23 degrees. 52 degree drop from my Wed run. A loud welcome home. Overall though, a decent run. I felt good the whole time. 5 beginning and end were just base running with the 6 in the middle at MP. Quiet morning outside, only 1 other runner and just calm. I will take it.

A freind of my that is an apt manager let me use their treadmills. So I ran the classic. 10 Miles warm up. Then 6x3min intervals with 2 min recoveries. Pace 6:53, 6:53, 6:53, 6:53, 6:53, 6:00.  Cooldown.

12 degrees. Some snow. 11 Striders @20sec w/40s recovery. Roughly 3-5k effort, but snow slows one down.

Frustrating running weekend as the bitter cold and wind kept me off the roads for the first time this winter. Today was 4 inches of snow and freezing rain. 10 miles in the time I would normally run 12-13 miles. So effort and time put in today.

More snow and ice. Slick conditions and a lot of resistance. 30 degrees. 11.25 in OVER 2 hours. Ridiculous how much the slow is slowing me down.

45 at the start! Great temps for a run. It was windy, but I will take it. At the end of the run it was 65. 4 miles warm up and then 9 MP miles (roughly the 7:40's) and then cool down. LOTS of runners on the bike path and most running fairly quick.

30 degrees. Character building run if there is such a thing. I had a 5 mile warm up where I just felt lousy. No energy, no much legs, but I wanted to run half the long run an MP. So at mile 5 I sucked it up and hit my goal BQ pace (7:52) and held that or better for 10 straight miles and then had 5 cool down. While that is not really impressive I felt good about it since I felt like garbage.
