All miles were at a little faster pace than usual and last mile of the day was down to 20K pace at low-6s.  Feel myself recovering more quickly.

AM: Ran 8.5 mi in complete darkness the whole time thanks to daylight savings time.  Really felt tired afterwards as well.

Lunch: Ran 6.0 mi easy on the TM at the club.  Made the mistake of having a "fun size" Payday bar right before going for a run.  Big time sugar crash during the third mile.  Felt bad during that stretch and then stabilized.

PM: Ran 6.0 with 1K at tempo pace mid-6s.

AM: 8.5 mi before work.  Tried to stay really comfortable because legs were stiff.  Really wish I was about 30 lbs lighter.

PM: 6 mi before lunch.  Great weather with sun and temps in the upper 50s.  Really looking forward to warmer mornings as well, but that will be a while.  Ran fast for around 0.5-1.0 mi near the end.  No watch, just did it by feel.  Surprised I didn't see more runners out.  Come on people!

AM: Terrific morning for a run.  Just needed some sunshine!  Did 8.5 mi all easy.  Legs felt recovered this morning, but should be careful because my lower legs were a little grumpy in spots.

Lunch: Quick 5 mi between meetings.  WINDY!

PM: Dropped my daughter off for volleyball and I went for another run.  6.8 mi

AM: Went out the door this morning and it started to sprinkle.  Turned around and went back inside to run on the mill, but decided to throw on a coat and deal with possible rain.  It's tough going back on the mill after being outside.  Really easy 7 mi.

Lunch: A couple easy progression runs inside on the mill since it was raining and colder outside.  Being wet is ok, being wet and cold stinks!  6 mi

Helped clean up the house a bit and then hit the road for 20.  Took a trip around the lake.  Temp was perfect and the sun was out.  I had GI issues early on though thanks to pizza I had last night.  Also disappointed I couldn't hold a better pace the last 5 miles.  I was running straight into a strong wind though.  I just wanted to be done with this ride.  Avg pace 8:30
