I started the day before New Years off right with a nice run.  The weather was about perfect and I actually felt really good after the 20 mile run on Saturday.  My legs felt fresh and ready to run.  I am hoping I can get a run in tomorrow but we will see how much the late night messes me up.

Happy New Year!

It was an unusual day.  A friend wanted to go surfing for the day so we loaded up in his RV and headed to the beach.  The night before we decided we would take the bikes just in case.  Well, it was a good thing we took the bikes.  It was crazy windy and the waves were terrible.  It was also really really cold so I was not about to get in the water.  We decided to take a trail that has a bike path and ride for a while.  It was a nice relaxing ride and basically flat.  It was windy going out, but the way back was a strong tailwind and we basically didn't have to pedal.  It was a good to work the legs a little but in a different way.

I decided to sleep in a little because I was up early New Years Day and I didn't sleep much that night.  I am glad I did.  I had clinic today so about 11 I went to the gym and ran outside on the track for 10 miles.  It is really flat so I ran pretty fast even though I tried to slow it down.  It was just really easy and I hardly felt like I was working.  It's amazing the difference you feel when you are running on a flat course vs. a hilly course.  I want to get a few back to back 10 milers in and this weekend I will do 15-16.  Next week is my trail marathon and I am not trying to go fast so I don't need a major taper.

Nice and easy 10 mile run today.  I actually felt really good considering I did 10 yesterday afternoon.  It was really cold this morning but after a mile or so it felt really nice.  I am finally getting back to my old ways where I run more back to back 8-10 mile runs.  I have really missed doing this so it feels good to be back.

16 nice and easy miles on the roads/trails.  My legs felt a little tired to start but they felt really good when I finished.  Next week is the trail marathon so I will take things much easier next week just so my legs feel a little fresher for my run next week.
