My clients that I was suppose to see this morning decided to see me tomorrow so I slept in and went out just after 9:30am and I ran out towards Payson Park but cut out the rollers. My pace was nice and steady at 8:35 with my total time at 53:19 and my HR average was 147, I decided to wear that darn thing today for a change.  My leg was a little stiff at first but then after a few miles it loosened up and was okay, so that is a good sign. No strength training today, to much to do... Now its off to take down my Christmas display and put it away for another year, man that went fast!!!

See ya tomorrow.

I had a horrible run this morning, I just had nothing in the tank and it was a death march from the start! I ran out to Mini Gu and then back to the house and then decided to punish myself a little more and so I tacked on another mile just so I felt like I actually accomplished something... My average pace was slow at 8:45 with my total time at 1:02:23, I forgot my HR monitor so I have nothing on that. After the run I did my upper body weight training and then some push-ups to finish out the morning. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day and I'll have more gusto!

Later.

I ran out to Mini GU again and my leg was a bit of a bother on the way out but it seemed to loosen up on the way back to the house, average pace was real easy at 8:50 total time was 53:30. After the run I did some stretching and then some lower body weight training and then I was feeling like I needed some more so I did 2 miles on the elliptical to finish things up. When I returned to the house I felt like I could have run more but decided to stop so I was glad that I did the elliptical to get a little extra, no pain with my leg while on the elliptical.

See ya tomorrow

I usually take Friday's off but I didn't run on Tuesday so I decided to do some cross-training instead, so I did 6.23 miles on the elliptical in 60 minutes and I was a sweatin fool!!! After the elliptical I did my upper body weight training and then some push-ups to finish up. No pain in my leg and I think it is all stemming from my back with a pinched nerve, I will try and go long tomorrow before Ethan's Basketball game at 8am so I will have to be up early! So fun!

Later.

Well I was out the door by 5:30am and it was just starting to snow and by the time I got out to GU Corner it was an all out blizzard! I headed back to the house and I was hoping that it would stop but it didn't and to top it all off I didn't wear my water proof jacket so my clothing was getting pretty heavy so I kind of wimped out and called it good after 10 miles... My leg seemed a little better this morning it was still a bother but it was less of a bother today, my average pace was real slow with the slick roads at 8:50 and total time was 1:29:04. I just had time to get in the shower and get Ethan to his Basketball game so a pretty good morning and I'm glad to be done!

Its Ethan's Birthday today, he's the big 14! Happy Birthday Ethan!

See ya Monday.
