I ran after work today, I headed out towards Payson park but stopped about a half mile short as I'm still not feeling like I can extend all the way to the park, I'm just not there yet. My calfs were still giving me problems today, they feel good when I start but then they get sore and I still can't seem to figure out why, I feel like I'm hydrated pretty good today but who knows! My average pace was 8:25 with my HR average at 150 with my total time at 52:19. After then run I jumped on the elliptical for 15 minutes at a moderate pace and then I finished up with some strength training on my upper body and then some push-ups.

All in all a good start to the week.

See ya tomorrow.

Early morning run today, I was able to get out the door just after 6 am and it was a little nippy but not to bad. I headed out to mini GU corner and I tried to keep the pace easy for the most part,  my average pace was 8:50 with my HR average at 138, total time was 58:02, after the run I jumped on the elliptical for 15 minutes at an easy pace I then finished up with my lower body weight training. My legs were a little tired this morning and I seemed to have the same calf issues but not as bad today, but other than that I felt pretty good.

See ya tomorrow.

Nothing today as my cold is kicking me in the butt again, I decided with as cold as it is outside it would be counter productiive at this point so I'll see how things go tomorrow.

Later.

I ran after work even though I am not feeling good, I decided to run up to the mailboxes and just see how I do. My goal was to keep the pace easy going up and coming down and I was pleasantly surprised that the pace wasn't half bad, atleast for being sick and my whole body feeling like rubber! This is a pretty steep climb so I was able to beat the 9:15 guy by alot and then my average pace for the whole run was 8:32 with my total time at 56:19 and my average HR rate was 150. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 20 minutes at a moderate pace and then I finished up with my lower body weight training and then some push-ups. I felt okay while running but as soon as I would stop I would start hacking like no tomorrow! Morning run tomorrow as I haved a lot going on in the afternoon.

Later.

I woke up at 10am and decided I felt good enough to run so I headed out the door, my goal was to head out towards GU corner and then see how I feel. Along the way I ran into some friends first, Kelli the running prego women and running better than ever and then I ran into Kent Wing and we were able to catch up everyone is so supportive in the running community!!! I just wanted to bascially beat the 8:30 guy for the whole run today and I think I was able to do that. Average pace was 8:27 with my HR average at 147 total time was 1:25:02, I felt pretty good for the most part but towards the end I was really starting to feel it and I couldn't tell if it was cold that I have been fighting the last week or the fact that I had no GU for the whole run, I fogot to bring some, the last mile was pretty tough! I finished up with some 20 Minutes on the elliptical at an easy pace and then my upper body weight trainng, I"m pretty tired... 

See Ya Monday.
