Left my Garmin at work on Friday so I ran without it today. I just used my everyday sports watch so I only have overall time. Right at 2:00:00 for 15 miles (8:00 Pace). Not as good as the last couple of weeks but okay after have the flu all this week.

I guess I really need to start my Boston training this week. I'm really not excited about starting a defined regiment of training. :-(

To the gym for some easy work and upper body weights.

Matthew 7:13-14 

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

I forgot to bring my Garmin home from work again so I only have overall time for the 10 miles. Nice and easy pace @ 8:09 Pace (no HR monitor).

I got this for Christmas! :-)

 

Leviticus 26:1 

“You shall not make idols for yourselves or erect an image or pillar, and you shall not set up a figured stone in your land to bow down to it, for I am the Lord your God.

I was aiming for a much better run but the wind killed me!

I thought I could do 3 @ 7:30, 3 @ 7:15 and 3 @ 7:00 but I didn't come close. 29 mph wind really kills the speed. 

Burr it was cold but I did have enough clothes on. :-)
