My left hip was aching a little the entire run.  I'm assuming it is strained from to much running on the slippery snow this week.

It snowed 12-14" on Sunday but this morning the roads were plowed decent but there were still plenty of slick spots.  My legs were not recovered from the Friday and Saturday runs so I took it easy today.

I tried to enter the SL Running club 10K this morning but online registration was closed.  I then called the race director and he said I could sign up the morning of the race (Feb 9th).  I'll plan on doing that unless it snows.

It always helps to remember some of my -35' runs in Rexburg, ID and then 14' doesn't seem so bad.  I did a 2 mile tempo run ( 5:58 down and 6:26 up for an avg. of 6:12) which is one second faster than last weeks avg.  I really wimped out the second mile.  No metal toughness.  Hopefully, I'll find it before Saturday so Tom doesn't whip me to bad.

10AM 10K race time, Temp. 35-40'

It was a near perfect day for a winter run.  The only way to make it better would have been to have some sun.  I was a little nervous before the race that my good buddy Tom that has become a great runner would keep up with me and outduel me at the end.  After we got a mile under our belts or racing bibs my confidence in beating Tom started to rise.  I felt good and could tell I was ready to race.  I'm sure that Januarys training where I ran more miles in a month than I ever have helped.  At the half way point Tom was just a few seconds behind me and I was feeling good so I decided to pick up the pace and put some distance between me and him which happened to be my masters competition. See times below.

Mile 1, 6:18   Mile 2, 6:07   Mile 3, 6:21,   1st 5k (19:25)

Mile 4, 5:45   Mile 5, 5:59,   Mile 6, 5:55    2nd 5k (18:20)

Last 0.2, 1:20 (6:07 avg.)

Mile avg. - 6:04

The last mile was difficult so I know that I raced hard. 

After Tom & I ran a couple of miles to cool down.  I took overall masters and Tom took 2nd.

My legs didn't hurt going up and down stairs Sunday so I thought I wasn't sore until this mornings jog and then I could tell that I had pushed it Saturday.

I felt good this morning and started off with a 6:59 mile.  My left hamsting was bugging just a little the whole run and I had to tell myself to slow down.  After the run my legs told me that I probably ran a little to fast and that I need to recover just a bit more.

Bad report day.  My left heel feels like PF is acting up and just next to the ball of that same foot, close to where the middle toes connect, was aching.  To many injuries occur at +40.  Also, I just purchased a pair of Asics Landreth 4 and they have a stupid seam just under the inside ankle bone that rubs.  The seam is for cosmetic purposes only.  Landreth 3 doesn't have that seam.  Why does a good running company do stupid things.

I gave Taunia roses last night and she had the most wonderful loving look in her eyes, like for just a moment she forgot that we had 5 kids with one still in diapers and life was good.  Anyway she doesn't need to get me anything for Valentines day now. 

Back to running.  I chose well to run at noon and not in the morning.  The road and Jordan path were plowed and mostly dry. 

On Monday I stared wearing new Landreth 4s and by Wednesday I was haveing foot problems.  I put on my old Landreth 3s today and it felt much better, however, my foot is still aching a little.  I'm hoping that it will go away as I continue to run in the 3s without me having to take a sick day from running.

Garmin was feeling a little low so he didn't join me so I had to enjoy the ducks, geese, & river with the sun shining by myself.  Ran easy.  My foot is still aching some hoping it will go away.

Doing 60+ miles this week left my legs pretty tired.  I'm hoping they will get use to it.  My foot hurt a little this morning but not to bad.  I'm a little worried that I'll have to take time off to get it better and of course that is a bad option as I'm trying to get ready for a marathon.

My legs were not fresh for the run but they held up ok.

I was running at about a 8min pace when I met Cal running the other direction.  I turned around and ran with him for awhile.  Cal picked up the pace so we were running closer to 7min miles.  My foot seems to hurt less the faster I go.  Anyway it was good seeing Cal.

Forgot Garmin so not sure exactly how far I went in 55 minutes.

My legs were feeling ok but not great but today seemed like a good day for a 3 mile tempo run.  I decided I wanted to give myself a goal of 6:15 mile avg. that I new I could achieve.  I also wanted to finish the last mile strong even if it hurt because I wimped out the last mile of the 10K a couple of Saturdays ago.  I ran a 6:14, 6:06, 6:11.  The 2nd mile is slightly down and the last mile is slightly uphill.  I was happy with the times. 

The base of my third toe still aches.  I'm guessing it is either a stress fracture, nerve problem, or tendon problem.  Anyway, I can stand the pain but it takes away a little from the runners high.  For now I'm going to keep running on it unless it gets worse.

No run.

Ball of middle toe pain got worse.  Now I remembered why I lost motivation a couple of years ago.  To many injuries.  Anyway I'll probably hang up my jogging shoes for a few days and see if it will get better.  If I can't do 60 miles a week for most of March I'll bag marathons this year.  The sad thing was that I kept feeling a little stronger every week.  I was hoping to put a little more distance between me and that Tom guy who has gotten way to fast.

I lossened up my shoe laces and wore two pair of socks and took some IBuprofen and decided to get a few faster miles in.  My middle toe ball of foot pain which is either Morton's Neuroma or Metatarsalgia if I'm diagnosing the problem correctly wasn't to bad.  The problem is it doesn't feel like it will stand up to 60 miles a week of abuse.

Bessemer, AL - On business trip this week.

Did 30 Min. on the bike and 15 on the eliptical at the hotel.  My toe pain is way down but not gone.

I ran with a co-worker named Jeff Hayden from Indiana.  He ran hard and I enjoyed the run.  My toe pain was hardly noticable during the run.  However, after the run I could feel it a little more.  This toe thing is really shutting me down.
