I am tired today. Traveling was one thing, but we had friends from Kenya come home! :) First time they have been back in 3 years so we stayed up pretty late. They will go back to Kenya in June/July. They have already told me I need to visit them and train there for 18 weeks with the locals so they can take me to the next level lol. I plan on visiting, but we will see about the rest!

So all things being equal, my run was good today, but I felt sluggish all day afterwards where normally I feel pretty energetic afterwards.

So I woke up in a sweat today. Some family members have not felt well and I thought maybe I was getting a cold even though that is rare for me. After getting up and getting my running clothes on I realize it is just warm and thats why I am hot. So my last week of running temps.... 47, 24, 61-71, 39, 19, 30 and 55 & rain today... Makes it.... fun.... 

Good overall run, ran some strides after 6 miles and finished the last mile HMP.

29 degrees and snow flurries. No real snow to run through, just flurries, but it did make it slick in a fee spots. Decent run, just running some base miles. Busy day of work, I would love a nap on these days...

19 and snow flurries again. Everything is clear so there was so slick surfaces, but man is that wind cold! Good run, I was not planning any fast running, but funny how when you are cold you want to get that run done!

30's and windy, but a pretty decent run. Took it easy (8:20/mile) and it felt nice just to look around today. Work was crazy, I tell ya this time of year is hectic.

Interesting am run today. I had drama practice this morning so I figured I would just run this afternoon. Well my part is near the middle, but what I did not expect was we did my part very early so that kinda left me done, but I had to wait for the other fam members. I did not have any running gear but I thought, well what the heck. So there I went in jeans, my old worn out New Balance running shoes (now relegated to walking shoes- prolly over 1000 miles on them) down the way. Oh, I forgot to mention we were in a winter weather advisory so it was snowy and windy. I only put in 5 miles, but it was full of resistance and running 8 min/mile in jeans was a little effort :) The other people in the drama looked at me like I was nuts when I got back.

 PM Quick 3 Miles, felt pretty good, but slick and snowy.
