over the top and down past the Stake Center and then back towards Mini GU corner But I stopped about a half mile short and then headed for my house. My legs were pretty wasted today which is kind of surprising considering I went really easy yesterday, and the run was pretty laboring but I got her done! It was good running with my Brother again, we had some good conversation which made the miles fly by... My Garmin ran out of battery with about a mile to go so I don't have any info for ya, I know we were averaging just over a 9:00 minute mile which was just fine with me because of the dead leg issue and I think I finished in just under 2 hours, so just a nice easy long run;-) I think the reason my legs were dead was I had no liquid with me and all I had was GU so I was getting pretty thirsty by the time I finished up, time for some food!!!

See ya Monday.
