10 mi - First run of the year done in the cold and sunny outdoors.  I think my first race of the year will be a local half marathon in April.

5 mi - Lunch, lower back and butt are sore which is a sure indication that I've been doing too much sitting and not enough moving.

5 mi - After work on the mill while finishing the movie "Major League". Always liked the 80s vibe and one-liners of that movie.

No run, totally out of it all day.  Up really late the night before as wife had a kidney stone and we had to go to the hospital for emergency removal.

On the treadmill again.  Finished watching "Lone Survivor", which I give a 4 out of 5 stars.  Solid action movie.

I had the day off so you would think a run would get done.  Of course it didn't, but I thought about it all day.

6.5 + 4.4 mi w/5 striders

Started watching "Dumb and Dumber To".  I had to grab the rails on the mill a couple times because I couldn't catch my breath while laughing.  Suppose to get some snow later tonight, so will probably have to squeeze in some snow removal in the morning.

Early morning run before visiting Claire at the hospital.  She's really angry for finding herself in this situation again.  She's reaching for more clarity to try an understand the root cause.  I hope it motivates her.

Woke up a bit late today so plan to run another morning and lunch double to get 10 miles.  First run slower, second run faster.  Followed second run with two supersets of hanging leg raises, pull-ups, pistol squats, hypers, and seated calf raise.
