I know 16F and feels like 16F (the temp app said 0 wind – well it lied, there was a 5-10 mph breeze), so it was not warm, but at the same in comparison to subzero temps, at least it is pretty runnable. Oh Fred’s Coffee said it was 27, but that was in direct sunlight and it sure didn’t feel like 27F. Enough about the weather – it seems that is about all we talk about this year – well for good reason.
It was only Barry and I today, but it was still a good run. I wasn’t sure how I would do after yesterday’s tough interval/speed work session and really wasn’t expecting a lot. I do know that the hills hurt a lot more than usual.
Once I got through the hills, I was actually surprised with how well I felt, but would not have wanted to go any faster – that is for damn sure.
Barry did a great job of keeping me distracted and pushing/pulling me through the run, without him I know it would not have been nearly as much fun and definitely a lot slower.
