Didn't sleep really well again last night, I need a good one tonight.  Aside from that, what an awesome morning especially for the 1st of Nov.  Short sleeve shirt and shorts and I felt good enough, surprise, to add 2.5 miles to my normal 8.5 today.

Completely wiped today both pyshically and mentally so why not go 11 miles.  Easy jaunt this morning, plan was for 10 but I talked myself into adding Rohmer park and Joe's Pizza extensions for 11.  Now my legs are complete toast and I need a nap but here I am at work and no nap.  Bummer!

Nice Monday morning run down through South Weber.  Great morning, pretty uneventful otherwise.

The usual Tuesday run up into South Ogden.  Stupid South Ogden Jr. High traffic just makes things difficult.

I decided to run Friday's run today and today's run tomorrow because of the weather on Friday.  That way if I get stuck on the TM I'll only do 8.5.  Great run until about 8.5 then my legs got tired and were pretty hammered by the end.  Feeling ok now so I'm recovering well and I ate a nice bowl of oatmeal so that should help.

And now the end is near....Awesome morning at 50 degrees made for a great run.  A little windy at the top of Washington Terrace but no complaints.  If we're to beleive the weatherman I think the nice fall is done.

Sweatfest today on the TM, then at 4 miles in on the hardest uphill spot the snow killed the reception on my dish....NEAT!  Finished off the 10k went out and cleaned the dish and then reset for the last 2.25.  Good run today, set the speed at 7 and cruised until the last 5 minutes when I clicked it up to 7.2.

Day off so I went for a little longer run today, normal route down through South Weber and then I cut up Ritter Dr in Riverdale, man that is one steep mother.  Across by work and then down 4400 and back to Riverdale road and up 300 W into the Terrace.  Kind of a Rim to Rim to Rim run in Riverdale today.  Legs are tired now.

No run yesterday, I twisted wrong trying to get a drink in bed and hurt my back again.  Ended up trying to sleep in my chair.  So a couple of muscle relaxers, no run yesterday, and a good nights sleep and I feel much better today.

Good run today, just cruisin trying to relax and not hurt myself.  Mission accomplished.

Tired today I was up late, well for me anyway, until around 11:30 with some work problems.  I was able to drag myself out of bed and got out the door.  Good run otherwise and I ended up pushing the last 4 miles pretty good.

What was supposed to be a normal 10 miler turned into a 10 mile tempo this morning.  I wasn't really thinking about anything and got to about 2 miles and noticed that I seemed to be pushing pace, even on the uphill.  So at that point I went for it, I feel really good now and worn out like I should so a good workout today.

Half-marathon Monday on a great November 19th.  Temps in the lower to mid 40's, super nice.  Great run didn't push anything just took it easy today.

Good run today although I don't know how my nose could run anymore that it has the last few weeks.  Anyway I'm cruising down Ridgeline in Washington Terrace and there's a chicken hangin in somebody's front yard.  So over the last month I've seen a rabbit and a chicken just hangin in the neighborhood.

Great run on an awesome morning.  Pretty uneventful otherwise.  Got home and decided to mow the leaves up around the 1 tree I have that is the slowest tree ever to loose it's leaves.  I've mowed it 4 times and it's still got probably half it's leaves to drop.  It's supposed to get windy this afternoon so I thought get them up before they blow everywhere so the wind can blow the rest of the them off the tree and make a mess anyway.

Great morning for a nice run.  Thanksgiving and nobody was out and there wasn't much traffic either made for a quiet run, aside from the 3 loose dogs in the first .5.  They didn't really come after me too aggressive so it's all good.

Cold out this morning but a good run.  Got about 4 miles in and got a call from work so I had to stop for 10-15 minutes and it got really really cold.

So so run today, nothing really to do with the run itself though.  Had to detour home at 2 and 4 miles today for pit stops.  So overall kinda sluggish today because of the starting and stopping going from the warm house to the cold outside.

Good cold run today, pretty uneventful.  I felt slow and clunky today.

Awesome morning, the full moon setting in the west and the colorful sunrise made it worth getting out today.  I ended up over dressing a little, it was 31 at my house but at the top of Washington Terrace it was 42.  Quite a temp jump in 2 miles, ended up pushing up my sleeves and taking my gloves off.  No complaints though...

Not much sleep last night after getting woke up with a work alert.  Then up early to get to work early.  Tired, tired run this morning made worse by having to detour for a pit stop.  Now I need sleep.
