I had to physically and mentally take last week as a serious recovery week.  I didn't get many miles in so this week I am excited to run.  Had a good run this morning and everything felt good.  Had a couple nagging "pains" that I wanted to let heal up last week.

I had a 7AM class this morning so I was not able to get any more than 4 miles in.  I did the run a little faster than usual because I was up against the clock.  The goal is to get a run in every day this week so I am still on track.

AP:  8:00/mile

I had a really good run this morning.  My legs felt really good which suprised me.  This week has been a little more relaxed than last week so mentally I am in a better place and I think that helps with my running.

AP:  7:58

About 1 mile into my run I rolled my ankle on a pine cone.  Luckily I was able to move it around and still run on it but I took my run really slow.  It was raining and windy here too so that made my run a little slower too.  

AP:  8:48

I was able to do 16 miles this morning.  My daughter is here and we are going to six flags tomorrow so I had to get my long run in today.  The run had a lot of hills and was pretty challanging this morning.  I had to run on the roads because of all the rain we have got.  My legs were tired to finish, but I was happy with the run.  Next week I get to do my long run in Havasu with my buddy Rhett.  I'm sure it will make 18 miles feel like 5.

When I first started this program I thought my long running days were over.  I had a lot of mixed feelings about that but I felt this was the right thing to do.  I am very thankful today that I have been able to get my running life back (with the exception of my running buddy and therapist Rhett) and feel like I can compete again.  It has taken earlier mornings and a little more sacrafice on my part, but I feel like I am getting back in the game.  I was able to run 46 miles this week with a rolled ankle and all my schoolwork.  I'm looking forward to next week to up the miles a little more and get back to my running roots in Havasu with Rhett.  

Now I'm off to six flags to ride roller coasters with my kids all day:)

I did not run the last 2 days because of my finals.  Now that they are done I am free to run as long as I want.  I did 8 miles this morning and rolled my ankle again at mile 6.  I couldn't find what I rolled it on but it hurt worse than the first time, most likely because I am still trying to recover from it, but I was able to recover just fine and finish my run.  I need to be more careful with my runs I guess.

I had a good run this morning without any issues.  My ankle was painful for the run, but I expected that after rolling it yesterday.  The legs felt good and overall I felt good.  I did take things a little slower just to be careful with the ankle.

I got to go bac to Havasu this weekend and run with Rhett.  It was a lot of fun to catch up and get the chance to run with him again.  I think it felt like going back home for my whole family.  I had a decent run, but there were a few times my body was ready to scream at me.  Overall I had a blast hanging out with my running buddy again and getting to see Havasu again.

I took Monday as another rest day to let my ankle heal a little more from rolling it and the long run on Saturday.  The legs felt good this morning and the weather was amazing.

Had a nice run this morning.  I didn't have any pressing school things so I started later and just took things nice and slow.  I did a different run which had more hills.  

Then did some core work.

I didn't get a run done in the morning so I did it after I got home from school.  I never like running at the end of the day.  It was a really slow run and my side hurt most of the run.  This is something that only happens when I run at the end of the day.

Good run this morning.  It was good to have the quick turn around after running last night so my legs could get use to running when they are a little tired.  Weather was nice and the run was enjoyable.

I had a really good 21 mile run this morning.  The course I chose to do was very very challenging with a lot of hills.  About 12 miles of it was on trails with 6 uphill and 6 downhill.  I also had a couple areas before I got to the trails that were pretty tough uphills and downhills.  I chose this because I not only wanted to go long today, I wanted to challange myself.  I will say the last few miles were not easy.  I had my little girl come and run a little bit with me and bring me some food and something to drink with some carbs.  Once I got some of that in me I felt a lot better.  Overall I was really happy with the run today.  It boosted my confidence that I will be fine with the upcoming trail marathon I have in a few weeks.  My total running time was 3:37 so it was good to be on my feet for a long period of time.  Now I will take the day to recover!

I was able to sleep in a little and then get my run in.  My legs were still tired from the run on Saturday, but once I got going I felt pretty good.  I kept the run nice and slow with an AP of 8:50 to let the legs just recover.  Tomorrow is suppose to be bad weather so I will see what kind of a run I can get in.

My body felt tired today.  I think I ate too much bad stuff yesterday and didn't get much sleep Christmas Eve night.  I went slow so the AP was about 9:00/mile.

I was leaving to Lake Havasu early this morning so I only had time for a 6 mile run.

Had a really good run with Rhett this morning.  It is always good to run with him and get the chance to talk.  It was a cold morning in Havasu with lots of wind, but it was still a really fun run.

Had a really nice run with Rhett.  It was really cold and windy, but it was still a really nice run.  I have not run on the Havasu trails for a while so it was a challenging run for the 10 miles we were on the trails.  It has been fun to run again with Rhett.  I wanted to go longer but I had to be home by 9 and we didn't have any more time.  It was good to get a 10 mile run followed by a 20 mile run though.  Legs felt good after and I actually felt pretty good all day.

I started the day before New Years off right with a nice run.  The weather was about perfect and I actually felt really good after the 20 mile run on Saturday.  My legs felt fresh and ready to run.  I am hoping I can get a run in tomorrow but we will see how much the late night messes me up.

Happy New Year!
