I ran out to Payson Park this morning via canal road, my legs were pretty dead on the way out but then on the way back they seemed a lot better. I hope that means that I'm finally getting stronger after my long runs on Saturday, the last few Monday's my legs have been really dead and I had a pretty strong long run last Saturday so I really thought the old legs would be fried this morning. My average pace was a little slower than usual at 8:52 with a total time of 1:03:40, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then finished up with some push-ups. I did have a VPB and it was pretty much out in the open so I hope no one saw me, I also on the way back saw 3 big bucks crossing canal road. One was a big 4 point and then 2 pretty good sized 3 points, big bodies and wide racks, its great to get out in the mornings and see things like that!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran Payson Canyon this morning with Chad and the gang, 3 up and 3 down, pace was pretty good coming down with a small progression run... They went like this 7:48, 7:27, 7:21, the last one I kind of gave up on a little bit my Calf has been bothering me and I just didn't want to over do it... I hope it is not going to give me problems again like in  years past. When I got home I tacked on another mile out to the Stake Center and back, my average pace was 8:12 with a total time of 59:50 for the 7 plus miles. It was a good run and I am glad that I was able to get her done, afterwards I did my lower body weight training, just the usual!

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards Mini Gu but I got side track cuz there was a deep lake on canal road and I didn't want to ruin my shoes so I had to modify the route just a bit, my calf was really sore the first little bit but then it seemed to feel better the farther I ran so I am hoping it won't be to bad going down the road. Since I didn't run yesterday on the advice of my PT I went a little bit farther than normal, Joel worked me over pretty good on Wednesday and I think that was the soreness that I was feeling for the first little bit. My average pace was 8:39 with a total time of 1:19:32, after the run I did my lower body weight training, just the usual. So it ended up being a pretty good run after all, I will run 3 or 4 miles tomorrow just to make up for missing Wednesday.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out towards Payson via canal road in the rain, calf was a bit of a bother but seemed a little better towards the end. I saw Ethan out with Cross Country team getting her done, so proud of him and his dedication. I just wanted to get out this morning for a small run nothing spectacular, just get the legs moving. My average pace was 8:36 with a total time of 38:52, I hope my calf will cooperate and let me get in a good long run tomorrow and I sure hope this thing doesn't slow me down! I guess time will tell on that issue.

See ya tomorrow.

So the plan today was to hopefully be able to run if my calf would cooperate, the first 2 to 3 miles were very difficult but it seemed like after it got loosened up it felt pretty good and I was able to keep going. I ran out towards Mini Gu and ran into the guys and then we headed up over Harry's and then down to the stake center and then back out to GU corner and then down on the river trail. I had just 15 miles or so and then Chad picked me and Pat loss up and I had him drop me off at the stake center and then I ran a few more out past my house. My legs just didn't have it to day, they felt a lot better last week but I guess that's all part of the process. My average pace way slower than last week at 8:51 with a total time of 2:37:30, it was still a great time with the guys and I just hope this darn calf will heal up. I will have a lighter week next week where I'll be out of town over the weekend so I will just have a 6 to 7 miler on next Saturday down in Huntington beach, I will be back in time for the Speedy Spaniard on the 24th though.

See ya tomorrow.
