8.0 in around 1:00:35.  Avg pace of about 7:34. 

Ran out by my old church and towards the freeway for 4 miles, then turned around and came back.  First two miles at about 8:04 and then I got progressively faster.  Last mile was about 7:00.  Could not figure out why there was so much traffic and why it was so much lighter than normal.  Turns out I woke up an hour later than I realized and didn't figure it out until I looked at the clock after my run.

Big loop from 1100 West out to State St. and then connecting with Center St.  A few variations to get above 6 miles.  I think the cold is making me go faster than I would normally.  I was hoping to keep this around 8 minute pace average.  The tops of my right fingers ached because they were so cold.

Out towards my old church and towards the freeway and back home.  I was going to do a 2 mile warmup, 4 mile progressive tempo, and then a 2 mile cooldown.  However, I lifted weights last night and it does a number on my body.  So, I just threw in some strides during the middle miles and called it good.  I was pretty tired.  Everything was still right around the 7:30 mark with the exception of mile 1 which was right above 8:00.

Didn't want to wake up this morning.  An easy recovery run today up Center St. to State St. and then over to 300 West and back.

10.30 in 1:20 on the TM.  No work for me today, so I ran longer than usual.

20 minute warmup and then did a pyramid workout.  1 minute slow, 1 minute fast.  2 minutes slow, 2 minutes fast.  Did this up to  five minutes and did 2 sets.  Slow was 8 minute miles and fast was 7:30 (not that fast) for the first pyramid and 7 minute miles or below on the second pyramid.  Anything below 7 minute miles was tough for me today.  Not a bad workout for me though on the TM.

14.30 in 1:57:37.  Went with Becca and we met Walter up at the Porter Rockwell Trail.  Wasn't as cold as I thought it would be until the end.  The run went by pretty fast as we listened to Walter tell some stories.
