Stayed up real late and slept in this morning.  Got in a few miles before New Year's activities with the family.

Nice day out today (38).  Nice easy run.  Felt good and glad to be outside.  Supposed to cool down next week so trying to get out as much as possible.

Taking Ashtin back to school today so didn't have a lot of time but was able to get in a few miles.  Felt good with a little tightness in right hip.

Another cold (4) and windy morning so back on the TM.  Just an easy run.  Right hip felt much better and no issues.

Very cold (-7) and windy this morning.  Thankful to have the option of running on the TM on days like this.  Nice easy run.  Just trying to get back to everyday running then build from there.

Warmer today (14) but still windy and the roads were snowy so another day on the TM.  Felt good today and just ran easy.

Another cold (0) morning so off to the TM.  I had planned to run 6 today but my calf tied up around 4 miles and I had to stop before I hurt it more.  Hopefully a little ice and massage will work it out.

My calf has really been hurting over the last few days but decided to give it a try today.  I was able to get in a mile without too much pain but started tightening up so I didn't go further.

Tried running again today but same issue as yesterday.  I am going to have to take some time off to get this healed.

After taking a week off to let my calf heal I tried it again today and seemed to be much better.  It was a little tinder but it didn't tighten up like before.  I am going to continue to baby for a few more days and then hopefully I can get back to normal.

I was able to get in two consective days on the calf without any problems so hope that I can continue on as normal from here.  I will try to get back up the mileage more next week.  I think my problem has been a change in shoes.  I had great success in the past with the shoes I was using but changed a couple of years ago and I have been having problems ever since.  I am going back to more traditional shoes and see how that works.

Felt much better today.  No tightness or soreness in the calf.  Hopefully, I have put this one behind me.

Cold out so ran on TM.  Had a breaker blow on my TM so had to stop early. Otherwise it was a pretty good run.
