My wife and daughter decided to go out for a run about 8 pm last night.  Thought I join them for a nice easy run, my wife is just starting to run and takes it pretty easy.  Well so much for a nice easy run, my daughter took off and I decided to stay with her and she killed me.  She's in great shape, plays soccer, and really pushed it.  I told her when we got back that she wiped me out, I think she liked that.  I'm really proud of her, she's a great girl.

Great run though, nice to get a good hard run in.

Got out for a run this morning to see how I would respond after last nights hard run.  I felt pretty good until about 1.25 miles to go then I got tired.  I think the heat, 65 degrees, and humidity didn't help.  I'm not acclimated yet.

Well I think the Max Moto's are about dead.  Especially for anything over 5 miles.  Good run this morning even though I almost didn't make it out the door.  Pretty tired this morning especially my legs.  Just tried to keep it easy this morning and I felt much better than I thought I would.

Some great songs to run to this morning, Johnny Lang and Stevie Ray Vaughan.  If you like some blues you can't go wrong.

Nice morning, but where did all the wind come from?  Had a good run this morning felt great, I think I'm starting to acclimate to the weather.  Kinda funny, this morning I'm searching out the shade and a couple of months ago I was trying to get in the sun to soak up some heat. 

Good start to the week.

Great run this morning, temps were about 10 degrees cooler and no wind.  Ran an easy 6.35 and didn't try to push it too much.  Ran the Washington Terrace loop, haven't run that in a few weeks it was good for a change.

Some great Stevie Ray Vaughn, Peter Gabriel, and Miles Davis for the run today.

Tired run today, my legs were just blah.  Warm, cloudy and a little muggy.  Just trugged through it today.  Still feeling a little blah a couple of hours later so hopefully I can snap out of it.

Perfect morning for a run, upper 40's and cloudy with a slight breeze.  I felt really good today so I kept running and ended up with 10.75.  Could have gone 13 but I ran out of time.  It's nice to have a day like this were it feels like you can run and run and feel great.

Another good run this morning, I hope I continue to feel pretty good.  Got to the halfway point and noticed that I forgot my water bottle, crap....  Started getting thirsty with about 1.5 miles to go but I made it ok.

Good 80's hair band song this morning, Summertime Girls by Y&T.  In addition the random play on the Ipod played a lot of Beatles which is ok by me.  Getting excited to see Paul McCartney in SLC in a month.....

Didn't sleep very well, my son and a couple of his friends got a little noisy at about 11:30 and I couldn't get back to sleep.  Woke up pretty tired with a headache.

Decided to get out the door, sometimes running helps a headache.  It seems to have worked today, no headache anymore.  Run went well, can't complain.  At least there weren't any dogs loose today, last 2 runs I've run into a loose dog.  Luckily they weren't real interested in me.  I did get harrassed by a black bird this morning, kept buzzing my head while I was running through a park.  It's really irritating.

What's up it was 41 degrees this morning on the 17th of June.  It was nice to run in the cool with blue skies and no wind.  Quite a change from yesterdays 70 mph gusts.

Felt pretty good today, 10 miles was about what I had in me.  I started feeling a little tired with about a mile to go.

Perfect temps, 48, and nice blue skies with sun this morning.  The only bad part is a very aggressive black bird up by Bonneville high that keeps buzzing me as I run through there.  I've been buzzed by these birds before in South Ogden but never this aggressively.

Anyway aside from the bird, good sorta recovery run after yesterday.  Felt a little stiff in the groin area this morning but that loosened up by .25.  Just a nice easy cruiser today.

Great morning for a run pretty perfect.  The breeze only made it nicer.  Got 9.5 in this morning without any dogs or birds bothering me.  I guess it should be considered a good morning.

Great morning again, ran the Washington Terrace loop.  I did modify my route slightly to avoid the bird attacking me, that worked out pretty good.  No bird attack this morning.

A tired 8.5 this morning.  My legs felt pretty dead, especially with about 2 miles to go.  A little warmer this morning, around 60 but a great morning.  Got home turned the hose on and ran it on my legs for a few minutes, it seems to have helped my legs feel a little better.

Just found out the US soccer team beat Algeria 1-0 by an extra time goal by Donovan to advance to the world cup finals, go US!!!!!

Woke up tired again this morning.  Had a good 7.5 hours of sleep, guess I need some more.  Just took it easy today, good run.  Nothing too eventful.  Lots of F-16's landing this morning as I was running on the south end of Washington Terrace, kinda cool to see them land.

Got invited to golf this morning early before work, so I made the executive decision to skip the run.  Walked 9 holes carrying my clubs so I got some exerecise in.

Fairly hot this morning, 75-80 during my run.   A little warm for me and I kinda paid the price.  With about 3 miles to go I was pretty much done.  Tough run because of the heat, may not be hot for everybody but for me it was.  Glad I got through it though, what doesn't kill me makes me stronger.

Got home rolled up my shorts and ran the hose on my legs for about 5 minutes.  That really helps if you don't have access to a river or enough ice for an ice bath.
