Nice run out this morning in great weather.  Kinda boring otherwise but no complaints.

It was dry for 2 miles then the rain hit and didn't let up.  I did 1 smart thing today though, I took my gloves off before it started raining and didn't put them on again until I was half way.  My hands got a little cold about 3.5-4 miles but then I had warm dry gloves for the last half.

The run felt hard today and form wise I felt really clunky.  Just one of those days.  Otherwise it was a little cooler but nice to get out and stay dry after yesterday.  

Cool sunrise this morning through Weber Canyon.  The canyon was full of clouds with the sun making the top half yellow.

Great morning but I still felt clunky and slow today.  50 degrees this morning and I overdressed with a long sleeved shirt.

Don't get me wrong I like my Altra shoes but they need to work on their laces.  These are the only shoes I have that consistently come untied.  I have to double knot them to get through a run.  They came untied 2 times in the first 1.5 this morning.

I've got a little bit of an injury so I took a couple of days off.  Feels pretty much the same, it's a weird side shin thing that feels tight.  Couldn't resist the nice day out and I wanted to give the shin a try.  Great lunch time run out on a perfect day, leg feels the same now lets see how it holds up.

Nice run this morning.  Shin is still slightly sore but much better than yesterday.  Iced up when I got home and took some Naproxen.  Hopefully this will be an easy one to get over.  Oh and yeah the Altra laces came untied again before 1.5 miles.  I hate to double knot my shoes but looks like that's what I'm going to have to do.

Tired run on a cool but great morning.  Glad I got out.  Didn't get much sleep on Wednesday night, that and the time change both got me today.  Trudged through and got it done.

Great morning even if it was a little windy.  Good run felt ok today, my shin is getting a little better everyday.  The bonus is I get to keep running.

Great run on a really nice morning.  Just Cruisin enjoying the first day of spring.  Did you catch the sunrise?

Lunch-n-run as my collegue has titled it today.  Awesome afternoon for an easy 5.

Tired run this morning, my legs felt heavy.  Probably due to the double yesterday that I'm not used to.  I think it's good to run tired sometimes.  It helps you get over the mental "I can't do this because I'm tired" thing.  So this morning was a good mental workout in the bag.

My friend Nick (Oreo on the blog) is running the Buffalo 25k this morning so that motivated me to go out for a little run.  Awesome morning for a great run.

Can't say it was a good run today but I'm glad I got out.  Very tired and it seemed like I was EPICALLY slow.  It seemed to take FOREVER.  Not sure what's up just one of those tired, dragging days I guess.

Taking what the weather gives this week so I switched runs with tomorrow.  Really good run today, night and day from yesterday.

Another take what the weather gives day.  Nice morning with temps in the upper 40's.  Great run, I felt good again today.  The wind really started kicking up with about 1.5 to go so I had a pretty strong headwind to finish up.

So I weighed myself for the first time before and after running today and was completely shocked.  I lost 3.2 lbs running today, I never thought it would be that high.

Started getting dressed this morning and I could hear the rain start.  Usually when I can hear the rain I don't really run.  So I got back into bed, ahhhhh.  10-15 minutes later I couldn't hear the rain anymore.  So I got up and got out the door before I changed my mind.

Light rain for pretty much the entire run, wasn't too bad just not optimal.  Really strong headwind for the 2nd half made it cold but bearable.  Begrudgingly it was good to get out.

Ok, so I did something stupid today....I haven't eaten since Saturday morning and I go out and run 13.1.  Granted it wasn't fast miles but it was miles.  I needed something physically draining to see if it would help with some bad mojo in my head.
