I ran for a mile and then I ran down to the high school to meet the girls,  I ran a mile and a half with them and tried to run with the faster girls and ended up with a sub 8 minute mile (7:55), and then after running with them I ran home. My leg felt a whole lot better than it did on saturday and I have decided that if I have to miss any runs because of the pain I will miss some of my week day runs, I need to make sure I am able to get in my long runs on saturday. My average pace was 8:24 with a total time of 54:27, after the run I did my upper body weight training and then finsihed up with some push-ups. I am really proud of the girls they are up to to 1.5 miles and they are really feeling good about it, our goal is to get them to 3 miles by the time school starts and we are right on schedule.

See ya tomorrow.

I opted out of Payson Canyon run this morning and ran up Loafer canyon instead, 3 miles up and 3 miles down, my pace was pretty slow going up and then I took it pretty easy on the way down. My lower leg pain was about a 5 out of 10 so not real great, average p[ace was 9:15 with a total time of 56:40. This route is really steep on the way up so pace is way slow and then steep coming back down but i took it really slow on the way down as my leg was a little uncomfortable.

See ya tomorrow.

Warmed with a mile around my house and then I ran down to the high school to time the girls in their mile, They all did very well, most of them had PR's and so I think they are on the right track and they seem to me excited about running which is the main goal... I did a timed mile with them and mine was 7:25, we will time them again in a few weeks so my goal is to get that to a sub 7 mile. After the time trail I ran home and then after getting back to the house I ran out to the stake center to get a little more in. My average pace was 8:38 with a total time of 54:45, I finished up with some lite upper body weight training and then some push-ups. my leg was about a 4 on the pain scale so tolerable but it took a few miles to get it loosened up. It felt good on the mile  that I ran with the girls probably cuz the track is softer.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past the Stake Center and then towards Mini GU, ran into Chad and Dan and they convinced me to run up over Harry's Hill with them... That was not a wise decision as my legs were pretty much toast from the get go this Morning, I walked 18 Holes of golf at Hobble Creek Yesterday and carried my clubs, that was not a good choice either for that is the reason for the dead legs that I had today. It was a death march for most of the run, my leg was about a 4 to 5 on the pain level but tolerable. My average pace was way slow at 9:05 with a total time of 2:01:42, I feel so rotten right now I feel like I could sleep for a thousand years I'm so beat.

See ya tomorrow.
