Busy day... so I ran that evening at the gym on the treadmill.  Right knee hurt a little.... again!!!!  Walked one mile after run.

Did a moderate upper body work out after run/walk.

Rode bike to work.  Easy ride.

Ran at lunch time today.  The first 2 miles the inside right knee felt a little sore so I started out very easy by running 4 minutes and walking 1 minute.  I did that for the first 15 minutes then the knee pain stopped and I slowly picked up the pace every half mile.  I ran 1 mile at marathon pace and finished strong.  I suspect the hamstring is the cause of my knee pain.  Pain goes away when I stretch the ham.

Rode bike to work, home for lunch for my run, back to work again, and then to the gym for yoga.  Spent an hour in yoga doing A LOT of power yoga and balancing poses.  It burned the quads really good.  Rode bike home.  Cathy rode with me to the gym.

Then the kids and I went to Del Taco for taco nite... HEE HAW!!!

What a day to run... LOTS of wind!!!  My 11 year old son and I left the house with a 2 mile warm up (10:40 pace).  It was up hill and head wind... errrrrr!!!  After we got turned around and had the wind at our backs, we picked up our pace for the next 4 miles.  The last mile was head wind and slightly up hill.  Over-all pace 9:16.

Rode bike to work today in the wind and with a few sprinkles from mother nature... All Fun!!  Tonight is yoga.

Yeserday, I rode my bike to work, and that night I swam half mile (15 minutes) at City pool.

First I ran to work to change a setting on some eqiuipment I left running.  I made this my warm up run since it was down hill and 3 miles (9:05 pace).

Next, I took a 3 mile (8:58 pace) up-hill climb that left me breathless by the time I got to the top. I'm glad I pushed myself.

The next 5 miles was a slight to gradual downhill.  My pace got up to 8:11 at times but the average ended up being 8:41. Ran 1 mile cool down with walking (10:26 pace)  I feel really good.  I made myself a 3 egg omlet wrapped over fried spaghetti, salsa, and mozzarella cheese... yummm!!

Yesterday, I biked 19 miles.  During the middle of the ride I stopped at the City pool to swim 34 laps, then rode home.  Good day!

 Biked to work everyday this week.
