Ran down in Disneyland, the plan was to do treadmill running thurs. and fri. but the hotel did not have a workout room and walking around Disneyland was tiring enough.  So I just ran sat. morning around Disneyland was so beautiful and perfect temps. 

We left wed. morning around 4 am and my son threw up the hole way down it took us 13 hours to drive compared to the 10 hour driving back.  We had a fun time, spent 2 days in disneyland and 1 day at the beach.

Ran on the trail today with Cheryl had a good run execept I twisted my right ankle ( something i so quite often and is frustrating, it feels alittle tender and feels like the bones are out but I think it will be alright.  I will see if my husband can pull it back in and if not I'll go get it put back in by a chriropractor, something I also have had to do in the past.)  Was a low pace because it was a lot of up hill and then I couldn't run fast on the down hill because my ankle was tender.  1:10:01

Woke up this morning with my ankle pretty sore so I did not run, and my week was going so well.  Grrrrrrr.  But I have been through this before and I'll make it through again.  I usually can run pretty easliy through a sprain but this time I am going to a sprots chriropacator to get it put back in place and teach me how to streangthen it because I just can't stay off the trails.

Weights upper/ lower- abs/back

Was able to go out this evening and run alittle ankle felt fine after a half mile, just ran easy.  Strange going out at night have not done that in a while.

Ran an out and back from my house down to the jogging path and back.   I want to go run a 5k today but my left hamstring was feeling tight so I didn't.  Plus my main goal right now is to build my milage.  My goals for the week was to run an 8 miler and hit at least 25 miles,  I got the 8 and I hit 30 miles (half way to 60).  My leg feel pretty good after my week, hamstring alittle tight but nothing to worry about.  Ankle felt fine also.

Next week I think I will go for a 10 mile long run and 30-35 miles total.

Light rain today it always seems like it rains the week after St. George Marathon.

Went to the rec center early and did 40 mins on the spin bike - climbing workout then swam 14 laps

Later I took my son in the jogger,  starting out I felt like I was pushing 100 pounds up a steep hill with the brakes on, man I was tired.  But I felt better once I warmed up.  Felt great runnning down the canyon.

Ran with Cheryl and Debbie,  we went from Cheryls house and got on the canal and went out and back.  When we started out the weather looked threatening but not bad, after about 5 mins. it was hailing so hard I have bruises on my legs from it.  Then it started thundering  and raining, then the wind and the mud, the back of my legs were covered.  Oh my goodness!  But all in all it was a good run.

Ran from Wills up the path to 2.5 (24 and change) and back (19 and change) I like to see how much faster I can run down the path then up.  Had Gauge in the jogger.  Started at a 9:47 pace and ended with a 7:38.  Good run.

Went to the rec center and ran 2 miles on the treadmill.  Did this so I can start getting use to running 6 days but didn't want to do to much because I want to run 10 miles and I don't want to many miles.  Then did 30 mins on the elliptical.

Had a great run this morning, meet up with Michelle and Tom and some other from SF.  We ran in the SF river bottoms,  alot of the 1/2 marathon course.  Felt great, pace didn't feel to bad once I got warmed up.  Was able to hold coversations,  I probably talked way to much.  But it was great to run with people.  Truley enjoyed myself.

Ran 6 days this week.  Next week I think I'll go for 40-45 miles depending on how I feel.  My body seemed to handle this week just fine.

Got up and ran the Temple loop (same as the country club loop but I cut up as the country club and go up around the temple) by myself.  Felt good this morning, had alot of my miles below 8's  and ran the uphills strong.  Had to book it home because I went longer than planned.

Went to the rec center this morning and did 35 mins. on the spin bike-climbing repeats then swam 12 laps.  Almost fell back to sleep this morning, I usually get right out of bed but I sat there not wanting to get out, but I did. Right distal vasitis medialis is sore (the quad on the inside right above the knee) I think it is from wearing a foot strike corection thing-a-mujig on my run for to long yesterday.  But I worked it out and think it will be fine.

Will probably take my son out later in the jogger.

Took my son out in the jogger for an easy run.  Was a little tired, it's hard to push the jogger after swimming.

Well I'm feel pretty frustrated, and beat up (I had a really deep massage last night, alot of myofacial release stuff.  It hurt super bad) My right inside knee felt twingy yesterday, from wearing my gait correction strap to long.  I'm pretty sure I'll be OK but never the less I am forcing myself to not run today.  This is something I have to fight myself to do, I find this funny because most people have to fight themselves to exersise.  But I REALLY don't want another injury.  So I will just do some crosstraining later.  Good day!

Went to the rec center and did 45 mins on the elliptical and 25 min on the spin bike.  Knee does feel better.

Did the country club loop this morning, Oh man my horses where on strike this morning.  But my knee felt fine just a little bit of muscle soreness left.  I think I will hang out around 40-45 miles a week until my body and joints get use to this and then I will progress to more.  Had a hard time waking up but I did not want to push the jogger today so I did, my arms are tired from painting ceilings yesterday.  Hope for a better day tomorrow.

I decided after alot of debate with myself to take the day off running and just crossed trained.  My knees are both alittle bit sore on the insides, this make me nervous because I got this thing called Planker band syndrome last year right before the marathon (basicley the sanovial sheath that surrounds the knee was inflammed) and I don't want this again.  But I think it is just from wearing that gait correction strap and then I have been agressively scraping them.

Did 25 mins. on the spin bike and 30 mins. on the elliptical.

Sometimes I wonder if I will ever get out of this patteren, I think I am building slowely enough that it shouldn't be a problem.  And I have had years without injury when I have trained hard.  I just don't understand.  My stars have just not been aligned. 

I also have been working on some pretty agressive streaching, man those muscels can get tight. OUCH!

I didn't run today because I didn't get home untill after midnight and I am coming down with the flu.  Knees are feeling better, I think I am just overly paranoid that I will injure myself and I don't want that.  Hopefully I won't get to sick and my knees will coroperate so I can start up next week and have a good week.

Selpt in because I still didn't feel great.  Took my son later in the jogger started at will and ran up 4 miles and back.  Knees felt fine.  I saw the chiropractor today and told him what happened wearing the gait correction straps and he said that happens with some people and to work into them more slowly.  I wore it on my right for 1 mile and on my left for .70 of a mile.  So we will see how my knee so with that.  He also told me I need orthotics,  I have had orthotics in the past and never liked them so we will see how convinsing he is, he did do a foot scan and showed me.

Ran with Cheryl around 9:30.  We did trails-started at the water towers and went up the stairway  up to where you can look out over the canyon and ran up there.  Was absoultly  beautiful the clouds cleared up and the sun came out, it was all misty and just looked awsome.  Can feel the sickness moving to my chest, really didn't think I would run because I was coughing so bad last night and my chest hurt but I actually felt better after and I am not coughing as bad, hardly at all.
