Out towards Payson park but I stopped short as I was not feeling good at all. I couldnr beat the 10 minute guy... But then on the way back my legs loosened up and I felt a little better and added a little when I got back to the house. My average pace was 9:44 with a total time of 1:10:19, I finished up with some upper body weights and some pushups.

See you tomorrow.

Mount Loafer to the Mailboxes and then back down to canal road. I felt decent on the uphill anbd a little wobbly on the downhill and then pretty good on the flat portions. I ran some strides and pickups and the legs responded pretty good really. I 3.20 MP miles at, 8:08, 8:23, 8:05 on the the flat, .20 8:36, average pac was 9:18 with a total time of 1:07:01. I finished up with some lower body weights. I need this run to restore some confidence in myself.

See you tomorrow.

Crashed Hard on this one. It happen between 10 and 11 and it was a battle to just get back to the house. Not sure If this is working for me right now... I feel like I am getting weaker and not stronger. Luckly 13 miles was on the schedule so I guess thats okay. My average pace was 9:56 with a total time of 2:10:14. Sorry for all the complaining but I feel like I should be doing better at this point. Oh well...

See you Monday.
