Today was a day to trudge... I was slow, well my pace was not awful (8:40) but I felt just dead. No energy. If I had to guess I would have said I was running 12 minute miles. Back to work schedules and cooler weather :(

Pretty decent run. Still tired, but legs are getting some spring back. Big work meeting tomorrow so I hope to get a nice run in before!

Got my run in - 20s and flurries- and now getting ready for my work meeting. Oh well, at least it is a good meal :) We are going to Mongolian BBQ, do not know if any of you have had it, but it is amazing and you can eat as much as you can. I do overeat on the meat there, but just cannot resist!

Mid teens and snow today... slows me down, but a good morning nonetheless! Long day at work but looking forward to the weekend!

This was a long run. 16 degrees, snow, single digit wind chill (which I would not mention, but since there was a pretty constant 10-15 mph wind - I was feeling it) made my pace in the low 9's despite a good effort. Angel actually drove by and found me around mile 14 to make sure I was okay since I was gone so long. I admit it was nice, but made me laugh. Took me some time to thaw!
