There's just something wrong with logging miles like this as "Easy Miles". Even though they were slow they were not "Easy". I don't know what it is about this run (20 miles @ 8:26 pace) but it's been hard every time I've done it. It must be either too slow or two long, I'm not sure which :-)

I finished the run but was completly beat at the end. It took all day to recover, my legs felt like crap and I was completly worn out. My hams were really tight and aching after the run. Today my hams are good but my quads are sore. 

Target was 20 miles @ 8:26 pace.

Matthew 7:13-14

13-14 “Don’t look for shortcuts to God. The market is flooded with surefire, easygoing formulas for a successful life that can be practiced in your spare time. Don’t fall for that stuff, even though crowds of people do. The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires total attention.

There's no shortcut to marathon success!

Sore quads, sore toe but I got it done! The first mile I felt good (energy wise) but about halfway into the second mile I started to doubt myself and started to labor. Not happy with the inconsistant times but happy I didn't quit.

I don't really know what to call this run since it's not part of my RLRF training program. Since I've not been able to get and cross-training in I just decided to RUN! No pace, no plan, no heart monitor, just run what felt good. I ran the flats medium, the down slopes faster and the hills slow (I guess that was the plan :-). My legs were a little sore but actually better than yesterday. Tomorrow I will run a Temp run, then have a couple of days off. I'm not sure what my running schedule will be for the next 10 days as I am leaving for The World Series Team Roping finals in Las Vegas on Thursday. It may all be treadmill runs for those days.

Matthew 28:19-20

19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Tempo run today. I was a little fatigued and it showed in the overall run. The third mile is mostly uphill and and you can see the effects of the fatigue in the pace. I think a couple of rest days are in order.

16.5 @ 8:11 Avg. on the treadmill in Las Vegas. $15.00 to get into the gym. They really don't want you in there! Lots of really nice equipment but no one there :-(

This run was good until about mile 17 when I started to get light headed and my hands began to tingle. Didn't have anything but water but may not have drank enough or maybe it was the Altitude?
