What a grinder today, every step was tough and I never felt right.  Probably due to all the crap I ate yesterday.  Hopefully the rest of the week goes better.

 

PM - 30 minutes on the indoor bicycle trainer watching Seinfeld.  Love the Seinfeld, hate the Drake.

Coldest run of the season at 14 on top of snowy and very slick roads.  Slow going today just trying not to fall down.  Felt better today and didn't fall so all in all a good run.

Another 10 cold miles this morning.  I think my nose ran 20 today, holy crap I was sick of the constant nose running.  Hate the cold.

Broke out the new Instincts today.  Good shoes I really like them.  A little warmer this morning but I've determined that my optimal snot producing temperature is in the 20's.  Aside from the runny nose I had a good run this morning.

Snow on and off this morning and then with 1.5 left it started to snow hard for the rest of the way.  A little tired this morning but nothing too bad, so overall a good run this morning.

Rain for the first 3 miles then it got pretty nice.  Good run this morning in the fairly balmy 36 degrees, I'll take that in February.  I felt better today than I have in a few weeks.

Nice run this morning, I felt like I got a really good workout today.  Not sure about pace but it felt good.  Decided to switch workouts with tomorrow because it's supposed to rain.  I'd rather run that extra 1.5 dry...

Got out a little early to beat the rain and decided to do Friday's run today since it's supposed to rain for a couple of days.  Warm enough for shorts today, that was nice.  Ended up having a pretty good run today at almost HMP.  Didn't go out with that pace in mide but that's what it ended up to be.

Well my plan came together.  Glad I ran the longer runs Tuesday and Wednesday becasue it was raining pretty good for the entire run today.  I was pretty much soaked and other than my freakin shoe laces coming untied 5 times it wasn't too bad.  I kept telling myself it's better than the TM and that was motivation enough to run it outside.

Good run this morning, it was really nice out.  A light rain started at the half way point but nothing like yesterday.  Good to get the week over with, just make it through work and then a 3 day weekend.

Summary for today:  Half Marathon, 1 mean dog, 1 nice dog, 1 other runner, lots of Robin's, and lots of birds singing.  Good run now to relax for the rest of the day.

Really nice out this morning.  I over dressed a little but that's ok because I felt like being warm today.  Tired legs today and a little fatigued now.  Hopefully they snap out of it.

Taking what the weather gives me right now.  Really good headwind this morning until I got to the top of the hill about 4 miles in then it died down.  Neato....otherwise a great morning and a good run.  My legs felt better today, not completely good but better than the jellosauce from yesterday so I'll take it.

Cold out this morning and the wind was really bitter.  I was getting used to the nice mornings in shorts, what happened?  Good run this morning, I had a hard time getting up but the run went really well and I was cruising.

Easy cruiser on a nice morning, feels good and just enjoying running right now.  It will get even better as the weather improves.

Really nice run today, didn't feel like I was going to fast but I ended up just a couple minutes slower than Ogden HM last year.  Really a great morning as well, wore shorts, just 2 shirts, and light gloves.  Ended up taking the gloves off, can't ask for much better in February.  I guess we're getting some good Karma for the 2+ week inversion in January.

Plan was for 8.5 today but it was soooo nice I tacked on a bit further into South Ogden and through Rohmer park .  Great run today.

Feel good moment of the day...I'm running along about 4 miles in and a guy in a car slows down and starts talking to me.  He tells me he's been seeing me run for years and that I'm an inspiration to him and it's awesome that I get out there in the morning.  Kinda makes you feel good to know that.

Anyway, good run today on another spectacular morning, let alone this being February.  Just cruisin.

It's funny how the little things can make a run good.  Today's little thing was a street sweeper.  Oh it was sooo nice running after the street sweeper so all those little rocks were gone.

Gave blood yesterday afternoon so today's run was easy peasy.  Definately felt some fatigue but not too bad.
