Training Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 35:54
Pace: 8:58 min/mi

Comments: Another unplanned and unwanted break in training. Keeping up with the routine is going to be a real challenge with my new work responsibilities. And the weekly arctic blast isn't helping any either.

This run went very well except for the blasted wind. Obviously, my legs are pretty damn fresh and I did try to eat better over the past several days. Sleep has been uneven but I felt rested for once this morning.

So while I felt good strength-wise, there was a bit of a raggedness to my conditioning. No remedy for that except for getting out and getting the runs in. We'll see how the rest of this week goes.
