I wanted to start the month out right and today was going to be a perfect sunny day to do it at lunch time, until I fogot my joggin shorts.   Dumb, dumb, dumb!

I got home in time for a quick two miles just after the sun went down.  1st mile uphill in 6:40,  2nd mile back down BF in 8:34.

I was definately a little soar from yesterdays run.  I ran the 2nd mile BF in 9:20 with a little of it on grass.  It's suprising how much a little pebble can hurt on my baby feet.

I was able to get over 30 miles this week, much better than my 16 mile avg. over the last 4 weeks.  I was a little stiff on my way out this morning but got feeling better after a mile or so.  No BF miles today.  I'm going for a weekend recovery on the BF running.  My feet still feel like they haven't toughened up at all.

I went to the gym because it was raining, however, the treadmill was in use with someone waiting.  That has never happened.  Don't they know the treadmill is for my use.  Anyway, I did some weights and biked for 5 minutes and went and got my long sleeve shirt and headed outside for a run.

Near perfect day for running.  I ran the 4th mile BF in 7:45.  The 4th mile on the path going south has a painted lined down the middle of the path.  I could run much faster as long as I stayed on the smooth painted line.

I convinced Dallas to go with me even though he'd played two basketball games earlier in the day.  I thought Dallas would be a little tired and it would be a good day to try out my sandles for a longer run.  The sandles worked great but my lower calf muscles still need to build up to take the different BF stride. 

Dallas wasn't near as tired as I thought he'd be.  As with any youngster the closer we got to home the faster he went.  We sprinted the last 100 yards.

My calf muscle that runs from my heel to my calf is still aching from Saturdays sandal run.  I felt really good today except for that so I kept the pace slower than I would have gone otherwise.  I probably should have taken another day off.  I did run one mile BF.

Ran two miles BF in 8:35 min. avg.  Two miles BF is a lot futher than one mile.  My feet were complaining pretty good by the end of two.

Unfortunately it's a busy day so I snuck a run in by going a half hour early to get Dallas from soccer practice.  I ran at the big soccer field with my sandals on grass.  My feet were still a little sore from yesterdays BF run so I wore the sandals.

Noon run, cloudy, very windy, temp 50'

I decided to start out running with the wind.  1st mile felt good in 6:50 and since I just signed me and Dallas up for a 5K in two weeks I decided I'd do one fast.  The 2nd mile was in 5:56 and it wasn't easy, glad that wind was pushing me.  My third mile was BF in 8:40 and after that my right calf started aching a bit.  I must has strained my calf a bit with the fast running.  I then eased on back around 8 min. miles.

Nice day for a run.  I ran my 2nd mile in 6:20 and my 4th mile BF in 8:00.  On the way back my miles were all under 7.   Also the last few miles my big toe on my left foot kept going numb.  I'll blame in on the shoes.  I do like taking a break before and after the BF miles as I take off and on my shoes.

The gym sounded aweful.  I did bring my warmup pants but only had a short sleeved shirt so I decided to try outside.  I started off against the wind and thought I better go fast or freeze to death.  After the half way point when I got to turn around and go with the wind I was avg. 7 min. miles so I decided to keep it up even though I wasn't worried about freezing to death anymore.

After a little persuasion I got Dallas to go with me for his longest run ever.  He did great until about 4.5 miles when he got a side ache.  He couldn't ever get rid of it which may have slowed the last few miles a little.

No BF the last few days.  The ball of my left foot is acting up a bit.  I'll see if resting it will help.  Also last years knee tendon is coming back to haunt me.

I thought I'd run the 2nd and 3rd downhill miles fast to see how I could do to get and idea of what I might expect for Saturdays 5k.  I ran those fast miles in 6:15 avg. and I was glad I wasn't planning on doing a third.  After about 4.5 miles my left quad started cramping up.  I took a two minute stretch break and it was just fine the rest of the way.
