Slow Start, Stronger Finish

Ran the Hansen's Ridge Loop from the school, and the first two and a half miles going uphill felt tough. The headwind didn't help much either. The pace was okay, but it still seemed like more work than it should have been.

However, things felt like they clicked into place a little better on the downhills... not so much because gravity and the wind were on my side, which did help, but I was also warmed up.

Tomorrow will be a day off, since it's parent-teacher conference night and it will be a 13 hour day. This will be made tougher if I follow through with my plans of waking up at 3am to watch the meteor shower.

Ran 7.1 miles @ 7:37/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 156/174
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Mid 50s, sunny.
Asics GT-2140, shorts, short sleeved shirt.

We wake up to "meteor showers" at 3am all the time now. It's not that bad.

Hope it's a nice clear night like they predict. That's a cruising pace!

Im delving into the winter gear and trying to be as comfy as possible. Did you get to see and meteors, or was it like here in BC, cloudy for the show?
