Slushy Roads

Roads were already very slushy, and a light snow that was falling throughout only served to makes things a bit slick as the run went on. I was careful though, not hesitating to slow down especially on the downhills.

Good run, and goal was just to get in 12 miles on the hills at an easy pace. Heart rate was a touch higher than I would have liked, but I think that's a direct result of the extra work of running in the slush and snow. Quads are feeling pretty sore, I think that's because of the bad road conditions the past few days.

Ran 12.2 miles @ 8:04/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 142/159
Paved roads, coated with slush and snow.
Very hilly.
Lower 20s, overcast, light snow throughout.
Saucony Kinvara, long pants, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt, refl. vest, beanie, gloves.
