Noon run, sunny, low wind, temp 80'

Today I felt like I want to feel before any race.  My energy was up and my legs were loose.  Unfortunately, the cold that a few of my kids have had and my wife currently has, finally got me so I ran easy today.  Any theories on getting rid of colds quickly and how much to run durring a cold?

Miles by month

JAN   30,  -  FEB   60,  -  MAR 105,  -  APR 165

165 miles in April is the most miles I've run in a month since 2003 when I was training for Boston.  I have good advice from Sasha to thank, and Ragnar Relay boys that asked me to be on their team to thank, and work slowing down just a bit and a good wife to thank.

Noon run, sunny, breezy, Temp 80'

The cold I caught Sunday gave me a runny nose on Monday and it's moved more towards a stuffy head on Tuesday.  I started out easy but after a couple of miles my head started to clear a little and I had to keep telling myself to slow down until the cold has on its way out.

Time 39:30  Mile Avg 7:45

I'm finally in a month were I have a race (Odgen 1/2 marathon) and I'll be able to see if any of this training is paying off.

I woke up this morning feeling crummy due to the cold I have.  Therefor, I thought I would go buy a pair of running shoes instead of jog at lunch, however, by about 10:00am I started feeling better so I ran at lunch instead.  I probably pushed it harder than I should for being in the middle of a cold but it felt good to push it a bit. 

I do need to get some new shoes.  The pair I have must have over 500 miles on them.

Noon run, rainy, windy, temp. 45'

I was overdressed for the run for the first 1.5 miles until it started to rain.  I was hoping to get in my run before it rained but no luck.  I picked up the pace so I could get out of the rain sooner.  The cold I've had the last couple of days isn't as bad today.  Hopefully, the cold is on its way out.

Noon run, cloudy, low wind, temp 50'

Since yesterday afternoon I've had a gut ache.  I have no idea what it is but I'm hoping I have to make a dash to the bathroom so the pain will go away. 

Today's run seemed to take a little more effort than it should have for the time I got.  I'm sure the cold I've had this week with the gut ache didn't help.  I've run a bunch of 5 mile runs this week as I've had the cold hoping that this will leave my body with plenty of cold fighting power.  I'll probably to 10 tomorrow as the cold seems to be quickly fading.

Morning Butterfield run, cloudy, windy, temp 39'

Had slight gut ache but not enough to effect my running.  This was my longest run of the year.  I didn't have quite as much energy as last week but it was a good run.
