Started at what I thought would have been a manageable pace - wrong.  The legs are fatigued, and just not wanting to move like they were a month ago.  Solid first 4 miles, and at this point I felt the usual pains - left hamstring, knee, blah, blah... Nobody wants to hear somebody whine about injuries.  I kept it at around a little slower than MP the rest of the way, and finished.

Decent training run I guess :)  Oh well, at least I didn't pay for the race :)  Sorry, Indy, but, one hr long drive is enough for a half I haven't trained for... Yeah, no race day packet pickup for a 9am race.

5:30 pm Grand View Group Run.  Tim showed up today, so we had 4.  Faster pace than ever before (because of Tim).  Kept it under 7:00/mi. for the whole 15k, even the last climb.  Felt manageable until the final climb.  45 degrees and clear - running under the stars around the lake - nice :)

AM treadmill - light interval workout: WU, 5x0.25 @ 10 mph, CD.  4mi.-29:26

PM outside:  Its Snowing!!  The wind was gusting (about 30 mph) and the snow was starting to fall.  Couldn't miss it - 2 mi. w/ 0.5 mi. stride (~6:00/mi.) - 14:07.

Brooks Glycerin 10 - for soft and the usual already broken-in feel that Brooks has had for me.  Nice training/long run shoes

AM: easy 2 miles outside with the dog.  Snowy, slick roads and feels like 20 degrees here in Indiana.  Not as bad as some places in the country, but far from comfortable running conditions.

Maybe a couple more later on the treadmill.  Looking for about 50 miles this week, about 60 next week.

PM: 2.5 miles on the treadmill - nice and easy

No 5k this morning - its an hour drive, the roads are icy, and my sister and best friend both had babies this weekend.  AM: Easy 7 mi. on the treadmill - 1 hr.  Off to home - Lexington, KY for the next couple days - through Christmas.  Will get to visit with two different newborns.  It'll be nice to get some miles in on the old routes down by my dad's house.  Merry Christmas everybody!
