I ran the Payson park loop today after work, my legs were still feeling it from Saturday's long run but after a few miles they started to feel better. My average pace was 8:32 with my HR average at 146, total time was 1:01:02. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 10 minutes no resistance and then I finished up with some strength training on the upper body and some push-ups. I felt pretty good considering the tired legs, hopefully I can get in a morning run tomorrow.

 

See ya then.

I ran out to Payson park again this morning and  was feeling pretty good so I did a little progression run so here are the splits; 8:36(146), 8:23(146), 8:15(153) some up hill in that one, 7:52(153), 7:54(157) this mile had some rollers in it, 8:07(157), 8:25(155), .16 7:40(156) total time was 58:47 with an average pace of 8:12, HR average was at 152... I am very pleased with this run, anytime I can run this route under 60 minutes I'm pleased but when I run it under 59 minutes its like eating a cosmic cupcake. After the run I jumped on the elliptical for 15 minutes at a moderate to hard pace and then I finished up with my standard upper body workout and some push-ups. I was a little lazy yesterday and didn't get out but after this mornings run I feel pretty good and on another good note I got my results back from the Doctor and everything was negative so that is a good thing, now I can stop worrying;) I might go and have that cosmic cupcake to celebrate!

See ya tomorrow.

I didn't get out this morning and then after work I was splitting hairs over my Daughter's Drill team tryout I had to go and support her, so needles to say nothing for running today;( But I'm very excited for Abby she made the team and I'm very proud of her!!! She was so excited;-) Sometimes there are more important things than running.

Later.

I ran the woodland hills mailbox route but I ran it in the oppisite direction from last week, this week I went up Harry's Hill first and then up to the mailboxes and then back to Loafer canyon road and then home. My legs were really strong going up Harry's and then up to the mailboxes no tightness at all, my pace wasn't all out but it was up beat and I felt like I had more in the tank if I wanted it, I was breathing pretty hard though;) On the downhill portion my legs were feeling it but after I got back on Canal road they seemed to recover. My average pace was 8:05 with my HR average at 156, total time was 57:55, after Harrys hill my splits went like this; 7:47 some up hill, 8:01 more uphill, 7:30 all downhill, 7:29 half downhill and then half on flat... I didn't really push it hard on the downhill I just let gravity do its thing, I feel pretty dang good about this;) I finished up with 20 minutes on the elliptical at a Moderate to hard pace and then I did my upper body weight training and then some push-ups. I feel really good about today since I didn't get out yesterday, now here is to hoping that the storm coming in will hold off until later tomorrow.

 

See ya then.

I woke up late this morning and didn't get out until after 8 o'clock, but I ran out to GU corner and then back to the house and then I tacked on a couple more miles out to the old barn and then back to the house. My legs were pretty trashed from yesterday's hard late afternoon run but it was still good to get out and I just hung in there the best I could;) Average pace was easy at 8:40 and total time was 1:27:41, after the run I jumped on the elliptical for an easy 20 minutes just to work out the kinks and then I did some stretching. Well, that's about for today. I'll see ya on Monday.

 

Later.
