Went running this afternoon with no achilles prep, which I probably needed.  It was a blizzard at first, then warmed up a bit, then got freezing cold.  I ran out to the Cove and headed up the hill to where the kids were.  I ran into them half way up and they were heading down.  The first part of the run I felt tired and the claves and achilles were sore.  But on the way back, with a lot of downhill, I went 6:45, 6:36, 6:28, and 6:33 last 4 miles, which gave me a 7:24.  that is actually my best average back.  8:19, 8:05, 8:03, and 8:23 were the run up.  Mostly ran solo on  this one.   Glad to get it done.

Ran out to and up Cove Hill.  Progression until Cove Hill.  Sub 7:00s back 6:49, 6:42, 6:34, 6:31.  7:23 ave for the run.  Achilles was pretty tight today and the legs were tired.  A bit better than a similar run last week.  Never felt great the whole run, so i am happy I ran as good as I did.

Met at Tim's house and met Tim, Evan, and a couple others about 9.5 into their 20 miler.  I finished out the thrun around Day Break and down to the river bottoms at 12600 S.  I was running at the end with Evan. He hit 20 miles about 3/4 mile away from the cars.  I finished out the mile and ran 1 extra to hit 12.  This is my longest run since Boston.  7:22 ave

Rough start and cold this morning.  Went out for a long run and it didn't fee great, mostly because of the achilles, but also the fact I have ran back to back days.  Got it done though.   7:36 for the arounfd the Cove Pond and out to Main and back run.

Got up earl and still in a rush, headed to Manoa Falls later this early morning.  Ran on the canal and aroundAli Wai Golf course.  4 miles at 7:17 ave, no shirt and humid and dark.  Good run though.  Achilles was a bit more beat up today.  The last two runs it was fine after a mile, this took a bit longer.

Ran in and out of Laie this morning before heading to the beach and then PCC.  Achille was really bad today!  Usually a mile or so into it I will start feeling less pain and be able to move more normal.  It never got to that point in the whole 6 mile run.  Ran out of town to Kahuku on the trail and then to the Temple and over to BYU Hawaii.  7:40 ave
