I got a virus in my inner ear about 10 days ago and it messed by my balance and caused vertigo so I haven't been able to run for awhile.  Today I was almost back to normal.  They say it takes about two to three weeks to get over this but was feeling good today.  I was glad to be able to run again and didn't have too many issues along the way.  Going to try to keep running everyday as long as it continues to improve.  So thankful that everything is not spinning and thank God for the little things that can really effect your health.  Makes me realize how blessed I am.

Was feeling even better today so got out for a few miles.  It was a nice day (60) with some wind.  I felt good and the running seemed easy.  I didn't want to go overboard with the running as I am still trying to get completely over this virus.  Unfortunately, according to the Dr it is a slow recovery from the side effects but seem to be getting close to over it.  Hoping to be back to normal next week.

Nice morning today (54) with light wind.  I felt good this morning and just got in an easy run.  Just trying to get back in the the routine again.  Hopefully, can get back to normal next week.

Beautiful morning today.  It was around 60 and no wind.  I felt kind of tired this morning.  Played golf and walked last night so kind of tired from being on my feet so long.  I just took it easy and enjoyed the great morning.

Beautiful day this morning (58) with no wind.  I felt really good this morning and kept a pretty good pace the whole way.  It was one of those days where it would have been good to run fast but with no base right now I thought it better to just keep with the plan of getting the base back.

Huntsville, AL: Nice morning today about 60 with light wind.  I felt good today and just took it easy.  I drove down here yesterday and didn't have time to get in a run.  Nice to get back out there today.

Huntsville, AL:  Another nice morning with temps in upper 50's and light wind.  I was a little slow getting going this morning but once I got started it felt pretty good.  Still just getting in the miles and trying to get back on schedule.

Huntsville, AL:  Another nice morning down here (55, sunny).  I was dragging this morning.  It has been a long week with meetings until late at night and a lot of stress.  It is good to get out and release some of the stress but definitely wearing me out.

Sunny and 62 this morning.  I was still tired this morning.  Traveled back last night and it was just a long week.  I had wanted to go longer today but since I was tired just stayed with 5 and will try to increase next week.

It was a really nice morning with temps in the mid 50's and light wind.  I was dragging getting going this morning but once I got outside and running I felt pretty good.  Started off real easy and then got into the normal pace the rest of the way.

It was a nice morning today with temp around 60 and some light wind.  It is going to be a hot weekend so I guess summer is here early this year.  Been having a hard time lately getting motivated to run.  I have a lot of other stuff going on in my life and just have not put the focus on it that I should be.  I didn't run the last two days and just didn't feel like going out.  Hopefully I can get out of this funk and get back to running consistently.  I was kind of dragging this morning.  I didn't feel the best but was glad I got out and put the miles in.  Just try to take it a day at a time and get back in the groove.

Got out late today and it was very hot (88 and humid).  I was not ready for the heat and cut the run short.  I felt pretty good starting out but heat was rough.  Should have got out early today.
