It was cold and windy today so I went to the Gym.

12 Miles Total with 4 at MGP.

They put a sign up for me in the Gym.

Romans 13:1 

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.

 

I really need to find another gym.

Well the "Thunder Sleet" didn't materalize so we didn't get any ice on the roads.

I decided last night to go the the gym again. I ran 8 miles at a 9:00 pace. I changed machines but still broke the 60 minute rule. :-(

Jeremiah 10:13

When He utters His voice, there is a tumult of waters in the heavens, And He causes the clouds to ascend from the end of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain, And brings out the wind from His storehouses.

I tried something different this morning. I decided to run 1 mile @ 8:15 then 1 mile @ 7:15 and continue this for my entire 15 mile run. I was very pleased with the results. It seems I do much better when I vary my pace and not just run a steady state. Even my overall HR was much better than on previous 15 mile runs. 7:40 @ 150 HR seems pretty good, this is much faster than my best marathon pace and HR at 15 miles. Hopefully good things are to come!

I am curious what you guys think about this workout...not necessarly the results but more the pholosophy. Is this something that's ever done in "real" training? I'm just kinda making my training up as I go along right now. I've wanted to jump into a specific program but just can't seem to do it.

DL was right. I felt fine today after my run yesterday. I wasn't planning to run today but I woke up at 6:15 and couldn't go back to sleep, so at 6:45 I went out and ran 4.2 miles at a very easy pace of 9:00.

I have planned a 20 miler tomorrow but may have to push it to Saturday as I'm going roping this evening an may not get home till late.

Any suggestion as to how I should run my 20 miler?

Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

Didn't get home until 2:30 am so I didn't run my 20 miler today. 4.25 Miles @ 8:15 Pace - HR 135.

Anybody want to run 20 with me tomorrow? :-)

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 
Two are better than one, 
because they have a good return for their labor: 
If either of them falls down, 
one can help the other up. 
But pity anyone who falls 
and has no one to help them up.

I would call this a "run fail"... I wasn't feeling it at all today. When I went out to run it started raining. Although it was not that cold, my hands and feet imediatly got cold. I believe I was also very dehydrated as my start weight was only 152 when I started. When I finished running I was at 149. This weight is not good for me. (I have some problems that cause me to urinate a lot at night some times and the result is what happened today.) I also had goosebumps all over when I finished. I've heard this is a sign of dehydration. On top of all of this I got rubbed raw in places you can't imagine. I even rubbed raw through the typical bandaid locations and bled through to my shirt. Ouch!!!

Day like this makes me want to quit running...
