Seven Easy Miles

Ran 7.1 miles @ 8:13/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Weather: Upper 20s, partly sunny. Windy with snow furries.

The purpose today was recovery. It was nice to just trot along with the only agenda to take it easy and get in the miles. Pretty cold out today and the run even began with a few snow flurries which was nice. Pretty windy out also, but since I was taking it easy, there were no worries about it slowing me down.

The Asics continue to live up to expectactions. They feel extremely comfortable and are pretty lightweight for trainers. I really love the fit. I've still yet to experience anything with them that would lead me to believe they are not the perfect shoe. Nice!

Tomorrow calls for another marathon pace workout. Normally I'd do it on Friday, but I have to drive up to Ellsworth for work on that day. I'm toying with the idea of camping out at Acadia National Park for a night since I'll be up there. Depends on what the weather does.

So nice for you to have found the perfect fit.

I don't think the weather is supposed to be that great this weekend. However, you should definitely get some running in on the Carriage Roads at ANP - absolutely wonderful.
