PM - 9 miles in the mist/fog/drizzle on a chilly afternoon to start off the new year.  Hilly route made for a slow pace but felt good to be out.

AM - early start 6 miles on the treadmill with some indoor rowing.  Busy work schedule for the next few days.  My body doesn't really like /enjoy running so early in the morning (even worse with age) - but it may be my only opportunity to run, so...I will grind through it.

AM - got some snow and freezing rain overnight - ground was really icy.   Took Finn out for a run on the golf course.  Quite cold but sunny.  Lots of kids out on the hills sledding. The crunchy icy snow was tough on Finn's paws - even caused some bleeding.  So I brought him inside and cleaned him up. No real harm done.  Ran a few more miles on the treadmill and the some indoor rowing.

AM - late flight yesterday evening arriving in Houston at 11:30 pm - up early this morning for a run in the area around my hotel before 6 am.  Slow but decent effort.

PM - 3 miles with Finn and then went back out and did another 10 on my own on a hilly course.  Felt reasonably good throughout, but quite tired and sore afterwards.

PM - total of 9 miles.  Went to the Milton trail and did about 4 miles out and back with Riley and Finn.  They drive back home and I did another 5 or so.  Legs were fatigued from yesterday.

AM - just 3 miles this morning with Finn and Riley.  Legs and body were surprisingly noticeably fatigued yesterday - so instead moving ahead with more miles this morning - I just kept volume low and easy.  Travel this afternoon to Philly.

AM - 6 miles along the Schuylkill River in Philly before sunrise.  Legs felt completely fine today.  Pleased that I did not succomb to the temptation to run more miles yesterday.

Got out with Riley and Finn after work for a few easy miles.  Still not even 65% better.

Had to travel to Denver today.  Early start - left the house before 6 am.  Expect the client meeting to require me to stay overnight - but we finished in enough time to get the last flight out - which I am not sure was a good thing, since I did not get home until midnight.  Long day.  Probably not the best thing for this cold that still lingering.

PM - 4 miles very easy on the treadmill at lunchtime from work.  Easing back to normal health again.  Should be 100% in the next day or so.

PM - Tracy alerted me via text that my dog "needed a 10 mile run" after work - so we went out at the end of my day - not quite that far - but decent effort for him to burn off some energy.

AM - went with Riley and Finn to a Providence Park which recently reopened - couple of nice trails for running - but not very lengthy.  Got about 3 miles in with them and then I ran home while Riley drove Finn home.

PM - cold and damp outside - could not get motivated to run outdoors.  Got in a treadmill 4 miles.  Better than nothing.
