Towards Payson Park but I stopped short as my old legs were so tired and slow that it seemed counter productive to do any more. Frustrating! But I got her done inspite of the difficulty. My average pace was super slow at 10:20 with a total time of 1:04:30, I finished up with some upper body weights and some push-ups. Hopefully tomorrow will be better and more normal.

See you tomorrow.

Ran up Loafer Canyon to the gate and then extended to the Grove. I felt pretty good on the way up and the way down. A little wobbly on the downhill but thats to be expected with the climb up. I had 3 MP miles on the way down at 7:55, 7:55, 8:05, my average pace was 9:51 with a total time of 1:19:58. I finished up with some uper and lower body weights and some pushups.

See you tomorrow.

I felt pretty good at the start and then through about 10 or so miles and then I started to fade some... I stuck with it for about as long as I could with the heat of the day. My average pace was 9:26 with a total time of 2:32:33. I struggled with Motivation and getting out this week. Hopefully I can refocus and be better next week.

See you Monday.
