Sun 3.14

The week of running was pretty good.  Nice Tuesday night social run.  Short 5 mile run on Wed.  Another good social run Thur night.  Then the St. Pats run downtown on Saturday with some extra before and after.  Then.....
Sunday! CRAP!  Major pain in my knee!!!  Should have stopped running, or skipped it all together... but no, not me!  Serious pain, had to walk a ton.  Pain still just walking or bending it all day and on Monday.  This sucks!
Headed up to Fleet Feet to talk about the new shoes.  Going back to the old ones for a bit... when I can run again.  Hopefully rest until Thursday.... we'll see.

Sun 3/7

Nice day for a trail run.  Quiver River Park, 6 mile run.  Great trail, nice pace, fun hills.  Need to do these more often.  Not sure how the pace off-road correlates to on road pace... need to research.

Thur 3/4

Chesterfield social run.  Led it with another guy.... and we were flying (atleast by my standards.)  7 min pace, and felt great!

Wed 3/3

Mid week mid-long run.  8 miles, loop and back through town.  Good route, good pace, good day... overall good run.  Tried to run slow pace at beginning and end, and faster pace in the middle, but didn't exactly work.

St Peters social run, first time.... Hilly course. Tried to keep up with the studs, felt like pace was too much. Only 7:30 pace... Damn.

Sun 2/28

Decided to give the knee and feet a break, did a little cycling.  23 mile ride, comfy pace (16-17 mph).  Felt good, but wish we had pushed harder....doh!

Sat 2/27 long run

Long run, 17 miles, in St. Charles.  1 mile warmup, left foot hurt for whole run, but knee strap seemed to help.  Feet were hurtin way before the legs were.  Liked seeing the sun, and last part felt warmer!  Enjoyed the run around Fountain Lakes, good change from the streets.

Thur 2/25

Great run tonight.  5 miles at Fleet Feet Chesterfield.  Tried a pair of New Balance 1064... great shoe, like the gel cushion in the forefoot.  Good pace, mild knee pain, cold wind.  Overall, felt great.  Picked up a patella strap.

Wed 2/24

7 miles (1 short of plan).  Freezing cold and strong winds, even with the sun out.  Pressed for time, but kept a slow pace.  Knee was hurting through most of the run.  Stomach pains for last half.  Glad thats over!

Tuesday 2/23

4 mile route through town.  Just felt crappy and sluggish.  Sun was out, but air was very cold, temps around 29.  Really overdressed with the heavy pullover and tights with warm-ups... really felt exhausted at the end.  Hopefully the ear pain I had is not a precursor to sickness!

Monday 2/22

Cross training day... not very energetic.  Walked around with ankle weights.  Wyatt's school skating night... skated a bit, but cheap rentals destroyed my feet!

Sunday 2/21

Supposed to do 7 miles today, but weather is crappy and wet.  Headed to Rec Plex.... blah indoor running.  Did 5 miles on the track, then took a break and came back to do another mile with Wyatt.  Then swam 600.  Then headed to Olive Garden!!

Sat 2/20

So... half way through marathon training, and just making my first post.

Ran the St. Charles course this morning, plus a mile. Led the way out, felt great. Really pushed the pace on the way back... or at least it felt like it! Damn near sprinting to the finish... what was I thinking, it's not a race! Anyway, 11 miles done.
