Dry Air

One of our cats is getting over an upper respiratory infection, but if him repeatedly attacking our feet and being a general pain in the arse in the middle of the night was any indicator, I'd say he's feeling better.

As a result of the interrupted sleep, I was a bit slower this morning and didn't get out the door to run until around 9:30am. However, yesterday's cold front brought in some much dryer air which was a real treat to run in.

Plan was to run by feel and let that dictate the pace. I think that's a pretty good pattern to follow post race... day one, run really slow for recovery and shake things loose. The next day, run by feel to better gauge how much I've recovered. Then it's easier (and safer) to map out the game plan for the next week or so.

Ran 10.1 miles @ 7:46/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Upper 60s to lower 70s, sunny.
Saucony Kinvara 3, shorts, short sleeved shirt, cap.
