Ran out in the cold this morning, although it's not quite as cold as it has been.  20 degrees this morning.  I didn't get really cold until about 2 miles left to go.  Good run nice to get a longer run in for me anyway.  Had some tightness in my calves around 2 miles in but otherwise felt good today.

Now it will take me a few more hours to get warmed back up.

I was sick for most of the night with cramps and an upset stomach and not much sleep so no run this morning.

33 Degrees this morning on the 6th of January.  I'll take that any time in January.  Thought I'd celebrate the 'WARMTH' and take a longer run this morning.  Good run, had a little tweak in my right quad about 5 miles in but it feels fine now.  Just took it easy and enjoyed the run this morning.

Back into the freezer again this morning, 16 degrees of here's January again.  Felt tired today and cold, not too bad until about .25 to go though.  The only good thing wash the slushy Powerade in my bottle when I got home, yummy!

I know I'm probably a big wimp but a little too cold for me this morning.  6 Degrees in the Ogden area so I hit the TM.  Finished watching Vertigo, great movie I'd recommend it.

Nothing to exciting today about the run just another TM run.  Feels like I'm just logging miles.

Red Air day, Ogden has the 4th unhealthiest air in the country.  Treadmill time.  I was anything but enthused to run on the TM today.  Finally forced myself to run, glad I did but still ready for some clean air to get outside.  Hopefully Wednesday for the clean air.

5.1 miles this morning until the TM sucked my will to live.  Red air day again, don't want to run out in it so I'm stuck on the TM.

Woke up with a sore hamstring, what's up with that.  I don't know where that came from.  It was sore most of the day.  Got back from my son's basketball game and decided to stretch it out a bit.  Hit the TM for 3.1 miles easy.  Hamstring felt ok.

Another TM run this morning.  Very foggy and we STILL have a red air day.  We're in the top 10 in the country as far as bad air goes.  Not a good place to be.  Had to split it up because my daughter needed a ride to school this morning.

My son misplaced the remote for the TV by the Treadmill.  I can't run on the TM without something to distract me.  Raining and then snowing hard outside this morning.  So I got the road bike and the indoor trainer and rode for 51 minutes this morning while watching The Count of Monte Cristo upstairs.  Good workout and nice for a change of pace.

Good movie but the book was much better.

First run outside in about 3 weeks.  Clean air, 30-32 degrees, and very light snow shower this morning.  It was really great to get back outside.  Just enjoyed the run despite not getting much sleep and the sleep I got wasn't good quality.

Short lived outside running this week.  Snowing pretty hard this morning when I got up so back to the TM.  What can I say another TM run.  Watched the end of Beverly Hills Ninja and some of Monsters Inc. today.  Monsters Inc. is much better but as stupid as the other show was it's still funny.

Not a good night of sleep, probably due in part to the wind.  The weather report said gust up to 50+, I believe it.  Didn't want to run uphill for 2 miles into that wind so I made myself hit the TM.  I REALLY didn't want to run on the TM today and mentally I wasn't into it and it dragged on forever today.

Watched Pineapple Express, kind of corny but entertaining.

Got outside for a good run this morning.  Ran the Terrace loop, temps were wround 26 this morning.  A little windy at the top of the Terrace and I got a little cold but otherwise it was great to get outside.

After working util 1 AM I found out that I just don't handle 1 AM like I used to.  Today's run was a struggle but I got through it.  Nothing special, except that it wasn't on the TM.  It was around 33 this morning can't complain about that although I still felt cold.

Still tired, I think part of the problem is too much TM running over the last few weeks and running outside is different.  Good run otherwise, wind blowing a little from the west/northwest this morning which is odd because it usually blows from the south/southeast.  The wind change made me a little cold on the 2nd half of the run today.  One good thing about the wind is it seems to have cleaned out the air, it looks pretty clear out this morning.
