AM - 4.25 miles with Dan and Finn on the trail.   Ran a little 1/2 mile warm up awaiting Dan which allowed the hamstring to be less wonky when we started together.   Lighter pace than yesterday - good to catch up with him as he just returned from a 7 day cruise.

AM - 4.5 miles with Dan and the dogs on the trail.   Did a little 1/4 mile warm-up before Dan arrived to awaken the left hamstring.  Decent run with limited discomfort in the first mile.   A bit slow on the pace but it was kinda foggy and the fields were a little difficult to navigate in the dark.

AM - did a short 1/4 warm up on the treadmill to get the hamstring awakened and then met Dan at his house and ran the horsetrail roads from there for 5.25 miles with dogs.   Rosie was a laggard today off-leash but we were also moving more quickly than when we are on the trail.   Still cold and frosty out, but a nice morning and a good pace.   2100 meters of indoor rowing followed by a yoga session afterwards.

AM - 4.25 miles with Dan and Finn on the Milton trail.  Did a 1/4 mile warm up before Dan arrived.   Good bit warmer today in the low 50's with rain expected today and tomorrow before it turns cold again.  Left hamstring is really wonky the first 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile before it evens out and I stop having to think about it.

AM - a little over 1/4 mile warm up and then ran with Dan and the dogs on the trail.   We've been going a bit earlier this week and so it is dark even when we are finishing up - ran in the woods; tripped and fell like a sniper had hit me - abrasions on my forearms/elbows, knees and chest.  No real harm done but looked pretty bloodied by the time we were done.  Decent run otherwise.

AM - 4.5 miles with Dan and Finn in the neighborhood - rained all afternoon and through the night so the streets were wet, and the temperature dropped.   Same slow start but most of the run felt like a normal pace with occasional discomfort in the hamstring.  2100 meters of indoor rowing afterwards followed by a yoga session.   Heading out of town today for a long weekend with my bride in Stowe Vermont.
