Nice 7 miler with Kim in the late morning. Beautiful day today for late November, low 40's, sun shining brightly and no wind. Can't beat that!

Ran in the late morning down in the river bottoms. Plan was to do 4 mile tempo run in the middle of the run on my slightly-downhill-usually-with-a-tailwind course that I did a few week ago. 

I had a slight headache during the morning so I wasn't sure how things would go. Goal pace was 6:30-6:45.  Felt good the first mile (that has the most downhill) but then winds kicked up and I had a stiff headwind instead of the usual tailwind and I didn't feel good for mile 2. Decided to bag the last mile and be content with 3 mediocre miles.

Was only planning on 8 or 9 miles total but ended up locking my car keys in the car so I had to run back home and ended up with just over 10.  Had an upset stomach thru the afternoon.

I'll usually endure about any weather rather than resort to a dreadmill run.  But dang windy days can bring out the wimp in me and push me onto the mill. Today happened to be one of those days. Strangely enough I didn't mind the treadmill so much, usually I about go bonkers but for whatever reason I was OK today.  I was however ready to be done after my 7 miles.

8:30 pace, incline around 1 or 1.5 seemed to put my HR in the same zone I'd be at this pace out on the roads.

Ran 7 with Kimi in the late AM on a cloudy but calm day.  Neither of us slept so great last night so we mostly kept the pace nice & easy.  Sure love being able to work at home and run whenever and hang out with Kim over lunch!

What's the deal with it being stormy every weekend? Snowing lightly this morning and the roads had enough snow sticking to make things a little slick in spots. Kim and I met up with the SF running gang to begin the run. 

Had quite a few runners out today despite the weather.  Actually with the light snow and not much wind the weather wasn't too bad. Not too cold either. The main problem was just the slick spots on some of the roads.

Ran with the gang for 5 or 6 miles then I was in dire need of the bathroom at the park so Kim and I parted ways with the group and did our own thing for a while. Felt pretty sluggish for much of the run, I think I must have some minor bug this week causing my wimpiness and GI distress the last few days.

Finished up solo for the last 5 or 6 miles, actually got feeling better toward the end, maybe the endorphines kicked in.
