I was thinking I'd run a couple of fast miles but after only a few steps my left hip got a small jolt of paint.  It didn't jolt again but there was a dull ache the rest of the run.  Maybe I need a hip replacement or a brain replacement. I think I just run easy until the hip thing dies down.

Nice day for a run.  When I ran hard today I didn't notice my left hip.  After a mile warm up I ran a 5:43 mile then took a 3 minute jog break and ran a 5:47 mile then costed the rest of the way.  Amazing that my fast runs are a minute/mile slower than Haile's whole marathon average.

This week is FYR-end close week.  I've averaged about 13hrs a day and I picked up a soar throat.  I decided to bust out of the office and clear my head.  Ran with Eric M. and did an easy run.

Nice Autumn day for a run.  My throat was only about half as sore this morning as it has been in the last few days.  Hopefully, I'm on the downward end of the sore throat. 

Reading all the great success stories of the SGM and following Tom and Logan as they have progressed this year makes me want to train better next year and see if I can get a PR in the marathon.  We'll see if the enthusiam makes it through the winter months.

I was thinking about doing a 2 mile temp run and I was hoping to get 5:45's.  I ran a couple of easy miles then ran a 5:46 mile wind aided.  As I turning into the wind I was hoping to get under 6:00 but I just couldn't get going.  I ended up with a 6:20.  I even new Cal was on the trail and if I ran hard enough I might be able to catch him but that didn't help either. 

When I have a day that I don't perform how I wanted to I get this funny feeling that somone is catching up to me.

I played a little ward basketball last night.  It is always fun to play when you're in shape.  Basketball combined with yesterdays workout has left me a little sore so I was glad for an easy day.  I started out doing miles just over 8 minutes but after running a few miles I started thinking that if I picked up the pace a little that I could get my mile average under 8's.  My body might not have been happy with the desision but my mind was.

My legs were still a little sore from basketball a couple of days ago but I felt good and had energy.  I ran to Bingham Highs track and ran 1 mile on the track in 6:35 and then headed back home.  Nobody was catching me today.

My legs were feeling like they needed an easy day.  I was running around 8 minute miles for a couple of miles then Cal showed up on the path and ran with me, however, he was doing a fast day so I had to speed up.  We ran a couple of miles together averaging about 7:05-7:10 miles.  As soon as he left I slowed back down.  Hopefully my legs will feel fresh tomorrow and fell like doing a tempo run.

Afternoon run, partly sunny, temp. 65'

I couldn't get out tell 2:30 this afternoon, to many fires to put out.  As soon as I started running I could tell my 2 mile tempo run would be tough.  I wanted to run the miles under 6 minutes.  I ran about 2.5 miles then I started the tempo run.  The first mile felt good with a 5:56 but I could tell the 2nd mile was going to hurt.  I push hard and ran a 5:54 which I then immediatly went to a 10+ minute mile pace for the next quarter mile trying to recover.  I'm sure 2 sub 6's are probably a little faster than I should be running for a tempo run but it felt good to know I could do it.

Nice run, I wore a long sleeve shirt and was glad during the second half of the run when it started to sprinkle and got a little more windy.

I played basketball last night for over an hour and I thought my legs would be dead but they were ok.  I ran at close to 8:00 minute pace for the first 4 miles then just to make sure my mile average would be under 8 I ran the last mile in 7:20.

Morning run, cloudy, very windy, temp 50'

Puchasing a used car for my teenage drive took all my free time yesterday along with throwing a birthday party for my 14 year old daughter so I didn't run. 

However, today I went out planning on doing 8 miles at however I felt.  I always hope I feel good on Saturdays so I can run a bit harder knowing that I won't be running on Sunday.  Today I felt good from the start.  Knowing I felt good I decided to see if I could run an average of just under 7 minute miles.  The 1st 4 miles was slightly uphill and I average about 7:20 miles and on the way back I was running into the wind the 1st 2 miles and I averaged about 6:45's,  at that point I was doubting I would get my under 7 mintue miles but the last 2 miles I didn't have to fight the wind so I was able to get my goal.

I got to see the prophet yesterday at stake conference.  That was cool. 

I felt good this morning.  I probably should have run just a little easier so I'd be primed for a tempo run tomorrow but it is hard to run easy when you feel good.

Morning run, Temp 35'

I like my lunch time runs when the sun is out but this week I won't be able to do that due to work.  So today I got up early and did a morning run that had a 2 mile tempo run in it.  The run started out ok except it was dark and cold but it got worse as I tried to do the farmers blow and got a bloody nose.  I need to get a humidifyer at home. 

Anyway after a couple of miles I started the tempo run and was hoping that each mile would be just under 6 minutes.  The first mile was in 6:10.  I think the bloody nose and haveing to breath out through my mouth and in through my nose and mouth bothered by consentration so I buckled down and decided I didn't care if I had problems I was going to get under 6 minutes on the second mile.  I got a 5:55.  Yahoo!
