I decided to push a little harder today than I have since I started back running. Fastest pace and highest HR for any run at any distance. I could feel the lactate in my legs nearing the end of the run and my left hamstring got a little tight. All in all it was a good run though. I originally planned to run 10 but was running short on time so I made it 8.5.

My foot is feeling better with the regiment of Aleve. The weather is better but still warm enough to get a good sweat on.

Still trying to decide how to run the Long Beach Half Marathon this weekend but I've pretty much decided to just run it with Callie and hopelly help her hit her goal. I think I'm in about 7:20 condition right now but if I run with Callie it will be more like 8:45. The weather is supposed to be warm (I think actually in the high 60's to start) somewhat like what I'm running in right now. We'll see...

I say, "run with Callie"! You never know how many opportunities you'll have to run with your daughter and at this stage of your return to running you don't need to go out and break something and louse up all your hard work.

From Hillbilly Runner on Wed, Oct 07, 2015 at 16:21:28 from 76.122.210.58

Nice run... I'm with Tom but on the other hand you're competitive and you're not getting any younger so if you want to push it it's your choice.

From SlowJoe on Wed, Oct 07, 2015 at 20:12:07 from 107.77.100.25

Normally I'd say run it hard, but on a warm day when you're still in the middle stage of your comeback...it'll be a fun run with Callie. Have a great trip!

From Rhett on Thu, Oct 08, 2015 at 14:19:07 from 199.117.154.54

Running with Callie sounds like the smart thing to do. Have fun. Enjoy the run.

Thanks guys for the advice. Yes...I will be running with Callie. Probably about a 9:00 pace. This is the pace that always seems to hurt me more. I guess it's the posture/way I run...? It will be fun though. I hope to be an encouragement to Callie and not a bother. :-)

Well Bro Preston, you should be finished with your 1/2 Mary run with your daughter...which brings me to asking where your race report is?????

From I Just Run on Sun, Oct 11, 2015 at 11:22:18 from 66.249.84.229

Ha ha Tom,

Finished a while ago but stayed to take in some of the race experience. The run went good. Now I know kow it is to run a race "easy". It was pretty warm though, pretty much like running in texas right now. Callie did pretty good but a little slower than she wanted at a 9:12 pace. I'll write a full report in a day or two. Thanks for checking in.
