60 minutes of basketball this morning. Planning on some miles tonight after driver's ed. Two easy miles with Sunny.  I really didn't feel like running tonight, but managed two miles which I guess was better than nothing and it only took 20 minutes.

My 2 year old Jarren somehow got in bed with us during the night and around 5:50 this morning he managed to kick me out of bed so I went on an easy 4 mile run over to the Hurricane Cemetery and back.

60 minutes of basketball this morning, I really didn't feel that good, pretty tired and really struggled to keep moving. Hope to feel better this afternoon on my run. I'm still planning to run the half marathon tomorrow, even though I'm feeling a little run down. Just an easy 3 miles this afternoon, still feeling tired.

The big news first is the fact I passed my mileage total from last year (1926) and I still have a month and a half left in 2008.  So I'm happy about that, and I'm actually feeling a little more healthy at this point compared to how I felt at this same time last year.  Don't have the hip pain bothering me as much as last year.



The race started out good, but finished poorly. Looking back I probably should not have ran this race. I'm not in very good shape, and I've been feeling sick and run down the last few days. Actually, been having some strange tingling feelings in my hands and arms the last few days, kind of strange. Hope with some extra rest over the weekend I'll feel better.

Did 1.25 mile warm-up

No real time goals going in, just wanted to try to run faster than last year.

1-5:09 Fast first mile and I was in 13th place, just trying to stay relaxed

2-5:19 Another fast downhill mile, pass a few guys and move into 8th

3-6:03

5K split 17:15- nice!

4-6:52 Going uphill on the dirt trail, I really don't like this section

5-6:57 Another uphill mile

6-6:12 Make the turn around and then start running back down the trail, trying to dodge people going in the other direction, some people weren't paying attention at all.

My 10K Split was almost the exact same time as my 10K race last week.

7- 6:44 Hip starting to bother me

8-6:03 Better mile

9-6:24 I think it was about this mile, that things really started falling apart. Mainly mentally, I think I had been in 7th and two guys passed me.

10-6:36 Really not feeling too good

11-6:55 Struggling through Entrada

12-7:03

13-8:10 I actually stopped and walked a few times on this mile, I really didn't want to but I was starting to get dizzy and started feeling more numbness and tingling in my arms and hands. I think I was in 8th place up until this place, but then got passed by a few guys when I slowed down.

.1- 13

My Garmin had the distance measured at 13.03

Overall time was 1:24:45 (6:28 pace). Last year I ran 1:26:11. the course was just a little different but I don't think it was any harder, if anything I think this year's course might have been a bit slower.

I wasn't that pleased with my time, but considering the shape I'm in right now and feeling a little on the sick side I'll just be happy that I finished this race.

At this point, I'm a little burnt out on running, so probably no more races until the new year. I've been really busy with some other things right now, so I will continue to train when I can and when I feel like it. I do need to lose a few pounds, even though I didn't take a lot of time off after the marathon, I've sure put on the weight fast in the last month.
