Went out with Laureen on this warm, beautiful afternoon. The trails are still snow-packed and icy in many places, but it's all starting to melt.

I wanted to make sure I at least did something today. One mile at 10:00 p.m. on the treadmill.

Laureen and I got out at noon for a little loop down the creek trail around by the high school and golf course and then back home.

A quick run on the treadmill this morning after a little workout scraping ice off the driveway. I'm definitely starting to come down with a cold.

Trying to ease back into a good running schedule after almost two weeks of being sick. I don't know if it was the flu since we all had our flu shots, but I was that sick (fever, chills, vomiting, diarrhea, achy joints, general fatigue, lung congestion, coughing and sore throat). I still have a bit of a cough, but I'm feeling pretty much back to normal at this point. I need to get signed up for the Spectrum 10K as that is coming up pretty fast, but I'll probably be in even worse shape than last year (when I could only manage just under eight minute pace). I'm scheduled to donate blood this Friday, but they may not want it since I've been sick. Usually, after I donate it takes about a month before I'm running at full strength.

A nice warm (relatively), overcast afternoon. Felt good so I felt like I needed to go longer than I have for a while. Chest got kind of tight a few times so I had to stop and walk, but outside of that and a bit of soreness in my ankles, it went fairly well. No lingering issues afterwards.
