I decided to start really training again which means getting up at 6am and getting after it so today was the day. When I woke up I felt like I was going to throw-up, but I went ahead and drank some Gatorade and it seemed to settle my stomach some. I headed out the door and I knew right off the bat that I wasn't feeling good, my stomach just was way upset and my legs had nothing in them so I must have a touch of something... I ran the Payson Park loop and the I extended down into the park, my average pace was 8:56 with a total time of 1:04:13, last week I ran this same route and did it under an hour so you can see I was really struggling and not feeling well with the way slow pace. I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups, I'm glad I stuck with it and got through it because I am not feeling good at all, just real weak.

See ya tomorrow.

Up at 6am and then out the door, I ran out to Mini Gu via canal road I felt a little better than yesterday but I still had the unsettled stomach and at times it wasn't fun, It was better than yesterday so that is a plus. My average pace was a little better than yesterday too at 8:30 with a total time of 52:01, after the run I did my lower body weight training; leg presses, squats, calf raises and one legged leg raises. I hope I feel better tomorrow stomach wise, I hate feeling like that in the mornings!

See ya tomorrow.

My stomach felt a little better this morning but my old legs did not! I ran the Payson park loop again but I cut out the rollers, I didn't extend down into the park. My average pace was way slow again at 8:48 and my total time was 54:44, it was really hard on the way back my legs were just way dead, it was a death march. After the run I did my upper body weight training, but I kept it pretty light just one set of each exercise.

See ya tomorrow.

This morning I ran out to Mini Gu via canal road and man was it cold for May 2nd I had to wear a long sleeve shirt and gloves, crazy stuff! I felt pretty darn good today, once I got back to the house I decided to tack on another mile so I ran out towards the old barn on the canal road. My average pace for the run was 8:28 with a total time of 1:00:48, after the run I did my lower body weight training, squats, leg raises, legs presses and one legged squats and some calf raises. A good job today and I am proud of the way I have got my butt out of bed this whole week, it does a body good!!!

Fridays are usually optional running days for me but I was feeling pretty good so I went for a smaller run, I ran out past the old barn on canal road and then out towards Payson I kept the pace steady but not to bad. My average pace was 8:32 with a total time of 34:45, after the run I did some light upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups.

See ya tomorrow.

I wasn't sure how well my legs would feel this morning after all the yard work yesterday, I put down 3 yards of mulch in all my flower beds yesterday so They were pretty tired from getting in and out of the trailer... I was pleasantly surprised and they did really well, they were a little tired towards the end but I was faster on the way back so that was a good sign. I ran out to Gu and then down into the river bottoms and then back to the house the same way, there were a lot runners out this morning so that was cool to see. My average pace was 8:32 with a total time of 1:26:01, it was a very good week of training this week at least for me anyway. Now it's down to Snow to pack up Abby and bring her home for the summer.

See ya Monday
