52, another great day to run. Started a little slow and had that 'I need to get my running base back' feeling, but then felt a bit better after awhile and finished strong. Legs feel ok, a little sore on the recovery side, but not bad.

38 so a tad colder, but still solid running conditions. Some minor quad pain but I really felt pretty good for the run. Threw in some decent hills on the run and feeling alright. That makes for a good run :)

35, little sleet balls pelting the face for half the run - and I am more than ok with that as I feel pretty good for this run. Nice to hit a double digit again. Hopefully can get some doubles in and get stronger once again.

11 degrees... -3 windchill... 20-30 mph winds. 

I hit the rec center and did 11 on the treadmill. I really do not like those things. I never felt 'in stride' for the entire run.

32- beats what the weekend had. Cold wind though. 6 slow, recovery just sucks the life out of ya! I am not really complaining though, happy I can run and trying to stick to 'the plan' to get my base up for Boston.

still feeling blah, but got some strength back. middle miles i ran 'tempo lite'. Took way too much effort to run those 4 miles at 7:57, either from lack of running or being sick...or both i guess. 

im entering this on my new toy tablet... i mean work tool.

26- cold... very cold and brisk windchill in the single digits, and kinda painful feeling it.  All the same I enjoyed getting out and getting in a decent run. I ran two miles sub marathon pace (Mile 15 was one of them). I figured out I can get to my pace and hold it, just not going to be able to hold it for 26.2 at this time in my running. This is not the point though, I really want to integrate the speed in slow, but best I can before the marathon. All this without aggravating my quad (nerve), that makes me happy :)

Nice day to run in the high 40's. Still windy but good weather. Ran on paths not near the house with some hills. About mile 3 my insides were knotting up! I did not eat anything weird, but I did have two cups of coffee and I usually do not drink it so that must have been in. There just is no cool way to walk out the woods and back on the path is there? They should invest in porta potties. Oh well, felt better after that.

I feel good. Not strong, not fast and not 100%, but I feel good and if that stays the same I will be very happy at this time.
