Post-Storm Awesomeness

With temps in the mid-20s and the sun shining brightly, it felt pretty tropical out and it was a welcome change from the snow the past few days.

Roads were actually in better shape than I had anticipated and I had decided to change my plans from doing 10 miles at an easy pace to a moderate pace. Ended up with a marathon-pace and it felt very comfortable and easy. The heart rate mirrored that feeling, and the average stayed just below 150 which was great to see.

Really solid run. Hope the weather Saturday and Saturday night cooperates and the Mid Winter Classic is still on for Sunday. Of course, as of now I'm planning on it being a go. Today's run will make it easier mentally to keep the pace easy the next few days leading up to the race.

Ran 10.2 miles @ 7:16/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 149/162
Paved roads, patches of slush.
Moderately hilly.
Mid 20s, sunny.
Saucony Kinvara, long pants, windbreaker, short sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.
