8 easy at 8 min pace. Calves are a bit sore. Actually had to do some real work yesterday. My quads are overly strong I think due to all the pool running, while my calves are weak in comparison due to the lack of running.  I need to get into the weight room for some more lifting I think.

Everything is closed. Work, the pool, the gym. There is a foot of snow outside and nowhereto run. It sort of pissed me off because I was on a roll with my running but took today off. Not worth hurting myself running in this crap.

5 mile run and an hour pool run.  Off work again today since my campus is closed. Warm this aternoon and most people have dug the sidewalks out so while I was hurdling snow drifts, I did get a decent run in by running circles outside Washington Lee high school then went to the pool.

10 easy. Felt great today, really strong. Most of the trail was clear of snow. I even dropped some low 7s and averaged 7:30 pace. Felt like my old self for a change.
