Just chillin today getting back from Great Falls late last night.  Ended up running a pretty good tempo for the last 4.25 without really trying.  Must have felt better than I thought I did.

Tired, tired run this morning.  Barely got out the door.  I think the long weekend in Great Falls and driving caught up to me.  Felt warm this morning until I got to the top of Washington Terrace then like I hit a wall the temp probably dropped 10 degrees.  Weird but I'll take it.

PM: Easy run along the Bonneville Shoreline trail after work for a little relaxation and because I needed a little trail run.

A little cool out today was really nice, pretty much perfect.  Gotta break out of this tired thing, dragging again but run was good and HMP today.

PM - Another nice run on the BST above Weber State.  It was so nice last night I had to do it again.

Legs are pretty wiped out today so I tried to take it easy.  Nice morning, nothing too hard today.

Rainy day with some wind at times.  Lightning stayed off in the distance so that was good.  Ended up pretty wet as I finished and the rain quit.  Figures the rain would quit when I got done...

PM: 4.9 Easy on the Riverdale Parkway with Brandon and Dave.  Good times.

Tired legs for a good run.  Overall pace was better than I thought it would be so that's good.  Stupid construction on Adams by the hospital is a pain they have completely removed the sidewalk on the west side and on the east side there's a sign that says sidewalk closed.  Right....I so ignore that.

PM: 4 Easy on the BST above Weber State.  Good for the state of mind.

Great run this morning, didn't think it would be that great because I had a hard time getting to sleep.  Cool this morning, definately a touch of fall.  I whimped out and wore light gloves for the first 8 or so until the sun came up.

Perfect run up the Skyline trail from wind surfer beach to the 4 mile post with Oreo.  Thanks for the invite.  Perfect morning, trail was great.  Oreo was in beast mode chewing up that trail just tried to hang on for a nice ride.

Almost rolled back over for more sleep this morning. Got out of bed and had a pretty decent run this morning.  Started out kinda slow then picked it up down in South Weber and back into Riverdale.

PM - 5 with Oreo, Brandon, Jesse, and Sharee from work on the Riverdale parkway.  Good run a little warm but great company.

Nice run this morning, wanted to go nice and easy but that didn't happen.  If I don't think about going easy I end up running harder and that happened this morning.

PM - Nice run with Oreo, Scott, Brandon, and Doug on the Riverdale parkway after work.  Really hot sweatfest and Oreo kicked my butt pushing the pace.  Good workout though, no complaints.

Not a good night, couldn't get to sleep until 12:30-1 this morning.  So it was really tough to get up this morning.  Run went well, felt tired but pace was my best all week.  Maybe I should stop sleeping...

Nice warm run on the North Ogden pipeline trail with Brandon over to the elk farm and back.  Got a treat when the elk started bugleing kinda neat.  Good run, better company...thanks Brandon.

Tired run today, that seems to be the theme of late.  Doesn't really seem to be affecting my pace though so who knows.  12.5 miles in I'm cruising along and a white poodle starts chasing me.  I stop to let the owner get it, I turn to stop and look at it and the dog has a blue mohawk.  What's up with that, a white poodle with a blue mohawk chasing me.

PM - 4 on the Riverdale parkway with Brandon, Doug, Scott, Jesse, and Jared from work.  Good times.

Donated blood yesterday so no run.  Great run this morning although a little tired in the legs.  Love running this time of year.

PM - After work sweatfest, windfest on the BST above Weber State.  Still great to get out to clear the head after work.

Afternoon cruiser to try and run off some bad mojo today.  Kinda worked, running is my saving grace some days.
