Nice easy run today. It was 34 degrees with a very light wind. Nice day for a run. We have had rain for the last couple of days but luckly it stopped sometime in the night and was able to get out this morning with no rain. I felt real good today. It was one of those days where you feel like you could really push the pace but I kept it easy like the plan called for.

Today it was 42, windy with misty rain.  As I started out my legs felt very weak.  It is amazing to me how I felt so good yesterday but didn't feel good today after an easy 7 yesterday.  Anyway, I got into the run and it seemed to get better after a couple of miles so just settled into a nice easy pace.  I added 8 x 100 m strides on at the end of the run which went good.

Today I did the exact same run as yesterday. Same distance, same route. The amazing thing is I ran it within 2 seconds of yesterdays run. I was just out running at my normal easy pace and this it the result. The body is an amazing thing!

Today I felt pretty good through out the run. It was very relaxed and easy. I am taking this week to just run easy and establish a base mileage to build off. I plan on keeping the same mileage for a couple of weeks and then increasing from there.

I normally do my long run for the week on Sat but this weekend we are going out of town to visit family for Christmas and knew I wouldn't be able to get in a long run. I was able to get out this morning for my long run. The weather was 37 degrees, windy and misty rain.

I felt good starting out on the run. I tried to keep a conservitive pace for the first part. Around 8 miles I was heading straight back into the wind which was making me work harder. Around 10 miles my legs started to feel real tired. I am not sure if this was from the increased effort of the wind or the fact that I felt like I was running out of energy and needed some food. Could have been both. Anyway, I kept about the same pace and was glad to get the long run in the books this week.

I ran an easy 6 miler today. This is the first time that I have ran the day after a long run in quite awhile. Normally I run my long run on Sat then take Sun off. Since I ran my ran long yesterday I felt kind of stiff and tight the whole way. It was good to do back to back run because after I felt like it really loosened me up. The weather was 32 degrees and windy.

I was out of town today visiting my family for Christmas so I was very happy to get in the 8 miles today. I wasn't sure if I would be able to run this weekend but brought the running clothes just in case. I was able to get out while everyone was getting ready for the day. It was 37 degrees and windy. Also, since I was out of town I got to run more hills then usual so that made it even a better workout. I felt good today but the legs were a little tired toward the end. Probably the effects of my first 50 mile week in a couple of months!
