This week is kind of an important one. I feel it's vital to get in some key workouts and mileage, more to remind the legs of what they're supposed to be doing before I begin a two week taper for Sugarloaf.
Today that meant a ten mile tempo run. Went pretty well. I was a bit underdressed with the persistant cold rain and also it was a bit breezy, but aside from that, it's hard to complain. It otherwise felt pretty smooth.
Cooled down with another two and a half or so miles. Began to really feel chilly then and was glad to get back to the car. In fact, at that point I was pretty miserable. Far cry from the weather in Boston two weeks ago.
Ran 10.0 miles @ 6:39/mile pace.
c/d Ran 2.6 miles @ 8:02/mile pace.
Mid 40s, overcast, light rain, breezy.
