Got up way late and only had time for a under 40 minute run.  I did the last two miles of the five at a 6:40 and 6:41 pace.

 I should have ran longer because of all the junk food I've eat over the weekend.  I haven't been eating like my normal healthy self for a bit ant my weight is up over 146 the highest its been in 3 years.  My belly losing some of its muscle as well.  Oh well kids priorities and work have taken my focus away from running so much lately.   I still will try and run 50 miles a week when I can.  My titanium leg still limits the amount of running.  50 miles really isn't that much compared to before.

7 miles slower with Barry this morning at a 7:42 pace.  My ankle was bothering me a bit and Barry's sciatic nerve was giving him some discomfort but not a lot.

 Can't wait till my new Brooks Launch shoes get here.  I've been running day to day on lighter shoes, Saucony Kinvara, Asics Speedstar 5's, Asics Bandito's, and my favorite shoe which you can't buy so I save them.... Asics Ohana Racers.   

I really needed a little bit heavier shoe for cushion and the Brooks Launch will give me that.

Yahoo! no security patches or systems to work on tonight at 11pm.  Last week 20 hour day was enough.

Had a killer headache yesterday so I slept in a little longer than I wanted to this morning.  I wanted to run at least an hour but do to the medication the night before I just didn't get motivated enough to get ready.  (28 degrees)

 Although,  I ran 7.53 miles in a 7:14 pace in 54 minutes.  I ran up East Alameda Rd.  down Jefferson Rd.  and over to Garrett Way.  Did the last two miles at a 6:57 pace. 

I really haven't tried to bust out a faster tempo run lately because the body just doesn't feel like it anymore.   When you have a serious accident I think the soreness tends to stay with you even though you think your totally healed.

 My  goal would be to do about 4 miles at a 5:55 threshold pace and back off with two at 6:20.  I'm just not there yet.  

Even though I don't have a planned race this year, consistent running is more important and I consider that my racing.  It's always good to try and have a goal while your running for fitness just for something to achieve and make your fitness fun and agonizing.

Ran on my new pair of Brooks Launch for 8 miles at an overall 7:10 pace in 57:18 minutes.  Ran out on Highway 30 then behind Home Depot on Hawthorne Rd. then back down Poline Rd.  and back home.  Last two miles at 6:52 and 6:55.

Still had some soreness in the tendon on the side of the foot, and my hip was a little sore as well.  Time just doesn't allow me to run any higher mileage like I used to.

Left later today and didn't run what I wanted because I was watching a video from Facebook where a dad shot his daughters laptop for posting things that were disrespectful to the dad and the mom.  The daughter block the parents from facebook thinking they wouldn't see the post.  Problem!  her dad is an IT systems guy and we can get into anything. 

Anyway,  she posted how horror it was that she had to clean her own room and do chores around the house, and a lot more nasty things to her parents.  I would put the web link here but it's got bad language and I don't want to offend anyone.  But with the language if you block it out it's a good lesson.

Ran 7.3 miles today at an overall 7:05 pace in 52 minutes.  I did the last two in the 6 minute range again.  Lots of snow coming down while I was running.

Kind of sore waking up today. My tendon on the side of the foot is a little bothersome when I first woke up. My hip area was a little sore on my rod leg right where my surgery incision is. What's up with that!! Ran up by the fairgrounds and on Olympus Rd. and most of it was uphill with downhill portions.

I'm really surprise with me times considering how tired I was and sore. The tendon is sore when turning on the downhill. I hope this isn't a injury coming that I'm thinking in the back of my mind. I've had this hurt before and knock me out for two weeks to a month before.
