De La Sol

With spring fast approaching, the sun continues to climb higher in the sky each day. Its brilliance gives the illusion of warmth even if it's still a bit chilly out. Such was the case today. Even with the breeze, it still felt about ten degrees warmer than it actually was.

Legs felt about as sore as I'd expect them to after yesterday's race (still stoked about how I did). Easy pace on a hilly route was on tap. Felt pretty good overall.

Looking ahead for the week, I'd like to have fresh legs for the Midcoast Half Marathon on Sunday. Will take it pretty easy this week as a result. Would like to get some turnover in mid-week just to keep the legs remembering. Might opt for a light session of 400M or 800M repeats.

Ran 5.6 miles @ 8:09/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Upper 20s, sunny, breezy.
Saucony Kinvara 2, long tights, windbreaker, long sleeved shirt, beanie, gloves.

No rest for the wicked. Take it easy for the week and all the best for the Half next weekend.
