Labor Day morning run, Temp. 55'

The whole family went jogging an  biking.  We let Taunia set the pace.  We did a walk jog pattern.  We were walking at about a 14 min/mile pace and jogging at about a 8:30 pace.

Unfortuately, this whole weekend my throat has been killing me.  Hope it ends soon.

About a 11:20 mile avg.

Noon run, sunny,  temp 75+

Today was my Icecream run day.  They were giving out free icecream sandwiches in the lobby.  So I got the jogging clothes on and grabbed a icecream sandwich and started jogging.  The first half a mile went a little slower due to eating the icecream but then the rest of the run was powered by sugar.  My throat is still hurting just a bit so I sucked on a halls cough drop the rest of the way.  For awhile it tested like chocolate covered cough drop. 

Time 28:50,  Mile avg. 6:50

I was considering making a late enterance to the SF half but the cold slowed me down so I couldn't get a confidence builder longer run in over the weekend.

Morning run, Temp 50-55

The morning started off terrible.  Thing one & two woke me up to early and my nose was running and my head ached.  I'm glad I didn't do the SF half.  I originally wanted to go around 7min miles but it just wasn't going to happen.  So I settled for 7:30 for the new goal.

Time 1:14:47,  Mile avg. 7:29

I don't like colds.

With my cold on the way out I could only feel it for the 1st couple of miles,  after that the pain went high enough that I didn't notice the cold until the run was over.

I'm running the Utah Marathon Relay in South Jordan this Saturday with some ward members.  Last year the winners were over 3 hours.  I'm guessing our team will run a 3:30 this year.  I'm sure if I grabbed a few of the WBR team we could win it with ease.

Morning run, temp 68

I have an appointment at lunch today so I decide to get up early and do a morning run.  My nose has stopped running but I still have a litte congestion in my chest.  Hopefully, that will be gone soon. 

I decided to run as I felt with the hope of pushing the pace a little.  I felt pretty good so I had a good run.  If I didn't have a little chest congestion I'm sure I'd have run a little faster.

I ran the UT marathon relay route.  The first 2-3 miles my legs were complaining.  Running two days in a row got my legs a little stiff.  But the second half of the run started to feel much better.  I went from old man to young man running.

Taunia, thanks for baking brown homade bread.  It sure was good for lunch with peanut butter & honey.  Kinda like eating healthy cake.

The marathon relay race started 20 minutes late but it was a great day for running with the temperatures starting at about 55'. 

I had to go to a soccer game so I started off and won my heat by about 50 seconds.  With reduced training and a cold over the last week I thought I did good.  Of course I'd like to have run closer to 6 evens but I didn't have enough motivation.  I ran the 1st mile in 5:50 and it felt good but from then on the pace slowed down.  I couldn't convince myself it was worth it to run any harder than I was.  Mile avg. 6:16

I ran it with ward members Annette Kelly (44:45), Andrea Scott (42:21), Sue Pebbler (42:50), & John Pebbler(42:09).  The winning team got a 2:56 and all other teams were above 3 hours.  They had 54 teams total.

Saturday morning run, partly cloudy, temp. 60-65

Supposidly Larry signed me up for the SGM.  To bad I've only been averaging less than 20 miles a week the last 6 weeks.  I've also gain almost 5lbs since the WBR.  Anyway I decided to do a long run at close to Marathon pace and see how my body would handle it.  After about 8 miles I was thinking that 26 miles is a long long way.  After 12 miles I got a few twinges in my legs that tell me that my legs will cramp up in a few miles unless I slow down.  So I slowed down to 8:00 min miles for the last couple that are slightly down hill.  Also at about mile 11 my left arch started to get a hot spot telling me that a blister was coming on.  Luckily it didn't get to bad.

Yesterday I was thinking I might try to run the 1st half with Tom but after todays run I was thinking if I did that then I'd do a 90 minute 1st half and a 150 minute 2nd half.  I think I'd rather do two 100 minute halves.  I'll have to see if my idea changes as I ramp up for the marathon next week.

Time 1:45:45,  Mile avg. 7:28

Also, my knees have been aching after the run.  I'm not use to distances anymore.  Why do I get old and fat?

Noon run, sunny, temp 60'

My legs were a little sore and tight but luckily they let me run ok.  I thought I'd try to get just under 8 min. miles and I was able to do that without much problem.  I'm shooting for 40 miles this week as I just got a lucky invite to the SGM.  I'm hoping the quick ramp up to 40 miles won't cause any injuries.    The temperature was great for a noon jog.

I wanted to do a run between 7 & 7:30 miles.  I'm trying to do a somewhat aggressive week to get ready for the SGM.  I'm hoping I don't burn out.  My legs we a little tight and sore but they let me run once I got going.  I don't think running the SGM with this kind of training is a smart thing to do but it sounded like fun to see some running buddies.

I've pushed myself pretty hard this week trying to get right on the edge of running to much to fast for my conditioning.  My legs were tired but not sore so I pushed them again today.  I emailed the SGM and they emailed back and said I'm IN.  Big thanks to Larry!  I've been eating unusually healthy trying to do whatever I can to get ready for the big race.  I miss my evening bowl of Ice Cream.

Morning run, Temp 60-65'

I started at 6:30AM and only had the sun on me the last 5 miles.  I wanted to run at marathon pace today and see how my legs would hold out.  They did good.  I was definatley tired when I finished and I doubt my legs would hold up for another 12 miles but we'll have to wait and see for next week.  Hopefully,  I haven't worn out my legs this week trying to get ready for the SGM.  I ran 42 miles in an average of 7:21 miles.  The prior 3 weeks I've only run 52 miles.  Not a good way to train for a marathon.  But I'm excited for the fun of the race.

Morning run, temp. 61'

The temperature is not suppose to be 61 in the morning the week before the SGM.  Usually, I'm excited to go to SG to bask in the warmth and sun.  This September has been hot.  To much Global Warming I guess.  That darn President Bush.

I had to go golfinig today for work so I couldn't do a lunch run and had to go in the morning.  I took it easy so my golf game wouldn't suffer much.  Actually, I really don't have much of a golf game.  Anyway when someone else is buying golfing is alot of fun.
