44, heat wave! Picked it up for one mile- just testing the waters ever so slow. If these 20 go smooth, I get to try 30. :)

44 mild again. Slow miles but trying to build up nice and smooth. Mild quad pain (nerve), but otherwise good. See what the therapist says this week.

4 Mile.  Nice 43 degrees. Overall decent feeling. I notice I am running a bit stiff - almost waiting for that severe pain to hit. Thankfully it has not and hopefully I am far enough along in my therapy that it wont come back like that. I am expecting some pain, and can handle that, just do not want a relapse.

Bit chilly. 17 w/6 degree wind chill. Run felt 'ok' and honestly that is to goal for now. My therapist gave me the 'ok' to increase my mileage some so that is great news. 

On a side note, she video taped me running and reviewed it with some people. They said I was running VERY stiff. I watched it and agreed, the problem was fear. I am afraid to loosen up because I am waiting for it to hurt. That is something I need to get over. They also said I was heel striking and wanted me to consider changing that. I honestly have never been a fan of changing my gait but maybe should, but when? I want to build my base back, and quickly get ready for Boston. Honestly I am not even sure how to go about it, I mean I have already read tons about it, but I have no desire to run barefoot (yes that is extreme).

Took advantage of a clear afternoon, 30 and an easy 3, picked up the pace for the last mile but nothing crazy. Legs feel ok right now, keep that trend I say....

55 degree run, but holy wind batman. 25mph wind with 45-50 mph gusts and it gusted an awful lot! Colder now and will hit 20 by 11 pm. Hows that for weather change. I think it will feel a heck of a lot colder in the morning during the run.

14 degree run.... yep it felt it too. An inch or so of snow on the ground.  A little stiff coming in, but all in all a decent run.

20 snow/ice. It was cold when there was wind, otherwise no too bad. When you are recovering you include every .05 you can feel good about!

Crazy weather changes... 48 this morning with more wind - sustained 30mph winds and the gusts were crazy. Makes dressing for the run slightly more challenging when things change so much, but its all good.

31, probably too many clothes. Felt alright, ran the last mile fast to test the old legs out. Seemed ok. I am getting ... well I just want to put in a 70 mile week and hit some speed work. I feel like Boston is going to be brutal.

31, wore way too many clothes. Sometimes it just makes you wonder what you are thinking. Did have a yummy parfait post run, so that is working for me. Longest post recover/injury run yet and I feel decent.

5 miles- middle 3 marathon pace or better. Just testing the legs out, they forgot how to run fast.

Sugar Creek trails- 34 degrees. One muddy mess... slow, very slow running but got it in. Nerve is bothering my quad a little. I think it was because I played some basketball Friday night. Might not have been a great idea.
