I ran the Payson Park Loop this morning but I didn't extend down into the park, I haven't ran in over a week so I decided to cut out the rollers. My legs felt okay but after 3 or 4 miles they started to feel it pretty good, but where I haven't run for over a week I think that is to be expected. My average pace was 8:36 with a total time of 53:31, I had a negative split on the way back. After the run I did some light upper body weight training, I Have  decided I need to get back to doing the weight lifting,  it has been good start to the week for a change.

See ya tomorrow.

Slept in a little bit this morning but I was able to get out the door by 8am, I ran out to Mini Gu and then back to the house all via canal road my legs felt heavy and tired but I got her done! Average pace was 8:37 with a total time of 52:20. Its just me and my wife today for thanksgiving so we are eating light and then heading to a movie, should be a great time! My Christmas display is already to go and I gave her a dry run last night, everything looked pretty good! I need to find a way to pipe in some music, then it would be a true winter wonderland! I purchased a few new things this year, its been a lot of work but it looks pretty darn good, the kids in our hood love it.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

See ya tomorrow.

I wasn't really feeling like running this morning but I knew that I had to be strong and get after it. I dropped Ethan off at cross country and then decided to head out. I ran out to Mini GU again via canal road, after a few miles my legs seemed to get into a pretty good rhythm and I had a sub 8 minute mile in the middle of the run. My average pace was 8:23 with a total time of 51:06, I'm glad that I was able to get out this morning. My goal for tomorrow is 10 plus miles, I hope my legs will let me do it.

Later.

I just lost my whole entry! I ran out past GU and then down into the river bottoms and then back to the house, I keep the pace steady but not to hard. Average pace was 8:28 with a total time of 1:25:27 the plan was at least for 10 miles and maybe more if my legs could handle it but they got a little wobbly towards the end so I stopped at just past 10 miles. I will continue to add a couple miles to my long runs each Saturday up until the SG Half in January, that should get me into pretty good shape for the race.

See ya Monday
