I finally was able to run out to Payson park its been over a year since I was able to extend out on that route, and it felt good! My IT band stayed about the same and didn't really bother me that much, I did start to feel it towards the end but I have no pain right now and I was able to roll it for a few minutes this morning and last night.,.. I will have to see how I do tomorrow and how it recovers but I feel like I am on the up swing here, knock on wood of course;-) I kept the pace pretty easy on the rollers going into the Park and then coming back, my average pace was 8:25 with my HR average at 136, total time was 59:39. I finished up with some strength training on the Bowflex, upper body, and then I rolled my leg to finish up... I hope I can get in a similar length run in tomorrow with no pain, but we shall see.

 

See ya tomorrow.

Details later...

Details- I ran out towards Mini GU corner and the IT band was a little bothersome but not to bad, but on the way back I had to walk and stretch a couple of times and then I realized that I had my neutral shoes on!!! Oh Crap! After returning home I changed shoes and tacked on an extra mile and then I returned home again to find my son Ethan waiting to go out, so I stretched for a minute and then we did a mile loop around close to the house, average for that mile was 8:50. He did really well. I just couldn't turn him down! I finished up with some push-ups (80) and some rolling of the leg to help with the IT band issues, average pace for the run was  9:00. I'm not sure on the total time I don't have my watch here at work and all I can remember is the average pace for some reason, probably because it was much slower than I am use to;-(

See you tomorrow

Just lost my whole entry so I'm ticked! My legs were dead this morning IT Band hurt about 4 miles into the run so I had the regular routine of stopping and stretching. I have never had my legs feel this dead before in my life and between that and my IT band Issues I was wondering why I was even out there, very frustrated and discouraged! No watch this morning but I know my pace was really really slow, 9:30 or higher... I forgot to charged my Garmin last night so I have no numbers to give you, it was very warm out there this morning so maybe that contributed to my dead legs. Or maybe it was the lack of water consumption yesterday, I'm so stupid!!!

Rolled my leg after I finished up, see ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards Mini GU Corner and then back to my house, no pain at all, I also did some quarter mile pick-ups at the beginning and at the end of one of the miles and then I had 2 sub 8 minute miles in there too. I will count them as Marathon pace miles. Average pace for the first 7 miles was 8:19 with my HR at 139, total time 59:01 after that I came home and Ethan was waiting so I ran a mile with him at just an easy pace (9:05). IT band felt pretty good although at the end of the 7 miles I started to feel it a little bit, but on the last mile it didn't really bother me at all, so thats a good sign:-)

Push-ups will come later as I need to get going, see ya tomorrow.

Easy run out towards Payson, legs were very sore and tired again so I ran pretty easy for the most part. Average pace was 8:25 and am not sure of the total time, I had to leave real early this morning to head out to Roosevelt to meet with a client so I don't have any other info... The IT Band was pretty good, no pain, but I only went 4 miles so I will have to see how it goes tomorrow and then evaluate where I am at with this darn thing.

See ya tomorrow.

Well I never thought I would be so over joyed to get a 10 miler in but thats what I am;-) My IT Band started to hurt a little bit towards the end but for the most part I feel like I could have went farther but I decided to not over do it and stop at 10 miles... The average pace for the first 8 was 8:16, so pretty up beat, at least for me anyway and then I ran a couple miles with my son Ethan at a 9:00 pace to round out the 10. The first 8 miles I ran in 1:06:31 and then with Ethan we ran 2 miles in 18:46 mile 1 was 8:41 and then mile 2 in 9:25... It was a pretty good workout over all, I am hoping that next week I can run more in the 12 to 13 miles on Saturday and then just slowly increase each week and then start adding in some hills.

I plan on rolling my leg after I finish posting my run for today, see ya Monday.
