Fitness Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 39:13
Pace: 9:47 min/mi

Comments: First run in the sunlight in quite awhile. That was a mistake with the current balmy conditions. I was slogging as hard as yesterday's run in half the time. At the end, my shirt was completely soaked with sweat. I mean completely.

The good news is that my legs felt strong enough to get me through the worst of it and my energy levels were sufficient to enable them to make it. The problem area was pretty clearly conditioning. The one bright spot there is my splits didn't range quite as far and my last mile wasn't my slowest.
