Snotcicles

Ran 5.3 miles @ 7:05/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Mid teens, very windy.

The insane winds continue, and the first half of my run was right into it and up a very gradual hill. It made for a very good resistance workout. The route I did today was an out and back, and I kept reminding myself that the return trip would be cake. It was, and I hit the last two full miles at 6:31 and 6:22 respectively.

I also had a very impressive array of snotsicles hanging from the beard. It was rather cool looking. Made me feel like a yeti.

The trend for most of the week with the winds is that they've been picking up throughout the day and peaking in the afternoon, which is when I do most of my runs during the work week. I'm looking forward to getting an earlier start in the morning tomorrow to hopefully minimize it.

Good thing you are in taper mode right now - so slower runs against the wind doesn't feel as bad.
