OK, i get it.

life, work, running got in the way of posting again.

Those of you interested, you may like to hear that i have had a exciting week of training.

let's go back in time to a week from today.

Last Tuesday, my fastest 9 miles ever. 9 miles/time.....1:10:29 pace is a nice 7:50/mile....best part was the slowest mile was my first. A wonderful afternoon run with a cool fast time and a negative split.

Thursday, a not as fast 8 miles. Not even an attempt to go fast, just nice and steady. Honestly, i think i still felt the affects of the earlier 9 miles. Still, a fun run for the day....time 1:08:08....a slow 8:27 pace....and really it felt slow, weird eh?

Saturday....with renewed energy about not caring about pace, or time, but just the distance...Saturday was a slow 16 miles....lot's of walk breaks and a full 2 liter camel-pak sooo....2:23:22 for a 8:58 pace.....

Monday....back to a little speed....start slow and try to make every mile a little quicker....9 miles....started at a nice 8:29 mile and ended with a quick 7:46 mile; total time....1:13:48.....big negative split here....over a minute diference as my last two miles were the quickest in the run.

There is a week in my runs....7 days, 4 runs....distance 42 miles....

Weight...still at the 200 lb area.....maybe i'm more of a camel myself, carrying my reserves as i go, and not so much a horse.

Anyway, fun guv wants the computer now so maybe i'll get a chance again in the next week to post again.

Thanks for reading

Logging some great runs. I think you'll be in fine shape to run/walk/stroll with me to the finish of Bayshore.

Holy smokes you are getting fast. And at 200 lbs.....if you wanted to drop a few I would imagine you would start really flying. :) Great running!

Hey I face the same problem too! It's really irritating. When it gets real bad, what I do is just run a computer check up. That usually does the trick in solving all these issues. You might want to give it a try too, i believe its free at http://www.pcaholic.com.

You are rockin' some great runs! At the very least, you'll PR Bayshore. From there, who knows??
