I had 1.20 MP. 8:43, .21 7:31. Lower body weights to finish up. I'm glad I didn't give up and kept at it...

Out to Payson Park via canal road. I was pretty sloppy and slow on the way out to the park but then on the way back my legs seemed to get into a better flow and loosened up nicely. My average pace was 9:04 with a total time of 1:05:05, I finished up with some upper body eights and some push-ups. MP miles were 8:48, 8:26, 8:28, .20 8:24.

See you tomorrow.

Summit down. Legs were were pretty trashed by the end but it was a good type of trashed. HAHA. My average pace was 9:07 with a total time of 1:05:02, I finished up with some lower body weights. I had to take the downhill super easy as it is steeper than Hell coming down Summit. I'll run this route a few more times and then graduate to the canyon.

See you tomorrow.

Out to Mini Gu and back on super stiff legs and buttocks... The downhill run on Tuesday just wercked me. I couldn't even walk yesterday but I was a little better this morning but the old pace was super slow. My average was 10:06 with a total time of 1:02:05 and then I finished up with some light lower body weights. Hopefully each day will get a little bit looser. Time to hit the Hot tub.

See you tomorrow.

Usual Saturday route and I felt pretty damn good really. Still not back to where I was pre covid but trnding that way I hope. My average pace was 9:08 with a total time of 2:18:08 all in all a pretty good week. I dropped in Mileage just a little but that was because of the downhill Training that wrecked me. 

 

See you Monday.

My average pace was 9:12 with a total time of 1:06:12, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.
