Chilly feeling 37 this morning but a great morning to run.  That temp is not bad at all to run in, wore a long sleeve shirt and gloves.  Felt really tired getting up but once I got out the door the run went well.

Hamstring has been a bit of a problem since Thursday so I took a couple of days off.  Felt a little bit of a twinge at 4.25 miles but it calmed down for the rest of my run.  Feels just slightly sore now, I'm just going to play it by ear and not push it and hurt myself. 7.27 Miles

Ran 2.15 miles after work while dinner was cooking on the treadmill.

Hamstring still causing some problems but I thought I'd give it a try today.  Slathered it up with Tiger Balm and ran.  Tried a new route today let's call it the Washington Terrace loop since I run around W.T.  Good run today I felt really good, although hamstring a bit twitchy.  I'm just not going to push it right now.

Had the day off so I slept in and ran late.  Nice easy run today after slathering up my hamstring with tiger balm.  Didn't push it too hard just a good run.

I've got a pretty good cold going since Monday night, felt like crap yesterday morning and today but I decided to try a run.  Sometimes it helps me feel a little better.  An easy 5.1 on the treadmill this morning since it was raining outside.  As far as making me feel better today I still feel the same so at least I don't feel any worse.  Although it would be hard to feel worse.

Cold subsided a little bit so I got out for a run this morning.  What a perfect morning, no clouds, or wind and perfect temp right around 45.  Felt pretty good today ran the Washington Terrace loop.  I'm liking this new route and no problem with the hammy today.

Rainy today, I got rained and sprinkled on for most of the run this morning.  It was warm, 57, and muggy as well.  Good run otherwise, still feeling some effects from the cold in my chest.  No watch I forgot to charge my battery and my Ipod battery died with 1.5 to go.  I need to get my act together and keep my stuff charged.

Raining again but pretty hard this morning so I hit the treadmill for 5.  What can I say it was a run on the treadmill.  Watched Kindergarten Cop during the run this morning.

No rain this morning so I got to go back outside for a nice run.  Good run this morning, just took it easy.  I can still feel some of the effects from my cold last week in my lungs.  Cooler this morning felt good after running inside on the treadmill yesterday.  I guess there is 1 good thing about running on a treadmill, it makes me really enjoy running outside.

Really nice morning for a run.  Temp was 47, which is perfect, and no wind.  Decided to go 7 today since I didn't have to take my daughter to school so I had some extra time.  Felt good today except my nose was running faster than I was.

Another good run today, felt good temps were good in the low 40s.  Ran the Washington Terrace loop again, that's a good run I like it.  Good week for me after the hamstring problem 2 weeks ago and getting a cold last week.

Cooler this morning had to wear long sleeves and gloves.  Good run, I felt pretty good today.  Trying to go a little earlier and it's really getting dark, bummer.  Hopefully I can sneak a run in tomorrow morning before the snow storm.

No run yesterday, it was snowing pretty hard and I didn't want to run on the treadmill.

Good run today although it was really cold especially on the 2nd half.  Wind was from the north today so I had it at my back for the 1st half.  Felt good today and had a good ave. pace for the run for me so I'm happy with that.  Not ready for this snow stuff, but then I'm never really ready.

Over slept this morning so I only had time for 3.2 on the treadmill.  Hopefully I can get some time for another 3 or so after work.

Got up and turned the weather on and they said a chance of light snow showers.  Well take away the chance, light, and showers and that leaves you with just SNOW.  Good run otherwise, had to keep my head down because the flakes kept hitting me in the eyes.  Still holding out and wearing shorts, haven't broke the pants out yet.  The long sleeve shirts and gloves have made their appearance though.
