This run was sponsored by Cal even if he didn't know it.  I'd had enough of running easy and Cal had been ripping off these fast runs so I thought I'd give it a try.  It was painful and it hurt.  The good thing about it was my lower back pain that is very mild quit hurting after about a mile because there was to much pain elsewhere to be able to detect the back pain.

Nice day for a run.  Much more enjoyable than yesterdays speed run.

I didn't want to do this run probably because of to much work and not enough sleep.  After I got out I felt a little better but no energy.  This run did get me to my 20 mile base I'm trying to hit every week.

I ran with Eric May at lunch.  He is in better shape than I am and so the pace seem fast for me.  You know you're in trouble when the person your jogging with says they just want to take it easy and go between 7:00-7:30 miles.  Hopefully, I'll start catching up to him this spring.

Played some hoops last night so I was a little sore today.  Why do I have to get old?

I played ward ball last night so I felt like doing some old man running.  After a while I started feeling a little better and managed to run the last couple of miles around 7:40.

I thought after a couple of days rest I'd feel great, but it wasn't the case.  I wanted to get under 8 minute miles but I thought it'd be easy.  I had to push.  Maybe to much junkfood over the weekend.  Anyway not much of a confidence builder.

I signed up for the Provo half on April 4th.  At this point I'll be very happy with a sub 1:30.

This is my first weekday morning run of the year.  It was nice to do an old morning route but the weather was crudy.  At least the snow wasn't sticking to the ground.  I pushed a little harder than my body wanted to go.  I'll show you who's boss.

Started feeling old by the time I was done.  Little back ache and the bum-itis taking away my youth.

The Provo City half I signed up for is getting me a little nervous.  I decided I need to do at least a couple of fast miles this week.  The last two miles I averaged 6:40 but they had a little down hill in them.

Lossing weight is annoying.  I only ate 2 meals on Saturday and two on Sunday with a few healthy snacks inbetween.  However, it sure was fun putting on 10 lbs last fall but now I've got to pay.  Unfortunately I've still got 7 lbs to go.

1st day of shorts and short sleeved shirt.  I decided to make it my longest run of the year.  I could feel it by the time I was done.  I hope I keep getting in better shape before the Provo half in 5 weeks.

A nice warmer than normal morning.  My legs felt good for the 1st mile then they remembered that they were a little tired the rest of the way.

The body felt good today.  I wish I always felt this good on my runs.  This was my longest run of the year. 

The only problem is that my left heel started hurting a couple of days ago.  My tendon-bum-itis is always around but I'm kind of use to that problem.  I hate it when I start getting in good shape and uping my miles and then little dumb injuries start popping up.
