Slushy run outside and had to go slow because of ice patches.

Progression to 7:30 pace then did 2 mi total of 0.25-0.50 fartleks @ 5K-10K pace (7:23 avg pace overall).  I banged my knee hard on a church pew on Sunday so I'm keeping things low key until that heals.  It feels like an internal bruise right in the location of the ITB insertion.

AM:  Easy run 4 mi on the treadmill.  A little tired after last night.  Need to hydrate today.

PM:  On the treadmill again for convenience sake.  Ran 2 mi brisk pace, 1 mi threshold pace, 3 min rest, 1 mi 5K-10K pace, and finished at brisk pace (7:18 overall pace).   Felt like a slug throughout most of it, but toughed it out and felt tons better afterwards.

Well, this run reminded me of the benefit of having a treadmill this time of year.  Ran on a bike trail covered in ice 30% of the time.  Not a big deal.  It was about 30 dg and sunny.  Felt great on the way out, but on the way back I was running into a stiff wind.  It felt like a wind chill in the teens and with a good sweat worked up I was absolutely freezing.  Obviously, I was ill prepared to confront that kind of wind chill clothing wise, but I thought the temp and sun combo would rule.  Wrong!  Being use to running in mostly indoor temps didn't help.  Lonely 15 mi run (7:53 avg).
