Almost died cause the whole thing was just running over snow and ice, but we made it. 

Longest run we've done so far! Not too bad, kept it nice and slow at a 8:24/mile pace.

Nice and slow, but a lot of hills today.

Shoulda gone in the morning before the snow hit, but I missed my chance and got to run in a blizzard with about 8 inches on the ground.

Guess I could have just hit the gym and ran there but death comes before treadmills in my life.

Went a little faster today, I was by myself. Felt really good! mildly challenging, but over all very doable. Just slowly getting faster line upon line and precept upon precept as they say.

Mile splits were 7:20, 7:02, 7:19, 7:16

Easy 3 mile with jaxon. I actually felt warmed up by the time we hit 3 miles haha. My body was telling me to keep going. I guess that's a good sign, maybe I'll attempt a 5 miler on Saturday.

Woke up a bit late and only had time for 2 today. Hopefully I can get 4 on Saturday or something to make up.

Got to run in the snow today! Played some basketball with the bros and then went for a quick 3 mile run. It was pretty cold and I felt like I was going really slow the whole time but it turns out that my pace was actually much faster than it has been the last few weeks. I was consistently around 7:30 and it averaged to a 7:33. 

I guess that's a good sign that I'm starting to get into slightly better shape. I'll try to keep all of my runs this week sub-8 I think.
