My eye was very tender this morning so I only put in 5.  My legs actually felt better today than they have in a long time so I was kind of frustrated that I couldn't put in more miles.  On a personal note, my dog died yesterday.  She was a 14 year old beagle and has not been doing well lately.  I had a pretty good idea on Friday that she wouldn't make it through the weekend and she finally gave in Sunday afternoon.  This will be the most difficult for my son because he has bonded with her more than anybody else.

Felt a little nauseous when I woke up this morning (hope I'm not pregnant).  After a couple of miles I started to feel better.  My legs are finally starting to feel fresh.  Once the eye thing is taken care of, I should be ready to get going again.

A little bit better every day. I've been stuck at a slow pace for over a month  but it is finally coming down.

My daughter woke up early this morning and didn't want me to go running so I guess I get an extra rest day this week.

Just plugging along.

Ran 3 miles to the rec center to meet the running club.  Today's run was just a preview of the 5k on Thanksgiving.  I am still undecided on the race and after today's run I am leaning towards not running it.  I ran with Jim and the pace should have been comfortable but for some reason I had a hard time maintaining a decent pace.  He started to pull away from me during the last 1/2 mile and I just didn't have the desire to keep up.  I'm not sure what is going on with my body.  I just couldn't get my legs to turn over.  When I finished the 5k (20:51) I didn't feel fatigued at all but during the run I had a hard time convincing myself to push.  I'm not sure how much of it is mental and how much is physical.  Ran back home and got my girls for a run around the block.

 My mileage is way low this week so I will probably go out tomorrow to make up for the missed day earlier this week.
