After my LR on Saturday I was completly beat the whole day. Yesterday, Sunday, I still didn't feel very good. I really think I had a little heat stroke (or close to it) on that run.

Today I was just going to try and make it through 10 miles and had an out for just 6.5 if I didn't feel good. My body was just a little achy when I started but I was actually supprised how good I felt. After the third mile (which has a pretty good hill) I dediced to actually make a run out of this. The results turned out pretty good with about half of my miles coming in at my MGP.

Psalm 118:6-9 

The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? The Lord is on my side as my helper; I shall look in triumph on those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.

1 Corinthians 13:12

We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

Another 10 miles with a little different twist. I was a little disappointed my slow miles were so slow but my fast miles felt pretty good. I just kinda made up this workout as I went out this morning. I thought about a 5-6 mile tempo run but just for a second and then backed out.

BIG DAY.... REGISTERED FOR BOSTON 2014 ... !!!


I'm not really sure what I'm doing right now so I just decided to run 10 mile each day this week. A few miles were fast, a few were slow but most were about MP+15-25 seconds. I'm not even sure if this is good training, I'm just figuring it's base building. Hopefully I can get out of the rut and start some real training soon.

The dew point was down so it actually felt a little better today. I actaully thought I could feel a little cool breeze at times. :-)
