Well, I have not updated this blog in a while.  Pretty much just running 3 or so times a week.  Trying to get the motivation...

triathlon on saturday

Well, my first triathlon is on saturday. i have already learned a few lessons, the first is create a plan. I didn't schedule out my workouts and have definately slacked off the last 2 weeks. I'm confident i will do well, but I could have trained better.

Well, I'm thinking about doing a triathlon.  I did my first swim tonight.  I lost count, but I think I did 40 laps in about 30 minutes.  It was a good, but tiring workout.

I also did the run for the Zoo 2 weeks ago.  I ran the 10k in 1:02:07.  Not to bad, it gives me a baseline for the future 10k, yet to be determined.

I missed a couple of runs.  March 10th I did 2.6 miles in 32 minutes and March 14th I did 2.1 miles in 24 minutes

I also ran today.  It was an evening run while Sara watched the kids.  I did an extra long warm up because I was trying to get Pandora (which stopped playing after 2 songs) on my Nexus One.  I ran 2.6 miles in roughly 32 minutes.  Cardiotrainer stopped recording on my run, and I don't have my Garmin 301 available.  I'll get better times soon.  It was sunny and warm, low 50's when I went running.  Run went pretty well, I worked on my speed a little.  I need to sign up for a run tomorrow.

Forgotten Run

Forgot to post my run on Wednesday.  I ran 3.28 miles in 38:31.  That puts my average pace at 11:56/mile.   Not to good.  I had some pain in my right knee around 2 miles and had to walk/run for the last mile or so.  Going skiing tomorrow so I won't get a run in this weekend.  I will have to get out on Monday!

GI Distress

Well, I went for a 1.87 mile run.walk.  Some GI Distress at .88 miles limited how much running I could do after that.  I also tried my new Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9's.  They felt much better than my old and worn out GTS 8's

The run was in the afternoon so it was a warm 50 degrees with slight could cover.  My asthma was also bothering me a little bit, but I forgot to take my inhaler before the run.  Hopefully I can get a run in tomorrow.

All Alone

Family wasn't feeling well this morning so I ended up running by myself this afternoon.  I ran 4.1 miles in 46:50.  That is a pace of 11:27.  I planned to tak it a little slower since I was doing a little longer run that usual.  The weather was a pleasant 45 degrees and very sunny.

Overall, I felt real good, just a little tired at the end.  We'll see if I can get out tomorrow.

Ran 2.03 miles this morning. It was 33 degrees and sunny. My time was 21:35, pace 10:48.

I tried to push myself a little more since I was going for a short run. Overall, I felt pretty good. Tomorrow, Sara and I are going to do a run with the kids.

Sunday Run

Ran with the wife and kids this morning. Cloudy and threatened rain, but we were dry for the whole thing. Weather in the mid 40's. My left foot had bothered me since the last run, but it felt good today and still feels fine. I ran 2.81 miles in 30:59. I seem to be getting quicker, if I was more consistent, the improvements would be better. I need to start looking on for some races.

Ran 2.83 miles in 31:45 pushing the stroller. Basically the same route that I ran on Saturday. I ran in the afternoon so it was much warmer (46deg.) and sunny. Feel pretty good after the run, but the stroller seems to work the thighs a little more than running without.

If anyone is actually reading my blog, checkout Jill is a former classmate of mine from the Exercise Science program at UNM.

Got to get out there more!

Where do I start...

Yesterday was the first day for a change. I went for a run with my 2 kids in the jogging stoller. I went about 2.7 miles, I don't know for sure since my stupid G1 with gps froze mid run and lost the track. I'll have to run the same section to get an official count
