Still trying to recover from walking pneumonia.  This has been a tough one.  Finally felt like I wanted to be a runner again today.  Decided to try a short easy one today.  Not good but not too bad either.  I think I'll survive this.  A word of advice...don't catch this, it REALLY kicked my butt.

Very slow, very exhausted miles today.  I have no strength yet, lungs are probably 60-70% but I feel like I need to be a runner again.  First time in over a week that I've felt like running.

Slow grinder today, I'm still lacking energy and coughing too much.

Nice morning...I wish I could start feeling a little better.  I guess the fact that I'm out 2 days in a row is a good sign.  Still slow and slugish, coughing away.

Good run on my day off.  Got up early so I didn't have any excuses today.  Feeling better but I'm still maybe 75-80%.  How can the human body produce soooo much snot?

Maybe a light at the end of the tunnel this morning.  While not great, I did feel slightly better.  Less coughing and I caught a little bit of a second wind at about 6 miles or so.

I didn't want to get out of bed this morning, I was ever sooo close to rolling over and sleeping some more.  I think the only thing that got me out the door was my thermometer, it read 41.  Great morning, I felt both good and bad throughout the run today but glad I got out.  Did anybody else see the AWESOME sunrise...it was so red with the clouds through Weber Canyon.

Colder out today but the coughing while running was much less today so I'm happy with that progress.  I'm still fatigued a little but it's getting better although not as fast as I'd like.  Good run today even though I was ready to be done about 6 miles in.

So So run today, just didn't feel it.  Then to top it off at 3 miles the rain/snow started.  I got cold today because I underdressed and didn't plan on being wet.  I guess I've got to change gears and start thinking weather a little bit now....bummer.

Super nice morning and I felt pretty good today.  Ended up doing HMP for the last 4.25, first time I've even felt like running a little faster in 3 weeks. :)

Started out good then about 3.5 miles in the snow started. Had to break out my 2nd set of light gloves because my wimpy hands got cold.

Took Friday off, we were at University of Great Falls on a campus visit for my daughter.  She got offered a really nice scholarship to play soccer, I'm sooo proud of her.

Anyway, nice run on a really good morning for late November.  I'm not really sure what the difference is between the Kinvara 5 A/B pairs but I definately like the A pair better, no doubt.

I was cold this morning.  Of course I tried to be tough and wear shorts but I guess I'm not tough enough for that.  I'm usually ok around 28-29 degrees for shorts.  At one point my thumb started hurting so I had to tuck it into my fist, what's up with that?  I feel like a big wuss.  Now I'm sitting at my desk with a hot chocolate and a jacket and I'm still cold.

Slowly getting back to normal after being sick.  I'm probably about 90% now generally.  Good run on this Turkey Day, they're always good because there's no traffic and it's quiet and enjoyable.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Post Thanksgiving daze run this morning, but it was all made better when Riviera Paradise by Stevie Ray Vaughn came on the old iPod.  Great song to relax to during a good run on a quiet morning.
