I've recently gotten married. It's one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Since then I've slacked off on my running, hopefully this running blog will help encourage me to keep pushing.

This morning consisted of 4 miles on the treadmill at the Y. Again I did it at 7min pace. I also did some light upper body training to help me keep my form.


Back to the Y for some more treadmill running. I usally run at the Y this time of year because its dark when ever i get a chance to run, plus i don't like the cold.

Mile 1 = 7:00 pace

Mile 2 = 6:30 pace

Mile 3 = 7:00 pace

Mile 4 = 6:30 pace

Then the steam room. Ahhh. I'm getting a little sore and fatigued. I want to do some speed workouts, maybe ill get some in this weekend.

Benji, 7 minute pace might be a little fast for runs that are supposed to be easy. If your goal now is to build up mileage you should think about doing your easy runs at 7:30 to 8 minute pace.

Keep up the good work, this Blog has been fun for me and encouraged me...!

Rob, I will defiantly slow down on my easy runs. I'm planning to do another long easy run Saturday morning.

I Just Run, Thanks. Reading and learning more about running from other runners blogs is very encouraging for me. This blog is like the "eye in the sky". I feel guilty when I don't do a good run now, because everyone sees it.
