running (YMCA Trail) 1:02:34 [3] 5.65 mi (11:04 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Ghost 9

Started raining and thundering 7:30 this morning. Stopped raining about out when I could to get in a 'run'. Really started slow and of course shoes got wet and I unnecessarily wore a wind suit and I still just felt blase so all things considered this was an 'ok' workout. Nothing great and I was discouraged at first. My form feels better and my feet seem to be pushing off a little more but not running faster...if anything a little slower as if I'm having to adjust to the slightly different form.

Shoes wet and heavy by halfway.

I had to take a slight detour on each lap due to about 100 yards of too wet an area...added on a little at the end...up to the footbridge that I did not do last week. Time was 11:05 last week and 11:04 this week (per mile)>

I sure hope I have some workouts where it feels like I'm running free and for me relatively quick sometime in next month or two...and I'm so sick of the rain...of course there will be a curse on Okieland for that sentiment. It's flood or drought here.

walk trot (walk only nice breezy day) 55:46 [3] 3.5 mi (15:56 / mi)
shoes: New Balance 460

Needed rest after 3 week training push and being ill/heat-stroked; whatever, yesterday.

Second day in a row to do jump exercises after workout. 100 'air' jump ropes, 25 jumping jacks and 25 leg stride springs. Yesterday I did not do the leg stride springs.

Working on calves, feet, ankles and toes for more spring and push.

running (OC Trail 2.5 mile loops) 1:18:24 [3] 7.5 mi (10:27 / mi)
shoes: Hoka Mach Black/Red

So far the Hoka black/red's are not impressing me. They are nice shoes but feel soft and stiff and clunky at the same time...I will not be surprised if I eventually like them stride is better...but I am not realizing how far out of shape I am. I was in good enough shape to bluff my way through the times I was doing...but increasing miles or trying to run faster for any distance is proving to be more of a challenge than I expected. All I can do is keep going forward.

I need the strength that longer runs give you.

It was a little windy, a little humid, a little warm and I was kinda pooped when I started...that was too much to overcome. I actually thought I was going to have about a 10 min pace run but I never ever got going...which could be taken as a good legs and feel were dead and I was running on sheer willpower...

1M 11:17 (not bad)
2m 21:55 (approx...10:40) this one made me think I'd be 'okay'
2.5M 27:12 (10:55 pace)
3m no time
3.5M 37:30 (10:18 from 2.5 to 3.5)
4M 42:55
5M 53:05 (25:53 2nd loop...about a minute slower than I wanted
6M 1:03:30 (10:25)
6.5M 1:08:35
7M 1:13:25 (9:55)
7.5 1:18:24

Tough workouts. I am able to push hard more often now. That gives me the chance to see what I can do. Stride much better not perfect yet

Incredible weather after all the cool wet crap not that it hasn’t been that way everywhere lately. Nice and warm with clear skies and big puffy white clouds.

At farm. It has been wet here also. Water in ditches but roads dry and the gravel situation is much improved since Xmas. Two long stretches of uphill. First half mile and then from 2.5 to 3.2 which makes for good workout.

2m 24:02. (11:17)
3m. 34:50. (10:48)
