I went skiing at sundance for 4 hours so I am counting that as a couple of miles of cross training. It worked my quads pretty darn good.

See ya Tomorrow.

No more excuses! I know I have been saying that for a while now but it changes starting today, not Tomorrow but it started today. I ran out past the stake center for 20 minutes and then it took me 21 minutes to come back the same way. My average pace was 9:28 with a total time of 21:39, I wanted to just run 40 minutes but I ended up going a little over that but that's okay. I finished up with some cross training on the bowflex. I did 3 sets of 20 reps of leg presses and 3 sets of 15 reps of calf raises.

See you tomorrow.

My average pace was at 9:39 with a total time of 40:12, I finished up with some lite upper body weight training.

See ya tomorrow.

My goal this morning was to run for an hour or 6 miles which ever came first and I was surprised that I was able to run 6 miles under an hour considering how out of shape I seem to be. I ran out to Mini Gu Corner and then back to the house via canal road, average pace was 9:09 with a total time of 55:46...  Pretty good considering I haven't ran much at all since October., pretty decent week and my plan is to keep it going.

See Ya Monday.

Late afternoon run out towards Payson on Canal road, I felt really crappy the first mile or so but better after that. I wanted to do a 40 minute run and that's what I did, my average pace was slow at 9:27 with a total time of 40:35.  I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups, it was a good start to the week.

See Ya tomorrow.

I wasn't able to get out this morning because of work so I tried to get out after work but it was blowing and raining so I opted for 40 minutes on the elliptical. It was a great work out and it was a good change of pace, after that I did some lower body weight training and some Crunches.

See Ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards Mini Gu Corner after work, I felt a little better tonight so I went a little further. My pace felt more rhythmic and I felt like I was in a pretty good flow. My average pace was 9:00 with a total time of 46:04, I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups. Its been a great week so far.

See Ya tomorrow.

I feel like I was robbed of my dignity today, I felt pretty crappy... But, at least I was able to get it done and not make any excuses which has been hard for me as of late. I just tried to keep as close to 40 minutes as possible, I went a little over. My average pace was way slow at 9:40 with a total time of 40:40, I finished up with some lower body weight trainng.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu Corner and then back to the house via canal road, I did not have a very good run this morning... First half was okay but then the wheels came off and it was a death march, but hey what do you expect for not running for 3 months. My average pace was 9:23 with a total time of 56:52, the plan is to go skiing a little bit later but we will see. I guess Provo Canyon is closed right now, it's been a good week of training and I'm really proud of myself.

See Ya Monday

I ran out towards Payson via canal road, I felt a little better today than I did on Saturday, my average pace was 9:00 with a total time 40:23... I'm still trying to stick with my goal of just running 40 Minutes a day unless I feel really good then I will extend, I just want to get my legs back underneath me before I start going a little longer. I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups.

See Ya Tomorrow.

I wasn't able to run yesterday because I had work in the morning and then after work was busy doing Valentine stuff so it just didn't happen, but I was able to get back at it today.  I ran the pretty little hill route via canal road and out past the stake center, my average pace was at 8:57 with a total time of 47:13, I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. Pretty good run considering the up hill and such.

See Ya Tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini Gu Corner via canal road this morning, legs felt pretty good considering how hard I skied yesterday, my average pace was 9:08 with a total time of 55:29. The last couple of weeks have been a little lazy but I will start getting after it again on Monday, I'm still struggling with motivation for some damn reason... I'm not sure why either. Maybe its age or maybe its just the simple fact that I am lazy,I'm not sure which it is but I will start working on it and see if I can brak threw it. I also did 2 set of  one legged squats, 15 reps in each set.

See ya Monday
