I could not sleep last night so I was laying there in bed and it was 5:50am and I decided to go out and run even though I didn't feel like it! I'm still fighting this cold pretty good and my heart rate should that, my heart rate never got below 150 and my average pace was 9:00. My foot felt okay starting out but then by the end I could start to feel it again, it was tolerable though... I don't know if I will run tomorrow or not I will have to see how I am doing, I certainly don't want to get sicker thats for sure, total time this morning was 36:07...

See ya tomorrow.

I have taken a turn for the worse with this darn cold, so no running again today, I have developed a cough to go along with the other stuff that goes with a cold! I think my body is saying that it needs some time off, with my foot the way that it is and everything else that is going on with my body maybe I will cave in finally! But then again I'm so stupid that I will continue to run, but not today at least!

See ya tomorrow

After taking my Tahoe over to Brent Brown to get worked on I decided to go out for a run, and I was slightly over dressed but I figured it would help me sweat the cold that I have been fighting right out of me! My goal was to run out to mini GU corner, since I havent been out that far for a while. I Started out feeling very sloppy and not in rhythm, after a mile I stopped and stretched and then I seemed to feel like I was in better rhythm, legs were tired though... My main goal was to just take it easy and enjoy the scenery, and for the most part I did that. My average pace  was 8:49 with my heart rate average at 152, still way to high which tells me I am still fighting this darn cold, total time was 53:13. My foot felt marginal but I could feel it towards the end of my run, I will see how it does throughout the day hopefully it won't be to bad!

I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day yesterday, all of our kids are scattered so it was just me and Cindie this year, but it was okay it was kind of nice having the time alone together, since we don't get it very often, to be alone that is;-D

See ya tomorrow.

Well, my foot did pretty good throughout the day yesterday and felt pretty good this morning but I think the shoe that I used in the marathon is what seems to be aggravating it. My Asic 2130, I don't know if all the rain and wet just ruined them or what but I could feel it from the get-go this morning. So I don't think I will use them anymore and then just see how it goes, my groin injury in the left hip came back to haunt me this morning, I thought I was done with that darn thing but it reared its ugly head this morning!!! It feels okay right now but I hope that it doesn't come back, thank goodness its Saturday so I have a day off to let it rest! I ran out to the base of Harry's Hill and then decided to run down Pretty Little hill, I took it really easy the whole run and my pace should that. My average pace was 9:16 with my heart rate average at 139, total time was 48:29 like I said slow and easy... I hope these darn aches and pains get to feeling better, I am tired of being injured!!!

All the kids come back tomorrow, so that should be alot of fun!

See ya Monday.
