After 6 months of work I finally decided to run at lunchtime.  I ran on the Jordan river path between 45th South and 33rd South.

My legs are worn out from jogging 4 straight days.  Going from 23 miles for the entire month of January to 20+ miles in one week takes it's toll.  Hopefully, I can stay injury free as I try to make 20+ miles a week my new base.

My legs were a bit tired from 5 days of running this week.  My total mileage from this week was as much as the entire month of January.  I pushed hard the last couple of miles to stay below 8 min. mile avg.

I didn't get enough sleep but my body woke up before the alarm and was ready to go for a jog.  I'm sure I'll pay for it at work today.  During the run I felt pretty good so I pushed the pace.

I just beat the 8 min. man.  I'll be happy when he isn't so hard to beat.

My goal was to stay ahead of the 8 min. man on my longest run of the year. 

The PF and Bum-itis are acting up.  Stupid body.

Since I felt good this morning I decided I'd test out the system and do a fast run.  The word to describe the experience is PAIN.  When I'm not in great shape and I run really hard I get the blood taste in my mouth and I got it this morning, so I new I'd run hard.  Now my body, a couple hours after, still feels weak.  Hopefully, I can gain 30 seconds a mile on my fast workout as I get in better shape over the next few months.

I was planning on running about 8:15 minute miles to recover from the last couple days but running still seems fun since I'm just getting back into it and running faster is funner so I was unwise and ran a little faster.

Longest run of year and I beat the 8 min. man.  If I could get rid of the bum-itis and the PF I'd love running.

I saw a few of the WBR women on my team and one was jogging and two were walking.  I can't believe my team mates would walk!

This morning was fast pace morning.  I was hoping to match or beat last weeks mile avg. of 6:54.  I could tell right when I started that I wasn't feeling as good as last week.  I tried to push but just couldn't match last week.

Good run. A little cold running into the wind but perfect running with the wind.

I accomplished my goal of doing my longest run of the year and to beat 8.  The run seemed long.  My mental and physical stamina for the long run both need some work.
