Ran 9.3 miles on the Treadmill at home in 1:02.  I've put 24 miles on the Treadmill since getting it fixed two weeks ago.

Was going to take the day-off, but I moved my treadmill in a different spot and I wanted to test it out to see if I liked it there or not.  I ran 2.3 miles in 15 minutes.  We rearranged this area where the Treadmill is at to make it more of an entertainment room.

Great devotion this morning with my wife about how we need to be united as one and support each others weakness and strengths.  If you think about it, Christ loves us through all our faults and helps us when we call upon him, and he doesn't back away when we struggle.

Morning run:

Temperature 7 degrees and my hands were so cold I couldn't feel them when I got home.  They hurt so bad, it took 20 minutes before I could feel them.  I have very bad circulation in my hands for some reason.  Their always cold.   Anyway, I ran 13.3 miles at an overall 7:00 pace in  1:32.  I ran longer today because I might not get a chance to run tomorrow because I have to work all night tonight starting at 11pm to put on my security patches. 

I'm glad I'm not training for anything right now because with my work schedule and other changes in my life I really don't need too.

I got home early this morning from work around 5am (which was a 14 hour work day), then I got up at 8am (three hours of sleep) and ran on the treadmill 10.1 miles in 68 minutes at a 1% incline.  I didn't want to take forever getting ready to go outside, because I wanted to hurry and get back to work so I opted for the treadmill.  Not sure how I did it, but I didn't feel too bad just tired.  I'm sure it will hit me later today.  I got to work at 9:50am after the run.  I'm so busy at work that I didn't want to take the day off.  Running is becoming even less important in my life with other things taking control so racing may not be an option for me.  I'm enjoying more time with my wife and devotions in the mornings, and that's very important to me right now. 

 My back has had the same pain for three weeks now.  I think I'll try the chiropractor again.   It seems to be below the shoulder blades in the middle of the back.  I'm thinking it might be because of my increased amount of sit-ups.

I was so tired last night I went to bed at 9:40 after only getting 3 hours sleep in a 48 hour period. I slept 9 hours and it felt good. Although, I'm still tired but I'll try to get to bed early tonight.

After a great devotion I ran 11:31 miles at an overall 7:06 pace in 1:20 at 11 degrees. I saw Bill Mandler going up over the Monte Vista overpass "that looks over the freeway", as I was going down. He was doing another one of his great long runs. I didn't talk to hime because I had headphone on and I was trying to go a little faster on the downhill. I kept the run really slow today and thats good to just float along at times.

Great devotion on how important it is to read God's word everyday.  How can we know God close to our heart if we don't know his word.  Because God is his word. 

This morning the temperature was a heat wave at 32 degrees.  Due to a meeting I was only able to run 9.3 miles at an overall 6:52 pace in 1:03.   I was trying to hurry but not push hard just relax, if that makes sense.  Very good run.  It was snowing a bit so the roads were wet and slushy.  Last 7 mile splits (6:47, 6:45, 6:44, 6:52, 6:43, 6:33, 6.22). 

I'm suppose to do a longer run with Barry tomorrow.  I'm helping him train for SLC and Ogden Hal Marathon's since I won' t be going to those myself and not training for anything.  It's good to help others achieve their goals.

Temperature this morning was 19 degrees but didn't feel too bad.  I ran with Barry starting at the Pocatello Marathon course and coming down the back side on Pocatello Creek Road.  Barry ran 14 miles and some change.  I ran 16.3 miles with an overall average of 7:08 in 1:55.  I sped up the last few miles and ran (6:32, 6:47, 6:49).  

We started before 7am and we had icicles hanging off of us when we were done.  Overall I felt fine and very energized after the run, and not taking anything on the run.  If I was running Ogden or SLC I would feel really good about getting a good time.  My hands still get cold even with mittens on.  Maybe I need to look in to taking some special vitamin for this.
