Went to run on the treadmill but it was not working right. It would overspeed and turn itself off.  Didn't have time to get to it before work when I wanted to run but looked at it after work.  Ended up being a dusty optical speed sensor. A little air in the can and a recalibration and it was good to go!  Glad it wasn't more serious

Had to put my kitty, Stripey, down today :(.  She was 8 years old and had some long medical conditions.  She had eye cancer for the last 3 years or so and it looks like it finally spread to her liver. She ended up losing like 3 pounds over the course of a month which is a ton and she wasn't eating. So it goes

I've been trying to get into the habit of running before work which means I need to be out the door between 6:!5 and 6:45. I'm batting like 0.500 right now which is worse than I'd want to be. I did manage to get out and run 5.5 this morning at an easy 7:27 pace. Hope I can continue it tomorrow

Ran the puppies to doggie day care so they will be tired and I can relax after work.  Averaged around 8:03 pace for the first 1.7 miles to the place and then tooled around to make it a solid 4 miles with an average pace of 7:55.  Did I mention it was pouring and 40 cause it was! But my new jacket did a wonderful job of keeping me mostly dry!

10.300.000.00

Ran 10.3 miles this morning in the pouring rain and 35 degree weather. Pretty steady. First 7 miles were 7:33 average but I was cranky and tired of being cold and wet and wanted to get home fast so the last 3 miles ended up being around 7:15. I was suppose to run this 10 last night but flipped it with my 4m that was scheduled today.

I want to hit 35-40 miles (with an 11 mile long run) for the next couple week and then start specific training for a spring half-marathon using a 12 week program (start on 2/13). Aiming for 1:20 for the goal based on how my 5k I have scheduled in late feb goes.
