Still... More Effort = Faster Pace

By HR this was my hardest effort for the 5 seven mile runs I have made in the last 10 days and since I've really started running again. My foot is not getting worse but it does get sore and I have to lay off it for a day to let it quit hurting. I am running over a 1 minute off my normal pace for this effort (when I'm in shape) right now...got a way to go.

Left my watch at work...Ran the small loop in just under 63 minutes. Not too happy with my non-improvement over the past month. This is starting to piss me off!

Breakthrough run...10 miles @ 8:15 pace. A couple of miles were below 8:00 so I'm calling them marathon pace. First run I've been happy with in a while!

Running in Gatesville. There to visit my parents and help Kirby (my son) move to a new apartment at Baylor.

 Logged, what I'm calling 3 marathon pace miles. Although they are slower than actual marathon, with the effort, I think that's what they really are. the 5th mile was hard. I did rest a few seconds before and after the faster miles.

Nice rolling hills.

Entered the Long Beach Half Marathon on October 10th. Hope the foot holds up and I can make some BIG improvements in running.

After a long stay in Georgia I'm back in Texas. I didn't have much time to run there so I lost some ground.

Just as an update my foot is still about the same. It's very sore to walk barefooted but with a good shoe it's just uncomfortable. After a run it's sore for a while but tolerable. The toe is just stiff and sits there and doesn't do much. The pain is really on the bottom of my foot.

Today was a better day to run than it's been in a while but the humidity still made it feel hot and I sweated a ton. The last miles were tiring because of the effort you can see by my HR. I'm ready for the 7's to be easy and the 6's to the hard and not 8's.

Rode with a new friend Cody, and his friend this morning. They are "real" cyclist and compete regularly. I am definitly not in condition to ride with them. I slowed them up quite a bit but made the 33 miles in a decent time. I was tired afterwords. I am also very uncomfortable riding with others, especially at high rates of speed.

LESS EFFORT ... FASTER PACE ... !

One month ago the same effort, under the same conditions, yielded a 1:20 slower per mile average. I felt much better at the end and actually pushed the pace to a reasonable marathon pace on the last mile. No way I could have done two marathon pace miles but ones a start!

Entered two Half Marathons in the next few months. The first one will basiclly be a training run and hopefully the second will be to push the pace!

I'm unsure about entering Boston this year eventhough I have a qualifying time 20+ minutes faster than my qualifying standard. I would like to go but the expense may keep me from doing it this year.
