Today felt really pretty good. The first mile or so my right shin bugged just a bit, but then it felt a bit better. I really wanted to try to go a bit faster especially since I was so slow running trails on Saturday. Just ran in the neighborhood. I was passed on Pleasant View drive by some young kid that was all lungs and legs... man it is amazing to see some one run so fast so effortlessly, or at least it looked that way to me. As I was coming up 1000 back to Pleasant View drive I seen a runner quite a was up, but as I was running I could tell I was gaining on her. So I made the goal to beat her to the top. Well she crested right before me so goal was then to pass her by the school crossing sign... I did :) I think that was the fastest I have run 1000 north street. Any way pretty good day. I need to clean up the whole family is coming over for a BBQ!!

Today I was off work and baby sat my youngest grand son... It was so much fun just grandma time with no one else to bother us :) So I was home earlier than when I work so I went for my run. It was a bit warm but luckily for me there was a pretty hefty wind that kept me feeling a bit cooler then I would have. A young girl came running out of the parking lot in front of me, so I tried to stay with her for the run, she kept looking back at me I guess to see if I was still there, and right as I was gaining on her pretty good she stopped, then turned around to run the back. I gave her a high five and continued to my turn around point. I didn't see her after I turned back.

I will probably run tomorrow then take Thursday off because I will be babysitting the grandson again, but for the entire day.

Oh I have a question... my garmin was taking a long time to switch to the regular screen, the locating satalight bar was all the way finished but it wouldn't switch. so after about 2 minutes a just pushed the mode button and it switched. I reset it and started my run, but my times were faster then I anticipated them to be, could I have made it read my pace wrong? Just wonding if that is possible.

Tonight I needed a change of pace. They have been working on the lower parts of the river parkway, and I had seen they have paved part by my work so I decided to see how they were coming. The first 3/4 a mile are on the gravel road next to the railroad tracks. This set of tracks are not used so it is not dangerous to run there. Just kind of a pain with the uneven ground and stuff. So after the steep drop from the railroad track there is a small wooded area. They have graded the ground getting it ready to pave so it was fun to run. The underpass of 31st street is cement then they paved all the way (3/4 mile) to the other set of tracks. These tracks are used by Union Pacific and Frontrunner, there are signs to not trespass but I climbed up then hurried across, then a bit more and you cross the bridge into Fort Buenaventura. This is a fun place to run, nice a wooded and green, there is a pretty pond/lake by the fort and there was even a few teepees set up. I even had a close incounter with a racoon LOL. 

Legs felt pretty heavy and stiff. Right hip and shin were a bit buggy. But I took it slower and enjoyed the run for the most part of it.

Didn't sleep well last night, but other then that a pretty good day. So happy that it is Friday. 

Just ran an easy 4 or so... kept it at about a 9:30 pace. Felt pretty good. It's really starting to get warm now... so I need to get my butt out of bed and run before work!! But I can't sleep without all my kids home. When youngest son was up at the University it never bothered me, guess I figured it was out of my control. But now that he is back home for a bit I can't sleep without him home... I think I will just have to get used to this. LOL

Planning on running the shoreline trail with my running friend tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend bloggers :)
