Campus Run

Got in five recovery miles this evening after grad school. Opted to run a hilly .8 mile loop on the University of Southern Maine campus several times until I got the miles in. This was a safe option given it was night... the area is well lit and there were no worries about traffic.

The multiple loops weren't as boring as I thought it'd be. Unusually warm out and light rain falling throughout the run made it kind of pleasant. Felt great and was holding back from going faster, always a good sign.

Ran 5.0 miles @ 8:53/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 136/152
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Mid-upper 50s, light rain.
Shorts, long sleeved shirt.

Nice mild night for a run. Sometimes those loops are kind of a fun game - you stayed on pace well and sounds like the recovery is complete!

I love those kind of runs......comfortable and easy enough terrain to allow peaceful thoughts to ramble around the brain
