Just wanted to mix things up a little and shake the weekend out of my legs. I weaved around for a while and then continued my loop. Nothing bothered me today. 6:42 average, faster than I thought I would run today.

Tossed and turned last night while sleeping, so I didn't feel super rested when I woke up this morning. For the first half of my run my legs felt pretty dead/exhausted. This partially is probably due to playing foot twister last night at Home Evening. I did stop and poop at some newfound porta-potties. My legs didn't feel tired the second half of the run though. 6:38 average

6:41 average. I can't remember too much of this run, as I forgot to update this afterwards. I don't remember anything really hurting. Still trying to get my bowels used to this schedule and my new diet.

I wasn't confident with my prerun poop, so I ended up stopping moreso out of safety at the porta potty. I was trying to keep things a little easier today, but the second half ended up not really being relaxed. 6:45 average. My legs felt fairly good, but my IT bands felt a bit tight at the beginning.

My legs were very heavy today, and my breathing was harder than it normally is running how fast I was running, so that was an indicator that I was pretty tired. I also probably didn't sleep as much or drink as much as I needed to. 6:47 average. 

All the sitting I'm doing is killing my lower back and hips. I probably need to strengthen those areas.

Mentally I wasn't really ready to push hard, and with the weather I set out with the goal of enjoying the run. I experienceds all sorts of road conditions, including slushy and icy, so it wasn't exactly the best terrain for running fast anyways. During the last two and a half miles I really focused on driving my legs and keeping the form in my legs, which actually made a big difference in how well I was able to finish. 6:29 average.
