28 degrees, 15 mph wind

Brrr.. Busted out the tights, gloves, and hat. A month ago I'd have wore shorts and no hat.

Easy run tonight.  AP came to 7:39.  It's weird how 7:39 tonight felt easier than some nights at 8:20.  Last mile was a 7:00 mile and breathing wasn't labored.

Left shin started bad as usual.  I think I'm just getting used to it hurting.  That's all right i guess.  My right calf felt like it had a knot right in the middle of it where I was starting to get a cramp on my LR this weekend.

All mlles on the marathon course again.

Tried to keep this as a recovery run but I ended up with a MP mile as mile 2.  Also put in about 4 strides within the last mile.  Hoping this loosens my legs up.  My calves are feeling pretty tight and sore.

Shin still not better.  Have to get in the myrtle gyrtles tomorrow night.  I've been slacking, and I can feel it.

39 degrees, no wind.

Hammered some miles out before the rain hit.  Now it looks like it'snot even going to rain. 7 mile HMP tempo.  Probably faster than I should have or needed to but I wanted to get my heart rate up for a bit.  Miles were:  7:29, 7:04, 7:06, 6:58, 7:09, 6;50, 6:33. 

Shin is no better.  My leg was feeling kinda weak yesterday kinda up into my hip.  Took the night off from running (also we got another 5 or so inches of snow I didn't want to run through).

Calves were pretty tight at the end.  If I would've kept the pace back around 7:00 I'd have had quite a bit left in me.  For sure a half marathon.  My tentative plan is a half in July (temperature pending).

Planning on an early morning 13-16 tomorrow. Probably nothing spectacular maybe with a couple MP miles at the end and/or some strides.  38 degrees when I run  w/ a high of 73 tomorrow.  :S   Busy day tomorrow or I'd be running later and warmer.
