Didn't sleep really well last night so the 7.5 is laying in bed with my eyes closed.  I probably got about 5.5 hours overall.  Very cold outside and some wind coming out of the canyon, wind chills were below zero so I hit the TM this morning.  My left shin and the top of my foot are feeling tight.  It started on the TM run on Saturday.  Doesn't seem to bother me at any time but on the TM.  5.1 Miles at 1% incline.

What is it about running on a TM...I get to around 30 minutes and I'm just done.  Snowed last night and started again this morning.  The roads were a mess so back to the TM.  5.1 miles at 1% incline.

Long story short I only had about a half an hour to run this morning.  Roads were still a mess from the storm so I hit the TM.  Now my left heel and achilles is sore, probably from compensating for the sore left shin so it probably didn't hurt that I had to cut it short today.  3.1 miles at 1% incline.

Time: 28:00

Nice easy run tonight on the TM.  Decided to get a little more mileage in so I just took it easy.  3.2 miles at 1% incline.

Car still in the shop so after taking my wife to work I only had 1/2 hour to run before my daughter had to be to school.  At least I got a run in outside.  It was great to be outside the weather needs to start cooperating for us runners.  Pretty stiff headwind this morning for the uphill portion slowed me down.
