Ran 4 miles on the treadmill. Kids had a 2hr delay so I took advantage. Ran slow (9:13) for almost the whole mile and did 1 min strides each mile at an 8 pace with a total of 4. Felt good. It actually felt better to run the 8 pace then to run slower. Looks like my legs are coming back from my month off.

Well confirmed.....Broken Rib!!! Hurts like hell. Ran 3 miles this am before I knew it was broken. Started at a 9:40 pace for 1 mile, went to a 9:30, then a 9:22. The last 1/2 mile sped up to an 8:27 just to get done and the last 1/4 was a 7:30. It felt better to run faster. As soon as I stopped the pain set in again. We shall see how it goes. Leave it to me to break ribs!!!

Blizzard outside and snow over the kids heads. Did hill workout on the treadmill. 10 min warm up at an easy 9:40 pace then increased the speed to 6.5 9:13's and ran hills at 3, 5. and 7% until I had about a mile left was going to cool down but felt so good ran the first 1/2 at the same 9:13 pace then went to 8:34 for a 1/4 then 7:53 for the last 1/4. Avg pace 9:20's because of the warm up. I hate that!!! Oh well quality hill is what I wanted and thats what I got.

Ran 8 on the treadmill... It kills me to do more than 6 on the treadmill and then to have to do it slow and relaxed is hard to. Tried to just get into a groove and run but it was mentally tough today. Finished 8 in 1:17:34 stopped once @ 6 miles for 30 seconds (CJ was crying) then finished.

Ran 4 on the treadmill. Following a running schedule. Easy slow day....Started at 6.0 and went up every half mile till 6.3 and back down. Painfully slow, supposed to do 9:47's but averaged 9:45's. Tomorrow will be fast so I guess I should savor it.

Ran outside. Cold! 25 degrees. Ran linstead loop three times. A little faster than I would have liked for a "long run". Garmin hung around 9:28 per mile until I had 2-3 miles left then I picked up the pace. When finished Garmin said Avg 9:19. Finished in 1:23:51.
