My dad's birthday today. Gave him and my mom a call to Facetime with them and and the boys. Had a heating guy come to check the vent in nursery as the heat doesn't seem to be doing much in there. Didn't notice last year as the boys were with us in our room.

90' w/ 3 x 8'

Was feeling very anxious but finally got out around 3. The boys had an epic morning nap, which was good. Easy running but got blasted by snow and rain, but thankfully it clear. Almost turned around and went home. Too tired and old for this crap. Legs were cold and lifeless. Decided to do a little work after 60', so I settled on doing 3 x 8' moderate to uptempo. Ended up progressing effort wise. Not fast but the efforts were right and I got faster. I am thinking I will likely do some quality minutes as I rebuild long runs. Nothing too taxing for now, just enough to wash away the staleness from all the gentle running.

Broke in a new pair of Saucony ISO Freedom 3s. Like them a lot so far.
