What a great morning for a run.  For November 1st to have temps at 38-40 blue skies we can't complain.  Nice run, although I was a little slow for the first half.  Don't really know why I was slow, I wasn't really paying attention to my watch.  The effort felt good though.

Another great morning, hopefully the weather holds out for the winter.  Felt tired today but had a good run.  Ran the Washington Terrace loop with a .1 addon to make 6 miles.  Pretty uneventful run this morning which is alright with me.

Great morning again.  Temps about 42-45, blue skies and no wind.  Can't ask for much better in November in Utah.  Good run today although my calves were tight for pretty much the whole run, hopefully that will stop.  No watch today just ran how I felt.

Had to get up a little early and cut my run a little short to get my daughter to school today.  What a great morning to run, temps lower 50s pretty good headwind this morning.  This week us runners have really been spoiled here in Utah with the weather.  Hope it keeps up.

Headed to Wendover tonight to see Bill Engval, looking forward to it. It's going to be great.

A lot cooler today than on Friday.  32 degrees but blue sky and no wind so not too bad.  My watch was way off today, as compared to normal.  By the half way point it was almost .1 short.  Just took it nice and easy today.

Right calf and shin sore after yesterday's run.  I don't know why but that's the way it was.  No run this morning.  Got home and decided to try an easy run on the treadmill.  Slathered my shin and calf up with tiger balm and hit it.  It felt ok, hopefully it feeels alright in the morning.

Looks like I may have to retire the Defyance 2's, the liner wore out on the right shoe and the heel cup is rubbing the side of my foot and it gave me a small sore.

Took yesterday off to rest my shin.  Just took it easy this morning and ran the W.T. loop after slathering up with Tiger Balm.  Feels okay so far......

Overcast morning but temps were mid 50's, can't beat that for the 12th of November.  Afraid the good stuff's over with though, storm rolling in today.

Still just taking it easy on the shin, still have some tightness and dull pain.  What a difference a few days makes, Thursday it was 50+ in the morning and today it was 21.  Cold, cold....hard to get out the door but felt okay for the run.  I had to break out the long pants and hat.

Took the last 2 days off to rest my shin, it got sore Monday night.  Wore a wrap this morning and just took it easy.  Felt good until about 1.75 to go and got some sharp pain, I think it was the wrap I used was too tight.  Feels ok now, just going to play it by ear.

Good run otherwise, temps around 28.

Cold run today, temp was around 27 but the wind was blowing pretty good.  Still fighting the shin problem, but it seemed to feel better today.  Hopefully I can get some more runs in this week.  Dog on the loose today but luckily it didn't want anything to do with me.

Hurray, I got to run 2 days in a row.  Shin felt better this morning, knock on wood.  Cold this morning, 23 with some wind.  No ice though, the sunshine yesterday took care of that.  Still a little cold, sitting here at work at 11:06 and I'm still wearing my jacket. 

Had to run early this morning to get to work early.  Christmas visit with the executives, even though it's not Thanksgiving yet.....

Took yesterday off to rest my shin.  I can feel it on toe off so I'm not really sure whats wrong but it's getting better, slowly.  Good run today got to sleep in and run a little late.  Temps were good, 27 to start 32 when I finished.  Had to push my sleeves up.

Ran by Ogden Regional Hospital today, lots of cars looks like a good turnout for the 5k today.

Still some soreness in my shin so I'm not pushing it.  Good run today, can't really complain about temps in the upper 20's.  Although I'd take 45-55 in a heartbeat.  Still have some twinges in my shin, hopefully I can run a little more this week.  Had a little dog chase me for a couple of houses today, no threat I could tell it just wanted to bark at me.
