Once again the weather is unseasonably warm. I dressed in shorts, synthetic sleeveless shirt as my base layer, long sleeve synthetic and a orange cotton sleeveless shirt for visibility. I wore gloves for the first half and then stuffed them in my shorts when I got too warm for them and my high vis ball cap. I was very comfortable for the run especially after I took off my gloves. About 10 minutes after I got in the house, just after TheWife got outside for her run, it started to pour – she will come back in spitting and sputtering about that – I got lucky.
The run itself was really good, I focused on maintaing my stride and form, especially the last mile when I was getting tired. It is then that I tend to go back to bad habits and heel strike while running, today I did a little better forefoot striking during the last mile, but it is not to the point where it is automatic yet.
Even though I wasn’t pushing I still came within 7 seconds of last weeks run. That makes me feel like I am making progress!
Quality of Run: Very Good
Time of Run: 10:40A.M.
Weather: Overcast with a 5-10mph breeze out of the North. Rained about 10 minutes after I got back.
There I got my long run in for the week and it is supposed to be cold and rainy the rest of the day and tomorrow, it might be a good day to take a day of, we will see.
