Very easy run today, I am still very sore from Saturdays run down Payson canyon, quads and calfs are still very stiff and sore.  I ran 5 miles on my own and then went with my wife for 2 miles to round out the seven miles. My foot felt okay for the most part, I think I am on the road to recovery with my foot, knock on wood. My heal is a still alittle sore though I don't know if that is a seperate injury or the same thing, I will have to watch it and see. Average heart rate was 126, and I also did 20 minutes of upper body weight training I am hoping for less sore legs tomorrow, but we shall see. I am real proud of my wife she is staying the course and doing really well, she is a tropper.

Another easy recovery run today. I ran 6 miles on my own and then ran 2 miles with my wife at a 11:00 pace trying to pace her. It is a good way for me to keep my heart rate down and cool down when running with my wife. The first 6 miles where done in 55:33 and my haert rate hovered around 128 and average pace was around 9:15. My heart rate for the two miles that I ran with my wife was at 118. My foot is really sore today and I am wondering if the shoes that I am wairing is causing the problem! They are Wave Nirvana 3 and I only have just over 100 miles on them so I don't think it is a mileage issue, I usually run in the kayano or the 2120 and my foot seems to do better in those shoes ( less pain) than the Nirvana's. I alternate between the three shoes so I run in each pair  twice a week. I might give the Nirvana's a rest for a while and see how my foot does and then go from there, this is the worst that my foot has felt for atleast a week, I thought I was on the tail end of the injury but by the way it is feeling today I almost feel like I have re-injured it and am starting all over again.... I don't know, I will see how it feels in the morning and then make a decision then on what direction to go.

No running today weather was real bad and I thought it would be a good day to give my foot a rest day, will continue tomorrow.  My foot needs to get better real soon so I can get going on training for SGM, I might take Saturday off and just see how it feels on monday to give it alittle more healing time.... I don't know.... I will see how it goes tomorrow..

Took yesterday off because of the weather. I ran a easy run again today average heart rate was 133 with an average pace of 9:04. My foot felt okay  but not 100 % by any means, and my legs where alittle wore out, but the easy pace made it easy to get through the run, I will try and run Harry's hill tomorrow to get some hill training and then Saturday try and get in another long run. I haven't been feeling real great lately, I think I might have a problem with my Thyroid which would explain the tired feeling I have been having the last 3 or 4 months. I will be seeing the Doctor on Wednesday of next week to hopefully get to the bottom of everything so I can get to feeling better. Other than that I am feeling okay, not much else to say except carry on.

I ran 6 miles on my own and then ran 2 miles with my wife trying to pace her and help her train for a 5 k in August. Avergae pace for the 6 miles was 9:04 with a average heart rate of 133, a nice easy pace.  I then paced Cindie for the 2 miles at an 11:00 pace and she was having a tough time but she got through it. She has been running for about a month now and she is frustrated because she hasn't lost any weight, I have told her that it takes time and she has to stick with it and the weight will start coming off as she improves her diet and is consistent with her mileage. She has been consistent with the running and the cross training but she is still working on the diet end of it, she is doing really well and I am very proud of her!!! No strength training today, I didn't have enough time.

I Woke up at 4:00am and headed out the door, in the few years that I have been running  I have had some bad day's but nothing compares to the way I felt this morning. I started feeling okay the first couple of miles but after mile 3 things started to go down hill, my legs where just feeling like jelly, like they had no strength. I know I didn't start to fast because my first mile split was 9:10 with my heart rate was at 130 so I was taking it easy,  but man were my legs gone. It was sure determination that I was able to finish the run, I had planned on running 12 to 13 miles but after mile three I new that wasn't going to happen. The last two miles were done in 10:30 minute miles, my wife could of given me a run for my money today, I still have not recovered and it is 10:45pm at night. I thought that maybe I didn't get enough sleep last night, I think 4 to 5 hours was about it, and all week I have felt kind of sluggish and out of it, and as I am writting this I am wiped out.

I am concerned about my throat, it is really hurting. I am suppose to see the doctor on Wednesday so hopefully I can get things figured out so I can start feeling better, well that's my prayer anyway. I have the riverwoods 10 miler coming up a week from today and I sure hope and pray that I am feeling better than I am now, and I mean that sincerely.
