Easy 5 in the morning, I felt suuuuuuuuuuper stiff. Probably a combination of Saturday's run and the colder weather. I loosened up after a couple miles so it was alright. 

In the afternoon I went up to the high school to run the chocolate milk mile with the team but wisely opted out when I discovered that it'd been changed to the root beer mile. I got some sweet footage though. I ran another 4 with Coach after their practice. I felt a lot better than I did in the morning.

I went out later for dinner with my family at Red Lobster to celebrate my birthday! 21 baby, woohoo!!! Cake and ice cream at my grandma's afterward. Good way to finish off a great day.

I woke up this morning with very little motivation to go running. Parents out of town (me being alone in the house) + high school team on their 2 week break (no running buddy) + cold temps and monotonous training + too many episodes of the Office the night before = perfect storm to prevent me from running. I conquered the obstacles in the morning and got out for an easy 4, but I was planning on getting out for another 5 or 6 later in the evening after work and didn't make it out for that run. I don't know, I was just kind of in a funk today. Moving forward!

I had way more motivation to run today but I still only made it out for an easy 4 later in the evening. I would've gone longer with more light but it was dark outside. Last Saturday I realized that I had adquired a decent amount of money from working these past few months and I splurged and bought some running gear. Today I tested out 1 of the new pairs of shoes, the adios 3, which I'll probably use more for speed work. They felt good, my calves were pretty tight at the beginning of my run though which caused a little bit of discomfort, but I finished the run off feeling great and got a good stretch in afterward.

Just an easy 4 this morning. I don't think I'll go out for more tonight. My lower calves and ankles are a little sore so I'll do some strength exercises and maybe core.
