     Another 6 easy miles just after dark. Ran a little faster the last mile. 8:29 AP. Really nice day today. The past few days have been cold windy and snowy. Next week is supposed to be nice .

     The weather has been nice the past few days and I finally got a chance to run during the day while it was warm. It was 54 degrees and sunny. I ran 10 miles up around the reservoir and there were only a couple of small spots that were still muddy. I ran the first 4 miles at 8:16 pace then the next 6 averaged 7:42. This finally felt like a real run going a little further and faster than I have in a while. I was surprised how tired I was by the end. My fitness isn't at a very high level right now. Last mile was 7:26. Overall pace for 10 was 7:55.
