I woke up this morning with a Migraine and it was having its way with me! I got all my gear on and headed out the door, I ran out towards Payson and the pace was very slow, my back was stiff and giving me problems and then there was the Migraine... I felt like I was seeing things it was so bad, very nauseated, but I kept on a pushing. Towards the end of my run I thought I saw Michelle and some blond freak walking, I couldn't tell if it was really them mainly cuz my eye sight isn't the best when its that dark and then there was the migraine, I didn't dare stop for fear that it may be a mountain lion and it would eat me, again the head thing was really freakin me out! 3 Miles running and then 35 minutes on the elliptical and then I finished up with some strength training on my upper half, I hope these headaches subside soon they have really been giving me some problems as of late.

See ya tomorrow.

20 Minutes Elliptical and the 3.25 miles on the treadmill in 31 minutes, I know really slow but right now its not about speed its about base mileage;-) I finished up with some strength training on my upper body, 2 sets of each exercise.

See ya tomorrow.

30 minutes on the elliptical and then 3.12 miles on the treadmill in 30 minutes. I then did my strength training on my lower body, 2 sets of each exercise, I'm starting to sound like a broken record... I might try and go outside tomorrow for my run or I might just do the elliptical and call it a day, I'll have to see how I feel. The headaches have seemed to subsided so that is a good thing, now if I could just get rid of the extra 10 pound that I'm hauling around I would be a happy camper. I still have some pain on my right side in the upper hip and groin area but it doesn't seem to bother when I am on the elliptical and it is barley noticeable on the treadmill so I will just go with it for now.

See ya tomorrow.

I went outside and ran 6 miles via canal road towards mini GU corner and then once I returned home to my house I went out to the old barn and then back for another couple miles... Total time for the run was 55:18, just a nice easy pace (9:11 average)... After that I headed downstairs for 40 minutes on the elliptical and then I finished up with some strength training on my upper body and then some push-ups. While running the insides of my thighs were still achy but it was tolerable and then on the elliptical they felt better, no pain at all... I took yesterday off so I had a pretty good workout today and it felt pretty good, I'd still like to be pain free some day, maybe that will come down the road.

See ya tomorrow.
