I went skiing at sundance for 4 hours so I am counting that as a couple of miles of cross training. It worked my quads pretty darn good.

See ya Tomorrow.

No more excuses! I know I have been saying that for a while now but it changes starting today, not Tomorrow but it started today. I ran out past the stake center for 20 minutes and then it took me 21 minutes to come back the same way. My average pace was 9:28 with a total time of 21:39, I wanted to just run 40 minutes but I ended up going a little over that but that's okay. I finished up with some cross training on the bowflex. I did 3 sets of 20 reps of leg presses and 3 sets of 15 reps of calf raises.

See you tomorrow.

Day two of no excuses. I was pretty slow this morning but I don't care, this is about the long term and I know it will come back. I ran 40 minutes again today but this time I ran out towards Payson. My average pace was at 9:39 with a total time of 40:12, I finished up with some lite upper body weight training.

See ya tomorrow.

My goal this morning was to run for an hour or 6 miles which ever came first and I was surprised that I was able to run 6 miles under an hour considering how out of shape I seem to be. I ran out to Mini Gu Corner and then back to the house via canal road, average pace was 9:09 with a total time of 55:46...  Pretty good considering I haven't ran much at all since October., pretty decent week and my plan is to keep it going.

See Ya Monday.
