early am runs by myself.  ryan needed the day off.  After studying our runs from the past few weeks, I wanted to concentrate on even splits.  This way maybe I could stay away from the 10 and 11 minute per mile paces.  Since I'm still 21 pounds above my target running weight and in the building phase I picked 9:09 mpm (4 hour marathon pace).  this is also 3/4 a 3 hour marathon pace.  I ran two legs this morning; an 11 mile and a 4.25 leg.

 

9:07, 9:06, 9:09, 9:08, 9:07,  9:08, 9:09, 9:07, 9:58, 10:00, 10:15 for an overall 1:43:21

I went home and had breakfast (2cups of strawberries, 3 pancakes with sugar free syrup, a bagel with light cream cheese and a cup of coffee, 16 oz water), got the kids ready for school and then went out for the second leg

8:40, 8:54, 8:45, 9:03, 2:19 (for 0.25 miles) for an overall 37:43

4:30 am run by myself.  freezing rain and 32/33 degrees.  Kind of tricky footing.  We had a mix bag of precip. last night.  I was hoping that school would be cancelled so Heidi would not have to go to work.  2 hour delay, so she had to go in at her normal time (6am) so I only got 5 miles in.  I did not run yesterday to prepare taxes.  A couple of bum days will turn a 70 mile week into a 50 mile week.

9:39, 10:17, 10:06, 10:12, 9:53 for 50:10 overall

I went back out after Heidi got home.  Her afternoon cpr class was cancelled giving me a little additional time.  9.5 miles by myself, but temps in the upper 30's, so I ditched the coat and long pants.

8:30, 8:30, 8:28, 8:29, 8:30, 8:20, 8:37, 8:34, 9:43, 4:48 (for 0.5) for 1:22:34 overall

am run by myself.  29 degrees. 7.25 miles.  My Garmin died on me a tenth of a mile in, so I just ran the very familiar high school block. I don't know my splits for this morning, but right at 70 minutes according to the clock tower.

28 degrees and sunny.  Run with Ryan.  This is his longest to date.  Nice run just to visit and chat.  It has been a full weekend for my wife and I.  We have wanted to move out of the house we have been in for many years.  However, not sure where we want to go.  If we were going to stay in this town or move on.  Anyhow, we started looking at houses.  Went through a few last weekend and three more friday.  We found one we really like that had only been on the market for 6 days.  We made an offer on Saturday.  Two more offers went in after ours that same day.  We were encouraged to change our original offer and firm it up a bit, so we did.  After a full day of paperwork, phone calls, and banking yesterday, we found ourself in a 'highest and best offer' situation today even though our offer was $1,600 higher than the asking price straight up with no consessions.  I felt like this was the highest stakes poker game that I have ever played. 

 

Nedless to say, a long slow run with Ryan was nice.
