Bitter cold this morning.  I'm going to have to start doubling up on the gloves.  Took awhile to warm up then felt decent the second half of the run.

Couldn't sleep last night so I was very tired during the run this morning.  Remembered my ear warmers and second pair of gloves so I was much more comfortable during the run.  First few miles were pretty blah but then started to feel a little better towards the end.  Started at 8:00/mile and sped up a little each mile finishing at 7:30.

Hilly run up 1800 S to the mouth of Mueller Park canyon.  I felt very "heavy" this morning while I was running.  Couldn't get the legs to move right.  The effort didn't kill me going up and I really didn't pound the pace coming down.  As I saw my reflection in a store window I realized my form looked really bad.  Too much bending at the waist.  This has always been a problem for me and I think the cause is that my backside is disproportionately bigger then the rest of my body and I bend at the waist to compensate.

Yesterday's downhill run aggravated my right ankle.  Kept the pace nice and easy and treated the run as a recovery run.

It took a little extra work to get myself out the door this morning.  Very cold so it took awhile to warm up.  Half way through the run I realized that I really don't push myself hard enough.  I get into a comfort zone and don't push the pace as much as I should.  I don't want to run so hard that it hurts but I should be going a little faster than I am.

What is that they say about people who do the same thing and expect different results?  Went to the LPT an hour before the club run to get in 8 miles before the club met (avg pace 7:45).  I forgot my fuel belt again so could only get a drink of Gatorade after 8 miles.  Ran 4.5 with Trevor and started to see spots again and feel hypoglycemic about 2.5 miles into the run.  It was not as bad as last week and lasted less than a mile.  Grabbed a drink and headed out for another 2.5 miles.  Averaged 6:50/mile with Trevor and 7:30 for the last 2.5.  Felt really good at 6:50 pace (aside from the spots).  Actually felt better running close to 7:00 than I did at 7:45.  Probably due to a better running economy at the faster pace.
