It was 58 degrees and sunny this morning.  I ran 8.53 miles nice and easy.  It took about 2 miles for my foot to loosen-up after that hike down the mountain Saturday evening.  After I ran uphill for a mile and a half I was feeling really good and was able to run a faster mile and it did not hurt any more than the normal.  Pain level today...about a 2 after I was warmed-up.

I put this on the wrong day, this was my Monday run.

It was 60 degrees with some wind this morning.  I stretched really good and decided I would try to go 10 miles today if my foot felt up to it.  I kept myself within 2-3 miles from my house...just in case.  I ran 13.26 miles and my foot did fine.  Towards the end of the run it was actually fatigue that bothered me more than my foot.  That's what happens when you do almost no running for over 2 weeks.  The pain level was a 2 at most and sometimes I did not even notice it.  The run was pretty boring since I kept running back and forth on the top of Satterfield from miles 5-12, but I finished just fine.  I need to get used to running in warmer weather now.

I put this on the wrong day...this was my Tuesday run

It was 64 degrees, some raindrops, and kind of muggy this morning.  I needed to drop a car at the airport for someone so I ran 1.22 miles to the car, drove it to the airport, then ran home.  The good thing is that I ran absolutely NO downhill and most of the run was pancake flat except for the last 2 miles of uphill to get home.  I ran 11.13 miles and the foot is better every day :-)

It was 60 degrees when I left this morning.....70 by the time I got back.  It sure heats up fast this time of year.  I ran 15.22 miles in a good pace with a few fast miles.  My foot is about a 1 on the pain scale....more of a slight annoyance than pain.  The only time it bothers me is if the road has a sharp angle to either side.

It was 56 degrees when I left, 63 when I finished with some breezes that felt pretty good.  I ran 11.31 miles nice and easy.  I finished a bit stronger today and I think I am getting used to higher temperatures.  I know the St. George runners would love our temps, but they feel warm to me.
