For your visual enjoyment.   Check out the link for the color definitions.  No, I am not running in this.  I will hit the gym.  Reading up on inversions we need a massive wind to remove it.  None coming up in the forecast for the week.  We are stuck in smuck.  Be thankful those of you outside the red zone.  May your runs outdoors be ever so wonderful.   Update:  10 miles at 8 min avg pace.  4 around the track, 6 on the TM.  I have a lot of tread missing on the bottom of my running shoes.  That must be why my bones have been aching the last week.  If I had time I'd post a picture of them.  They are PRETTY SCARY.  The fore and heel are destroyed.  Oooops.

Not sleeping well after night shifts.  Joints, mostly hips and sciatica, to the feet.  I am really achy, like just after having a baby.  So  I guess I will try my hardest NOT to run today.  I really need new sneakers.  They are so destroyed from the 60 mpw.  I am sure this air quality isn't helping.   Oh well, fresh air coming up soon.  We are leaving for California on Saturday morning after  I work two more nights.  Hello  Palm tree, warm air running.   To think we have to escape to California for cleaner air?

Of course at the first sign of  blue sky I headed outdoors.  Honestly the indoor quality of is not much better for me.  Since I have so many sensitivities to fragrances I think it doesn't help me that much to run indoors except perhaps for Monday when we were in the red.  We are still in the red but at least it doesn't LOOK IT.  Can actually see all the mountains.  A big sign for me to head outdoors.  Did a nice 10 mile loop on a snowy path below Lone Peak High school coming from American Fork.  Ran down Cedar Hills back roads to home.  Avg pace 8:13.   Last three miles 7:21, 7:11, 6:49.   Got a little bronchial cough at the end so I guess air quality still poor.  Oh well, much better than indoors by a large margin.  1/2 mile cooldown.  Off to orthodontist.  Lots of changes happening fast.  Braces off soon.  One month  :D.

Slept brief.  Not good.  Went Visiting Teaching at 130pm then ran 7 miles at 8:06 pace.  Two miles low 7s.  Picked up kids at school.  Decided to get three more in for a good wake me up cool down.  That was only a 10 minute between runs sweat starting to freeze.  Pace for 3---8:32.  INVERSION WORSE today...  but no time to go to gym and I like the outdoors better.  Warmer temps but a windchill today and the inversion makes it feel colder plus lack of sleep.  Off to work I go.

3 hours of sleep after getting home at 730am from a VERY busy shift.  No down time really.  Eventually snuck out of the house for a run.  Slowly made my way to the canal.  Trail was packed with snow, ice and some areas of mud.   Difficutl terrain so pace variable and actually I just focused on moving my legs in a running form.  I was beat.  Head in a cloud.  Ran  over 8 miles on the trail.  Thought I saw cougar tracks or maybe a rather large dog.  There have been cougars up there before so possibly.  Made me a little nervous that I could have been preyed upon.  Basically this was a snow shoe/ice skating run without the right equipment.  Pace 8:53 for 12.25 miles.  Slowest mile 9:41, quickest 8:11.  Just nice and steady to get it done.  Not sure I will be able to run tomorrow before we leave early in the am for California.
