In Summary...

Wednesday's Run: Temperature: 59 degrees; Splits 8:57; 9:08; 9:11; 9:05; 8:57; 1:34; 46:52 total for 5.1 miles; 9:11 per mile pace.

Today's Run: Temperature: 56 degrees; Splits 8:20; 8:37; 8:30; 25:27 total for 3 miles; 8:29 per mile pace.

Yesterday's goal: Run between 40 and 50 minutes at a pace of 9:40 per mile. Ran for 46:52 at a pace of 9:11 per mile. Woo-Hoo!

Today's goal: Run between 20 and 30 minutes at a pace of 8:40 per mile. Ran for 25:27 at a pace of 8:29 per mile. Double Woo-Hoo!!

One more run to go for week 4 of my 26 week "Jeff Galloway" marathon training schedule. I'm psyched because I'm still feeling well health-wise. My heel is still a "non-issue." The training is doable, enjoyable and easy on my 52 year old body. If only the weather here would cooperate. I'm tired of temperatures 20 degrees below normal. But I guess I shouldn't complain. It could be 20 degrees ABOVE normal. Random thought: Anybody know a good website for buying GU products??

Keep up the good work Rick. Are you using a Garmin?

GREAT job on the runs! You're off to a super beginning.

I'm not sure about the best place for Gu. I have ordered it from Roadrunnersports.com in the past, but that is mostly because they are based here in San Diego, so I get them in one day without paying for expedited shipping.

If you wait a few days, I have a Gu giveaway coming up (if you like orange burst). I'm going to post it after my marathon race report early next week.
