Not fun today.  After the rain last night it was an ice rink out there.  The rail trail south from 2300 N was not runnable.  Had to go north, it was so so and only because Roy City puts a little sand/salt mix down.

Needed to take some time off to get my leg better.  The last week+ With stormy weather was the perfect excuse.  Now I need to take it easy starting again.  So far so good today.  It was really nice to get out again, I missed it.

Cold today, 19 degrees with a breeze out of the SW.  Good to get out, leg is getting better.  I just need to stay the course and take it easy.  Heard a crash at 1800 N 1000 W in Clinton as I was about .1 from the intersection.  Luckily it didn't look too bad.

Cold out there at 21 with a breeze out of Weber Canyon.  Hopefully this is the last couple of days of really cold weather.  Good run today, nice to get out.  Still trying to be careful with my leg.  It's feeling better and I don't want to over do it.

Very windy today.  Decided to run south into the wind first.  Got started and the wind swiched from S to NNW.  I felt pretty good today even with the wind so I'll take it.  No allergy issues with the wind so a double plus.

Didn't feel right today, run was tougher than it should have been.  Could have been due to eating a couple of rolls and sugar cookies at my Mom's yesterday.  Nice morning though and good to get out.  My leg is progressing nicely.
