Spring? Is that you?
Not only did the temperatures rise above freezing today, but we also hit 41 degrees! To celebrate, I chopped ice off of our driveway for about an hour, then went for a run. Instead of running 18-20 miles, I had time for only 2 hours of running because of an appointment this afternoon. I hopped between puddles and covered 14.63 miles in 1:58 for an 8:03 pace. Again, my avg HR was 150 and I maxed at 185. Now if I only knew when that happened! My legs were feeling good, but I am looking forward to some speed workouts this week. To have a cruising pace of right around 8 minute miles is great, especially for this early in the year, but I'm looking forward to bringing that cruising pace into the 7:30 range.
