Ok, inversions really really blow.  I finally talked myself into running on the treadmill about 2:30 this afternoon.  Blah, blah, blah.

Late night for work around midnight and didn't get to sleep until around 1.  The alarm went off at 5:30...no way was I getting up.  Need more sleepy time.

Back outside this morning for a great run.  The air cleared enough to get us into the yellow this morning.  Ohhh it's sooo nice running outside after the TM.

Cold out this morning at 12 but still nice to get outside.  Nice clean, cold air this morning after last weeks crappy air.  I felt a little tired today, I think I might be getting sick..booo.  Hopefully I can fend it off.

Well, I've got a full fledged head cold.  Did not feel well this morning.  Got home from work and decided to hit the TM for a little bit.  Actually felt better running but back to blah after.

Well after having my butt completely kicked last week being sick...got back out this morning.  Plan was for 13 but I talked myself into an easy 10 instead.  Good thing, I'm still not completely back yet.  Good run still, nice to get out and do something.

Not much worse than this...running along this morning and a big German Shepard jumps out at me growling.  I'm fumbling for my pepper spray, luckily a car driving by stopped and honked and scared the dog.  The stupid owner asked if it bit me, never heard a sorry or anything.  He was across the street and up a house.  PUT YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH!  It took another mile or so for me to chill back out.

This cold won't let go, congestion and head ache yesterday thought I'd take it easy.  Good run this morning, no dog attack so that's always a plus.  It's weird to me how 24 degrees can feel really cold on some mornings, Tuesday, but not too bad this morning.

Good to get back out for a nice run this morning.  Felt good today just cruisin.  Being in Las Vegas all weekend for soccer and sitting outside in shorts and t-shirt really made it hard to come back home to the cold and smog.  I'm soooooo ready for spring.

So far we've been pretty lucky with this inversion, hopefully it continues because the last I hear the next storm is around the 1st of February.  Good run outside again this morning although it definately felt colder today.

Cold, tired run this morning.  Had a pretty good sized sweat icicle on my headphones..kinda gross in a way.

Windy, tired run today.  At least the air was clear and I actually overdressed a little.  Temp was 28 but it felt a little nicer, I guess when compared to 18 or so yesterday it's much warmer.  Running into the wind wiped me out this morning.

Let the whining begin....I was freakin cold today.  Never could get comfortable plus I was just off.  Never felt right either.  Glad I got out and got it done though.

Well what do you know a Saturday run.  This was made possible by me being completely lazy sitting around about 3:30.  I hadn't showered yet and was really bored and thought I might as well be bored on the TM.  Nice and easy watching last weeks MythBusters.

Out in the crappy air this morning, temps were better than Friday though.  What we got like 2 days of clean air last week...WOW!

Nice run this morning I felt pretty good today.  Now if the air would clear...  Is it just me or do we have a lot of personel diesel pickup trucks in Utah.  Seems to me with our air quality problems they shouldn't allow these kind of trucks because they seem to be high polluters.  I think that when 10-15 of them drive by me in the morning and I get to breathe that wonderful exhaust for .25 I think they should be banned.  Ok, there's my rant for the week.

Snowy, slushy, slick, and wet run this morning.  No plows out until I got to around 5.5 miles in.  Wore my All Weather Ride 2's and my Storm socks(thanks for the mention last month Allie) and all was good.

Foggy and very slick this morning.  It was tricky slick because I couldn't tell the difference between dry and slick road.  Made for an interesting run.  Good to get out on the last day of January...yeah!
