What a great morning I actually got to break out the shorts and I took my gloves off during the run.  Awesome sunrise this morning, very colorful.

Typing this entry from the urgent care.  We're having my daughters foot X-Rayed.  She got stepped on, dirty play, on purpose so here we are.  Luckily nothing is broken just sore.

Ran 3 miles while my daughter was warming up for her game.

Cold again this morning and the rest of the week is looking pretty depressing.  Good run otherwise, did the Washington Terrace loop because it was a little windy and this route is more across the wind rather than into it.  Calf started twinging again with about 1 mile to go so I eased up.

Windy this morning and I over dressed a little bit but it wasn't too bad.  It looked colder than it was.  Good run but nothing exciting today, just glad to be out.

My goal today was 2 fold, 1st to take it easy and not hurt my calf any further and 2nd was a test of sorts to see if running longer/slower was better on it than shorter/faster.  Good run had a couple of times when I thought I might be done because my calf started acting up so I focused on relaxing and I got through it ok.  Now to see how it feels throughout the day.

7.25 miles on the TM this morning.  Looks like my test from Wednesday is working out pretty good, the calf is feeling really good today.  Wednesday was a different story however but so far so good.  A real treat this morning on TV while running, The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner movie was on, you can't beat the old Looney Toons.

Had to wait about 10 minutes before leaving this morning for the rain shower to pass.  Got out and had a good run this morning.  I was able to push the pace without any problems.

Nice to hear all the birds out in the morning, now if the weather would cooperate and realize it's Spring.

I felt cold starting out this morning and by the last 1.5 I took my gloves off and pushed my sleeves up.  Legs felt tired today and the run felt like it took forever, good to get a nice run on the books though.

Kind of a milestone today, since the end of January I've lost 30.8 lbs.

Nice weather continues this morning....got snowed on today for most of my run.  Tried to stay relaxed and just run today with the stiff N-NW wind added to the snow.  Doesn't get any better for January.

Nice moring but cold, I'm still cold after showering and getting to work.  Good run this morning I was going to run easy because I feel tired but I ended up running a pretty good pace for me.  I wasn't really thinking just running, feel great now so must have been what I needed.

Good hard workout today and a plus was no rain or wind it was nice.  About a medium pace for me today which is good because last time I ran 10 it was at an easy pace.  Feel a little tired and worn out which is just about right.

Really nasty storm rolled through last night, strong winds and a lot of rain.  That blew over and it was cloudy and cold this morning....what else is new.  Pretty strong wind from the NNW this morning.  Good run today, except for the wind, felt pretty good except for the last mile or so when my left quad got a little sore.

Rolled it out when I got home and it feels ok now.  It's nice to be running higher mileage for me and feeling good.

Another cold run this morning, temp was 33 when I left.  Good run though and a good workout today.  I felt tired with about .5 to go which probably means that I really did have a good workout.

Nice morning a little warmer than yesterday.  Still trying to run a little further each day this week and still feeling pretty good.  Good run again, nothing special today.

Out early and back early for a shorter run today so I could get my daughter to shool.  Wind was blowing pretty hard today made it not so fun.  Ended up pushing the pace even with the wind and still felt pretty good for a Friday.
