Holy Snowfest! Another monster snow storm this morning. We had at least 15 inches af new white powder. Got a quick 4 miles in and then spent an hour plus moving snow around. They say another bigger storm is rolling in tomorrow night into sunday. Yahoo. I think I'm feeling a ski day coming on. Hard to imagine Moab is in just over a month.

Hit the Tm this afternoon. I got called into work this morning for a little while, so I couldn't run until later. It was a good run. The last 1.25 was at about 6:30 pace, I might have kept pushing it except for the kids where about ready to jump on me. Get your snow shovels ready...

Woke up this morning to only a couple of inches of snow. So I was able to clean the drive out and still hit the Tm for 4 miles before heading into work. We got over 28-30 inches of SNOW yesterday. Un-freaking-believable. I should be skiing right now.

Another early morning Tm run. Stepped up the pace for the last three miles. We actually had a day without snow. It was different. Although another storm is ment to hit tomorrow, so Thursday might be the day.

Hit Golds on the way home tonight. Got a good 5 miler in. Ran the 1st 2 miles in 7:30 and then gradually worked up to 6:30 pace. It was good to see my max hr for the run was 180. Running below 7:30 is getting a little less stressful. Moab is in a month... ready or not.

Early morning Tm run. I was very tired so I started off with an easy two. They pushed the pace for the last two.

Hit Golds on the way home for a quick few miles. I thought I would be going to pilates tonight, but ended up shovel snow off and breaking ice off my roof. Hopefully will get a session in tomorrow sometime.

Went to an early morning pilates session.. Mary was intense. Will spend most of the day moving snow and removing ice from my roof. We started getting some water in one of our windows.. we found out the hard way our contractor didn't seal any of our exterior windows..NICE!

Early morning Tm run. Woke up with a semi cold, but jumped on the run to see if I could break it down. Had to take a PB at the 3.57 mark, so I'm going to try and get back on for a few more miles tonight.

Actually jumped on the Tm for another run tonight 4.05 miles. Thought it would be good to mix it up and get two runs in. With Moab and Ragnar approaching....

Early Morning Tm! All these runs have been at a 1% incline I should probably adjust that up more. But running on the Tm is hard enough. This good weather has gotten me excited to run outside...

Evening pilates class. Aughhh.

Another early morning Tm run. Hit the first 2 miles in 7:30, 3rd in 7:10 and 4th in 6:45. Was alittle tight from pilates last night and I have been battling a cold for a few days. It's always more painful when you can't breath right.

Well - I still am feeling a little under the weather, but was able to get up and get my usual 4 in. It's worrying me a little knowing Moab is lurking and I haven't had to many long runs. I'm going to try and get outside for one on Saturday if the weather cooperates. This mornings stats: incline 1% mile 1 7:30   2, 7:24  3, 7:10  4, 6:45.... my heart rate was pounding pretty good on that last mile.

Hit Golds on the way home from work. Decided to take the first 3 miles at an easy 7:30 pace. Mile 4 7:10 Mile 5 6:48. I hoping to get a good outside run in tomorrow. Moab is in 3 weeks!

Played back to back church ball games last night. My back is hurting this morning....If it warms up I'll look to get off the Tm and get a run in outside.

Tried to go for a run outside - I made it as far as the mailbox and came back inside - way to cold. Hit the tm for a quick run. Then took the two oldest kids skiing up to Wolf Mountain. It was great.

Finally! A sweet run outside. A beautiful winter's morning. Cold and freezing, but the sun was shining, the only bad thing is my nose is still unthawing. Drip drip. I got in just over 11 with an average pace of 7:54. A great way to start the week. It was nice to get a longer run in with Moab just a few weeks away.

Back on the Tm this morning for my usual 4 miles. I'll try and get another good run in this Sat. The miles today felt ok. The 1.35 miles were at 7:30 and avg close to 7 for the remainder. 1% incline.

Hit Golds on the way home for a good Tm run. I was able to get in 7.12. I was inspired by Chad's 6.25 it powered me through. The first 4 miles were at a 7:30,  mile 5 7:19,  mile 6 7:09, and mile 7  6:40ish. It felt good.  My avg Hr was 168. Went and sat in the sauna after...

Was debating this morning if I was going to hit the Tm this morning or hit the gym on the way home. I decided to get up and get in 4+. First two 7:30 3. 7:13  4.  6:45. Might hit some more tonight if the scheduling allows. EARTHQUAKE!!! That was crazy! Sitting here at work and my chair starts rocking...I haven't felt an Earthquake since I was in California about 10 yrs ago. EARTHQUAKE!

Well - I hit Gold's on the way home to get some miles in. I got in about the same run as Wednesday. 7:30 for the first 4 miles and the 5.  7:19  6. 7:09  7: 6:40ish all with an incline of 1% except mile 7. My avg heart rate was 156 I reported wednesday that it was 168, but I think it was 158. My lower back still is a little sore from all the snow shoveling a few weeks back other than that these miles are feeling great! 8 miles  Chad!

Thought about running outside, but after Jamie left for a run I decided to hit the Tm, because my scheduling today is a little wacky. I decided to try and make Chad work for it... So I decided to hit 40+ for the week. my first 3 miles were at a 7:41 next 2 miles at 7:30 mile 6 at 7:19 mile 7+ at 6:40ish finished at 6:31 pace. Hard to image hitting a 40+ week that is good for me. Now I need to keep it up through out the year! Thanks for the push Boothman!!

Well I decided to rest my back yesterday - it's still giving me some hassle. I probably should have rested it today again, but I needed to run. Hit the Tm for 2 miles at 7:35 1 at 7:30 1.25 at 6:40. They felt good. Hoping the weather gets warmer so I can get some miles in outside this week.

After resting my back again yesterday I woke up and felt pretty good. So, I hit the Tm for an early morning run. It's still a bit chilly and snowey for a predawn run. First 2 miles 7:41 next 2 at 7:30 mile 5 7:13 mile 6.25 at 6:40.Incline 1.0. If the back stays loose I will try and get a run in after work....Moab next week!

Well.. Hit the gym on the way home. Got another 5.6 in mostly took them easy. Felt a little fatigued from this morning. Avg Hr 158. First 2 miles 7:30 mext mile 7:41 next mile 7:30 next 1.50 6:50ish. Hope the back feels good tomorrow. That will be the test!
