Had a nice little five mile run this afternoon. I think giving myself two days off after the 13.4 miler on Saturday was a good idea, even though it wasn't planned. Once warmed up today, the run felt pretty easy and the pace picked up, and I hit the last mile in 6:59 and it all just felt right.
Today was the warmest day of what is supposed to be a very frigid week. High temps only in the single digits are predicted by Thursday and Friday. Extra layers will be needed, fo' sho'!
Ran 5.0 miles @ 7:49/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 159/174
Paved roads, patches of snow and slush.
Upper 20s, overcast.
Long pants, fleece jacket, long sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
