Today is Tuesday, March 23, 2010, and it is a good day for a run.

A great day for a run, actually; after this weekend’s cold snap, temps were back up in to the fifties and the sun was out. I did my Tuesday two-mile easy run, and enjoyed it the whole way. No interesting stories to tell, although afterward, when I was stretching in the gym, my friend/co-worker Nick was picking my brain about my run today and my running in general, because he and another co-worker had just made plans to start running outside together since it is nice out. I’ve been having more and more conversations with co-workers about running lately; probably because it is on people’s minds now that it is getting nice enough to make people want to get outside and do stuff after being inside all winter. Also, I am still actively pursuing getting people signed up for my work Crazylegs team, so I’ve been putting the bug in people’s collective ear, so to speak. Anyway, I told him I would share some courses I have laid out around work.

Today is Wednesday, March 17, 2010, and it is a good day for a run.

Yesterday was just an easy run day, two miles—a mile out, and a mile back, nothing much to report. The weather was nice, and except for the fact that I almost stopped an eighth of a mile too soon, because I was on auto-pilot mentally, and stopped for a second at the point where many of my courses finish (but not the one I was running at the time), it was a pretty by-the-book run.

Today is Saturday, March 13, 2010, and it is a good day for a run.

I haven’t written in a while, for various reasons; partly because I was busy with another writing project, partly because I’ve been with the kids and such, but mostly just because I have been lazy about it. I have not been lazy about running, however, so now I have three runs in the past week to catch up on.

Today is Tuesday, January 26, 2010, and it is a good day for a run.

And today, I ran! For the first time in over a week, I actually managed to run. It was a short, boring, and somewhat angry run, but it was a run nonetheless.

Today was my first day tying on my running shoes since my long run nine days ago. I was very apprehensive about it, but I felt it was time for me to test the waters after “resting” the heel all last week. When I first put on my left shoe, that old familiar pressure point was there, but it didn’t feel too bad. I was so determined to run outside today, I didn’t even bring any backup inside clothes. There was just no way I was going to be on the elliptical today.

Today is Tuesday, January 12, 2010, and it is a good day for a run.

It looked like it was going to be a great day for a run: the sun was shining, the temperature was mild; it was going to be a beautiful day and I couldn’t wait to get out in it. I even had dug up an old five-mile course by work that I had forgotten about and that I was sure would be clear of snow. There was only one problem: my left heel hurts like hell.
