Good hard run this morning.  Should have probably had a GU or something at 9 miles because my legs kinda bonked at about 11 miles but I pushed through it.  I'll have to remember to take something next time.  I think that was good for the workout bank to push through that tiredness at 11 miles.  It'll help coming out of the canyon or turning onto Grant at the end of the Ogden half.

Didn't expect this kind of workout after a late, fun night but it's all good.

Rainy morning...I'm a whimp.  But I was quite busy this morning as well folding some laundry.  10k on the Treadmill tonight, set it at 7.2 and cruised.

Ok run this morning, nothing wrong just one of those days.  It was really a great morning, temps in the mid 40s in December can't complain.  Tried to take it easy and not push it today, I think I need to save some strength for my next run.

Not very motivated today...hard to get out the door.  Had some dishes to take care of so I guess that was my motivation.  Set out for an easy cruiser but ended up hitting it in HMP. So Great run today on a super December morning.

Major headache all night and didn't feel well this morning so I bagged the run.  Decided to go for an after work cruiser and enjoy the nice weather.  Still had a headache.  Run was great felt good and my head survived.

Got out this morning, is this really December...  Anyway tried to take it easy after last night's run and Diet Coke delivery :).  Run was great I took a powergel at about 4.5 miles today that seemed to help.  I could probably take one at 8.75 when I turn around just for an extra kick.

Planned easy day...I made myself go nice and relaxed today.  Felt good although it felt freakin cold after being hot all night in bed.

Had some extra energy for some reason this morning so I had a nice hard workout.  Pushed the pace the whole way and ended up beating the 8 min guy.  Pretty much tempo'd the whole run.  Good for me...now I'm tired.

Had to get up early and run less due to and early work meeting.  Dark but 50 degrees this morning on the 12th of Dec.  I'll take that anyday.  Kinda slow and easy after yesterday's tough run plus I'm a little tired because I didn't sleep real well.

Last run in the Kinvara 6's.  Didn't like them at all very dissappointed.

Fun run with Brandon, Chad, and Ben from 21st St pond West.  A bit rainy but not bad.  Good company for a good easy run.

Knee a little iffy this morning so I decided to try and be smart and rest.  Holy cow I didn't think tonight would ever come today really dragged.  Got home and had to hop on the TM for a 10K.  That sucked, the run was OK just the TM was blah...

Tour de Terrace after work tonight.  Ended up pushing it pretty good, effort wise, and just edging out the 8:00 minute guy.  For some reason it was really a struggle tonight, every step.

Rainy run this morning but it was good to get out.  Right hammi is a little iffy so I didn't push it too much today.  I've been hitting the snooze button a few times as of late so I'm getting out a little later, no complaints though laying in a nice warm bed a few extra minutes is well worth it.

New trail to run today so that was exciting.  I ran up Washington Terrace and then down the Adams Parkway.  That's where the new trail starts, it hooks into the Weber River Parkway and goes back into Riverdale, from there back up into Washington Terrace.  Good trail, this is a nice new route and I'll run it more.

Late start again....couldn't get out of bed.  It was soo nice and warm this morning.

Brrr, holy freakin cold Batman....Ogden River Parkway with Brandon, Chad, and Ben.  Got there early to get a few more miles in, started at the Botanical Gardens are ran up to Rainbow Gardens.  Pretty good canyon wind and that's about the coldest I've ever been running.  Got about 5 in before the guys got there then ran 5.5 with them.  Good company and breakfast after was money...

Treadmill...not much more to say.  Watched some Top Gear re-runs this morning that made it much more bearable.  Looks like a TM week with the Artic air coming in and supposed to be windy on top of that.

Lazy this morning and with the temp at about 0 without wind chill I couldn't face another TM morning.  Got home from work and just got on the TM without thinking about it, ok not the best but never is on the TM but glad I got a run in.  Excited for tonight, going to be fun.
