Went out for a longish run on the roads around campus. Felt stronger the further I went. Decided to stop after rolling my ankle pretty bad at mile 8.

Went up to Kingman farm with a friend. Got a nice easy 4 miler WITHOUT rolling my ankle. Good morning even though it didn't snow. Now hoping for a big fantasy day. 

Since last week was absolute heck, this week looks to be fairly enjoyable. Hopefully it'll be a good running week.

I hate losing an hour of daylight. Got in a sore/achey run though after work. Seriously, why does the sun set at 4:30?

10x400m @77-79. Shot for 80s and ended up feeling 1000x better than I thought I would. Last 2 were tough but I probably could've gotten 12. Nice to have a good workout. Now I have a soccer game at 10:15 PM tonight. Who schedules intramural games that late?

Had a nice night run around Exeter, NH with a friend that lives there. We explored the trails behind Phillips Exeter academy (some super old, super prestigious, super expensive high school). Taking Thursday off since it's a 13 hour work day.

AM- Easy 5 from the house around some trails. Supposed to be snowing all morning but I didn't see a single flake. That's my luck.

Tempo workout on the treadmill. 5k in 18:40. Super happy just to get a run in considering it was 5 when I got out of work and already dark and frigid.

Absolutely perfect weather today. 55 and sunny with no wind. Decided to spend it on the track. Did a 6x800 at 2:45. Went 2:47, 2:44, 2:45, 2:45, 2:47, 2:42. Very good workout. Plus this week's mileage was in the 30's. Not something I'd usually be happy about but its a local maxima at the moment. Friday's should be runnable now since my series of meetings in the afternoon are over. Next week I find out which research group I'm joining. I'm on pins and needles about that.

Played a basketball game on a team of nothing but physical science grad students. Should've won but as usual with intramural basketball the officiating was attrocious. Rolled my ankle pretty hard on a fast break so I'll have to take it easy for a couple days.

Yesterday felt like winter at home. 61 and sunny. Today felt like I moved back north. 35 and 30mph sustained winds. So I ran at the windiest place I could think of. Went out to Adams Point on the Great Bay. Ran a 2.5mi out and back. On the way back felt brave enought to run on some trails (bum ankle felt good but swollen). Took one of my top 10 most scenic leaks ever off of a cliff overlooking the bay at sunset.

4 mile tempo run in 24:44. I was aiming for 6:00 pace so I'll blame the extra 44 seconds on the traffic I had to deal with around campus. Either way I'll take it.

Easy run exploring some new trails. Had to run between my morning classes and the classes I teach at night.

Update on me: Sunday was a planned day off as I was beat up from skiing. Monday was a planned day off because of a major exam. Tuesday was an unplanned day off because I woke up sick but still had to proctor and grade an exam.

Got in a nice run on some dirt roads this afternoon. Its been stupid rainy today. Almost 2 inches here while it snowed at home. I hate weather. Barely made it back before pitch black.

Did a loop in the wildlife preserve down the road. I thought it'd be longer but I got 4.5 out of it. Cold and windy.

Skied all morning at Loon Mtn. Pure awesomeness. Not too cold, crowded or icy. Didn't realize how much distance you cover while skiing. I hit 24+ miles in less than 3 hours.
