39:57 Minute Run

Upping my most recent time by more than 10 minutes, I put in 39:57 tonight. It was dark and cool enabling me to accomplish this with relative east. Most of my nagging injuries have fallen to the wayside and I am looking foward to getting to a point where my muscles loosen up a bit more quickly after my runs. Indoor soccer tomorrow, so next run will be Weds or Thurs depending on the level of abuse tomorrow.

3 mile Saturday

My Nike iTunes is dead, so it's time to cough up another $30 to get my runs officially logged. I put in an easy 22 minute run on Saturday. I was feeling pretty tight (and lazy) but wanted to get something in. Followed that up with a quick ab and bicep workout at the gym.

3.5 - 4 miles, 30 minutes-ish

My Nike+ Itunes chip seems to be dying. I set it up for a 5k, but after 2 miles, my system thought I was only at 1.28 kilometers. I ended up running about 30 minutes (don't have my iPod on me and can't rememember exact time). I did my normal 5 k route but added a run through red bug park. My legs felt heavy and were knotting (shins, calves, quads), and I had to walk a couple of 20 yard stretches. Had Indoor Tuesday night...calves cramped up there as well. Played well, but only scored once in the short end a 13-6 ass whipping.

another run..and it hasnt been almost 3 months

I felt decent...better towards the end of my (exactly 3 miles) run today. My time was exactly 3 miles in 26:27, at 8:48. Proud to be running again.

Back in the saddle (again!)

Well, its been a while. Between work, soccer and life I let running get away from me this summer. I am determined to build back to a 8-10 mile level through the fall and into the winter. I did 3 miles Friday. I felt good during the run, but I honestly have to say that I was sore for 3 or 3 days. Still, glad to be back at it.
