Oh okay, one more run this year.  The Quaff guys posted about a track workout in BC, so I went to see if my legs still work.  WU, 12x400 LT, CD.  The WU at 10 minute pace did hurt! but the 400's didn't fortunately.  We were taking it pretty easy, though: 83,84,86,82,  79,80,78,78,  76,77,75,70.  Happy New Years everyone.  Tomorrow's my 33rd birthday - do I run 33 miles? :)  JK - prolly an easy 8.

Happy New Year, everybody!  Today's my birthday, also.  Normally, I would be fairly hungover right now, but the family (Tiff and Jude) are sick so we didn't make it to the planned festivities down in Lexington.  Didn't even see the ball drop last night - asleep by 10:30.

Today was supposed to be a decent 10-12 miler before the snow, but called it off after a very painful 1 mile.

Oh well, its my birthday :)

Off running again - yesterday was kind of a wake up call - I'm still having some pain in my left hip just walking around.  Did get the new bike trainer set up with a little computer so I put in some miles on that.

12 miles on bike trainer in 37:41 w/ some pickups.  Also did about 15 minutes of leg and core strength stuff.  This was nice - the weather outside is getting frightful.
