I was a little tired on this run after two days of roping in Waco at a USTRC Event. I have a little mess-up on one steer or I could have won pretty well in one event. I still won the Incentive which paid all of my fees back for the weekend and a very nice trophy buckle. I'll try to post a picture tomorrow of the buckle.

Long Run - 15 Miles @ 7:46

I was a little sluggish on this run but was also tired from a long day roping on Saturday. No problem with this pace and distance but still don't have confidence to maintain for another 11 miles at 7:26.

It's better to have a partner than go it alone. Share the work, share the wealth. And if one falls down, the other helps, But if there's no one to help, tough!

Cross-Training day at the gym.

15 Miles on the Stationary Bike

2 Miles on the Elliptical

Boaring, but good since my legs were a little sore from the long run on Sunday. I think they were sore because I basiclly sat around all day after the run (sitting and visiting my parents and driving).

Ahhh...Ha ha...made a mistake reading my workout plan today and didn't realize it until I went to put these number in my spreadsheet. I was suppose to run two 1000m after the 200m but I only ran one. Oh well...things have been going well and I don't think it will hurt that much to miss one 1000m run. I'll probably just run an extra Tempo mile on Thursday to punish myself for making the mistake!

Cross-Training Day...

16 Miles on the Stationary Bike and 3 Miles on the Elliptical.

Here is the trophy buckle from my win last Saturday:

James 5:3

3 Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure!

Temp Run Today on the RLRF program. Scheduled was 5 miles Tempo but I went ahead and ran 6 to make up for my slacking on Tuesday :-) It's funny because when I finished the run I was thinking..."this run should have been a little easier", but as I now go back and look at my times and HR I realize that I ran a faster pace on this training run than I did in my 10K race last summer (7:00 @ 93HR  pace vs 6:54 @ 87HR). I also know that I could have gained several seconds per mile if I were really racing. I was really spent when I finished the 10K race and after this run I felt great.

I ran in my new Kinvara 2 shoes. They feel good but I can tell the difference in lack of cushioning on the sole. I think my feet will be a little sore after running in these shoes.

I don't know if I should be happy or unhappy with this run. Although the scheduled pace was 7:56 for 20 miles and I ran a 7:49 for 20 I still didn't feel it was sucessful. I just felt heavy throughout the run, my legs seemed to get really stiff and I felt like I ran out of energy near the end and I almost feel like my body temperature started dropping too. The effort to finish the run was very difficult even though my HR actually began dropping after mile 15. To run a 7:29 pace for 26.2 miles seems impossible right now!

I don't think I fuled up properly on this run. I felt heavy from the start. After about 14 miles I felt like I just didn't have any energy and my legs got really heavy and stiff. At about mile 18 I started to feel a little sick and after the run I continued to feel bad a while.  Notice how my HR started dropping at mile 16 also.


Luke 18:27
