Training Run

Distance: 6 miles
Time: 55:16
Pace: 9:12 min/mi

Comments: Cold front coming in later this week. And while I'm prepared to endure it for my miles, I'm planning on having my rest days during the worst of it. So six miles for me this morning.

I started a little stiff and my legs felt a little rubbery. Thankfully that eased up after the first mile and I dropped back into a comfortable pace. I didn't really have any issues at all after that, just cruising to the finish.

Haven't decided if I'll run tomorrow morning or afternoon but definitely one of the two.

Training Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 37:22
Pace: 9:20 min/mi

Comments: After the 20 miler this weekend, I was willing to take whatever I could get this morning. And my expectations were not particularly high. I was completely wrecked after that long run.

So I was very cautious at the start and nervous about the achy spots that showed up to say "Hi" as I got going. But then, to my delighted surprise, they all faded away as I got warmed up. After the one mile mark I pretty much cruised the whole way.

In short, nothing less than a fantastic run to start the new year.
