we had an hour in between the kids soccer games so guess what I decided to spend it  running and have extra time to Moe the lawn and hangout with the kids later so 5 easy miles before the last game then came home mowed the lawn and ran 2 easy and the last was marathon pace to make 8 miles for the day. I'm starving but not tired for some reason.

Today was a fun running day. I ran 4 miles in between my childrens soccer practices. I found a new route by a running creek. It was along a path and was very nice. Then I came home and ran another 4 miles with my new running partner Nathan. Like I said, it was a fun running day.

I ran the first 5miles with Beth and Nathan and my dogs then Beth took the dogs home.  I finished the run with hard 3 miles to make 8 for the day. I like running with a group of people its just hard to get everyone together. I feel a little bounce on my feet from the consistent running during the last few months. I'm fighting the urge to do any speed work until I get to 10 miles a day of easy running.

first 4 miles easy and then 4 miles Marathon pace I was not planing to run tha pace but the body was calling for it it felt good plus 55 deg, no wind, and the fact I was running late for Layla soocer tourniment helped alot. Tomorrow is 3 weeks since my daily mileage increase. I will go up to 9 miles per day for the next 3 weeks and hope the body will handle it without any isues other wise I have to drop the mileage back to 8 a day.

I ran the firtst 5 miles solo and then met with Nathan to run another 4 miles. The nighbors were shouting at Nathan don't run with this guy he is going to kill you lol. I need to find a new route soon. I love it but a lot days I spend most of the run talking and answering how far are you running and when is your next race.
