Out to Payson Park and back. I felt just slow and tired as usual. Not sure why I am not getting faster and stronger... Maybe this is what being old is all about... HAHa. My average pace was 9:11 with a total time of 1:06:03, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

Out past Mini Gu and back to the house. I felt pretty good once I got back to the house so I tacked on another mile. I started out a little rough but then I steadly improved each mile and felt stronger as the run went on, more fluid. My average pace was 9:15 with a total time of 1:06:10, I finished up with some lower body weights.

Happy 4th!

See you tomorrow.

Towards Payson Park but I stopped short as my old legs were so tired and slow that it seemed counter productive to do any more. Frustrating! But I got her done inspite of the difficulty. My average pace was super slow at 10:20 with a total time of 1:04:30, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups. Hopefully tomorrow will be better and more normal.

See you tomorrow.

I felt pretty good at the start and then through about 10 or so miles and then I started to fade some... I stuck with it for about as long as I could with the heat of the day. My average pace was 9:26 with a total time of 2:32:33. I struggled with Motivation and getting out this week. Hopefully I can refocus and be better next week.

See you Monday.

But then on the way back my legs loosened up and I felt a little better and added a little when I got back to the house. My average pace was 9:44 with a total time of 1:10:19, I finished up with some upper body weights and some pushups.

See you tomorrow.
