Well, first run of the week and everything felt pretty good... My leg was not much of an issue but my dead legs were, they just have no zip to them at all so I must have lost a lot more fitness than I thought. My pace was real slow at 9:10 with a total time of 38:00, I did some one legged leg squats, two sets of 15 on each leg. I have decided to run try and train for the St. George half marathon in January, I am hoping that this well give me some motivation to start and try and be more consistent and help me to get out the door.

See you tomorrow.

I ran out past the old barn and towards Payson via canal road, I felt pretty good in the middle of the run after I was able to loosen up and I'm glad that I was able to get out. I think the main problem with me right now is I'm just not loose like I'm use to and it will take some time to get that back. I need to to stay consistent and get to where I'm running 5 days a week, even if its only 4 or 5 miles a day, just stay with it and hopefully it will start to come back. Average pace was 8:57 with a total time of 36:24, I finished up with some light stretching.

See ya tomorrow.

My goal this morning was to run out to GU corner and then back to the house which would give me just over 8 miles, I felt okay and I was glad that I was able to handle the mileage. I felt pretty good in my legs just tired and slow but thats okay I know it will come back eventually. My average pace was slow as mentioned at 9:08 with a total time 1:13:38, Like I said pretty slow but today wasn't about speed it was about covering the distance and not having it kill me which I was able to do. My goal for next week is to get some kind of run in everyday and see how everything goes, hopefully I can do that. I really am having a hard time with not being able to run the SGM, I didn't think it would really bother me to much as it has happened before but this one is kind of stinging... Maybe next year.

See ya Monday.
