Haven't been keeping up with the blog for awhile so thought I would get back in the habit.  After some up and down running I am trying to be more consistent and build back up.  It was a nice morning today and just got in a few miles before church.  Felt pretty good and ran easy.

Got a break in the rain and only had a few sprinkles to deal with.  Felt pretty good and ran easy as I am trying to build my base back up. Feeling pretty slow right now.

Starting to warm up (69) and a little more humid.  Felt good this morning and just ran easy.  Still working on building back up.  My goal now is to get back to running 6 days a week and then start building the miles from there.  Maybe next week will be my first full week running.

Warm (70) and more humid today.  Felt a little sluggish today but pretty good.  Just nice and easy.  Have a little pain in the hip so need to keep an eye on that and stretch good to make sure it doesn't turn into a problem.

I got out late this morning so it was warmer (76) and humid.  Just took it easy because of that and cut it a little short.  Summer has definitely kicked in.

It was rainy again this morning but was able to get my run in without getting wet.  Felt pretty good today.  Just continuing to run easy and get back to a full week of running.

Another rainy morning so ran on the TM.  Just another easy morning.  Did some core and body weight exercises after running.

Another rainy morning.  I think it might be time to start building an ark.  Ran on the TM and just took it easy.  Pretty good week so far and the body seems to be holding out ok.  Need to get another run in tomorrow for my first full week of running in a long time.

Warm (72) and humid this morning but at least no rain.  Glad to get my first full week of running in.  It has probably been over a year since I ran 6 days in a row.  Mileage not up where I want but glad to get back to my normal schedule.  Now just need to build the miles up from here.  Had to leave early to go out of town so not a long run but got it in.

Warm (72) and humid this morning.  I was tired getting going today but felt better as I went along.  Did 4 x 100m strides after.

Very warm (77) and humid this morning.  Luckily it was cloudy and windy so that made it feel a little better.  Felt pretty good this morning and glad to be able to build up the miles.

Huntsville, AL:  Staying a new hotel and didn't map out a running route so just ran on hotel TM.  Nothing special just trying to get in the miles.

Misty rain and cool (65).  It started raining hard so ran back to house and finished on the TM.  Half outside half inside.  Felt pretty good this morning.
