This is a step-down week, so just a short run on tap for today. Felt full of energy and all around great. The weather helped. Though it was in the mid-30s, it felt much warmer with the lack of wind and cloudless sky with a sun that is increasingly rising higher into the sky as we approach spring. I shed the windbreaker about a mile and a half into the run and was comfortable in just a short sleeved shirt.
Seven weeks until Boston. Wow, coming up so fast. I must say, it really adds to spring. I look forward to spring every year... warmer temps, trail runs where my shoes meet mud, dirt and rocks and not snow, running in shorts, baseball season... Just throwing the Boston Marathon in the mix makes it even nicer.
Ran 5.6 miles @ 7:13/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - N/A (pffffft, didn't feel like wearing the strap)
Paved roads, several puddles, some patches of slush.
Mid 30s, sunny.
Brooks Mach 11, long pants, short sleeved shirt, windbreaker (shed 1.5 miles into the run), beanie, gloves
