Nice weather - 50 degrees in January in Indiana is pretty warm.  Testing out New (Old borrowed from dad) Nishiki 10 speed - its been sitting in my dad's garage for years now - it had a couple loose bolts and adjustments that it needed, but overall it rode well for the 13.6 mi. out and back on people trail to downtown Columbus bike shop.  Anyway that took about an hour, and then ran a moderate but tight 4.4 mi. - 32:20.

12.1 mi. outside AM - 45 degress and getting warmer - supposed to be 50's today! :)

4.1 mi. w/ dog - 29:33

8 mi. on Terrace Lake hills - 57:51

My pace is feeling comfortable at 7:00-7:30 on these moderate training runs.  Encouraging, since last year I was starting at about 8:00-8:30s - it looks like it could be a good year! :)
