Had a great run today.  Ran my Boston prep route w/ elmore extention.  I felt really good, but had to work hard because snow was a little soft.  It was all good though and nice to run it all outside.  Pretty good week considering I was fighting a stomach bug since monday.  Felt good starting friday.  School starts back up tomorrow, so it's all about time management and not stressing the little stuff until wrestling is over.

8 miles

Nice and easy recovery pace before our wrestling meet this morning.  I felt great and forced my self to run at recovery pace.

18 miles (13am/5pm)

Felt really good this morning.  Started at 7:30 pace and progressed every mile until I was down to 5:46 pace and it felt easy and comfortable.  Also, it feels like this stomach bug is finally getting out of my system.

Easy recovery pace after work.

8 miles

Was able to get an easy run in this morning.  Felt good, but wanted to keep it easy so I can run a good medium distance tomorrow.

Not the way I wanted to start the year off.  Darn stomach is still really upset.  Stomach flu or something.  I don't care though, it's going to be a great 2014!!!!!

Woke up early to get this workout done before wrestling practice.  I felt pretty good despite still having a little upset stomach since I got sick on the 27th.  First tempo workout of the build-up.  I do like tempo workouts the best.  Way better than VO2max.

I was very sick last night puking a few times.  Stayed in bed from 5pm until 9am.  Felt better when I got up, but still weak and fighting a bug.  Felt okay in the evening to run an easy recovery pace 6 miler.  Hopefully it's just the 24 hour bug I got.

11 miles

Ran before work again.  Started at 7:30 pace and progressed down to 6:00 min pace.  Felt good and it was nice and warm in my garage.  Lost a lot of water, but had my water bottle to keep hydrated.

Easy super easy recovery pace.  For some reason I woke up at 6am and felt wide awake.  Had a couple of cups of coffee and decided to run before work today.  Felt good.

Had a great night with my kids and a great Christmas morning too!!!! It was -11 out when I wanted to run, so I did it all on the treadmill.  Started at 7:30 pace and progressed down to 5:36 pace.  My last 4 miles were under 5:50 pace.  Felt really comfortable and somewhat easy.

10 miles (10 x 100m striders)

Great way to start my day. Coffee and toast while watching a little TV.  Then got after my run.  Just General Aerobic pace with some striders. Felt awesome running.  Wish I could've run longer, but need to stick to my plan.

13 miles

I didn't feel good at all running.  Ran my route along side the truckee river.  Beautiful and sunny, but I was tired from the last few days.  I also didn't really realize that it's 4,600 ft elevation.  Not sure if that had anything to do with it.  I just ran out of time to get my 17 miler, but I'm still happy I was able to run while down in Reno for wrestling.

6 miles

Was suppose to be recovery pace but ran too fast I'm sure.

10 miles

Was able to get away and had a great run along the river again.  I felt very strong and was running low 6 minute pace.  Love those kind of runs.

6 miles

Made it to Reno.  Tired from travelling all night.  Ran along the Truckee River.  Nice to be outside.

Last day of work for awhile!!!!!! Busy day though.  Couldn't start my run until 6:30 tonight.  Still below zero outside, so I did the whole run on my treadmill.  Started at 7:30 pace and progressed down to 5:56 pace. Kept it comfortable the whole run. Head to Reno tonight for wrestling tournament.

8 miles (8 x 100m striders)

General aerobic pace on the treadmill today.  -11 out at my house, so I stayed in.  Felt good to run the striders too.
