Same run as last Monday up towards Paul's house.  Lots of snow and the roads were really icy so I didn't wear a watch but just enjoyed the run.  Really nice scenery looking at all of the snow.

Last run in Logan as we head back home today.  I ran from the in-laws and did a loop down by 1st Dam and then through downtown Logan and then up towards North Logan and back to the in-laws.  Cooler temps but the sun was out which was nice.  I did an 8 mile mini tempo at 5:47/mile and then cooled down for 2.5 miles.  Great day for a run.  

I have lucked out this last week and a half running in Logan.  I have run with Paul twice and the weather has been great.  I couldn't ask for anything better.  Now back to the real world and not doing the vacation thing anymore.  Dang!!!

Brisk run in the rain this afternoon.  I went from the house over into Santa Clara.  I felt like a school boy running in the puddles and getting splashed.  

Yoga for 20 minutes in the evening.

Club run tonight at the DC but it was only me.  I was a little bummed to not see anyone else there but that is the way the cookie crumbles.  I ran down the trail and then came back out towards Bloomington Hills.  I couldn't believe how much water was in the Virgin River.  The flood came all the way up on to the trail where we do our mile repeats.  The trail is breaking up and has tons of mud on it.  That is crazy.

I wore the balaclava due to the wind and cold.  I was freezing.  I ran 10 miles at 5:57/mile.  Very pleased with the run and am looking forward to a long run in the morning with Clyde.  It should be fun.

On a side note, I saw a guy mowing his lawn this evening.  I guess I am not in Kansas anymore, Toto!!

Met up with Clyde this morning for a 20 miler in balmy 16 degree weather.  I wore the balaclava again and was glad that I did it.  We did two 10 mile loops around Clyde's house.  Nothing crazy today but we did end up beating the 7 minute guy.  Nice to have a solid 20 miler in.  

My balaclava and moustache were frozen when we finished the run.  I guess that means it was cold.

Ran over into Santa Clara with blue skies and the temps being just a little cold.  Great day for a run.  Half way in to the run I stopped at a river and threw rocks to break the ice.  Not sure why I did that but it was fun.  6:26/mile.  The pace was honest and a great start to 2011.  Hope I can accomplish my goals this year.  2010 was having the legs really get used to running again.  Happy New Year everyone!!!
