I ran in the afternoon today and it was a really nice day, the air was a little gross but it was still a good day. I ran out the Payson Park loop today and extended down into the park via canal road, this was the first day in a long time that I ran and nothing really hurt, I was really stunned by the whole thing and it made me realize why I love running so much! Its days like these that make me feel so good inside and make me want to run even more, I hope this continues. On miles 3, 4 and 5 I did a little progression and they went like this: 8:14 (some up hill), 7:51 (half up and half down), 7:32 (half flat and .25 up and then the same down). The last two miles I just kind of cruised and enjoyed the the last few miles, my average pace was 8:11 with a total time of 58:52. I finished up with upper body weight training and some push-ups, I hope I have more days like this a head! It was a great run!

See ya tomorrow.

I didn't have work this morning so I got up at my leasure and then headed out, it was a beautiful morning but the haze was out but its still all good. I ran out past Mini GU and then back to the house via canal road, felt pretty good and just enjoyed the run, my average pace was 8:27 with a total time of 51:38. I finished up with some lower body weight training, it was another good run and I am glad that I was able to get out again.

See ya tomorrow, and HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!!!

I started out this morning towards Payson for a couple of miles but then I started having stomach issues so I decided to try and make it back home, but I didn't! After finding a suitable area for my VPB and taking care of business I headed home to take another pit stop. After that I headed out past the Stake Center to finish up, it was a pretty brutal run as far as my stomach was concerned:( My average pace was just steady at 8:35 with a total time of 1:00:32, my legs were pretty tired towards the end and I was glad to be done!

See ya tomorrow.

I got home from work and headed out, it was a beautiful day and I was able to run in shorts which great to say in the month of January. the plan was to run Harrys Hill and then drop down over on to Woodland Hills drive and then down to canal road and then home. I didn't feel real great going up Harry's but I was able to get her done, and then I just let the downhill of woodland hills carry me. On the downhill portion I had a 7:49 mile but I was just trying to keep it easy, I didn't want to push to hard today and I think I accomplished that for the most part. My average pace was 8:35 with a total time of 54:48, the air was pretty bad again today I really felt it going up Harry's but less on the downhill and flat portions. I've been really steady this week with my training and I am glad.

 

See ya tomorrow.

Fridays are usually a day off or a small run, so today I went with a nice easy small run, I ran out past the old barn on canal road towards Payson. I ran have the mileage that I usually do during the week, so just over 3 miles, my average pace was 8:37 with a total time of 28:23...  I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups, it was a nice little run and I just couldn't pass up the nice day, I ran in shorts again.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past GU Corner down into the river bottoms and then back to the house via canal road, roads at the start were pretty slick but better on the way home. My legs were pretty dead from the get go but I knew that would probably be with the increased mileage this week but I was able to get her done and it was a great week of training, at least for me anyway. My average pace was slow at 8:58 with a total time of 1:30:24, I would like to be able to do this every week through the winter just over 40 miles but I will have to see how that goes.

See ya Monday
