Not sure if I'm just a little board, unmotivated or tired but I really have been dragging when it comes to excitment about my runs lately. I was really not wanting to do this run today.

Anyway...I would call this 5 easy miles, 5 slow marathon miles, 5 marathon goal miles and one slow tempo mile.

I didn't feel very good yesterday after my run. I think I was dehydrated. When I finished my run I was at 153 and at anything below 155 I think I start feeling it. It was so cold I didn't drink hardly any water yesterday. When I went to bed I though today would have to be a slow, low mileage day but when I woke up I felt much better. Not great, but better. After the first couple of miles and feeling pretty good I decided to up the goal pace and distance a little.

This was a deceint run but I am really wanting a 7:20-30 pace to seem easier for a run this distance. I guess I'm expecting too much.

There may not be any running tomorrow as a snow/ice strom is supposed to blow in.

Isaiah 1:18 

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.
