workout was supposed to be 5xhill repeats.  Downhill has felt pretty narley on my foot recently so I didn't do the repeats I just ended up to doing an average run with a few good uphills in it and only gradual downhills.  average pace was 7:00.  Felt ok and my foot is not getting better, but not getting worse either.

little over a mile warm up then did a couple 300's that were probably two fast for me to go but they felt pretty good.  Not as much running as I wanted to get in today, but I did get a church ball game in.  We lost the game, but I'm glad it's over.  I should be able to concentrate on running a lot more now.

This day just got busy because of a track meet.  I need to be sure to get some mileage in before school on days that I have track meets.

It was nice to run in the rain.  I'm grateful it was cooler and rainy because if it was hot I wouldn't have lasted.  I was feeling a little light headed towards the middle of the run, but my foot didn't hurt until around 4.5.  It's been alright so far.  We will see how it goes tomorrow with my pace run. average pace for today was 6:50.  I'm thinking about changing my goal pace to 6:20 avg per mile which would get me around a 2:46:00 marathon.  I just haven't been able to train as consistantly as I need for a 6:10 and 6:20 feels pretty easy on my runs right now so we'll see.

This was supposed to be an 8 mile pace run.  I did 7.  I could have done 8 but it was hurting just a little to much on my legs and my foot so I wanted to make sure I had enough in me for my long run tomorrow.  It was a rough run.  the first three miles were uphill with the wind at my back, and when I turned around the wind made it feel as though I did not have any down hill on the way back.  Splits were: 6:06, 6:16, 6:14, 5:49, 5:51, 4:49, 5:43.  average was 5:59.  This was too fast, and it was definately faster than marathon pace because I could not have held that for a marathon.

This was the longest run I have ever done.  My previous record was 15, and that was 3 years ago with a group of guys.  This was on my own and it felt long!  The weather was nice temperature wise but the wind was not great.  I hate wind more every day.  The wind was at my back or my side for the first half and I averaged 7:10.  The last half I thought i needed to push a little harder to keep the pace because the wind was in my face so I averaged 6:30.  I still felt comfortable although my calf was hurting a bit the entire run and my left IT band started getting a little tight towards the end, but overall it was a decent run.
