Morning run, sunny, Temp. 15'

I waited until the sun came up so it wouldn't seem so cold.  My legs were a little tight before starting the run from a couple of faster miles yesterday but I didn't notice it as soon as I started going.  There was almost no traffic on the roads so I ran my out and back towards Copperton.  It has about a 75-100 feet per mile incline.  My legs felt good until the last mile when they started aching a bit.

My throat is acting like I'm getting a cold.  But I still feel pretty good so I decided to do an eays run but I went out fast and didn't slow down much.  I don't like running at an easy pace but I need to force myself to do it more so I'll be fresh for the next day when I do want to run hard.

Ran with Eric today.  We both wanted to take it easy.  My legs are tired from the last 3 days at 7:15 pace.  I'll probably need another easy day tomorrow so I'll feel good for a Saturday run.

Ran to Olympic Oval and watched Dallas's soccer game and saw Apallo Ohno and ran home.  There was about 2" of snow.  My legs wern't fresh so I took it easy.

This was the most I've run in a week since June07.  Unfortunalty, my left heel started aching and my left knee and my lower back.  Maybe I'm getting to old.

After 3 miles I decided to do a mile at what I thought would be a good marathon pace.  I did it in 6:40 but I could tell I wouldn't be able to keep it up for 26 miles.  I'm still a little tired from last weeks higher miles.  I'm probably closer to a 7:00 marathon pace. 

My left heel was still hurting a bit this morning.  Hopefully, I can get it under control.

Even though I didn't want to run a tempo run it seemed like the best time to do it.  I did a 4 mile tempo run.  Mile 1 - 6:00 down hill, Mile 2 - 6:28 level, Mile 3 - 6:18 down hill, Mile 4 - 6:45 up hill.  It is hard to run a tempo run in the cold by yourself in the dark.  Tempo mile avg. 6:23.

My 1st 50 mile week since June 07.  Trying to get my legs use to longer runs.  The last few days of slow helped but my legs still are complaining a bit.

I took a flight out to Bismark ND this morning for work and arrived at 4:00pm.  I thought I'd have time for a jog before dinner and start getting my 50+ miles in for the week but my luggage didn't arrive.  Bummer!  It is suppose to get in later tonight.

My luggage arrived at 12:45am so I was able to get a morning run in.  Unfortunatley, class takes about 11 hours plus eating out for dinner so there isn't much time for excercise.

The hotel is next to a fitness center which I get into for free.  The treadmills have TV's on them and luckily I brought some headphones.  Anyway it's much easier to run on a treadmill while flipping through channels on the TV.  My calves were a little soar from the 18 yesterday so I kept it easy today.

The treadmill goes 12 mph but I only did that for a half a mile.  Yahoo, no more treadmill.  I'll be land running again tomorrow.

There was about 3-4 inches of snow with packed snow where the cars had driving.  It was kinda slick and I took it easy. 

As I've increased in miles over the last couple months I don't feel like I'm getting any faster.  It seems like my legs are always a little tired and never fresh.  Hopefully, this will change after I get up to 60 miles per week and stablize out.

I decided to do a longer tempo run at a slower pace partly due to occasional slick spots on the road.  I was shooting for 6:45 average.  Miles ranged from 6:31 to 7:32 with the faster miles on the down hill sections.  Near the end of the 7 miles my quads were aching and I'm guessing it was due to yesterdays run in the snow where my quads must have done some extra work trying to stabalize me from slipping.  Anyway it felt good knowing I can still run miles near to what my friend Tom can.

Ran easy with Eric.  My legs probably would have appreciated even slower.  Tomorrow I'll be able to tell.

I decided to do a big loop I've been thinking of doing for a few months.  I was guessing it'd be between 13-16 miles.  The loop took me from 4,700 feet elevation to 5,200 feet and then it drops back down.  When I was half way done I was excited I was going to be dropping the rest of the way home.  I did a 7:01 and a 7:06 and then I told myself I'd better slow down because this is suppose to be a long slow run and I'm suppose to be working up to 60 miles a week without getting injured.

Morning run, Very Windy, Temp. 37'

I'm considering doing the 10K on Feb 9th but I haven't been running any fast miles as I've been increasing miles.  Since I was feeling good this morning I decided to do one fast mile on a down hill stretch with the strong wind at my back and I ran a 5:28.  The mile started to get hard at the end and I got the blood taste in my mouth that I get when I push really hard and I'm not used to it.  Now my legs are a little tired. 

Another note.  As far as I know I've never run over 200 miles in a month and I broke that milestone this month.

Yea, mostly dry ground to run on.  Decided to do a two mile temp run.  I was hoping for a 5:50 and a 6:10 as it is down then up hill.  I ended up with a 6:03 & a 6:23 for a 6:13 avg.  I guess I want to be in better shape or faster than I am.

Time 52:00, Mile avg. 7:25

239 miles this month.  Amazingly my body held up to the abuse probably because I ran some slower miles on easy days.
