40 Degrees, starting to warm up so it was a nice run. Put in my blue tooth ear buds and listened to CPAC speeches. Good run.

51 and clear. Very enjoyable slog run. 9 Striders @30s, roughly 5k pace, just to get the cobwebs out. Work and then church meeting tonight, hopefully a calm day.

52 but very windy. The classic today. 10 mile warm up and then 6 intervals. 3 Minutes @ 6:50ish with 2 min recoveries. While I did not kill it, I felt good about the run. I have not slept as much and was not sure if I would be up to it. That and I saw a squirl with the LONGEST tail ever, Fact.

45 at the start. Warmed up as I ran for very nice conditions. After all the snow and ice, I think this was earned. 3 miles of warm up and the first 2 were rough, ankles & shins hurt so I walked for 10 seconds and everything reset itself and felt better. Then 12 miles at BQ pace or better (7:52, with the best miles at 7:28, 7:33), then 5 recovery. Then picked the pace back up for the last 2 just because I had gas in the tank. or gas. Not sure. 

Bike bath was mostly empty for the first half. Saw a red chipmunk, lots of loud geese and some red headed woodpeckers. Eventually passed some nice old folks walking, a girls soccer game and an angry teenager boy walking. He didn't say much.
