Less than a year ago I went on an 11 mile run with my dad for one of his training runs for his marathon.  My body fell apart about 8 miles into that run and I couldn't walk very easily for then next couple of days.  The pace for that run was deffinately over 8 minutes. This run was completely different.  This run was probably a little to fast, but I felt good for that most part.  My calfs were handling it fine and my foot was the only thing that was bothering me... I need to remeber to take good care of my left foot.  I averaged 6:40 for this run with my last three miles at 6:24, 6:20, and 6:09.  It was a good solid run with not very much downhill so it was good for me mentally.

Just a nice easy run avg. 7:13 pace.  4 miles of it was on the treadmill.  Felt pretty good.

supposed to do a 3 mile pace run.  Simplot is today so I had to do it early in the moring, and my body is still sore but thankfully not as bad.  mile and a half warm up then my splits were 6:05, 6:07, and on the last one I was going about the same pace when my stomach cramped up really bad and I had to stop a half mile in.  It never really loosed up so i just jogged really slow home.  for how crappy I was feeling this moring I didn't think it was going to be my stomach that stopped me.  This week has been really hard so far to get out and feel good about running.  Hopefully that changes before the long run.

I didn't drink enough or eat enough before my run, and I was pushing my son which was awesome but added another 30 pounds.  I got out about 2.5 before I had to stop because I got light headed.  Was able to do one more on the way back and felt ok but still not great. Oh and I am still extremely sore.

I should never lift again.  Especially my lower body.  My hamstrings, quads, and groin are all ripped apart, and it made it very hard to run.

I don't really understand these tempo runs that this program has me do but it's essentially a 10 minute accelaration to 10k pace and hold for a few minutes then back off.  I averaged 6 minute pace for the build up to 10k then 5:34 pace for 4 minutes which again was probably a little to fast but I just wanted to be done.  Today was a hard day to get out and run because I'm still tired but everything is still feeling good which is a plus and I need to take advantage of that.
