Between my back and the fact that I have been sick the last few days I wasn't real motivated about getting out this morning and then to top it all off it snowed again last night! I guess we need it though:) I ran the Payson park loop but I didn't extend down into the park, the roads were tolerable but slick in some places. My average pace was way slow at 9:01 and my total time was 56:15,  my back was really bothering me today my turn over was slow and then I just had no energy from my cold that I have had the last few days. But I was glad that I got out and with the SG half in just 20 days I thought I had better start running again:)

See ya tomorrow.

I went out just after 11am this morning it was the last day to sleep in so I made it last! I ran out to Mini GU via canal road and just tried to enjoy the day, my back is still giving me some fitts but I just try to concentrate on form and go with it. My average pace wasn't real good but okay at 8:51 with a total time of 53:40. I'm glad I was able to get in two days in a row, thats a record for me as of late.

See ya tomorrow.

Was not feeling good today again with my cold so I took it easy. The bad air and cold temps didn't help either.

I had to be up early to see a client and was hoping for a run later in the day but work intruded and I just didn't have time today. I did purchase a new treadmill though and I hoping to try it out tomorrow morning.

Later.

I ran in the afternoon today after work and I tried out my new Sole F80 treadmill and it worked darn good, really smooth. My total time was 53:15 with an average pace of 8:40, I did some quarter mile pick-ups ranging from a 7:40 Pace to a 7:50 pace, I'm still feeling a little drained from the cold that I have been fighting the last week or so but pretty good other than that. Just adjusting to the treadmill and not being outside is tough but while its cold I will have to train myself to be mentally tough with it, I am not running in all the gunk outside and the temps are way to cold for me. They have to be in the 20's for me to even consider running outside, it looks like it might be a week or so until it starts to warm up a titch! I'm ready for spring already!

Later.

I hit the treadmill for 6.35 in 56 minutes and then I hopped on the elliptical for another 2 miles. I'm pooped! My average pace was pretty slow at 8:49, I had some quarter mile pick-ups in the middle of the run, 4, they were in the 7:35 to 8:00 range. I'm sick of the cold temps!It hasn't been breaking 10 degrees for a high here in Salem, its been the coldest stretch that I can ever remember.

See ya Monday
