Day 1

Just a few miles today and a nice strong pace. Today I'm starting over with my training. Going back to an actual schedule rather than running whatever I feel like it. Happy Halloween

Its cold again...

Temps were around 38 this morning for this morning's run. Trying to shake out the memory of the ballgame last night. Cold weather brought on a few aches that I didn't have a few weeks ago when it was a 100 outside. Knees, hip and ankles were really tight.

Starting over...slowly

Just a nice easy run after work this afternoon. Weather was nice, got out a little later due to having a power nap after I got home. A lot more traffic in the neighborhood then I care to handle.

A tough 5

Ankles still a bit sore but ran through it. It's supposedly the last hot day this year, topping out at 90. A good 5 even though I felt sluggish. I did convince myself to cut my 5 miler short but ended up changing my mind and finish what I started. Here's to cooler weather.

The Tyler Rose

I've been thinking since I've finished the Half Marathon in Tyler which was worse...this one or Nashville Rock N Roll. Still not sure, the hills were absolutely brutal today. Not to mention coming off a long Summer of poor milage and a bunch of injuries. In the end, I'm glad I did it. I finished the Mellew 4 Seasons Challenge today. Glad that one is behind me. Great job to all those who got out and ran today.

Went to the doctors on Thursday and got a cortisone shot for my ankles. They're both a little tender but I"m hopeful they'll pull through for tomorrow's Half Marathon in Tyler. Kelley and I just finished getting packed, we're listening to the Rangers game, game 1 vs Detroit for the ALCS. she's doing the packing and I"m listening to the game. It's 8pm now and we have to be up at 3:15. It's suppose to take us 2.5 hours to get there.

Ankle Pains

battling through what I believe is tendonitis. Hurts like hell to walk on, however it felt good out on a little job. Not sure what's going on. I only ran today to see how I would feel this Sunday during the Half. Seems like I will be ok.

8 MIles - Cool Temps

Not a bad 8 miles this morning. Ran the north section of the 380 greenbelt and only came across one snake and 4 deer. Good to see a few runners out there on that side of the belt. Ended up pushing the last mile, felt too good to hold back. Next week is the Tyler Rose Half Marathon. Time to take it easy. Temps were in the low to mid 60's.
