Great run with my daughter up in Island Park.  The temp was amazing after running in the heat all summer.  Had to dodge some cows but other than that a nice cruiser.

Another great run up in Island Park with the nice cool temps.  What a treat to run up there in the nice scenery and have the great temps.  Had some absolute great overlooks of Henry's Lake and of course more cow dodging.  You never know what they're going to do, I've never had any problems with them.  They just stare at you chewing their grass.

Nice run this morning back home.  Aside from all the school traffic pretty uneventful.  Legs felt a little tired today.

Took a 3 mile brisk walk with my wife on Saturday and ever since my shins have been a little tight.  Whatever...so I was a little worried about the run this morning but alls well and I had a great run on a perfect morning.

Up really early so I could get down to SLC for an Oracle users group thing.  Soooo I was a little tired during the run this morning in the dark.  I felt clunky and slow today on tired legs.  Good to get this one done.

Nice run down through South Weber on a perfectly cool morning.  Wow it felt great out today.  Legs still a little tired, ready for a couple of days off this weekend.

Really warm and a little humid out today.  So not the best of runs but no complaints.  This Monday potty stop thing needs to stop though, .5 detour back home.

1st 4.25 of the run went great no problems.  Took a small drink break, turned around and started running.  Immediately felt like I got hit in the back right below my shoulder blades on both sides.  It really hurt and I had a hard time even breathing.  Tried to run through it but only made it to 5.5 and I had to call my daughter to come pick me up.  I couldn't run, now I'm really bummed.  Doctor said it's a muscle strain, so I guess it could have been worse but I think I'm taking the rest of the week off.

Getting a little stir crazy so I decided to try an easy run on the TM this morning.  No problems and my back feels good.  I'm going to try and take it easy so I don't re-injure myself.

After yesterday's run I decided to go outside for an easy one today.  Great run on a nice morning with no back issues.

Great run on a perfect morning down through South Weber.  A little worried that my back issue would pop up again but alls well.  I was talking to some biking friends the other day and they were complaining how its too cold in the mornings to ride now.  It's about perfect for runners.  Now to enjoy some chocolate milk.

With the horrid smoky air outside, weatherman says its a red air day.  I decided to hit the TM today.  I'd forgotten what a mental test that is.  Grinded through the run watching some Flight of the Conchords and some Hangover 2.  Even with something decent on TV this was still mentally tough. 

Now I just feel off like somethings not right, I'm not hurt or anything just not sure whats up.

Enough of the smoke cleared so that I could see the mountains and drop it to a yellow air alert day so I hit it outside.  Nice run with great temps.  Good effort and a nice pace today.  I feel much better today after yesterday's TM run.

Great run this morning, didn't worry about anything but being outside.  Just a run to enjoy running and the nice weather.

Another great run down through South Weber.  I'm just running not thinking about pace and trying to keep my form as good as it gets.

PM - After dinner 4.7 miles easy, what a nice evening.

The smoke is gone and it was a great morning for a run.  It's supposed to rain but it held off was well.  Nice run today and pretty uneventful so pretty perfect.  Now I get a little recovery chocolate milk, it's as good an excuse as any for some chocolate milk.

Rainy and dark this morning.  Light rain for the first 5 miles then it picked up for the next 2.5 and then the last 1 was a really light sprinkle.  Not too bad this morning and I had a good run aside from being wet.

Very tired this morning but got up and out the door for a good run today.  It's so nice running this time of year especially knowing what's coming.

Another great run down through South Weber.  Temps great, I could see my breath at about 8.5 in behind the Wal-Mart in Riverdale by the river.  First time in a while for that.  Felt as good as I've felt all week just in time for the weekend.
