Back outside this morning.  The snow was just winding down and the roads were clear.  How about 4-6 inches of snow, that sucked.  No energy today, felt like I was running in sand until about 3.5 miles.

Better morning, althoug a little cold.  33 when I left this morning but no wind, happy day!  Good run otherwise although I wish I wasn't looking at snow all over the grass as I run by on the 2nd of April. 

I had something odd today with about .8 to go.  The right(outside) side of my right quad started to feel warm, stayed that way until I finished.  It feels okay now.

Broke out some new shoes today, had some tightness in my calves but not too bad.  Always something minor breaking in new shoes.  Temps were good this morning around 45 but the wind was blowing again.  Ran the Washington Terrace loop to help minimize the wind again.  Good run this morning, got too warm in the last mile running with the wind had to take my gloves off and push my sleeves up. 

I'm just really finished with the wind and snow, where's spring?  I think we're paying for not having any snow in January and February.

Woke up to 9" of snow, on April 6th, what a bummer.  Lost all motivation and went back to bed.

Great morning, although pretty cold.  27 degrees this morning but not a cloud in the sky.  Still a lot of snow on the grass but the roads were clear this morning.  Some icy patches but nothing to worry about.

Great run, felt pretty good today.  First time I've felt really good since donating blood a couple of weeks ago.

Another great morning, although still a little cool.  30 degrees this morning but no clouds and the only place I got some wind was at the top of Washington Terrace.  Ran the Washington Terrace loop today, good run I felt pretty good again today.  A little tired starting out but once I got warmed up after a mile or so it was good.

Had to retire the Nike Pegasus, the shoe liner creased on my heel and it feels like I'm running on a twig or something.  It's the 2nd pair of Nike shoes that the liner has creased on the heel.  I had to retire the Brooks Defyance 2 because the heel cup wore through the liner and started rubbing just below my ankle.  Shoe prices keep going up but it seems like quality is going down.

I wanted to go a bit further this morning but whatever it takes to run 6 or 7 miles I didn't have it this morning.  Didn't start feeling ok until 4.5 - 5 miles in, just dragging a bit today.  Glad I got out though.

2.5 miles easy this morning with my wife at the school track before our daughters soccer game.  She had to be there early so we figured we'd go for a quick run.  Good to run with my wife for a change.

A little cool this morning, temp was 37 but the wind was blowing and there was some snow on the grass.  There was a lot of worms on the road this morning, because of the rain.  It was really hard to avoid them at some points.  Good run but it felt cold because of the wind.  I think it's about time we get a break from the wind, it's been blowing since Saturday afternoon.

Felt tired today getting out of bed but once I got started I felt ok.  I was only going to go 5.4 but I added a little extra to get to 6.  Really nice morning for a run, the sun felt great today and better yet there was no wind.

Another great morning.  Temps around 43, at the top of the hill.  My thermometer read 39 when I left.  Overdressed a little so I took my gloves off and rolled up my sleeves at the half way point.  Felt pretty good again today, ran the Washington Terrace loop.

Another nice morning, temps around 45-50.  I actually got to wear short sleeved shirt and shorts and it felt great.  Ran 5.4 so I could get home a little early to help my wife with directions, her and my daughter are taking their final cert dives for scuba this morning.

I felt pretty good so I added another mile after I got home and my wife and daughter left.

Another great morning, shorts and short sleeve shirt again.  Unfortunately the weather is supposed to change on Wednesday.  Went a little longer that I have recently today, I felt pretty good.  Nice to get out for a little longer run, pretty uneventful otherwise.

A little tired today getting out of bed but once I got going everything was ok.  Good run and another nice morning.  You can't beat 50 degrees and the sun coming up.

Lots of stuff going on this morning.  Had to get up early and run a little short to get my daughter to school and drop my car off to be inspected and emissions tested. 

Good run this morning I felt  really good.  Got rained on for the whole run, light at first and then about half way it got a little more serious.

I wanted to run a little further today but I decided to listen to my body.  Woke up exhausted and it didn't get any better during my run.  Just one of those days.  Glad I got out the door at all it was soooo hard to wake up let alone get out of bed.

Holy cow I'm still tired, I guess it's going to be one of those weeks.  Just an easy 6.25 miles today.  Got out late because of some work issues this morning so it was a little warmer than I'm used to with the sun up.

The first half, uphill, really wiped me out today.  My legs feel really tired.

Still dragging today.  I think I've decided I've got a little stomach bug.  I just haven't felt right since Sunday.  Anyway raining and very windy this morning so I hit the TM and made it through.  Watched 'The Freshman' this morning with Marlon Brando, great show really funny.

Had some soreness in my right groin area starting out this morning so I just took it easy today.  Luckily the weather stayed clear, although pretty cold at 32 degrees.  Had some great tunes to run today Foo Fighters, Queen, and Stevie Ray Vaughn.  Felt less tired today than all week even though I got less sleep last night, what's up with that...

Had some work problems to deal with this morning so I got out a little late.  Good run still cold, 38, but warmer than yesterday.  Felt better today than I have all week, which is good because we've had a busy week with soccer and lacrosse games in Bountiful and Provo.

Another Foo Fighters song came up on the random play again today, great songs to run to.
