Hill loop.  Wow, has it really been a week?  Glutes are sore from a bazillion pick-up-yard-debris squats yesterday, courtesy of the recent windstorm.

6.12 miles, 49:48, 8:08/mi.  Hill Loop.

Ran in some little-used-but-old-NB-915s.  Felt like what I would imagine wearing high heels would feel like.  Maybe not that bad but definitely heel striking instead of mid-foot strike.  Got to run with the elk for a bit.  Now if I could figure out why the joints in my right hand have been hurting lately, I'll be G-to-G.

6.11 miles, 49:00, 8:01/mi.  Hill run.  

4 days in a row.  Wow.  The last time I had a 30 mile week was....August 2013, and it involved a 100 mile race.  Sad.

8.3 miles, 1:08:37, 8:16/mi.

Ice and snow run.  Took a fall and hurt my neck yesterday morning so I was trying to be careful but really needed to get out and get some exercise in and it went pretty well.  Neck pain forced good posture (for once).  Some treacherous spots where I had to walk to prevent another disasterous spill but a decent run given the cold and icy conditions.

Still pretty cold.  Last mile had a lot of standing snow that made for slower going.

14.130.000.000.0014.13

14.13 miles, 1:58:14, 8:22/mi

First long run since.....August.  Sad.  Very flat and boring but at least the weather was decent aside from some wind.  Pushed the last mile, which (also sadly) was ~ 7:35/mi pace.  Ran on all the grass I could because by about mile 9 my feet were screaming on the pavement and concrete.  Got chased out of the former community college roads....evidently they don't allow running back there anymore (more sadness), so getting 14 unique miles is challenging.

Nice evening, aside from the strong headwind in sections.  Glad to get out and beat the next two days of miserable forecast weather.
