I was finally able to get a nice run in this morning, I ran out to payson park and back and on the way out I did a little progression run started with a 8:22 and then a litle faster from there. 8:20, 8:14, 7:54 and then back down 8:12 after mile 5 I started to have real bad stomach issues and there was no way I was making it back to the house, it was just brutal!!! After taking care of business I was able to get back on track but I was still not feeling real great so I just kind of cruised in. My average pace for the run was pretty good and upbeat at 8:18 and my total time was 59:37, I could have been under 58 minutes had I not had that darn VPB, I had to walk a little on that mile as the cramps were unbearable!!! After the run I was able to do my upper body weight training and then finish up with some push-ups.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past Mini GU and then back to the house via canal road, my legs were not feeling it this morning so on the last 3 miles I did some half mile pickups towards the end of each mile, just to wake them up!  I tried to increase the speed on each one and Each one that I ran was between 7:30 and 7:40 mile, my average pace for the run was slow for the most part at 8:46 with a total time of 1:03:15 but I did finish strong so that was a plus. After the run I did my lower body weight training, squats, leg raises and one legged squats with weight and with out. I finished up with some time on the big foam roller so a pretty good workout even though I wasn't feeling it at first.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran the Big blue mail box route which basically just keeps going along the canal road trying to cut the hills out of the Payson Park loop so i ran that and just tried to stay steady.... My average pace was  8:34 with my total time at 1:05:33, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished with some push-ups and then I rolled my legs on the big foam roller. I will do hills tomorrow.

Later.

I ran the mailbox route in reverse, that means I started with Harry's hill then up to the mailboxes and then down to Mt Loafer school and then home via canal road. I felt pretty good going up and down today, my goal was to push the pace up and down and I did pretty well with both. My average pace was 8:24 with two MP miles in there and they were 7:28 and 7:58, I took it easy on the last downhill past the school as I didn't want to over do it. After the run I did my lower body weight training: one legged squats on the step and then regular squats and leg raises and calf raises and then I rolled both legs on the big foam roller. So a pretty good workout and I am pleased with the effort and I hope I can stay with it these next 3 weeks up to the Utah Valley Marathon, I should be ready to go.

See ya tomorrow.

Last 20 miler before Utah Valley. I ran out to the river-bottoms and then did my 2 mile loop down in there, and then I ran back to GU corner and then Headed towards woodland hills road to find my brother, picked him up there and then ran a few miles with him. Thanks for the TP bro, VPB here! Ran back to GU corner and then headed back towards the house. Once I got there I ran out past the old barn to Haskellville and then back to the house. I felt pretty good towards the end and the last 6 miles were my fastest miles at sub 8:20 pace, not real fast but a pretty good pace for a long run I just tried to not push it but not be lazy either. My average pace for the run was 8:30 with a total time of 2:51:09, after the run I had my egg and sausage breakfast! Well worth the run to be able to eat that, it was yummy!!!

See ya Monday.
