Philadelphia, PA:  Traveled yesterday to DC first then took the train to Philly after a full day of meetings so no time to run. I ran on the TM at the hotel this morning and was so tired.  My legs felt like they weighed 100 lbs each.  Just had no energy and it felt hard the whole way.  Decided to stop after 4 miles since it was not getting any better.  Not sure what is going on.  Could be from all the travel lately but will try again in the morning and hopefully it will be better.

Philadelphia, PA:  Ran on the TM again this morning.  Still felt sluggish.  I am not sure why.  It was really warm in the workout room so that could be a factor.  Also, I think I found out today that the TM was not calibrated correctly.  For the pace it said I was going it seemed really hard.  I also noticed that the one next to me was going much slower even though we were supposed to be running the same pace.  Anyway glad to get in the miles and the run but more glad that I will be heading home and looking forward to getting outside.

It was a cool day but felt good and had an easy run.  I am just way too inconsistent right now.  I need to get back into a good routine.  Just been crazy with work and a lot of family activities which I wouldn't trade for anything.  The main thing I need to work on is getting to bed earlier and getting up earlier to squeeze in more running.
