Tough run today, my body just didn't want to run.  I didn't start to feel alright until the 5th mile.  I don't know what was up I was really dragging for most of it today.  Here's my guess, late night last night and woke up when my son's alarm went off at about 7:30 and couldn't go back to sleep.  Pretty good headwind for the first half didn't help either.

Up at 2:30am for a server problem at work for a while then I had a hard time getting back to sleep.  Hit the TM this morning for 3.5 miles at 1% incline.

Didn't sleep really well last night so the 7.5 is laying in bed with my eyes closed.  I probably got about 5.5 hours overall.  Very cold outside and some wind coming out of the canyon, wind chills were below zero so I hit the TM this morning.  My left shin and the top of my foot are feeling tight.  It started on the TM run on Saturday.  Doesn't seem to bother me at any time but on the TM.  5.1 Miles at 1% incline.

What is it about running on a TM...I get to around 30 minutes and I'm just done.  Snowed last night and started again this morning.  The roads were a mess so back to the TM.  5.1 miles at 1% incline.

Long story short I only had about a half an hour to run this morning.  Roads were still a mess from the storm so I hit the TM.  Now my left heel and achilles is sore, probably from compensating for the sore left shin so it probably didn't hurt that I had to cut it short today.  3.1 miles at 1% incline.

Time: 28:00

Nice easy run tonight on the TM.  Decided to get a little more mileage in so I just took it easy.  3.2 miles at 1% incline.

Car still in the shop so after taking my wife to work I only had 1/2 hour to run before my daughter had to be to school.  At least I got a run in outside.  It was great to be outside the weather needs to start cooperating for us runners.  Pretty stiff headwind this morning for the uphill portion slowed me down.

Took Friday off because I woke up and my achilles was sore so I thought I'd give it the weekend to feel better.  So far so good, it felt alright this morning.  Finally the car problems and weather are cooperating so I got in a good run outside.  Nothing beats a good run outside after running on the treadmill for most of the last month.  Good run this morning although I struggled a bit for the first 2 miles which are uphill.  A little tired for the rest of the run.  I was really feeling my calves for the first 2 - 2.5 miles after that it settled down.  I know I didn't break any speed records for today but I still had good effort.

Very tired today, up since 3:30 with server problems at work.  Got out a little late due to these problems but at least I got in a good 5.5 outside today.  You can't beat this weather for the middle of January, just great.  Good effort today even though I was very tired.  Still getting back into the outside groove after all the TM runs in the last month.

Up a little late again with another server problem so I'm really dragging this morning.  I really had to force myself out the door today but I did it.  Good effort again but it feels like I'm running in slow motion.  1st half time today less than 1 second slower than yesterday, pretty good consistency.

Finally a good run this week.  Woke up yesterday just dead tired so I decided to take a break, it seems to be just what my body needed.  Best run of the week by far I felt good, didn't feel like my energy was completely zapped.

Easy run this morning after lifting weights.  Decided to do a slow run with a lot of incline so I averaged 5% incline for the run.  I hit 10.5% for about 2.5 minutes.  Good Saturday morning workout.

Good hard run this morning.  I hit the halfway point at 33:36 so compared to last weeks runs that was about 1:30 faster.  It felt like I was hitting a pretty good pace for me today.  I was a little worried about running in the bad air today but I really needed to get out and run.  I couldn't bear the thought of running on the TM today.

Cold run this morning, I hate these inversions.  Besides making the air dirty with pollution it's really cold as well.  Only went 5.5 miles today instead of the planned 7 because of the dirty air.

Another run in the dirty air, only 5 miles again trying to limit my time breathing this crap.  Left knee is a little sore, I'm pretty sure it's from the weight lifting that I've started.  I'll have to try and work through it without really hurting myself.  Felt like I had a pretty good 1st mile and a not so good 2nd mile, I haven't looked at the splits yet.  The really steep part of the hill between 1.3 and 1.4 miles is wiping me out lately.

Slow, hard run this morning on the snowy, slushy roads.  It felt like I ran 6-7 miles today rather than 5.  I'm glad I got outside though.  Knee still a little sore, from Thursday but if I quit doing the leg extensions when I lift weights it should be okay.  Lifted again last night without the leg extensions and it doesn't hurt quite as bad.  Got cold for the last 2 miles this morning because of a pretty good headwind out of the north.

10 degrees with some wind this morning, a little too cold for me so I hit the TM.  5.25 miles at 1% incline.  My knee was sore for the first 5 minutes but once it warmed up it was okay.

Good run outside this morning.  Can't complain when we get 30 degrees in the morning in January.  Just took it nice and easy this morning.  Watch died between 6-6.5 miles so no times today.  Knee still feeling better, it was a little sore last night but felt good this morning.  Nice to have January almost out of the way, not my favorite month.

Hard time getting up this morning.  Made myself get up and go out for a run though, glad I did.  Good hard run today, knee is feeling alright still so that's good.  Only the 1st of 2 uphill miles over 10 so that was good today.
