I finally felt like I could run again so i ran out past the Stake Center and then out past the T in the road and then back to the house, leg felt pretty good but I'll have to see how it feels tomorrow. On mile 3 I picked up the pace a little and I was able to do  an 8:08 mile, still slow but I know that a runner is still in there some where, so that gives me hope for the future if I can get healthy and consistent.... My average pace was 8:41 with a total time of 35:24, I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups.

See ya tomorrow. ( Hopefully)

I ran out past the old barn on Canal road towards Payson and then back the same way to the house. I didn't take any Ibuprofen this morning because I wanted to see where the pain level is without it, my leg felt pretty good, not a 100% but tolerable. The bad news is my legs were so dead this morning by mile 4 I had slowed down to a crawl and it was a major death march, I know that this is because I'm out of shape and it will just take time but man I was really hurting. I feel like I had ran a marathon and this was my first run back after the race, it was brutal. But it was good to get a run in and I am glad that I was able to go at all, I probably would have been better served to just run a couple of miles rather than the total 4 miles... Oh well...

See ya tomorrow. (Hopefully)

I ran out past the stake center this morning, my leg felt pretty darn good and my legs kinda woke up a little bit, not way woke up but a lot better than the last few times I've run. Miles 2 and 3 were more like my old training pace, 8:20, 8:16 and it seemed pretty fluid but then the last mile I pulled back a little because I didn't want to over do it. I would like to run 6 to 8 miles tomorrow but that will all depend on how I'm feeling and it will have to be a much slower pace than today. After the run I finished up with some light upper body weight training and then some push-ups. My average pace was 8:40 with a total time of 35:22, I hope I am finally turning the corner on this injury and I hope I can stay consistent and get back to where I was before this crap all started.

See ya tomorrow.

So my goal this morning was to run at least out to Mini GU corner, I have ran this route many a time with ease but today was pretty rough... I am glad that I was able to run it, but I have really lost some fitness. I ran into Pat Loss and I guess his running days are over, his hip has no cartilage left so he told me the doctor said no more impact... So said and he is a great runner and I wish him the best. My average pace was slow at 9:13 with a total time of 55:52. It sucks to get old.
