Morning run, temp. 24'

After taking about 10 days off I decided to give the foot a try.  I didn't feel any pain during the run but after the run it started acting up a bit.  I'll run tomorrow if the pain goes away before then.

I ran with Eric May at work.  He is training for triathalons this summer but he is going to run the Moab 1/2 this weekend.  He decided he wanted to do some fast miles which sounded good to me. 

Time 47:08,  Mile avg. - 6:43

Foot didn't hurt during the run.  To much other pain but I could feel it a little after.

Ran with Eric.  Saw Cal on the path as he sped by us.  My foot started hurting pretty good the last couple of miles.  Maybe I should learn how to swim.  To bad the Jordan river isn't a little cleaner.

It seems like my foot won't allow me to run far so I thought I'd run fast.  Did a tempo run ( 6:31, 6:22, 6:23, 6:21, 6:29).  I can tell my body is getting out of shape.  It didn't like the punishment. 

To lose a religious testimony you quit attending church, praying, reading scriptures, etc....

I feel like I'm losing my running testimony.  I don't run every day, the new runners world came and I havn't read it yet, I only blog every few days etc...

Went out to do some 7 minute miles.  My first mile was in 6:30, I then saw Cal and joined with him.  He was nice enough to slow me down so we were doing 7:30's, then I decide to do the last mile at 6:00 even pace and I ended up with a 6:01.  Cal stayed with me for about 3/4 of the fast mile, then we parted ways.

Morning Run, Temp. 30'

Since I'm running less than 20 miles this week I thought I would run the miles a little faster. I wanted to do around 7 minute miles. After 6 miles I was at about a 7:05 pace. I didn't really feel like picking up the pace the last couple of miles but I could hear Tom's footsteps right behind me so I picked it up and ran a 6:30 & a 6:20 with the last 0.13 miles at a 5:40 pace.  I still didn't fell like I was able to shake Tom.  Actually I didn't see him but I felt like he passed me by. 

It's a shame that I went from running 60 miles/week to about 40 miles total over the last 3 weeks.  Darn foot problem.

Nice day for a run.  Continuing with lower & faster miles until I feel the foot problem is gone.

My foot was bothering me just a tiny bit before the run.  I almost didn't go but when I got out it never really bothered me to much.  I decided to throw in a fast mile on mile 4 because it was down hill and wind aided.  I was able to produce a 5:25 mile.  I was most happy that it didn't kill me to do it.

I took work off today and decided to push Kenna in our jogging stroller.  We didn't go to far or fast.

To many low mile weeks in a row are adding up.  I feel like I'm losing fitness every week.  I thought I'd feel great this morning but my body didn't seem to want to go to fast.  I decided to force a fast mile and did one in 5:56 to get my body going. 

I was going to go 7 miles but after 2 miles my foot gave me a little of the old pain I've been trying to get rid of.

Near perfect running weather, decided to do a 3 mile tempo run.  3 fast miles hurt.  Why do I do it?  Anyway I must run weird on my left foot when I run fast because the muscle on the outside of my left shin gets tired as if I've used it until it is dead tired and then I start flapping my left foot which can't be good for it.  I have to slow way down or stop and let it recover for a minute if I want to run without flapping.  I should just give up running and get fat.  Luckily I saw Cal and ran with him for the last mile.  That helped my form to run with someone.

Since I ran fast yesterday I was going to take it easy and enjoy the nice day.  I had run my 1st mile in 8:10 when I heard footsteps coming up on me.  Low and behold, Cal was running fast.  Forgive me Paul but I couldn't help it.  I picked up the pace and ran the rest of Cal's tempo run which was 4 miles at about 6:31 avg.

Today & tomorrow need to be recovery days.  With two fast days in a row and playing basketball last night my legs were glad for some slower miles. 

My middle ball of foot toe pain is still around.  The pain is very mild, however, it seems every day I run on it it gets a little bit worse.  If I take a day or two off then it is almost unnoticable for a day or two.  It doesn't feel like it can take much more than 5 miles a day.

Morning run, a few sprinkles, temp 40-45

I didn't run yesterday because my foot was hurting and I had to much work to do.  I felt pretty good today.  My foot didn't bother me at all until about mile 4 and it never got bad so I kept on running.  I found a better song to sing while running than Sasha's Bingo song.  Instead of saying the line from the Peter Pan movie "I believe in Fairies, I do I do"  I sang, "I believe in running, I do, I do".  "I believe in PR's, I do, I do." etc...

Also I was wondering as I ran by the new South Jordan Temple if someone could organize a Temple marathon were we would run by both South Jordan temples and the Draper temple and if there is enough distance to hit the SL temple.  The T-shirt could have a scripture on it and pictures of temples.

Back to winter this morning.  The roads were snowy and slushy.  I however enjoyed this mornings run because it is the best my foot has felt on a run since the injury over a month ago.  I'll try not to get my hopes up that my foot is getting better finally.
