I'm down in Queens Creek Arizona for the next few days with the family and it is just beautiful! Close to 80, it was 50 this morning when I went out and ran which is just perfect. I felt okay but not great, I haven't ran all week so I cant expect to much... My average pace was 8:30 with a total time of 51:24, I had one mile around 8:00 pace so I counted it as a MP mile. I'm trying to find my mojo again but I just don't know if I can or not, if I can't find it soon I might not run anymore races this year. 

See ya tomorrow.

Another beautiful morning run down here in good old Arizona, I felt a little better this morning, no aches and pains like Saturday just a nice steady run. I ran my regular route out on the trail and I was dodging rabbits along the way, it was kind a cool. My average pace was 8:32 with a total time of 1:00:39, now it's time to hit the hot tub for a little bit and then get some breakfast.

See ya tomorow.

This was probably my last run here in Arizona, we have to travel home tomorrow Because we will be up pretty early to get on the road, but we will see how it goes. I didn't feel as good today as yesterday, legs were a little tired and they had no get up and go but it was still a good run, it was way hotter today and its suppose to get up into the mid 90's today so it should be a warm one. My average pace was 8:34 with a total time of 52:17, overall it was a pretty good run my body is probably not use to running two days in a row! HAHA!

See ya tomorrow.

I was up at 7:30am and then I was out the door, the plan was to run 7 miles and just put the time in. I ran out past Mini GU and then up Power house road for a half mile and then turned for home. I ran into my Brother Curtis and we chatted for a minute. I felt okay at times and then not so great at times but it was a good run none the less and I was glad to get out. My average pace was 8:26 with a total time of 1:00:50, I had one sub 8 minute mile in the middle of the run so I am counting that as a MP mile. I have decided to try and formulate a plan that will get me motivated again, I have been lacking in that category for a while now and I need to get my butt going again. I just don't know what that is yet, maybe a race or something like that.

See ya Monday.

I ran the Payson Park loop today after work, I got out at 6pm and it was perfect weather for a run. I felt okay but tmile 6 was a pain and then I realized that I had had nothinbg to eat most of the day so I'm sure I was running on empty... My average pace was 8:22 with a total time of 59:58, aberage HR rate was 153,  pretty good time for this route as I am normally over 60 minutes or so. I need to remember to eat during the day so I am not so drained if I run in the afternoon that is. I had one mile just sub 8 minute so I counted that as MP

Morning run today and I have forgot how nice it is to run in the morning and it was great to get out. I ran out to Mini GU Corner via canal road, my legs felt heavy and non-responsive but as the run went on they seemed to loosen up a bit, average pace was 8:34 with a total time of 52:08. After the run I did my upper body strength training and then finished up with some push-ups, I just did a lite workout 1 set of each exercise, it was a good way to start the day.

See ya tomorrow.

Another morning run and I ran the Payson Park Loop and extended down to the Park, I felt pretty good from the start but then with about 1 and half to go I kinda seemed to get fatigued, but it was still a good run and I was glad that I got out. My average pace was 8:25 with a total time of 1:00:24, after the run I did my upper body weight training I just kept it lite with one set of each exercise, I finished up with some push-ups. Good run and what perfect weather this morning.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU but I wasn't feeling real great so on the way back I thought that I would only do 6 but I had scheduled for 8 miles and I felt like I needed to at least try. After mile 4 I started to feel a little better so when I got back to the house I extended out past the old Barn on canal road for a couple more, my last mile was at 7:47 so I am counting that as a MP mile. My average pace was 8:33 with a total time of 1:09:06, I had thought about  not running but now I'm glad I did, it was a good way to end the week.

See ya Monday.

I got home from work around 5:30 and I decided to go and get a run in so I ran the mail box route which is to run to the woodland hills mailboxes via Mount Loafer school and then back to the house. I extended down Woodland Hills drive to tack on another .20 and then I headed back home the same way I went out, lots of uphill and downhill, it pretty much killed me on the uphill my lungs just couldn't keep up with my legs. My average pace was 8:35 with a total time of 52:49, on the downhill I had a MP mile at 7:49... I finished up with some lite upper body weight training and some push-ups. it was a good workout and I'm glad I was able to get her done.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini Gu and towards GU but stopped halfway and then back to the house all via canal road. I felt a little off at the start but then better after I got loosened up but towards the end my legs were pretty trashed because of last nights hard workout, but pace was steady at 8:30 average with a total time of 1:01:30. I've had a pretty good week of training and I feel like I'm finding my groove again.

See ya tomorrow.

I waited for the rain to clear a bit and then I headed out to GU via Mini GU and then back to the house, weather was pretty good until the last couple of miles it started to rain again but it was tolerable. The last 3 miles I did some half mile pickups, nothing really hard just ran at a pace that made me  uncomfortable, took the first half of each one of those miles real easy. Average pace was 8:25 with a total time of 1:08:14, I felt good at times today and then not so good at times but I'm sure that is because of the increase in miles this week and finally having some consistency.

It was a great week for me.

See ya Monday

Morning run today and I ran the Payson Park Loop and extended down to the Park, my pace was a struggle at times but It felt good to be out and it was a beautiful morning. My average pace was 8:40 and my total time was 1:02:17, after the run I finished up with some lite upper body weight training and then some push-ups. I have made a commitment to start doing my Morning runs and make that my first priority of my day, no more excuses just get her done!

See ya tomorrow.
