Nice morning for a run, skies were crystal clear with the sun rising.  Felt good to get out for an uneventful run.  Normal 5.5 plus I added the Rohmer Park extension to add .5.

Good run again this morning but still feels a little cold for 32, hopefully these warmer days will melt the snow so it doesn't feel as cold.  Another good uneventful run again.  The sunrises have been really colorful this week, it's been kinda nice to be out.

Quite an eventful run today.  Watched the weather before I left and it looked like the rain would clear for 30-60 minutes so I headed out.  I was wrong, it started raining fairly hard about .5 in and didn't stop.  At around 3 miles the hail and lightning started.  Needless to say I was cold and soaked but still glad I got out, aside from the lightning.

A little icy out this morning, a very thin coat on the road that you couldn't really see.  Made it a little difficult on toe off.  Good run today aside from the icy roads it was nice out.

Woke up this morning and my wife wanted to go out for a run.  2 easy miles with my wife in a light rain.  Great to be out running with her.

Nice moring and I was feeling ok, besides the normal tiredness of Monday morning.  Decided to go a little longer this morning.  Run was great, uneventful and no problems.

Around 6" of snow last night left the roads a mess.  As I was walking out the door I found out that I needed to drive my daughter to school today.  Since I didn't get up early I only had time for about 4 on the messy unplowed roads.  Got home from taking her to school and shoveled the driveway.

Feeling pretty good lately and had a good run this morning.  What is that bright ball in the sky that was providing some warmth?  Seems like I haven't seen it much this winter.

Guess I might have jinxed myself a little bit yesterday.  My hip got sore yesterday afternoon, still a little sore so I took it easy this morning.  Nice sunrise through Weber Canyon, started pink went to orange and then yellow.  It almost looked fake.

Nice morning and a good run today.  Pushed the pace a little, didn't really do it consciously it just happened.  It's really nice to feel good running again.

Got bored and I couldn't talk my wife into a run so I got out instead of watching TV.  Ran 10 miles easy and felt pretty good today.  I was running easy enough that it felt like I could run forever.  Weather was perfect, sunny slight breeze and about 55 degrees.  It was great to get out in shorts again.

Cloudy but nice morning, temps around 47 no wind.  Legs a bit tired from yesterday and I could really feel it today.  Pushed the pace a little anyway, good to get out for a run.  Man I HATE this time change but I like more light later, I didn't want to get up this morning. 

As I was typing this entry a deer just ran by my window at work.

Hard time getting up again but I made it out the door.  Washington Terrace loop today for a change, good run but it seemed to take forever.  I was trying to push pace a little but it dragged on today.

Wildlife week continued today a flock of geese flew over honking away this morning.

Morning came quick today.  Managed to get up for a great run on a pretty perfect morning with temps around 52.  Felt really good today and pushed the pace for the entire run, much better than yesterdays run.

Much colder today, 17 degrees difference from yesterday morning.  Left calf tightened up about 2 miles in and wouldn't loosen up.  So I took it easy for the last 3.5.

Well I'm officially hurt now, not happy.  Took Friday, Saturday, and Sunday off because my calf hurt on Thursday and Friday.  Felt good on Saturday and Sunday.  It felt good this morning no problems until 3 miles then it started hurting again.  I stopped immediately tried to call my son, daughter, and wife and nobody would answer a freakin phone so I walked/hobbled home.

Got a calf sleeve yesterday so I could try and see if it would help.  Ran 3 easy miles on the TM this morning trying not to make anything worse.  Calf held up ok, a little irritation but manageable.  I didn't have to limp and it didn't get worse.  Could have probably gone at least 1 more mile but I pushed it enough and stopped.  I'm going to try and take it easy until it gets better.

Calf felt better today so I pushed it a little bit further.  No problem for the run although I'm still on the TM running easy.  Kinda boring today, nothing good on TV this morning.

Another easy 6 on the TM today.  Calf was a little tight but pretty much pain free today which overall I think is an improvement.  Watched Bourne Identity which helped pass the time.

5 more on the TM watching Up today.  Great movie, gotta love Dug.  Calf is getting better just focusing on going easy so it doesn't get worse.

Had to get up a little early this morning to upgrade some servers, got that out of the way and decided to hit the TM.  Watched Top Gear on BBC this morning, hillarious.  Those 3 guys are great.

Calf is feeling better but I'm still being careful.  TM miles today, stepped up the pace about 30 sec. per mile this morning.  Everything is still ok.  Watched 'Catch Me If You Can' this morning, another good film.  I like it better when there's something good on, Sportscenter gets boring.

Great run this morning, I felt really good and was able to push the pace.  I was back outside for the first time in a week so that felt good as well.  A little cold this morning but the sunrise was very colorful.

I was only going to go 5.5 so as not to push my calf but I felt really good so I added the Rohmer park and Piccolo Bros. pizza extensions for an extra mile.

Another early morning to get to SLC for an Oracle conference by 8:00AM.  Great run, nice moon rise through Weber canyon.  Calf acted a little weird with .3 to go so I slowed down and took it easy.
