I finally have been able to get a run in this week! Work has been a little crazy but the rest of the week I am off so I should be able to run everyday...  I ran the Payson Park Loop but I cut out the rollers, this was the best run I have had in 6 months! Everything just flowed and I didn't feel like I was working real hard at times, on the 4th mile I had an 8 minute mile which I was amazed to see because I wasn't even trying to do that... Every mile was sub 8:30 which I haven't been able to do for a long while. I hope I am turning a corner so I can feel good about running again. I know there will be bumps in the road, there always is, but I want to start enjoying the journey again and I think this was a start in the right direction. My average pace was 8:24 with a total time of 52:24, its a great start to the week and for the day.

See ya tomorrow.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!! I ran out to Mini GU corner via canal road, I felt pretty good going out but then on the way back I started to have some stomach issues and I slowed down for the next couple of miles... I couldn't make it home so I found a secluded spot and took care of business, after that my legs felt better and I felt much better overall and the last mile was 8:22, so a good recovery. My average pace was 8:48 with a total time of 53:29, stretching afterward. My legs felt pretty good for the most part other than the little time that I was fighting my stomach, I'm getting excited about running again, I just want to stay healthy.

 

See ya tomorrow.

I thought things were getting better in my legs but when I got up yesterday and they were really tired and sore again, so I didn't run, they felt better today so I went out and after about mile or so i knew it was going to be bad... The last 2 miles I was averaging over a 10 minute mile and I almost walked the last mile but my heart wouldn't let me, I could not give up... I really thought I was getting past this but I guess I was wrong, my average pace was 9:39 with a total time of 58:36... I really don't know what to do, I will see how I feel Monday and then go from there. Maybe I will try and make sure I get enough water throughout the day, maybe its a hydration issue...
