Got out just before lunch on a sunny day.  Ran with Kim for 2 or 3 then the rest solo.  Did a couple of steep hill sprints.  Not much gas in the tank today and always felt like a headwind no matter which direction.  Not sure if the blood donation last week still has me messed up or something else.  Ave HR was way high too considering the pace. Oh well I guess some days are just like that.

Got tied up at work and didn't get out to run until after 3pm.  Not my favorite time to run but the unseasonably warm temps (40's) and sunshine helped.  

Kind of a weird run, my legs felt great but I was breathing way too heavy for the pace and my HR was thru the roof with my overall ave HR about where it should be after a tempo run. Talking to Kim she's been feeling the same way so I think we chalk it up to the blood donation last week.

Bit cloudy and chillier today than we've become used to, but still pretty nice for early Feb with temps in the high 30's.  Felt a little better today than that last few days but still taking it easy. Ran with Kim for around 2 miles or so but she was really not feeling the love today so we mostly did our own thing.

Hill run at work.  Did 2 steep hill sprints toward the end. Feeling a bit weary lately I'm thinking I'll lower the running miles and maybe add some cross-training for a few weeks.

No run today.  Figured cross-training might be good but working at home today so no gym access.  So only option was to crank the incline on the treadmill all the way (it doesn't go that far) and do some uphill walking.  

I was actually surprised how good a workout I could get with the incline, HR stayed in the 130's and 140's most of the time about the same as a slow run. Pretty boring but helps to be able to watch/listen to TV.  I lasted an entire hour and covered just over 3 1/2 miles.

Legs feeling quite rejuvenated and refreshed so maybe doing 1-2 days of XT for a while will be a dandy thing and keep the dang -itis's under control.
