I finally was able to get a run in this week! I ran the Payson Park loop and extended down into the park, I decided to head up to the swimming pool and I was glad that I did cuz I was having stomach issues and there was a bathroom open so that was a blessing! after that I headed back to the house and I decided to run a little more and I ran out past the stake center to tack on a couple more miles. My average pace for the 10 miles was 8:29 and my total time was 1:25:53, I started out kind of slow and then slowly increased the pace a little each mile, I felt okay to. After the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. It was a good workout and I'm glad that I got it in for the first one of the week.

See ya tomorrow.

So this had to be the worst run of the year!!! My legs were shot from the get go and it was a freaking death march!!! I was fighting wind for some of it to so that just added to the frustration, I wanted to go 10 miles today but settled for the 8 as I feel it was doing me more harm than good to try and stay out there and fight the dead leg thing! Average pace was way slow at 9:21 and total time was at 1:15:10, as good as I felt yesterday is how bad I felt today! just brutal! I usually do some lower body strength training but I will for go that as my legs are pretty much dead.

Later

This has been a real sucky week for training, I missed the first two days of the week and then yesterday I started having stomach issues that persisted into today so there was no run yesterday or today either! I hope that next week will be better, I don't know if it was something that I ate yesterday or what but I am hoping that I will feel better for Monday so I can get a good start to the week.

See ya Monday.
