I had a great long Slow Run with Huans32 today. I'm thinking that next weekend I will be headed to the Provo canyon area to get a better feel of the UVM course.

Today is a tempo run. I'll do about 6 miles. 2 miles warmup, 3 miles at marathon pace and a 1 mile cool down. After the run I'll hit the weights for an hour and then it's off to watch NCIS on the  t wee (tv). The run went very well, I really hate it when I fall off my nutrition system and fall into the trap of having lunch at the local gut bomb place....I hate running with that stuffed feeling. I will make the approiate changes today!

Went out and ran 4 miles at race pace. Got myself back on my nutrition program. you can really feel your nutrition on a run when you fall off the wagon and eat junk.

I also went and drove he UVM course, this is really going to be a great point to point race.

I did a 10 miler this morning. I deviated from my scheduled rest day because I felt like running a bit further this morning.  

Life is looking good, My weight is under control, should be at 160 for UVM.

Blood pressure is: 98/67 s/d

Resting Heartbeat: 39 bpm (this morning)

That was fun. Went to PRs' trail in Draper and did a 11.04 easy extra run today.How I enjoy those. T'was much fun to meet up with some of the "F R Blogsters" and knock out some miles and tell some stories. I think I've finally turned the corner and I'm actually getting back to my "old" self again, pre surgery days. Now all I have to do is get my speed up a little better and my weight down a few more pounds and then its look out UVM.

I was scheduled for a 13 / 17 run today. I decided to change it up and do a 10 miler on my most difficult hill run. I averaged just under 9 minute mile pace overall. My fastest speed was a 6.3 mpm. I think that I will make the whole cut back week a change up that ends with 55+ miles total by doing  5 / 11 mile runs this week.

Sounds interesting, I'll have to see how it works out in reality.

Todays run is a planned 10 miler, a mixture of speed work, up hills and down hills. Hope the area dries out....

It turned out to be a perfect afternoon run. 50 degrees, sunshine and no wind. 10 miles, average pace 8.5, fastest 5.02. I feel like my speed and hill work are coming together with some reduced miles per minute as I get in better running shape. I've got a plan and I'm keepin' to it!

It's been a pretty rainy start to the day. I might have to blow off my planned 10 miler and just head over to the gym for some elleptical and a light workout.I don't mind starting a run and then have it start raining on me but I hate to start a run when it's already raining! Yck!

Well, the skies dried and the sun came out for a little while so I dropped my tools and hit the road....I got my 10 miles in.

Todays run was pretty good, I scaled back to an 8 miler because I felt a little tired and then again I'm shooting for a 20 on Sunday. My overall speed is continuing to get faster as my mileage continues to climb. Sounds like I'm getting stronger and faster, guess I'll just have to continue to do what I'm doing as it looks like it working.

Average speed: 8.2, fastest 5.02.

Finished an 18.5 long slow run today...don't you just love this great weather? I felt a little fatigued from last week but over all it's coming together.....

Hopefully I will get my schedule straight and back on track.....this coming week is a 60 mile week.

Now that I've got what I consider my first really long run done I will now be focusing in on speed training and weight loss.

going out for a 5 mile recovery run today with a trip to the gym for a W/O.  I'm feeling really good after my 18.5 miler sunday.

When I got home from work I decided to just take a real day off from the past week of running....I'll pick it up Tuesday with a 10 or 12 miler......tyi.

I fell off the nutrition plan when I went to dinner with a friend thats moving to the East coast at the end of the week. Oh well, I'll just get it together Tuesday and move on!

I finally got home and made it out on the road. Although it was pretty tough to stay running in a straight line with those vicious winds, and I'm greatful that it didn't start raining.....I made it a 10 miler.

Today is scheduled for another 10 - 12 miler, hope the winds have gone away and the temps don't drop below freezing before I can get out there tonight.

I'm really not into "resistance running" like last night. I'm more like one of those take the path of least resistance kind of runners.

The nutrition program seems to be back in line.....

 

Got out and got a 10.5 in. No wind, no rain and about 50 degrees. My plan for 60 miles and a 1.5 pound drop for the week are insight.........

Nice cold morning 12 miler up and down the Sandy mountains. All right, now I'll get in a 9 miler Saturday and I'll have my 60 miles for the week. Then I check my weight on Sunday!!!!
