I bought a used treadmill yesterday ($75.00), and took it for a test drive today. Looks like it will do the job. It's weird to finish a run and not have that pounded feeling in my legs and feet. I think something is lost with treadmill workouts but it's better than nothing. I envision myself using it this Winter when the weather is ridiculous, and/or to add mileage during the week by running my second run of the day on the treadmill.

Great run from the house to LPT out and back, (Since I run this route so much, I'm thinking of just labeling it: RFTHTLPTO&B, maybe). Clear skies and 40 degrees this morning. Lighter out thanks to the time change. Felt pretty good after a slow warm up.

Left the house at 5:30 am to get the run in ahead of a storm forecast to come in this morning. Perfectly timed. Low to mid fifties, a headwind and spotty rain going out. A tailwind and continuous light drizzle coming back.

The first four miles or so were extremely slow, but then I had a good pace the rest of the run. Big negative split. This was one of those runs where I was enjoying myself during the run, felt strong and wanted to keep going but had to get home and get ready for work.

Predicting a decisive Obama win tonight...or mass corruption, confusion and a Supreme Court decider in two to three weeks.

Run from the house to LPT out & back this afternoon. 36 degrees, breezes, a little sun and snowfall. Typical Utah weather.

Aside from being over and under dressed, having to go to the bathroom, my eyeglasses fogging up most of the way, and my shoes needing to be retired, todays run was otherwise comfortable.

I went to bed early last night because I was feeling like I was coming down with something. Achy joints, stiff neck etc. I got 8 1/2 hrs of sleep, felt alright in the morning but by the end of the day I felt really quite ill. I got home and took a two hour nap and felt much better. I thought I'd play it safe and just run an easy 6 on the treadmill.

I'll probably take my rest day tommorrow and run short on Saturday. Then hopefully a long run (12-15 miles) on Sunday if I feel better.

Run from the house to LPT, out & back. Decided to get a longer run in today because the weather was beyond ideal for November. Low 50's, high thin clouds, mostly sunny. I felt like I was in some kind of time warp. It felt like an early spring day. Beautiful. It's supposed to rain tommorrow.

I felt really strong the first nine miles and then kind of woozy. Maybe remnants from the illness I felt the last couple of days. Then when the wonkiness went away, ye olde IT band on the right leg did it's little flare up thing. I find that if I change my stride, that is, run faster, the pain is manageable. I was able to finish the run. I'll have to give it a thorough stretching tonight.

Yay team!
