4/5/12 Training

This morning’s early run felt really good.  The rain held off, so I was able to get my run in outside.  The cooler weather and breeze were a bit refreshing.  The run was 7.11 miles in 1:03:10.  Definitely a slower pace than the last few runs, but hitting the road so early in the morning was a victory in itself.  I had a strange sense of accomplishment (or insanity) as I ran passed a McDonald’s that had not opened yet.  What a warped sense of accomplishment . . .

My legs were not as heavy as I thought they might feel today after last night’s run.  I think the cooler weather helps a lot with a shorter turnaround between workouts.  Today’s mileage keeps me on pace for a higher weekly total, which I feel really good about as I continue to build my base.
