Wimped out and ran on the treadmill today and watched an american cinematic classic, Smokey and the Bandit.  Not a critically good movie but an entertaining movie.  Started to get a little bit of a blister on my left foot and have a little bit of nipple chafe.  I just LOVE the treadmill.

Ran 5 miles straight and then added the extra 2 miles in 1 mile increments.  It's completely mental on my part, I just couldn't run 2 more miles watching the time tick off but 2 X 1 miles was okay.  Weird but I got it done.

6" of snow and still snowing plus pretty windy outside equals treadmill run.  5.11 uneventful treadmill miles this morning.  Not much more to say.

Well, again stuck on the TM.  11 Degrees out and light snow so no outside run today.  Watched Rat Race today, funny movie if you haven't seen it.

Just another TM run not very exciting.  Good news is that my shin is feeling pretty good this week.

3 degrees this morning and the roads are still snow packed and icy since the high has only been 20 all week the snow won't melt.  No running outside so back on the TM.  Again just a TM run nothing special I got it done.  Watched Batman, The Dark Knight this morning.

On the TM once again, looking forward to the 'warm' up this weekend into the 30's.  Watched WALL-E today.  Played the mental game again, ran 4 miles without looking down at the time and then ran 1 mile to finish it up.  It seems easier that way even though I know it's all in my head.
