So early yesterday morning I had to head up to Tremonton to see a client and I was walking out in one of his fields and there were a lot of high weeds and I didn't realize I was walking along a ditch bank , to make a long story short my right leg found the 4 foot deep ditch and my left leg stayed were it was at... Pretty sore knee but it felt okay out running this evening so that's good, If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all, HAHAHA. So I didn't run yesterday just out of pre-caution, I ran out past the stake center and towards Mini GU and then back to the house, I felt pretty good I just feel fat and out of shape. Average pace was 8:53 with a total time of 38:10, I finished up with some core work.

See ya tomorrow.

My average pace was 8:39 with a total time of 37:35, it was a beautiful night and I'm glad I decided to run, it was a great way to end the day.

I ran after work and I ran out past the stake center and towards Mini GU and then back to the house, I felt pretty sluggish the first couple of miles but a little better towards the end, my average pace was 8:55 with a total time of 38:08. It was good to get another run in and I am glad that I went out again, I need to make a commitment to get up in the morning and get it done. It just makes the day go better and then I don't have to try and find time after work.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past mini GU corner and then back to the house all via canal road, after a 2 mile warm up I tried to pick up the pace on the last of every mile until the last mile and then I just cruised in. My pace on those quarter mile pick ups were in the 7:20 range, my average pace 8:40 with a total time of 52:36, I was a little tired towards the end of the run but it was nice to try and wake my legs up a little.

See ya Monday,

I ran out towards Payson and extended up the hill into Payson all via canal road, I didn't feel real great but I was able to keep my average pace under 9 minutes but it was a chore... My average pace was 8:57 with a total time of 46:14, I did some upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups I also worked on my a core a little bit. Well, Ethan is finished with XC. He ran Varsity at region and ran a 17:10 but he got bumped out of the top 7 on the team for state so he is done racing for this year. he will continue to run with the team then go to California and run a race with the team and then he will start getting ready for soccer in the spring. He had another tough year in XC just can't seem to break through and get under 17 minutes, oh well I guess he'll have to try for next year. I sure am proud of him for his hard work and dedication, good job.

I was finally able to get in another run this week, I have been pretty darn lazy and disappointed in myself but I was able to get out this morning and what a nice morning it was! I ran out to Mini GU Corner via canal road and after I got warmed up I tried to finish the end of each mile fast and I seemed to do pretty good. I didn't feel real great at times but I was able to get it done, I just don't feel loose at all very tight and uncomfortable every where. My average pace was pretty respectable, at least for me, at 8:34 with a total time of 52:07... Me and my wife are heading to Hawaii tomorrow for our 10 year anniversary and I will run while I'm there.

See ya Monday.

My first run in Hawaii. What a beautiful place! Just ran along the beach and enjoyed the morning. Average pace was pretty upbeat at 8:18, you've gotta love running at sea level, total time was 26:13. I will try and go a little farther tomorrow, slept in a little trying to catch up with the time change.

See ya tomorrow.

Finally home from Hawaii and I finally got another run in. I ran in Hawaii a couple days but then I feel into the Island laziness:) I ran out to Mini Gu and then back to the house, I felt okay but still really tired from not sleeping for 35 hours on the trip home. We didn't fly out until 9:40 pm Sunday and then I didn't sleep at all through the flight and then I was toast yesterday, still feel like I'm in a fog, it was a great trip no doubt. Average pace was 8:47 with a total time of 53:30, I'm really going to try and get back at it, no more excuses.

See ya tomorrow.

Morning run out towards the Payson Park but Is topped a little short and cut out the rollers, I felt good on the way out but on the way back I got pretty darn tired, the last mile or so was pretty much a death march. My average pace was 9:03 with a total time of 56:24, I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups. It was a pretty good workout but my legs are pretty dead, I just have to stay consistent and hopefully my body will cooperate. It was sure cool this morning, trying to get use to that as well.

See ya tomorrow.

Afternoon run today and I ran out to Mini GU and then back to the house via canal road road, felt pretty good for the most part I tried to pick it up on the middle miles and I was able to do some sub 8:30 miles, which is pretty good for me since my injury. Average pace 8:43 with a total time of 52:58, I finished up with a couple of sets of one legged squats, 15 reps in each. feeling good about my week so far, I will probably have a lighter day tomorrow like 3 to 4 miles but I'll have to see how I feel. If I feel good then I will go the full 6, if not then I won't.

See ya tomorrow.
