Training Log - Friday, October 21, 2011

Rich and I met up at my house at 6AM for an easy 5 miles at 8:30 pace. It was the coldest day of the year so far with temperatures in the high 30s. We headed towards UAH for one loop. I was actually bundled up too much, as I always do when the weather turns cold for the very first time. I figured I'd give a pair of running tights that is supposed to speed recovery a shot. Aside from the difficulty involved in putting on those darn things, they worked pretty well.

I ended up putting on a short sleeve tech shirt, my winter running jacket, gloves and a winter fleece running hat. Yes, it was slight overkill, but I really didn't feel like being cold this morning. I had decided that I'd rather be extremely sweaty than cold for an hour. Rich and I were able to maintain the required pace while chatting away about our long term racing plans for next year without any problems. Nice to know that I still know how to move, even after having put in a fast 9 miles at 7:20 pace, yesterday.
