Kinda pumped today, first 60 miles in a 5 day span for me.  Felt good today.

What a grinder today, the warm morning really zapped all my energy.  Got through it but I still feel a little zapped.

Nice run this morning with a lot of other runners out, at least compared to normal for me.  Probably 7 or so other runners.  Nice coolish breeze from the west, northwest felt good.  Still not sold on these new shoes yet, hopefully they break in a little better.

Had to run with gloves on this morning, it's June what's up with that.  Aside from the gloves, good run this morning.  Hadn't had a chance to blog it until tonight because today was absolutely crazy at work.

Bad week for afternoon runs, tuesday rain and wind, wednesday working, thursday party so I added 1.5 this moring.  Good run in the nice cool morning.  Decided to be "tough" this morning and not wear gloves.  Interesting weirdness about me...when I don't wear gloves I tend to tuck my thumbs in behind my fingers when I'm not thinking about it I don't do this when I wear gloves.

Another nice uneventful run this morning.  Boring and just how I like it.

Let's call it a restore my sanity run this morning.  After about 35 hours of work on 2 big projects this weekend I needed some sanity.  Alarm went of at 5:30a, I rolled over and went back to sleep until 8:30.  Great run this morning.  I feel jet lagged after the lack of sleep.

PM - 4 easy, more sanity restoration. I've heard that exercise helps with jet lag as well.

Way too tired to get up in the morning. So....I had to take my daughter to the Dr. to finally get her cast removed at 2. Got home and decided to go for a run, WOW!  Not used to the heat.  It was only 85 but at 3PM on hot pavement this wiped me out.  Got home and had to help my wife mow the lawn, that took about 1:15 because we have a big yard.  I was useless for the rest of the night.

Made myself get up to run in the about perfect 56 degrees vs. 85 yesterday.  Felt much better today and had a great run.  Detoured an extra .5 through Rohmer park to see how the big Lacrosse demonstration for KUTV Channel 2 news was going, my son was helping out as an instructor and was quite excited to be on TV.

Great morning but I didn't have it today.  I'm still tired so this was a real grinder today.  Glad I got out though so let's catagorize this as a character builder.

Good run today a little warmer but nothing like Tuesday afternoons jaunt.  Had to add an extra .5 today to run around some contruction.  Now to try and do absolutely nothing this weekend after working all of last weekend.

Got up and got the lawn mowed and my wife decided she needed a nap...so I went for a nice easy run before it got too hot.  Great to be out.

Very warm outside for a nice death march.  Really wasn't that bad but it was a little too warm for my liking, especially since the sun hit me just after starting at 6:30.

 PM - 1.75 easy down to pickup my car.

This morning was soooooo much nicer, probably around 20 degrees cooler.  It was a real treat running this morning with the temps around 50.  Great run, except for the shoes.  The more I run in these the worse it seems to get.

Good run this morning although I was thinking while running that I seemed kinda slow today.  Got home and noticed the time and that I ran a much better pace than I thought so that was a good surprise. 

Detour through Rohmer park again to see how my daughters soccer conditioning was going.

Great run today I really felt good today.  Pretty uneventful otherwise, other than a lot of bike riders out this morning.

Ginder today, warm, warm south wind, and smoky.  Next to freezing wind, freezing temps some of my least favorite running conditions.  Glad I got out but I'm glad it's done.  Taking today off work so now to enjoy the day hanging with my wife.

Very thankful for the clouds this morning.  It was very warm and windy and the clouds saved me from a very tough run.  I was shaded for about 80% of the run today which was much better than running in the sun when it was 80 degrees at 6:45 this morning.

Didn't sleep well, weird dreams, and woke up with a headache.  It was 80 outside with a stiff warm southern breeze.  If that doesn't spell day off I don't know what does.

Much better night and a perfect morning.  Great run felt refreshing today with temps around 55.  Quite a change from the 80 yesterday.  Added the extra .5 through Rohmer park while my daughter was at Soccer conditioning.

Stupid smoke!  Good run today aside from the smoke pretty uneventful.  After yesterday I guess the days of the cool spring runs are over and now for the hot summer mornings.

New route today, yahoo!  I found a nice loop today instead of my normal out and back.  I ran up Washington Terrace and then down the Adams Ave. Parkway into South Weber, west on South Weber Drive(a little sketchy this road has NO shoulder) into Riverdale, onto River Drive, Riverdale Road over the viaduct and then back up 300W into Washington Terrace.  The only bad thing about this is the big hill back up into Washington Terrace at 10 miles into my run.  Wasn't real easy but not as hard as I thought it would be.
