Business in the Front, Party in the Back

Temperatures were above freezing throughout my run this afternoon, but there was the wind to contend with. The route was more or less an out and back with a mini loop at the mid-point. Fought through a pretty fierce head wind for the first half that's up a very gradual uphill. But the last half was cake with the wind at the back, slight downhill, and warmed up muscles.

Roads were in good shape today. All the salt has now made the shoulders pretty clear of ice and snow. More snow (and cooler temps) expected tomorrow though, and what could be a pretty good-sized Nor'Easter on Sunday. Bring it on.

Ran 15.0 miles @ 7:47/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 149/161
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Upper 30s falling to mid 30s, mostly sunny, windy.
Long pants, fleece jacket, long-sleeved shirt, refl. vest, beanie, gloves (off and on)

I am envious of your 15-miler today, the time was there for me today but nothing else. Nice run!

I got in an easy 5 at lunch today, and boy was it messy! I ran on the roads and got back to the showers looking like I'd been at twin brook. Nice and warm though.
