Ran with lunchtime group at work -- five of us all together. Temps were in the low 50's with about a 10 mph wind out of the south. It was supposed to be an easy run so the first half was 9:15 pace or so, but we picked it up on the way back and averaged about 8:15 per mile. Over all I felt pretty good. No aches or pains to speak of. One of the ladies in the group also ran Boston in 2007.

Partly cloudy. Temps in the upper 40's with a stiff wind out of the south. Easy out and back. I felt a bit sluggish starting out and there was still a little bit of lingering soreness in my ankle from the day before, but after a mile or so, things started to click. I didn't push it much the first half and only occasionally during the second half (probably around nine minute pace).

Beautiful spring day, but a little cooler than you'd expect with all the sunshine. Temperature at noon in the upper 40's with a 10 mph wind out of the south. Felt pretty good, but didn't push any faster than 9:00 pace.

Walk on Highland Glen loop with Laureen. A stiff, cold wind out of the north made part of the walk uncomforable.

Weight workout today, upper body. Got in a few easy miles on the treadmill.

Ran with Dan at noon. I did 6 half mile repeats followed by a mile and half cooldown. Felt pretty good for the most part even though it was kind of cold and windy.

Decent day. Didn't push it that hard.

Just building up some mileage. Sunny, but kind of cold with the wind.

Ran the 56W loop with D, M and P. Kind of cool starting out with snow still on the ground in places and a cooler breeze, but with the sun out it soon felt great.
