14 Mile run. First 7 were straight north into the 20-25 mph wind. Then turned around and ran back. It was cold too! Last 7 were 2 minutes faster than the first although I wasn't trying to run fast. 8:25 AP. 

I've still not been feeling very good. Hopefully this crud will go away soon.

2 Peter 3:9 

The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

Cold and drizzly morning so I went to the gym for 7 easy miles on the TM and a little upper body workout. I'm still not feeling very good.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

It was raining this morning so I didn't go out to run. Went to the gym at lunch for the second time and ran 8 miles with the first 4 Avg 8:30 and the Last 4 Avg 7:40. The last two were 7:30 (the fastest the TM's will run). 

As soon as I stepped off the TM the owner of the gym can over and told me not to run on the TM's more than 40 minutes in case some other customers want to use them. There are four TM's and no one was using them except me. I really need to find another gym!

Finally starting to feel better. :-)

Off to Canada tomorrow on a business trip for three days. Not looking forward to this trip.

Finally I am feeling like I can run again!

It's -20 degrees in Edmonton, Canada...wayyyyy too cold for a Texas boy!

PM

Made it to my hotel and had an hour and a half to waste so I went to the gym and ran 5 on the TM @ 9:00 Pace.

Still in Canada. Went to a "real" gym across from the hotel. They probably had 20 treadmills. All were being used when I got there so I had to wait a few minutes. I ran 10 miles at varying paces but averaged 8:35 for the entire run.

Traveling home Friday so no run then.
