Back to it after a long long long weekend in Island Park getting snowed on, rained on, and hailed on for 3 days straight.  Nice to be up there but tired of the weather.

Great morning actually got a little warm but I'm not complaining.  Decided on a little longer run this morning due to the long weekend off.  Felt great but got a little tired in the last .5 or so.

Lazy week running so I decided to hit another longer run today.  Felt good, temps were perfect.  Felt better than I did on Wednesday so that's a plus.

Got up and decided to get out for a run since it was such a nice morning.  7.5 not to worried about pace today.  Ran by 4 yard sales today I think that's a record for me.  A little stiff a couple hours after now that I'm sitting around.

First run in the new shoes and so far so good.  They are so light but they still have some pretty good cushioning.  Run was great plus the weather was nice.  Last 4 ran at 8 min avg. pace which I'm happy with.

Very nice morning out today, decided to run a little longer.  Felt good today and it's nice to have all the people out again and the trees green.  Ran across 2 broken sprinklers this morning flooding the gutters out.

Perfect temps this morning for a great run.  Legs felt a little tired but manageable.  Kinda a funny thing, I think so anyway, today.  A little dog in a fenced yard that always runs and barks at me came running across the yard to get to the fence today tripped and skidded on it's face for a foot or so.  Very funny!

These are my first pair of Kinvara's and so far they're great, love em.  Great run this morning.  Started out tired but after I got warmed up I pushed the pace and felt great.

Easy run on a perfect morning.  Seen lots of walkers and even 6 other runners this morning.  Must be the weather bringing everybody out.

Good start to the week with a little longer run.  Felt good today, the clouds started rolling in and gave me some nice shade for the second half.

Tired run this morning, my legs felt a little dead today.  Got warmed up and they felt a little better but not much.  Uneventful otherwise which is Ok with me.

Another uneventful nice run on a great morning.  What else can I say?

Stepped on a sticker last night on the ball of my foot.  Had to dig the spine out of my foot with tweezers and it was pretty sore last night.  The whole spine came out unbroken not sure why it's so sore.  Woke up this morning and it's still sore and seems swollen.  Thought I'd give running a try to see how it went.  A little pain but manageable.  Seems like running is better than walking pain wise.

Foot is still sore from the sticker.  If it doesn't start getting better I may have to go to the doctor to see if I left something in there, not real happy about that.  Cool morning for June 17th, 43 degrees today.  Felt good once I got warmed up and I was thinking this time of year I'm usually searching out the shade and this morning I was searching out the sunlight.

Plan was for 11.5 but I had to detour around some road construction so I ended up at 12.  Thought I was going to get bit today, a German Shepard came after me.  I saw it at the last second stopped, turned and yelled at it.  Then I yelled at the house that it came from until the owner came out and got it.  To top it off it was a police officer's house, you'd think they'd know better.

Pushed it today because I realized I had to be back to get my daughter to soccer conditioning.  Great run felt pretty good for pushing the pace.  Had to detour .5 miles around construction again so I was just a few minutes late but not too bad.

Nice and easy today after pushing it yesterday.  Good run, felt warm for the first time this year.  Right calf is tight, maybe the Nike's are finally done.

Warm this morning, got out a little early so I got more done before the sun popped up.  Good run had to push it again to get back to take my daughter to soccer conditioning.  Right calf still tight but didn't get any worse.

I was going to try for 10 miles today to make 50 for the week but I didn't really have the extra motivation so 8.5 it was.  Legs felt dead and mentally I was tired.  The week of the dog continues, a little white terrier came after me today. Had to stop and yell at it until it went away, people really need to keep control of their dogs.

Warm again the cool stretch is over, not complaining though.  Good run this morning uneventful which is good with me.  I'm a bit tired now and I have to work all day.

Very groggy this morning, I couldn't wake up.  Drug myself out the door early so I could get back to take my daughter to conditioning.  I don't think I really woke up until 2 miles in or so.  Very warm out this morning, even the breeze was warm not didn't really help.

Hot and windy today, even the wind was warm.  Just took it easy anything over 70, it was 77 in Ogden, kinda wipes me out, I know I'm a wimp.  Some strategically placed clouds provided shade for most of my run this morning making it a little better.

Cooler this morning made for a very nice run.  Wasn't out to push pace this morning but I ended up pushing it pretty good on the 2nd half.  Running a 10k on Saturday in Island Park with my daughter.  She's a little nervous about the distance but she'll do great.  She's conditioning for High School soccer and I thought a 10k would be good for her.
