AM: 7 easy + standard core routine, stretch, foam rolling
cold, in the high 20s but far less windy. More comfortable because I dressed for winter. This may be the last time I run in tights until late November, as it's no longer going to be below freezng at night any time too soon. I'd wager we won't see a below freezing temp until November. I've been wrong about the weather before though.
I decided to run a race with my friend Jill and to pace her in her attempt at a fast road 5K. I went ahead and started from home and ran toward DC and ran a couple of 5:40-5:50 miles at the tail end of the run. My legs were a little tired but not bad. It's actually very easy to run 18:00 5K pace and the I'll admit that the fact that I could have dropped a sub 5:00 mile at any moment to win the race by a lot was kind of a cool thought. I never did this though since was not there to race. It was actually a lot of fun (more fun thatn suffering yesterday). My legs were definitely tired afterward though.
