Well I regestered for the St George Marathon this mourning and I hope I get in through the lottery. Last year I had to donate some money to a Charity to get in so hopefully I will fair better this year and have a little better luck. I mean I don't mind helping out a good cause but I think the lottery is unfair sometimes, but any way enough of that. My legs felt tired today and I have noticed that when I wear my Kayano 13's that my legs seem to get tired quicker I have heard that about this version but I will not use them for a week and see if that makes a difference. My splits went as follows; 8:19(150), 8:43(143), 9:00(143), 8:46(145), 8:34(141), 8:10(149), 8:06(152), 8:26(150). Miles six and seven were not real fast about 30 seconds off my Marathon goal pace so I entered them as MPM's. My average pace was, 8:31 with my Heart Rate averaging 146 total time was 1:08:06 . I felt better on my long run on Saturday than what I felt today, my legs still might be a little tired from Saturday's run

 

See ya tomorrow

This has been one heck of a week, my legs are dead. I am having a hard time getting  my legs to go and co-operate. It was beautiful morning though and the tempature was perfect. I went on my flat course today and I kept my pace at a nice easy jog as my legs wouldn't let me do anything else. I might be a little dehydrated and I didn't get enough carbs yesterday seems to be the general order, so I am going to try and eat alittle better the rest of the week and see if that makes a difference. My total time today was; 1:14:18 and my average pace was 9:09 with an average Heart Rate of 136.  I am not giving my splits today as it would be a total waist of your time and mine. I hope I will feel better tomorrow, but we shall see.

See Ya Tomorrow!

No run today, my legs are dead for some reason. I ran 8 miles yesterday and walked 18 holes of golf at Hobble Creek Golf Course, which is really hilly. I don't know what is going on with my legs they should be stronger than this but they feel really dead, like I have hit the wall or something. Tomorrow will be my standard 8 miles and then Saturday will be a long run of 12 miles. I hope my legs will be feeling better.

See you Then

Easy run this morning, I was just trying to get the legs moving. My legs gave out again with about 2 miles left to go in the run. I don't know what is causing this, it might be the increase of the weekly mileage or I have just hit a wall. My average pace was 8:26 with a total time of 1:07:28, and my heart rate average was 140.  My splits went as follows;8:26(135), 8:11(142), 8:24(143), 8:20(146), 8:12(141), 8:16(144), 8:44(139), 8:47(137). I am not sure why my legs are so tired all the time you would think as much as I work at it they would be stronger than they are, I don't know. Tomorrow I will be doing a twelve miler, I hope my legs will co-operate.

 

See Ya Tomorrow

No running today. I did walk 18 holes of golf today at Hobble Creek Golf Course, it was a beautiful morning. Total miles walked were about 3 miles, very hilly. Played from the blue tee's and shot 75, my putting was horrible which cost me about 4 strokes. I could of easily shot even par or  better had I putted halfway decent, oh well there is always next time.

 

Running again  on Monday.
