Creek and Back

Still too hot to run any more than a couple miles. It's 93 degrees outside this morning. Guess I'm getting close to getting some gym time. Don't mind the weights but I hate the treadmill. We'll see.

3 Miles in this hot Texas heat

It's only 80 degrees and I feel like I've ran 12 miles. I'm still on track for 2008's mileage as I try to work off this weight and get some miles in. Those days I'd put in about 10 miles a week and toward Sept I really started cranking out the mileage. I hope to be doing that a lot earlier as I have a half marathon in two weeks from today. That's going to hurt!

Back in Texas for 2.76

Jus the usual creek and back. First run back in Texas and wow is it tough. I have a half marathon in two weeks and I'm nowhere near ready for it. I plan on going out for a long run tomorrow. Perhaps I'll do a walk run for 12 miles on the greenbelt. If I can get through that then I should be ok for the Hottest Half.

Ran 7 yesterday. I posted a big blog but somehow it didn't get published to the site. This is my last run in Wisconsin until next visit. 16 miles for the week.

5k up the north trail

I had planned on 4 miles but I was cut short by a swarm of deer flies a mile and a half up the trail. It was a warm humid morning and apparently my sweet smell was bothersome. Not sure if anyone knows what a deer fly is but it's like a horse fly but smaller and a lot more aggressive. And they're always with several others. I didn't catch my first mile time but second was 8:19 and the third was an 8:17. As I finished it started to downpour.

Running in Amery- 6 miles

Back in Amery, Wisconsin for vacation. Kelley and I got out for an easy 6 miles. What was supposed to be an out and back 5 miles turned into a tour of the city which added an extra mile. Small town huh. Temps were a cool 69 during the start and the only issue was the deer fly attack.

Creek and Back 3.01 mi 00:29 09:36 pace

With Kelley starting her marathon training she asked me to go out for a morning run with her. It was nice to feel some cooler temps but kept it easy. This is my 5th day in a row. My right knee is a bit sore, so I'm looking forward to two cross country days.

Creek and Back 2.69 mi 00:23 08:32 pace

An easy couple miles in the 99F afternoon. It was supposed to be a Gym day but had a last minute change. Then again I only intended on getting two miles in but that too changed at the last minute. Either way, good stuff.

Too long

So as this site continues to stay lingering on the web I feel compelled to get back to posting, as I start to get serious about my running. Since my lat blog in oct I can't say I've been doing anything but short runs, along with eating and drinking merrily. My weight has escalated back to 200 and my running has suffered due to my poor choices. However, thanks to a great brother in law I'm fired up again. So, here we go. For the record I ran 2 on sat and 8 on Sunday. Today, Monday starts a new life.
