Good morning for a run, temp was 28 clean air just a slight breeze.  Had to take Friday and the weekend off, felt like I was starting to get a shin splint so I just relaxed.

Nothing too eventful this morning just a good run, felt good today.  Hopefully the shin doesn't flare up.

Had to get up early and cut it short so I could get my daughter to school today.  My son gets to go in late since he passed his graduation tests last year and they are testing for the next 3 days so I take her to school so he can sleep in since he's earned it.

Good run felt some tightness in my right shin again but not like Friday.  I'm taking some aleve today to help.

Tired run today, legs felt heavy and it didn't help that there was a headwind for the first 2 miles up hill.  Got to about 2.4 miles and the wind switched so I ended up running against the wind the entire way.  It switched from the southeast to the northwest, and even though the temp was about 31 I got cold the last mile or so.

Another up early run to get my daughter to school, 1 more day to go.

Theme for today's run:  NO MOTIVATION

 Once I got going it took about a mile or so before I got into it and then it was ok.  The hardest part is always getting dressed and getting out the door.  Seemed a little foggy this morning, hopefully it's not the smog but I'm afraid it is it just really built up quickly this time.  Storm Saturday/Sunday will hopefully clean it out.

Just a nice easy run today to finish up the week.  Clouded over pretty good overnight so it actually warmed up from 30 when I went to bed to 34.  Ran the loop around Washington Terrace for a change of pace today.  No tightness or twinges in my shin this morning so that's good news looks like taking last Friday off was a good move.

Did something to my hip on Saturday while squatting down working on my Harley.  It really hurt so no running until today when it started feeling ok.  Now my back is sore, not happy about this.

Good run had some soreness in my hip during the run but nothing too serious.  Took some Naproxen to help.  Had to start early and cut it short, probably a good thing with my condition, to get my daughter to school.  Another late start for my son who is in High School.  I think they get more late starts and vacation days than we ever did.

 Played basketball for 1.5 hrs late, counting 3 miles.  A little bit of a mistake as I ended up with blisters on the balls of my feet and a sore left inner thigh.  Running shoes are not really ideal for basketball unfortunately.

Took yesterday off because of the blisters and sore inner thigh.  Hit the TM for an easy 4 this morning I'm really kind of tired.  Had to work late and early the last couple of nights for work problems and a DB upgrade that took longer than I thought.

Hopefully next week will be a better week.

Didn't get up this morning to run, lazy day off.  Decided to hit the TM about 3 because it's been raining all day.  Hit the TM for about 3 miles and then decided to do the last 2 outside because it stopped raining and I was done with the TM.

Leg was sore this morning and I was pretty tired as well.  Decided to try the TM an hour after dinner.  That way if I started to get sore I could stop.  Good run, a little soreness hopefully nothing some Tiger balm won't fix.  

 I resisted the urge to go practice basketball with the boys tonight.  I really wanted to go but I think it was the smart move with how my leg is feeling.

Back outside this morning for a good run.  Light snow and about 35 degrees.  Leg felt ok from last nights TM run so I hit it.  Felt tired, not used to the equivalent of 2 runs in a day but I did alright.  Kind of short on time this morning so I just hit a 5 miler.

Hard to get out of bed and get going this morning but I made it.  Foggy, vis was only about a quarter of a mile today and temps were between 30-34.  For being slightly warmer it felt cold today, probably due to the fog.  Good news is that my leg is still feeling better.

Starting to see a trend here, nothing that is new though.  Tough to get out of bed and get out the door this morning again.  Once I got out I was alright.  Temps between 30-32 this morning although it didn't feel as cold today.  Good run otherwise, cmon spring.

Well I don't seem to learn my lesson.  2.5 hours playing in the work basketball tournament on Saturday night.  We had fun, didn't win much (1 game).  I did fine until we were out of the tournament and HR wanted to play us in a pickup game.  I shouldn't have pushed my luck, strained my groin going for a loose ball and then I was done.

Just a nice easy 3.1 on the TM this morning to test out my sore leg.  Still some stiffness and some slight tightness, 3 miles was about right.  Hopefully back outside tomorrow.

Right groin really stiffened up after running on Tuesday so just another easy TM run this morning.  I feel much better today so hopefully I've turned the corner.
