I got up this morning and decided not to run because of the snow and ice, so I waited a few hours.  I went about 10:00 am in between my classes, so I only had time for a shorter run.  I went on the Lundstrom 5 mile loop.  I felt okay, other than some tightness in the hamstrings from the 10k on Saturday.  I ran good and probably ran the right amount for me today.

Day off.  I spent too much time shoveling the 7 inches of snow we got.  I did make it out to lift my legs this morning before ex-phys lab.

I went early morning and it was butt cold, it felt like I had gone back in time one month.  The roads were snowy and icy so I took it easy.  I am very sore from lifting my legs yesterday. 

I went on my south Providence loop, and although I was so sore I ran okay.  I came back up the 800 North hill.  I am glad that when I go out at 6:00am I am not running my whole run in the dark.

I ended up sneaking a run in between two of my classes, which made me late for the second one, but that's okay.  I ran about noon and it wasn't any warmer, but at least it was light.  I did the same run as my Lundstrom 5 miler, but I extended by two miles.  I went all the way down 1200 E. until 2300 N. where the road turns.  I went up to 1250 E., turned North and went to 2700 N..  It was past the park where they hold the Pumpkin Walk every year.  I then went upto 1600 E. and met back with my 5 mile course.  It was nasty going South with a hard, bitter cold wind blowing in my face.  I felt alright, but mainly just plugged along.

I went out tonight at about 6:30pm and ran my Millville out and back run.  It was very cold, and was only light for the first two miles.  Luckly there was most of a moon out to light the way.  I hate running at night because not only is it dark, cold, and a lot of traffic, but it feels like you are running faster than you are and the time goes by really slow.  I tried out my brand new pair of Saucony Hurricanes and they felt good.  It was a decent run overall.

I ran about noon today because I spent all morning doing homework.  None of the guys said that they wanted to run today with me so I was on my own again.   I was feeling lastnight's run all morning and was fairly tight in my lower back for some reason?  I took it out easy because I wanted to go 15 miles, and not only did I run lastnight, but my long run was just over 10 for the year. 

I figured I needed some distance and some hills for next weeks race so I went on a modified version of a loop I was donig last year that goes up Providence hill, runs along the bench down in to Millville and back.  The old loop was about 14.6, so I added enough to make it a full 15 miler. 

I felt crappy most of my run, really heavy.  The hills hammered me, and I got attacked by a few dogs in Millville (that I might go take care of later), but I finished.  I feel really tired and my body is wore out, probably from running 25+ miles in 24 hours which I am not used to.  Even though I felt like I was crawling home, I still ran fairly good.  I am glad to get a15 miler under my belt at the first of March, something that I have never done before!

I reached my goal this week, even with a crappy start because of the snow.  I am going for 50 miles next week.
