Original plan was to go 9 this morning, but trying to break in the new shoes kind of changed the plan.  The shoes are fine I just need some adjustment time to get used to them so I cut it back to 8 this morning.  Good run, temps are pretty good for December it was about 37-38 this morning so I can't complain.

Alright let the whining begin.  I really, really, really didn't want to run this morning but I went anyway, not really a good run but I'm glad I went.  Pretty good head wind this morning, I could feel it in my legs....Back to the whining.  My time was pretty slow but I felt really tired and kind of like I was running in slow motion.

In Puerto Rico vacationing, we're going to spend the rest of the day at the beach in Fajardo called the Seven Seas beach.  No snorkling at this beach but we had fun playing in the water.  The ocean is pretty warm down here, warmer than the pool at the resort.

I could sure tell that I was running at sea level and I could also tell that I was running in 80 degree heat with humidity.  I had to go jump in the pool after to cool off, how rough is that?

Still in Puerto Rico, the weather today: high 85, low 74.  Spent yesterday at Old San Juan and we toured the  Bacardi factory.  Old San Juan was great, neat old buildings.  We went up to the old fort and walked around that was really neat.

Tomorrow we're going to take a ferry ride to Culebra.  If you're ever in Puerto Rico take the ferry over to Culebra and go to Flamenco Beach.  That is a great beach, nice white sand, turquoise water, snorkling.  The water was great, it must have been around 80-85.  We seen lots of fish snorkling, blue tangs, powder blue tangs, cow fish, nice corals, sea fans, a pretty big white Urchin.

Back home to the cold, brrrr.  After being in the 85 degree weather for a week it's tough to come back.  The Gran Melia resort in Puetro Rico was great, we had a good time.

Woke up late, tired from the trip and plane ride yesterday.  TM run this morning 1% incline.

Well, I've got to get out of the vacation groove so I got up this morning and ran.  Good run the effort felt good and my time was good for me, especially lately.  Maybe the vacation did some good.  Felt a little tired between 5-6 miles but I toughed it out, haha.  Looks like I had a pretty good run with negative splits for each mile.

Decided to get out for a run this morning because I'll probably take Thursday off.  So I decided to quit being such a wuss and hit the road outside.  Nice run this morning felt good to get outside again.  First half was a little slow because I haven't run up that hill for a week but I made up 42 seconds on my ave. pace on the second half.

I'm going to start by complaining about how bad Washington Terrace city is about plowing their roads, just horrible.  I've been running through there for 10 years and it hasn't gotten better for 10 years.

Really tough run this morning.  With the roads not really plowed very well it was like running on 1-2" of sandy snow this morning.  That really works out your calves and it really slowed me down.  Once I got up into South Ogden the roads were clean, imagine that.

Time:  1:09:30 (9:49 Pace)

Splits: 10:32, 10:52, 10:11, 9:42, 9:21, 9:14, 8:52, 0:42 (.1 Mile)

Quads are really sore from running in the sandy snow yesterday so I'm taking the day to rest.

Good run this morning, the roads are 100% better, still dodging ice but I'm not complaining.  Quads still slightly sore but the rest yesterday was just what they needed.
