Most the main roads I ran on had the shoulders clear.  I'm not use to running 3 days in a row, the legs are a little stiff.  A Great way to start off the new year.

It's always nice to get out and hit the road once you can kick yourself out the door.

Some weights, 5 min. on bike and two mile run on treadmill in 14:15. 

The two mile run seems to be getting harder each time.  I must be getting slowly out of shape, or maybe it's the weight gain, or maybe to much candy and icecream, or maybe it's the winter blues or maybe I'm getting older and slower each day.

That gets me to double digit miles for the week so I don't have to run Saturday.

Did some weights, 5 min. on the bike and 2 miles on the dreadmill.  The same 2 mile workout in 14:15 keeps getting harder each time.  Those longer slower runs must help out.

I hope some of the weights I'm lifting helps a little with the upcoming running season.  Some weigths, 5 min. on bike, 2 miles in 15 min. on the treadmill.

Had a good run, kept the pace going but not to hard because I had a ward ball game at 9AM.  The run was a good warmup because I scored about 16 points and helped our team to a win!

I think I got enough miles this week to equal Tom's long run.  When the snow melts I'm going to have to change that strategy.

When I don't run outside much, going out feels extra good.  About half way through I noticed I was breathing in or out every step and feeling a little tired at a 7:30 pace so I slowed it down just a tiny bit to about a 7:40 pace and slowed my breathing to 2 in 1 out and that help.

Noon run, Sunny, Temp 35'

I felt good today, I actually got enough sleep last night and yesterday was a rest day.  Anyway I was moving along the first couple miles at 7:20's thinking that I was going a little faster than I really needed to and then I spotted this white haired guy a 150 yards up the trail that was moving pretty fast.  The race instinct kicked in and I passed him after awhile.  He then stayed close to me so I picked it up a little more until I couldn't hear him.  By then it was to late and I just kept going fast.  The last mile was pretty tough.  Definately a good workout for January.

Yesterdays run flared up the tendon-bum-itis.  At least I can still run.

I was hoping the sun would make an appearance but the clouds won out.  Another run where I pushed it.

Just wanted to run fast enough to beat Mr. 8. 

I didn't run yesterday because the night before my heart was beating irregular for about 20 minutes.  It may sound strange to those that think I'm heartless, but it was a little scary.  I'm going to see the Doc today and see if he can make any sense of it.

The Doc said I seem to be very healthy.  They hooked me up and did a EKG? and it showed I have a low heart rate and a strong beat.  So I ran hard today.  The 1st mile was in 7:32 and then I was warmed up and really pushed the pace.

I felt good today.  In January I did a higher % of faster miles than I usually do, just because I'm enjoying it.  Not sure if it is a good idea or not.  No recovery runs but then again my mileage was low.  I'm pretty sure I couldn't keep this up if I increased the miles.
