Zach wanted to go lift weights today up at South, so I just decided to get my run done on the treadmill at South.  I felt great running.  Started at 7:30 pace and progressed down to 5:40 pace.

Ran my awesome new loop at Kincaid again. Felt really good and threw in some strides at the end on the road.  Nice getting outside!

I'm pretty proud of myself running every single day before work this week.  It'll keep me in somewhat good shape and sane for the most part.  Felt good running, but a little tired from staying up late last night.

Another easy 7 before work today.  Felt good and even picked it up for the last mile sub 6.

Another good run before work.  Felt good.  If I can just keep these easy runs going through most of the wrestling season, I'll be happy.  1st day of Official Wrestlilng practice today!!!!!!

I felt really good this morning.  I've been starting at 7:30 pace and progressing down to 6:30 pace.  Just gonna do some easy running for awhile.

I was able to motivate myself to get up early and run before school at South.  It really isn't that hard to get out and do this since wrestling is about to begin and will really be the only time I can run.  It felt good.

Reay easy pace to Huffman and back.  Feels so good to be running.  Amazing fall we have been having.  Went on a nice Hike in the evening up by Near Point too.
