Ran 6.2 miles @ 8:56/mile pace.
Upper teens, windy.
It felt good to hit the road again after the rest day yesterday. It's also nice knowing that I can take it relatively easy during the next two and a half weeks while I taper down.
Today I ran the first 5K with a couple of coworkers, one who never ran that distance before. They're doing great and are highly motivated, despite the weather. After they were done with the first 5K loop, I went out for another. That second one put in some faster times, but still well within recovery range (~8:15/mile), which is what I wanted.
Cold weather continues through the week. Doesn't matter much, I think we're all pretty used to it at this point.
