15 in the Thaw

Warmer weather means all that snow we've gotten is melting pretty fast. Lots of big puddles to contend with in the mile to mile and a half section of this route at the beginning and end which goes through town I teach in. Once out on the more country roads it was much better.

Lot's of strange pockets of especially warm or especially cool air. You'd feel them for several seconds as you ran through them before the temperature felt "normal" again. The cold pockets were around the bigger snow banks, but the warm pockets... no idea.

Ran 15.0 miles @ 8:26/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 142/157
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Lower-mid 40s, mostly cloudy.
Shorts, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt, refl. vest.

The temps are great, the puddles however...

It hasn't quite reached shorts temps here yet, at least not in the early morning - though I have been awfully tempted.

Good job on the 15, especially following Saturday's 50k.
