I sure hate having church at 1:00pm, I feel like I should get on the elliptical or do something, I can only read the scriptures for so long. Does that sound bad?

My toe that I broke a couple of weeks ago is really sore today and a little swollen... I don't think I really broke it but it was bruised pretty badly and now it is really sore. Hopefully it won't hinder me tomorrow when I run, I will probably ice to see if that will help!

Go New York Giants!!!!!!!!

Bring on the chips and dip, later of course!!!!

GIANTS RULE

ELI IS KING

 

I ran towards the Payson Park via Salem Canal Road, but the roads were so bad and it was snowing like crazy that I cut my run a little short. I got to my 3 mile mark and decided to turn back and head for home, it felt like I was running in quicksand the whole way and it was driving me nuts, I am so tired of the snow I am ready for some warm weather!!! The pace was extremely slow and by the time I was done my legs were feeling it bad, I just seemed to follow through and get it done so I am patting my self on the back for just finishing.

I then came home and shoveled all the snow on my walks and so I am counting that as cross training miles it took me about 45 minutes and my heart rate stayed above 115 so I am taking 3 miles for that... Total time for the 6 mile run was 59:06 My average pace was not even worth mentioning as the roads were so horrible it really hindered me so I am not even giving that, but I guess you can see it was not very good.

See you tomorrow.

I ran out to mini GU corner and up to the red brick house just shy of GU corner, took about a 60 second walk break and then headed for home... It was nice out this morning, the roads were clear and it felt pretty toasty for a change and I was surprised at how ell my legs felt especially after yesterdays run and my legs were feeling pretty wiped out! I started with a warm up mile and then I eased into a little tempo run with a progression for each mile starting with; 8:13(148), 7:31(154), and then slowing mack down with, 8:01(153), 8:29(153). Then speeding back up with 8:17(156 had a small hill in that one), 8:09(157). My average pace was 8:13 with a total time of 57:51 and my heart rate average was at 153...

I felt very good with this run, my quicker miles are starting to come back down into more respectable range, I am still not where I want to be, and also I am not where I was before I had my injury but I feel like I am on the right track!!! I hoping to do some hill training this week, not a lot just throw in some smaller hills and see how I do. If I do them it will probably be Thursday because tomorrow I will be doing a recovery run...

Sere ya tomorrow...

I still can't understand my leg strength especially when I felt so good after yesterdays run., and then when I ran today I felt like I had hit the wall from the get go! I had a pretty hard run yesterday but not enough to totally wipe me out to the point that I really had to persevere just to get through today's run, I just don't get it... I am hoping with the less miles and a very slow pace this morning that tomorrow I will be feeling much better than today, or at least I hope so. I did have some good tunes on the old IPod this morning that made the run more enjoyable, it also gave me a chance to think about life and the difficulties that I am facing, and trying to find some solutions for some of those difficulties, (I didn't find any solutions). But that's okay, tomorrows another day..

See you tomorrow.

Another difficult run in regards to my legs their strength is gone and it was a very hard just to get through the run. I don't think I am over training, at least I don't feel like I am and my tempo runs I only do once a week and there not all out tempo runs... I don't know what is up with me. I guess I will See how I do tomorrow and go from there.  My run on Saturday was an up beat run but my average pace was around 8:28 and then Tuesday I had a faster run and my average pace was 8:13, so I don't know if that did it or what.  Maybe my legs are just spent. I used the "stick" last night on my legs and it didn't seem to help, I was really running out of steam towards the end of my run this morning, I had to really concentrate.

Total time was; 54:52 and my average pace was at 9:05 heart rate was at 138. I hope my legs get to feeling better soon, I am thinking of entering the strider's half marathon in April so I need my Toe and my legs to get with the program.

Rest this morning. My toe has finally had enough, it was swelled up like a balloon and very very sore! I had my Brother-in Law take an ex-ray and its not broke just a real deep bruise that I keep aggravating, I might run a couple of miles later this afternoon depending on how I feel and if I can get the swelling to go down...

See ya then.

No running again today, my toe is still swelled and giving me some problems so I have taken another day off. I hope to be back to start the week, but we shall see... It was sure a nice day out there today, it would have been nice out there running and enjoying it. oh well there's always next week...
