52º with some sun. When to Beavercreek station and did 2 mile WU and then 13 at MP or better. Mile 4 was 6:54. Not sure why or how as there was no wind or hills, I just got lost in the run and it felt good. Rest were 7:28-7:40. 5 Mile cool down.

AM- 31º, crisp but no wind - very calm. 6 slow. Legs are tired. 

Afternoon- 51º and sunny. Bike path in Beavercreek. Skunk was out and active along the side. That makes me nervous in the middle of the day, but thankfully he was just far enough off the path to be avoided without incident. Easy run 7+.

AM- 35º with a brisk wind and heavy snow flurries. Chilly, 6 recovery miles. 

PM- 51º and sunny, and still windy. Much more plesant evening run. Explored a new section of bike path by Wright Patt AF base. Nice area to get some miles and some rolling hills. 8 easy.

AM- Early. 29°, cold wind. The classic. 10 Mile warm up and the intervals. 6x3 Minute intervals with 2 Minute active recoveries. Intervals were all in the 3:20s (6:40's pace). Frost built up on the old cap after those. My legs will be sore later as these always get me. Overall another pretty peaceful run and was out long enough to enjoy some sun rise action.

AM- 32°, 22º Wind chill, 14-16 mph wind and heavy flurries. Out early. Weather maybe not ideal, but peaceful easy run all the same (although I admit the wind in the face is distracting). Good morning. 

PM- TM (gym) 7 more.Last few miles fast-ish again. Good day at work with surprisingly few distractions.
