What a great morning, until about 4.5 miles when the wind started just in time for me to go 2 miles up hill into it through Washington Terrace.  Anyway still had a good run this morning cruisin for half marathon Monday.  Just enjoying running right now.

Ok, crappy run today but it wasn't the run so much as the weather.  I started at there was a light to medium rain.  I figured I could deal with that and for 4.5 miles no problem.  Then it started dumping, it was raining hard and I had 4 miles to go.  I made it 1 mile and ran into a Maverick completely soaked to get a plastic bag to put my phone in and the lady gave me a strange look and I told her 'Yeah, I'm insane'.  Anyway made it home, rain continued for the rest of the run.  I can't say that I was thinking I should have run on the  TM though.

Half marathon monday feelin good today, although tired because I didn't sleep real well.  Got rained on again but this time just a light sprinkle for about 3 miles or so, not bad compared to Friday.

Good hard run today, I'd call it a 10 mile tempo.  Didn't have a plan just started running and realized I was pushing it a little after about 2 miles and just stuck with it.  I feel good and it was good to get a nice long tempo in without really thinking about it.

10 rainy miles this morning.  Rained semi hard for about 2 miles and then lightened up so no biggie.  Took it easy this morning after yesterday's hard effort.  Felt good today even in the rain.

Nice run on a great morning, hopefully the rest of the day goes as well.  Pretty good pace again today and I was trying to go easy.  All running days should be like this.

Got a little lucky for a change and actually got a weather window to run in instead of getting hit by the worst of it.  Good run this morning.

Nice morning today for a nice first run of the year down through South Weber.  I like to run that route just not during the winter because South Weber Drive has no shoulder with lots of curves.

Set out for my normal Tuesday 8.5 and ended up doing 12.5.  Just felt like running further today.  Now my legs are tired but a good tired.

Easy run on a nice morning.  Needed an easy morning after the last 2 so this was good just to loosen up this morning.

Great run on an awesome morning.  Tempo'd the last 4.25 or so that felt good as well.  I feel now like I had a good workout, I'm not sore but just the good kinda worn out you get after a good hard run.  Is that a good way to describe it?
