26 and cold wind. Broke out the pants. Base run, 11x 20s Striders 40s Recoveries.

Passed a very fat squirrel that should hibernate. A weird guy on a bike wearing a Browns jacket and a guy walking his dog that looked at me like I was insane. 

1x Warm Shower. Long Recovery.

Good run today. Did the old every other mile at MP. MP miles ranged from 7:38-7:50. Overall 8:32. Satisfied. Plenty of small wildlife on the bike path. Deer are absent, but then again it is hunting season.

Ran from the hotel to a park. Looks nice and it was warmer today. Long days on the road, but I enjoyed this run.

Trying to get well. Cold and chilled during the run. Coughing made me end the run.

Still coughing quite a bit, but couldn't stand to miss another run. Pushed myself and I think I am finally starting to turn the corner. Now if work would just leave me alone... one thing at a time. Hope to have a solid running week next week and keep feeling better.

Tornado warnings canceled my run yesterday, Today, a nice 44 degrees and a decent run. 5 Roughly every other mile at MP. Presents are wrapped. Time to get some rest and reflect on the year God has graciously given us.

Busiest day of the year for me at work, so not a ton of time. I am pleased I have been able to get back running and my old injuries appear to be just that, old injuries. My goal was and is to get back to the starting line and back to Boston, etc .. blah blah... but I need to do  a 5K and see if it hurts as so far the training has been fine, but I lack speed. I mean I always lacked speed, but now I REALLY lack speed. I guess I will see when I try and push something for more than just intervals.
