Global Warming Run

Ran 10.8 miles @ 7:47/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Weather: temps in mid 50s, sunny.

I set off for my run this afternoon and shortly after the first mile, I was pulling up my long sleeves as I was clearly overdressed. It's mid-December.. what gives?!?!

Anyway, the run itself was fine. Fortunately, my very gracious boss gave me permission to head out a little earlier so I could get my full run in before grad school this evening. I felt a little creaky at first, most likely from the rest day yesterday, but after my legs warmed up I felt fluid as I rolled along the ups and downs of the hills. Good workout with a nice progression in split times, starting out at 8:09/mile pace and working down to 7:14/mile.

Don't worry we'll get snow and sleet in a day or so. Enjoy the spring like weather while you can! Good work.

I know what you mean - yesterday's run was in shorts and a long sleeve technical. Just not right for December.

Take it while you can , February will be here soon enough.

Nice progression on the hills.

Very nice progression. These warmer temps have allowed for some easier running.
