Happy New Year!  Last year was not much of a year from the running perspective.  Going to change that this year and get back to the routine.  Finally feeling better and glad to get in a run on the first day of the year.  Ran inside on the TM because still a lot of snow on the ground and not a good place to run.  Now going to have some fun with the family.

Still a lot of snow on the roads so stayed in on the TM.  Nothing special just trying to get back up to running daily without reinjuring the calf.  Going to err on the side of caution and hopefully not have another set back.

Got outside today.  It was cool (28) with some wind.  Felt good to get outside after several days on the TM.  Felt pretty good and pace wasn't bad but still a lot of building back up to do.  No problems with the calf so that was a good sign.

Pretty nice day today (31) with light wind. Just an easy run today.  Need to get back into the day to day routine so hopefully tomorrow I can keep it up.  No problems with the calf today so all is good.  Just one step at a time.

Nice day today temp in upper 30's and some wind.  I felt a little sluggish today but no problems with the calf.  Glad to get a couple of days in back to back.  Will keep building up.

Great day today with temp around 50 but a lot of wind.  Felt pretty good today.  No problems with the calf and feeling a little stronger each time out.  Plan is to get back to running 6 days a week then build up the miles again. Hopefully without a problem.

Another nice morning.  It was around 50, windy and very foggy.  Just ran in the neighborhood since I was afraid to get out on the roads with so much fog.  Felt good today and ran easy.

Huntsville, AL:  Having our sales meeting for the year and it has been all day events so haven't got any running in this week.  Today it was raining and cold so went to run on TM but they were all taken so did the elliptical for 30 minutes and will count it for 3 miles.  Good to do something.

Nice day out today. Temp in upper 30's and pretty windy.  Felt ok today and glad to get back to running.  I have been so hit and miss lately. Need to get into a normal routine. Between injuries, sickness and work it has been a tough couple of months.  Ready to get back on a positive run.

Nice day today.  Temp around 50 but very windy.  Felt a little tired today. Didn't sleep good last night so just kind of tired.  Glad to get a few miles in and try to string together a few runs.

Cold, snowy and windy today so ran on the TM. Just took it easy and picked it up gradually as I went along. Felt good and was a nice run.

Philadelphia, PA:  Had some time and was able to get in a quick run on the TM at the hotel.  Was not long after I ate so my stomach was acting up some.  Glad to get a run in and felt good other than the stomach.

Philadelphia, PA:  Cold and snowy here and didn't bring my cold gear so just ran on the TM.  Felt good today.  Started slow and picked it up the whole way.

Nice day today so was able to get outside. It was very windy but around 50.  Missed the last couple of days because of a college visit with my daughter and then felt bad yesterday.  Good to get back out.
