I'm working on my E-Pad so I can't download my spreadsheet. 

Today was the second track workout on the RLRF program. I warmed up for 2 mile @ 7:55 pace then ran 5 x 800 @ 2:51 avg pace. My Hr avg was 163. I then ran  2 mile cool-down @ 8:30 pace. I took 2 minutes rest between each 800. The scheule called for 4 but I ran 5. Last time I did this workout I ran the 4 800's in 2:59. The training calls for 2:58.

Callie was with me and ran a couple of 400's. Her legs are feeling good, now that she's taken the orthotics out of her shoes. Hopefully she can continue with any more pain or injury. We are going to go and buy her some more shoes today that have a little arch support in them....any suggestions...???

Today was supposed to be a cross-training day. I just ran 2 easy miles with Callie and called it a recovery day.

Tempo run on week 2 of the RLRF program. Last time I did this same run I ran a 7:19 avg. pace but the temperature was 49 degrees and not 77 degrees. I felt pretty good throughout the run but after the 5 mile tempo I started to really feel tired. I was probably dehydrated some from the heat and humidity.

Today was supposed to be an off day or a cross-training day but I decided to just go out and run a few miles instead. I don't have time today to bike and I've really done no cross training in the last couple of weeks so I didn't think a few extra miles would hurt.

Callie is gone so I'm again running by myself. The only excitment is my new neighbors have gotten inspired by seeing me run and now they are walking almost every morning. I at least get to say "Hi" as I run by them.

Completed my RLRF long run for today a little faster and longer than scheduled. I was pretty much beat after this run. My legs were tired the entire day.

Romans 10:9-11

That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. 11 As the Scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”
