Hills, hills and more hills. 11 mile run with plenty of hills. Legs felt very tired and heavy but still averaged 6:45 pace overall. First half at 6:55 average and second half at 6:35 average.

8 miles in unusally warm weather for DEC, it was 63'F at 6:00am. ended up averaging 6:45 pace again over very hilly course with very strong head winds during second half of run. Legs still zonked and exhausted for some reason.

Finally a fairly flat course today. Still a very tough day with legs still feeling completely shot. Averaged 6:40 pace overall for 10 miles. Thinking about getting a blood test to make sure things are ok as legs are just not feeling normal.

Eight miles at 6:50 avg. Pace again. I would call it easy but it was a very hilly course and I was very tired.

Brrr, it was very cold this morning at 06'F before wind chill. Face was frozen by the end of the run. Normal Monday morning 8 mile loop. I though this would be the day to end the consecutive streak of averaging sub 7:00 pace for runs but somehow I ended up averaging 6:38 pace overall even though I thought for sure we were running much slower than that. So if I continue with the streak this week will make eight weeks in a row with every run sub 7:00 average pace. Besides the normal pains and issues I have been having lately my left inside quad was killing me this morning. Hopefully the rest of the week goes well and things get a little warmer out.

Another chilly morning run at 15'F but much warmer than yesterday's 6'F run. We ran one of our normal 10 mile hilly run loops. Was not feeling very good today and was pretty sure I was running slower than 7:00 pace but ended up with a 6:48 average pace for the run. Left inside quad feels like I have a "charlie horse" bruise the last two days, not sure why.
