Back in Texas. The weather was pretty nice this morning but I decided to go to the gym and give my legs a break from the pounding.

8 Miles total with 4 on the TM @ 7:30 pace.

I was dreading this run but I felt like I had to do it. I went to bed late and got up at 5:00 am to run. I was tired before I started.

The weather conditions were fair: 70 degrees, 68% humidity, 63 degree dew point, no wind.

I believe this gives a fair indication as to my condition right now. I need to run more "fast" miles to get used to a faster cadence. I should be able to keep my heart rate in the 150's throughout a run like this but the low energy didn't allow me to do it today. I'm not training under the RLRF program right now but if I were about four weeks into the training I should be running about this distance and pace, so I feel like I'm on track for preparing for SA Marathon.

I'm happy with my mileage for the last few weeks and my legs (joints) seem to be holding up pretty well. I would like to keep the mileage between 50-60 miles and add in some cross-training when I'm released to ride my bike.

Not much to report. Ran 7 miles without a watch. Mostly very slow with a few blasts of speed.

I was still tired from yesterdays run.

I take my son, Kirby, to college tomorrow. This will leave us with an empty nest. I'm starting to feel a little depressed. I am very proud of Kirby, he is an upstanding young man and I know he is ready for a new chapter in his life and will do well wherever God leads him.

John 16:22 

So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.

Feeling a little down right now. We took Kirby (my son) off to college yesterday. Now we have no kids in the house. Life is changing!

I had no plan for running today, I just woke up early so I went out and took off. At the second turn I decide to run my old 10 mile route. I haven't run it in quite a while. When I got to the Smallville loop I decided to run that loop adding another 2 miles. If I were thinking about running today I guess I would say this was pretty good run with decent results.
