If not today, when?

My plan is to run three miles, three times this week to knock off the rust. I'll check the schedule that I made up for January and see where I can jump into it.

Today was another 50+ degree day, so I had to get out after work and hit the road. I also really tried to push that last mile; I was hoping for a 10 minute mile, so I'm not too disappointed.

Excuses, excuses, excuses

1. The weather here has been crappy the last two weeks.

2. I started seeing a chiropractor last week and have been really sore the last two weeks.

3. Work has been crazy busy, and I've been tired the last two weeks.

4. I started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic about two weeks ago.

All of these are good excuses not to run! Really, they are!!

Anyways, it was finally sunny today, I had the day off, and I'm not as sore as I have been. So, I ran. Yay on me.

BTW, I'm on the Jedi Covenant server, Republic side, usual names (Daxeno, Daxie, Daxea, Daxenos, Daxen, Daxeo.) (Yes, Michael, I totally stole your son's name for my pretend characters.)

Winter's here...boo

But thankfully, I have access to a treadmill. This run makes 11 miles for the week, and all my parts are feeling fine! Next week is 14 miles and 4 days instead of 3.

Another glorious day!

I am very glad that I targeted this day for my 5 mile run! It is absolutely gorgeous out! Accuweather says that the temp is 54 degrees F at this moment and sunny. I'm no human weather vane, but I would say that is right on the money.

Of course, tomorrow and the following days are supposed to return to normal (high twenties to mid thirties for a high), so I'm ecstatic that I've gotten in two runs this week in very nice weather.

Sunday Run

I don't often run on Sundays, but after being sick last week and being unable to sneak in a run yesterday, I thought that I would take advantage of the nice weather (sunny + 44 degrees = Shorts!)

It doesn't hurt to also point out that the weather pattern this week is forcasting 50 degrees on Tuesday and rain on Wednesday. I'd rather run in the sun on Tue than in the rain on Wed, so I began my week today to set that up.

51 Degrees? Gotta run!

After spending the last two days on my death bed from sickness, I finally went to work today. A nice warming trend came through and after work, it was 51 degrees and SUNNY! Now, how could I resist that???

No, I couldn't. Resist, that is. So, here's my three mile run, which is the farthest I've run this year, and I have to say, my injured area seems to be doing well. Now my cardio conditioning, that's another story. I wasn't quite huffing and puffing, but I was close.

Man bites dog!

And sickness derails the running. Stay tuned for further updates.

First run of the new year is...indoors. I could have ventured out into the wind and snow for two miles, but since we were going to the gym, I decided on a warmer clime for my run. Things are still feeling ok, so I'm planning on three miles on Wednesday. Maybe inside, maybe outside.
