running (Bagfartlet ) 58:51 [3] 5.2 mi (11:19 / mi)
shoes: New Balance 460

Another super nice day...touch of cool in the air and a light NW breeze that I was not expecting when I turned west at 2.7 but it was not bad compared to past few weeks.

I surged 10 to 30 yards with trotting and walking between. Did the surges for 3 miles. Walked 50 yards or so up until 3.8 miles then last 1.7 trotted in. At first my surges were not really surges but gradually I could feel a little push off with my feet...I've gotten so slow that sometimes when I've wanted to stride out or sure for just a few step when I send my legs the signal to 'go!' nothing happens. It's a weird feeling.

So I continue to train on making progress at a ultra slow pace but progress is progress. I'm having to work on everything. Endurance, speed, form, body toning and preventative exercises. Little by little.

10 AM

Walk (misty off on cooler) 1:15:30 [3] 4.6 mi (16:25 / mi)
shoes: Enhance Waterpruf Trainer

I'm not sure why so slow today...last mile needed to pee so I was really going fast :) but barely under 16:30. 16 is the standard now.

No biking. I ride only to help knees and I see no signs this is working and in fact more minor aches, etc. Running more too of course.

9 AM

running (YMCA Trail) 1:21:38 [3] 8.4 mi (9:43 / mi)
shoes: Hoka Clifton 2

Today I became convinced the 'big loop' may actually be 2.8 like the website says. They have posts every quarter of a mile but the problem is they are not coordinated. They appear to have started in both directions which is not a big deal if the trail is 2.75...every .25 there is a post...the problem is on the backside there is one place where 2 of the posts are not quarter mile apart...AND at the beginning if I start at first post by the YMCA buildings it seems to be a bit more than quarter mile according to the splits...on first lap I had settled into a 9:45 or so pace as being pulled along by some young filly that passed me about a 1.25 of the first loop...but then the first 'quarter' split was 30 seconds off this pace then the rest of the splits were back on pace.

It's not a big deal but I either ran about 8.25 (3x 2.75) or 8.4 (3 x 2.8). I'm giving in (without changing my old log entries at least for now).

This was a big mental battle. I was a little psyched out early in the first loop thinking about doing 2 more. I had times when I felt ok then I would sag again...I felt a knot in my stomach with about half of the last loop left...I backed off and just coasted in.

Splits were 27:30; 27:00 and 27:08

Sunday Apr 22 #

6 AM

running long (mental & physical ) 1:40:15 [3] 9.0 mi (11:08 / mi)
shoes: New Balance 880 WB 4

Another slow start. 13:10 1M and 25:10 or so at 2m. At 4.5 about 53:45. 2nd half was 46:30. Managed a 9:15 last mile somehow. Really discouraged first 1/3 of the way...but when you are going so slow you barely have to speed up to really drop your mile splits and overall average. Got going at 3.5 and mentally felt better at 5 but about 6.5 turned into mild wind for 2 miles and I was a little weak mentally for next half mile as it was up slight incline.

Early on I was really daunted by the 9 mile goal, but I was last week in the brutal cold wind...today mild and ran in my tights. Rarely do these days. Either I feel need for pants or its warm enough for shorts.
