Easy run of 12 mi (8:13 avg).  Legs were stiff from yesterday's strength training.  Honestly, I felt kind of pathetic because a run like this was easier a couple months ago, but this time of year miles are miles.  Temp was around 30 and finally no wind.  Now we need to get rid of all the ice.

Easy run of 5 mi on the treadmill after work.  After an 11 hr day at the office that's all I could mentally muster.

Easy run of 16 mi before another storm rolls in (7:40 avg).  I felt miserable the last 4 mi because it feels like I'm hosting another illness.  The kids just got over streph throat.  Man, I don't want that stuff.
