Walked 0.62 miles

Rain is forecast for tomorrow, so my wife and worked in the yard today. She mowed the grass (1st time this year), and I fertilized the grass. Not only does the grass and flowers need the water, but I need the water to dissolve the fertilizer.  In the evening, my wife and I walked around the block for 0.62 miles. I was on my feet for an hour fertilizing the lawn, and I walked about 0.25 miles, but I didn't count that in the 0.62 miles I got going around the block.

It was a struggle, but I did 1.1 miles

Today was not a good running day. The weather and temperature were fine, but I was tired and struggled to finish the 1.1 miles. There were wind gusts of about 20 mph, but I went south so I would have a tail wind on the way back. I did get the tail wind, but it didn't help much. The temperature was in the low 70s (F), and I took off my wind breaker on the way back. Tomorrow is Sunday and thus a rest day, and we'll see how I feel on Monday. Today, I saw a lot of cyclists on the path and two skaters, but I didn't see many walkers or runners.

Ran and walked 1.1 Miles Again

My wife and I drove to the Jordan River Parkway and went south from the trail head at 100th South. It was a beautiful day with lots of clouds and sun. There were several people on the path. I have one more running day this week, and I will do the 1.1 miles again. Then next week I will increase my distance a bit.

Did 1.1 miles today

My wife and I drove to the Jordan River Parkway. She went north and I went south. I ran/walked to the bench that is just south of the 0.5 mile marker. I took a sitting rest stop for about 30 seconds, and then I returned to my car. After reaching the big Parkway sign at the parking lot, I did my normal stretches that I use at the end of a run, and I walked to my car. My wife got to the car about a minute before I got there. Today was a warm day (temperature in the low 60s (F)), and the sky was cloudy with lots of sun. I didn't see many people on the path, though. Today was another Green day.

Walked about 1.25 Miles

I had an early-morning church meeting at 7 pm, and I walked to and from the meeting, about 1.25 miles round trip. It was dark going down but light and nice coming back. Today is the first day of daylight savings time.

Home Show

I didn't go running and walking today, because my wife and I went to the Salt Lake Home Show yesterday. I didn't get a lot of distance during the show, but I was on my feet for 4 hours, and I needed today as a rest day. I used to run Marathons in four hours, and I think I was as tired yesterday as I was after a Marathon. Such is Marathon training and such is getting old....

Did 1.1 miles

Even though last week and this week so far were Green days, I haven't run or walked during the past week, because I have a sore on my right leg (not related to running), and I've been busy with doctor's visits, scans of my leg for blood clots, etc. Today, I thus reduced my running when my wife and I went to the Jordan River Parkway; I did 1.1 miles, and she walked her normal 2.0 miles.

Today was a great day for running. Lots of sun, path free of snow, temperature in the low 40s (F), only a slight wind, and I felt pretty good! I've had the sore on my leg for the past month, and I have an appointment with the "injury clinic" at the LDS hospital next Monday. I went to an IHC InstaCare place day before yesterday and got three prescriptions, two for pills and one for a salve. My sore was getting worse, and I'm hoping the three prescriptions will help me control the liquid-discharge. The prescriptions seem to be helping, because the amount of liquid and the yellowish color of the liquid are reduced.
