Pace: 9:48 min/mi
Comments: This one was not fun at all. With a cold front coming through tonight, I thought it would be better to do a noon run today and not take the chance on rain messing up getting a run in tomorrow. Mistake.
First off it is pretty warm. Not hot, but enough to be significantly uncomfortable. Then there was the wind. It was brisk and constant and a complete pain in the ass. Lastly there was fatigue.
Three days in a row is not to be taken for granted with the constantly increasing long run mileage. I got slower by almost half a minute every mile of this run. I expect to feel pretty wiped out tomorrow but, hopefully, two days off (and cooler temperatures) will give me a good shot at the 12 miler on Sunday.
