Fun mountain run with my brother before he headed back to Canada.  Things were going great until mile 5 when I slipped on ice and landed on my back.  Wouldn't be a true trail run without an injury anyway.  Averaged about 9 minute pace for the whole thing.

4 miles on a treadmill... Not ideal but I fear many of my runs will be on a treadmill so I had better get used to it.  Averaged 7:30

Ran 2 miles then played churchball for which I gave myself another mile.  We lost but it was fun and I didn't get hurt which was good.

Felt good to actually get outside and run for a while.  Averaged 6:45 with some good hills.  I could feel my knee a little but overall my body felt pretty good.

My watch died on the warm up, but I think 6 miles is a solid estimate.  Little over two mile warm up then 3x800 @ the cemetary.  They felt fast or on pace but with no watch I was just running hard.  I wanted to get 4 in, but I'm just not their yet.  I also did some good strength training this moring for which I am already sore.

A good negative split run starring at 7:40 (uphill) and ending at 6:15 (down).   Stayed nice and relaxed the whole time.

This was a good long run for me.  Went on one of my favorite routes running by the river.    Took it nice and relaxed for the first half.  Had to stop and stretch out my calf around mile 5 becasuse my achilles was pulling a little, but that seemed to help a lot.  The last three miles I averaged 6:07 and felt pretty good.  It was all flat so no help from the hills.

Just some easy miles to recover from yesterday.  My foot started hurting pretty good around 1.5.

wirght training in the morning and a couple meetings after work made for about a 15 hour day.  Plus my foot still doesn't feel that great so a little rest will hopefully be a good thing.
