Just the usual 8 miles with the group.  The legs felt fine.  Total time was 66:08 (8:16/mile).  It was a bit slippery from ice and snow.

I ran with the usual suspects.  I didn't participate in the usual Tuesday antics though.  Once I get up to a steady 8-10 miles a day I'll think about doing some speedwork.  I ran the warmup with them and then continued on at the same pace.  We went a little further along the trail, turned around and came back to the magic 2.5 mile tempo run mark.  They took off, and I ran out to the usual 4 mile turnaround and headed back.  Total time for 9.25 was 1:11:15 (7:42/mile).  I wasn't planning to go that far, but the legs felt okay.
