Went to Wendover on Saturday to see the Collective Soul show.  They were great, really good concert it was fun.  Stayed up too late at the craps table after though and then my wife wanted to hit the Zoo on the way home so we spent Sunday at the Zoo.  I was pretty hammered this morning so I slept in and hit a short run on the treadmill before work.

Had some time after work so I hit the treadmill again for another 3 miles after work.  It was raining pretty good so I couldn't run outside.  Ran without my heel inserts, I thought since my heel  has felt good lately I'd try a short run withouth them.  So far so good, I'll just have to ease my way out of them.

A little cooler this morning but still humid.  Good run got a break and it wasn't raining.  Tired legs after running 2 times yesterday.  But since I ran this morning I got have my after run treat when I got to work.  I have a cup that I fill completely up with ice and have a Grape Powerade....that really tastes good after a run.

Went down to the Fair last night to see 38 Special, they were great and we had a good time.  Especially since it was a free concert with Fair admission.  They sounded great.  Nice moring to run no wind, no clouds temp around 59.  My right shin feels tight, not shin splints though it's different.  I think it's from running on the Treadmill on Monday.  5.36 miles

Got home from work and since my wife is in class I had some time so I went for a short 2 miles nice and easy.  I'm not quite used to these 2 a days yet.  2.06 miles

Today's theme was.....if it doesn't kill me it's got to make me stronger.  So hopefully I'm stronger today.  Tired this morning, legs felt like lead weights but I ended up having a pretty good workout.  I hit negative splits for the whole run today, 2nd mile was 30 sec faster than the 1st, 3rd mile was 30 sec faster than the 2nd, 4th mile was 40 sec faster than the 3rd, and the 5th mile was 54 sec faster than the 4th.

Tired run this morning but it was really nice weather.  Had to get up early and cut it a little short to get my daughter to school.  Legs felt heavy again and I was pretty tired on top of that.  No watch today just ran how I felt.
