Started my trek to the SG Half in January and I ran the Payson Park loop but I didn't extend down to the park, I just tried to enjoy the run and not pay to much attention to the pace, I just need to train myself to cover the distance and then everything else will come. My average pace 9:03 with a total time of 56:29, I finished up with some push-ups and then some core work.

See ya tomorrow.

First morning run in tights, and it was the roughest run of my life and that's saying a lot! I don't know if it was the new tights that just wore my legs out or what but it was pretty much a death march the whole darn way! I ran out to mini Gu corner via canal road and usual I run this route in about 53 minutes or less, today it took me over 60 minutes to complete the run.... It took everything I had just to finish, these new tights that I bought were really tight on me and I don't know if they just wore my legs out because they are so tight, I have a different pair that are older and I will try them in the morning and see if that makes a difference.  Maybe I am just extremely out of shape, I have never run this slow in all my running years, the last 10 years I have had some tough runs but even then I can usually do a nine minute mile or less. I really Don't' know what to think but I will keep at and see how things go.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out to Mini GU this morning via canal road, I felt a little better this morning and my time was a lot better than the last time I ran last week. My average pace was 8:38 with a total time of 52:24, I can handle that no problem, I just need to stay consistent these next few weeks and hopefully I can get back on track.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work today and I ran out towards Payson on my 5 mile plus route, I felt okay and it was good to get out. I started at a little before 5pm and the sun was just going down, it made for a beautiful run. My pace wasn't real great but who cares I had a good time out there tonight, My average pace was right at 9:00 with a total time of 46:38. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 20 minutes, I didn't push the pace at all on the elliptical just used it as a nice cool down. After that I did my upper body weight training just a lite workout nothing fancy and then ended with some push-ups. It was a great work out and a great way to end the day.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards Mini GU after work but I just decided to go 5 miles as my legs were pretty beat from yesterday, legs were really tired and I didn't want to over do it and believe me I didn't. HAHA. My average pace was slow 9:22 and then my total time was 47:36, it was a nice evening and I'm glad that I was able to get out even though my legs were dead.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work today and I was able to get out just before 5 pm and I ran the Payson Park loop but ran the shorten version. I felt okay at times but towards the end of the run my legs were getting pretty tired, but that's okay I am still glad that I was able to get out. My average pace was 8:58 with a total time of 55:55, finished with some real lite stretching.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU corner via canal road, my legs were super tired on the way out but then I decided on the way back that I was going to take charge and try and beat the 9 minute guy. I averaged a 9:25 on the way out, not good I know... I tried to run the first part of each miles faster and then take a break in the middle and then finish strong the last of each mile, those went like this 8:43, 8:19, 8:32... I was happy that I didn't give in and just phone it in so to speak, my average pace 8:59 with a total time of 54:24, I wish those miles were in 7's instead of where they were at but I'm a work in progress and I need to just stay consistent and not give up. I feel good about this week. I would like to start getting 5 days in each week and I know I will get there, Just keep mobbin!

See ya Monday.

I finally have been able to get a run in this week! Work has been a little crazy but the rest of the week I am off so I should be able to run everyday...  I ran the Payson Park Loop but I cut out the rollers, this was the best run I have had in 6 months! Everything just flowed and I didn't feel like I was working real hard at times, on the 4th mile I had an 8 minute mile which I was amazed to see because I wasn't even trying to do that... Every mile was sub 8:30 which I haven't been able to do for a long while. I hope I am turning a corner so I can feel good about running again. I know there will be bumps in the road, there always is, but I want to start enjoying the journey again and I think this was a start in the right direction. My average pace was 8:24 with a total time of 52:24, its a great start to the week and for the day.

See ya tomorrow.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!! I ran out to Mini GU corner via canal road, I felt pretty good going out but then on the way back I started to have some stomach issues and I slowed down for the next couple of miles... I couldn't make it home so I found a secluded spot and took care of business, after that my legs felt better and I felt much better overall and the last mile was 8:22, so a good recovery. My average pace was 8:48 with a total time of 53:29, stretching afterward. My legs felt pretty good for the most part other than the little time that I was fighting my stomach, I'm getting excited about running again, I just want to stay healthy.

 

See ya tomorrow.

I thought things were getting better in my legs but when I got up yesterday and they were really tired and sore again, so I didn't run, they felt better today so I went out and after about mile or so i knew it was going to be bad... The last 2 miles I was averaging over a 10 minute mile and I almost walked the last mile but my heart wouldn't let me, I could not give up... I really thought I was getting past this but I guess I was wrong, my average pace was 9:39 with a total time of 58:36... I really don't know what to do, I will see how I feel Monday and then go from there. Maybe I will try and make sure I get enough water throughout the day, maybe its a hydration issue...
