Power-up

   The weather is perfect! 40 degrees with wonderful sunshine!! A slight north breeze kept reminding me it's still Winter! I have not rested well lately, for some reason? Lots on my mind I guess. I was so busy yesterday I wasn't able to run, plus I was exhausted! Didn't rest well again, but I was determined to run today. I can't let up! So hills here I come. I noted that my reps were slower than normal. The fatigue obviously was telling on me. I kept pushing and found a pace I could keep, I actually did 14 X.17 hills/ 5.05 miles total in 1:06:15. I had my annual check-up today. I feel good when I go because my overall fitness is excellent. So many of my friends, colleagues, relatives, etc, are in poor condition. Running isn't a cure all but man it helps! Hope it's going well for you! Peace!

I haven't been sleeping well lately myself and have found I grow fatigued sooner during my runs. I hope you can get some good rest soon. I agree that running sure does make a huge difference in overall health and wellness.

Running is great but you need rest from time to time.

I hope you nip that sleeping thing soon...I don't sleep that well and I know how draining it can be. Glad you had a clean bill of health at the physical today, though. Maybe the doc helped give you some sleeping better suggestions!!

Happy New Year, Mark! I hope you have a wonderful year!!!

Rough week
