Another long run today. I wasn't able to run Friday or Saturday so my week total fell to 50. I really wanted to be at 60.

This run was very similar to my long run two weeks ago. When I started I couldn't remember exactly what I had done but now realize I didn't start out quite so slow. Last time I started the first 5 miles with an 8:00 pace. On this run I started with a 8:15 pace. My pace was 1 second slower this time than before. That was okay but I really had to push on the last 5 miles to bring the average pace down to 7:43.

It seems like I have a long way to go, I feel I should be running this run with an average pace of 7:30.

2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

I ran this run based on JG's suggestion...to stay in the Hansons Marathon method - Easy Run. :-) Wait...JG hadn't posted the suggestion until after this run. I guess I'm phychic!

8 Easy miles @ 9:00 Pace at the gym.

Psalm 37:7-9 

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices! Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath! Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil. For the evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.

Well, hopefully I'm well now. I still felt bad yesterday but when I woke up this morning I was much better. I slept in so I couldn't run in the morning. I went to the gym at lunch, which I have never done before, and ran 6 miles at mostly a fairly slow pace. My legs are sure rested.

6 Miles on TM with 2 at MP.

Jeremiah 33:6 

Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them and reveal to them abundance of prosperity and security.
