Tired run this morning, legs felt heavy.  Still cold, I've decided January is my least favorite month.  16 Degrees this morning, I'm just happy with myself for getting out and running.  Still about 1 mile on straight ice due to the cold and unplowed roads.

January is in full force, cold again 17 degrees and the inversion is starting to kick in.  Just gotta LOVE January!  I felt a little tired again this morning, figured I just got to trudge through it.

Didn't feel as tired today just a little.  Still cold and hopefully the bad air holds off until this small storm rolls in Saturday.  16 Degrees and the news said it felt like 6 with the wind chill so I'm still going with the 5 shirts, 2 pants, heavy gloves, and hat trying to overdress slightly.

Good run this morning, just getting it done in the cold.  Slushy powerade in my bottle, yummy!

Out in the cold again, it was slightly warmer at 20 this morning so I shed a shirt before I left and only wore 4 today.  That was a mistake, the wind was blowing at the top of Washington Terrace and I got cold so I decided to run a little tempo to get done and hopefully warm up a little.  Ended up doing a 2.25 mile tempo at a hard effort, no watch so I don't know my splits.  Felt good and I warmed up a little.  Nothing like cold to motivate you into a Tempo run.
