1 mile warmup, 4 miles at 6:53 pace with a .5 mile cool down between between the 4 miles and a .5 mile cooldown after.

Legs felt a little tired still.  I was hoping that the issue with my left leg would be better but it seems to be the same.  I find the more I run on it the better if feels.

I tried to run but I just didn't have the energy to deal with my foot and the pain.  Ran .5 mile and walked home in the pouring rain.  I was looking forward to a run in the rain.  Did a core workout at my house.

I figure I am going to give my ankle/foot a little rest.  I have been icing it since Saturday and it actually feels really good right now.  I almost ran this morning but I felt like I should hold off.  My initial plan was to take the week off, but the way it feel right now I think I might be able to go a little sooner.

45 minutes of hard elipitical followed by 15 minutes on the bike as a cool down.  The eliptical was the type that made it feel more like running so that was a plus.  Then core.  I was dripping sweat and my shirt looked like I just got out of the pool when I finished so I actually got a good workout this morning.

18 miles.  Everything felt pretty good today.  A few times I knew I wasn't 100%, but overall I was happy with the run.  Next week will be a 20 mile run.

8 miles this morning.  It was a chilly, windy, and overcast morning.  1 mile warmup at just over 8 min/mile followed by 6 miles at or under 6:50, 1 mile cooldown.  Everything felt pretty good and I was happy with the way I felt.  

AP for fun was 7:01.

I was out learning how to surf yesterday and a sting ray got my foot.  The initial sting did not hurt too bad, but about 5 minutes later the pain set in.  The instructor walked me to the lifeguard station and I sat there for 20 minutes soaking my foot in the hottest water they could give me.  When my daughter finished we both went back to our rental.  It took about 5 minutes to walk there and it was some pretty intense pain.  When we got there I soaked my foot for the next 2 hours in hot water and it made everything feel much better. I got up this morning and the foot felt good so I decided to run.  I could tell putting on my shoe there was some swelling, but nothing too bad.  I did a 4 mile run and everything felt as good as can be expected.  As I sit here now writing this, I am thinking running might not have been the best thing for me.  It's pretty swollen now and painful to move.  I'm hoping it will feel better tormorrow.  I was going to do my long run tomorrow, but I'm thinking that might be wishful thinking.  I'll play it by minute.  In the end though, it was totally worth it.  I really want to learn to surf and I loved every minute I was out learning and can't wait to do it again.

8.25 miles on the TM at a pace of 8:00/mile.

Foot felt pretty good.  The swelling is down but still there.  My legs felt fresh and ready to run.

I didn't have time to get all my miles in during my morning run so I did 4 miles after I got home from school.  It was a different workout but it felt good.  I also did wall squats after my morning run to try to push my legs a little harder.  I did wall squats during and after my Monday TM run.  I did more of a fast/tempo run with the morning run being faster than the evening run.  I pushed it hard on the downhills and went more tempo on the uphills.  Overall everything feels good.  My sting is still swollen and causes pain with pressure, but I am just dealing with that.

AM:  AP 7:20/mile

PM:  AP 7:39/mile

I did an afternoon run today.  Started about 1:40 so it was nice and warm.  The legs felt tired but I was just doing a recovery run.  It was nice to run out in the sun and get a little warmth.  It was a little windy so that cooled me off pretty good when it was coming at me.  I am still keeping the dream in my back pocket to BQ this race, but that is dependant on how the rest of my training goes.  Right now running downhill at a 7min/mile pace does not feel hard but I need to get the legs ready for the fatigue of the 26.2 miles.

It's been an 8.25 week.  I did a speed/tempo run today.  I ran around a track that is about 0.4 mile around.  I did 3 laps nice and slow and starting with lap 4 I did the lap at about 6:55/mile pace followed by a recovery lap.  I did this for the rest of the run.  Everything felt good considering I have run every day this week at different times.  Overall I was happy with the run.  Tomorrow will be a long run and I think I will take it nice and slow.

AP:  7:40/mile

I did a 20 mile long run this morning.  I actually felt really good and could have gone more so that was encouraging.  I didn't do anything at MP.  I have done a lot of miles this week and 2 other runs that were fast so I wanted to be careful.  The last couple miles I did just under 8 min/mile but that was all.

The other 5 come from a hike I did with our youth of the Church.  We I went and spent a day and a half hiking in the woods and pushing a handcart with them.  At nigh we did a very very very difficult hike with the handcart that took everything we had.  It was steep, rocky, rutted out, and difficult.  I am home and done with the Trek, but the miles I spent hiking this weekend I thing will really help me with marathon training.

3 miles of hiking during the day while pushing a handcart.  It's not running, but it's a real workout!
