I ran the Payson park loop this morning but I didn't extend to the Park, I cut out the rollers, I didn't feel real great going out but I felt a little better on the way back. My average pace was 8:30 with  total time of 53:02, it was syre a beautiful morning and I am glad that I was bale to get out. Good luck to all those fellow runners running the Boston Marathon today it sure is a great day for running.

I got home from work around 5:30 and I decided to go and get a run in so I ran the mail box route which is to run to the woodland hills mailboxes via Mount Loafer school and then back to the house. I extended down Woodland Hills drive to tack on another .20 and then I headed back home the same way I went out, lots of uphill and downhill, it pretty much killed me on the uphill my lungs just couldn't keep up with my legs. My average pace was 8:35 with a total time of 52:49, on the downhill I had a MP mile at 7:49... I finished up with some lite upper body weight training and some push-ups. it was a good workout and I'm glad I was able to get her done.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini Gu and towards GU but stopped halfway and then back to the house all via canal road. I felt a little off at the start but then better after I got loosened up but towards the end my legs were pretty trashed because of last nights hard workout, but pace was steady at 8:30 average with a total time of 1:01:30. I've had a pretty good week of training and I feel like I'm finding my groove again.

See ya tomorrow.

I waited for the rain to clear a bit and then I headed out to GU via Mini GU and then back to the house, weather was pretty good until the last couple of miles it started to rain again but it was tolerable. The last 3 miles I did some half mile pickups, nothing really hard just ran at a pace that made me  uncomfortable, took the first half of each one of those miles real easy. Average pace was 8:25 with a total time of 1:08:14, I felt good at times today and then not so good at times but I'm sure that is because of the increase in miles this week and finally having some consistency.

It was a great week for me.

See ya Monday
