I had a sore hamstring on Saturday and had my wife work out some of the knots, as a result it has been super sore. I don't think it is injured just bruised. I took it super easy on my run in the snow. I could feel the hammy going up the hills, but it seemed to get better as I went. No watch.

I got home from my run and I got a phone call from Oquirrh Hills Middle School in Riverton and they offered me a job. I start on January 22. I guess we will be looking for a place to live in South Salt Lake Valley or Northern Utah County for now. If anyone knows of any good places let me know.

No run. I was bummed because it snow and snowed all day. I spent all afternoon pushing, pulling, and digging the neighbor's vehicles out of the snow. People kept driving up to the house for piano lessons, against our advice, and each one got stuck.  It doesn't matter if you have 4 wheel drive when there is 23 inches of new snow on top of some old snow and ice. Sore back after 5 hours of that stuff!

I ran into Brigham City to the Cemetery, via Hwy 89, and back the same way. We had a ton of snow yesterday up this way and I figured the Highway might be the only thing cleared, and I was right. The way back was a lot faster, because I finally got going, it is actually uphill running home. I felt good and it was nice to average 7 minute miles on a run instead of 8-9 minute miles like I have been doing lately. Hamstring felt fine. My achilles is slowly getting better, the hot / cold therapy is effective, and the Strassburg Sock that Steve sent me seems to be helping too. 1:09:55 for the run.

I did a run into Brigham City and up to the mouth of Sardine and back. I wanted to see if I could make the distance of a half marathon comfortably. It was warmer today, in the upper 20s when I left. I felt okay, but was glad to get done. I was going to run with Logan but ended up tending my little boy who is kind of sick right now, so I had a small window of time that I could run.
No watch! 

I am wavering with my decision to run Painter's next weekend. I have so much going on with the new job and finding a place to live. Plus, I am just not even close to race form, let alone half marathon form! I guess I will just have to see how this week goes and decide what to do when the time comes.
