My wife was going out to do a long run since the weather was less than perfect the day before. She managed to put in 12 miles!! By far her longest run…she’s definitely ready for a half marathon!!

I just put in an easy 2.01 miles in 17:48

Got to running early and ran a bit extra with the ladies this morning. We met up with the rest of the group at 7 am and did about 5 more miles. The wind was really whipping and was not the best day to be outside but I ended the day with 10.37 miles in 1:40:21 or 9:40 pace.

With today being my birthday my wife mentioned that I might want to run in the morning since we were going out to dinner that night. Got up and ran 1.01 miles in 9:10

With the wife working out with her trainer I thought that I had better put in a few extra miles…I was delayed when my stepfather dropped by with his Harley…I ended up running 2.03 miles in 17:26

I was unable to run between work and trap shooting but thought that since I was coming home early…none of the guys showed up to trap…I would run my mile with my wife. We did pretty well…1.01 miles in 8:23.

I was feeling pretty good and decided that I’d run a bit farther and try to put in a little fartlek…3.51 miles in 31:37 for a 9:00 pace!

After a long day on the road I decided that I only wanted to do the loop and let my wife go for a longer run…she put in 4.6…I only did 1 mile in 8:39

We ran in a very nice park yesterday and thought that it would be a great idea to go back to it and run today. I thought that I’d run farther today but I just couldn’t managed to do it. 1.55 miles in 13:59

Since my wife and I are in St Louis and we have a family event on Saturday we decided that it would be best to do the long run today. The weather was decent…50’s and a bit rainy but the wind was pretty bad. We did a pretty good job. I managed to put in 10.00 miles at a 9:58 pace.

Since we knew that we would be driving most of the night and the chances of us getting a run in once we get to the hotel are slim we got up early and hit the neighborhood loop. I still think my wife's gps is wrong...we did just over 1 mile at an 8:27 pace...she thinks we did it in an 8:11 pace.

With the nice weather my wife decided to forgo going to the gym and came home to run with me after work. 1 mile in 8:44

Monday, April 14, 2008

Knew the wife wasn’t going to be right home after work and with the weather in the upper 40’s I thought it would be nice to do a little longer run. The total time I was gone was much greater than my run time since I got stopped by a train and had to wait a really long time (5 minutes) and finally just turned around and ran the other direction! 3.10 miles in 27:05

I was just lazy today…not really but after a day of running around (brunch and museum) and a really good nap I felt lazy and ended up not running until much later than I should have. But I did well none the less…1.00 mile in 8:56

Up early so that I could do 20…rainy (which I like) but only about 40 (which I am not such a big fan of!!) Met the girls and they kept me at a great pace for the first 7 miles then they all needed the restroom. I continued on and found my self stepping in more puddles than I ever intended!

The rain kept a large group from the run this week so we ended the day at Caribou Coffee.

I got in 18.08 miles in 3:13:42 not bad considering I ran a marathon 2 weeks ago and the conditions were less than ideal this morning!

Back home…so happy to be here! Ran around the neighborhood…it seems so small compared to running on a big busy highway in Calhoun! 1.00 mile in 8:38

After a really good dinner in Cartersville I still needed to run but I did not want to. Talked to my wife for a while but the reality of time started to sink in…it was getting late and I needed to run. I managed to put down 1.01 miles in 9:11.

Back in the state of Georgia and back to work…another long day but the run has to get done…the park down the road has a .35 mile loop around the pond…why didn’t I see this earlier in my stay here!! 2.25 miles in 20:48

Up early and was going to try to do 11-12 but it just was not happening today since I had a meeting in Walworth county at 9:00 a.m. Enjoyed running this morning to work out some of the kinks and managed to put in 7.30 miles in 1:08:27…not too fast but defiantly not slow either!!

How I managed to actually get up early and go out running is a miracle by itself but I thought that we might be having a late night tonight so I knew that it needed to be done. Easy 1.01 miles in 9:20.

It is such a nice day here in Georgia that I decided to go for a run. I managed to get in 1.01 miles at a 9:14 pace.

Got up this morning a little early and decided that I should really put my run in since there looks to be a storm front moving in and I might get rained on this evening. 1.01 miles in 9:30 pace.
