Back outside for a run today.  Lower abs are sore but I think I should be able to run through this.  Good new is that the groin is getting better.  Temp was around 30 this morning but the sun came up about 4 miles in, it felt nice to get in the sun.

Lower abs still a little sore, I can really feel it when I start to run.  Outside again in 36 degree temps no wind.  Great morning, sun came out again felt great.  I think I'm a little tired after the short week last week but my groin feels good so it looks like it was the right thing to do even though I guilted myself out pretty good.

The run today was tough.  It seemed like I was running in place no matter how hard I pushed it.  Made it through though so that's good.  Pretty warm this morning, 44-46 and overcast so no sun today, bummer.  I guess the good thing was that I only wore 2 shirts, a lighter pair of pants and gloves.

A little sore yesterday so I decided to rest up.  Snowing really hard this morning and there was at least an inch of slush on the road so I hit the TM.  Just a TM run the good part was that 'A Shot In the Dark' was on, great movie.  You can't beat Peter Sellers made the run better.

Short run today, just getting ready to go out the door and my daughter informed me that I had to take her to school today.  So short on time equals short run.

Longer run today, haven't hit 7 since the basketball injuries.  Good run a little tired and a little sore in the lower abs but good to get out again.  Uneventful otherwise which is ok.  Temps about 37 and a very slight sprinkle that I hardly noticed.

First a couple of complaints:  1) I hate diesel trucks when running because I have to breath their exhaust down the road.  2) What's with some people not moving over when passing a runner in their car?  They move over more for parked cars than runners, it's not right.

 Now that I've got the complaints out of the way, good run today but is was pretty cold this morning.  26 degrees this morning and I had to go back to the cold weather gear, bummer.

Cold again today, about 26 when I left but around 32 when I got home.  Hello sunshine, felt great coming out of the shade into the sun at around 1.5 miles.

Lazy this morning and really pretty tired, I hate this time change.  Slept in so I decided to run after work.  What a great afternoon, 51-52 blue skies.  Ran in shorts and short sleeve shirt it felt great soaking in the sun.

Good run this morning.  Less than 12 hours after running last night so I was kind of tired to start but felt much better after about a mile.  Cooler, only about 33 this morning, not the 51 I had last night.  Windy at the top of the hill made it feel a little cooler but not too bad.

Very tired run today, I'm dragging.  The time change is killing me this year I don't know what's up.  Anyway besides being tired had a good run today, temps about 41 no wind.  The sunrise was nice today, pinks and oranges.  Nice to be back into spring.

Another 5 miler today, just trying to get back in a groove.  Woke up dragging again but I'm glad I got out the door.  Good run, it's just really nice to have Spring and NO winter.

Bad night Thursday night, either had some food poisoning or a touch of the stomach flu.  Up most of the night.  Just didn't feel like a run on Friday morning.

Hit the TM for 3.5 this morning.  Watched Desperado, good show I like the style of the movie.

Great run today, I felt really good throughout.  No watch today so I just ran how I felt, didn't really notice how long I was out.  Nice morning temps around 40, ran the WT loop for a change today.

Donated blood yesterday afternoon, woke up this morning wiped out.  I figure that's a good excuse to take a morning off.

Cool this morning, about 32 but it felt colder.  Good run although my legs felt tired, maybe due to donating blood.  Nice morning, not a cloud in the sky and the sun coming up over the mountains felt great and then some geese flew over pretty low honking away.  I was soaking in the warmth.  Great to be out today.

Good run this morning, cloudy so the temps were a warmish 45 with some wind.  Felt pretty good today even though I'm having a hard time getting out the door.  Once out the door I'm glad I'm running just need to remeber.

Tough run this morning.  VERY windy, steady around 25 Mph gusting to 40 or so.  Ran Washington Terrace loop to try and minimize the effects.  That helped a little but running uphill for 2-3 miles into that wind is tough.  Legs are very tired now.  It was pretty warm, 56 this morning.  Got a little hot for the last mile running back with the wind.
