8 miles

out, around lake a, and back; 8.3 miles; 1:25:01/139

No running yesterday as I was sick. I took just my second sick day from work in 7.5 years. Today was very slow, but not as bad as Tuesday. It was 23 degrees with 13 mph winds at 6am.
I wore my warm tights, a long sleeve tech shirt, with my thick long sleeve tech shirt over it, my vest, my winter hat, fleece gloves, and my neck gator! Normally this would be way overdressed for me, but I wanted to be cautious today. The neck gator worked well. I pulled it up over my mouth and was able to breath in relatively warm air. It hurts to breath cold air when I have a cold like this.

Time/heart rate was pretty dreadful. It was a minute worse than my first run back after the marathon (at the same heart rate). I was fine a few days after that, so hopefully that will hold true this time as I have a half marathon on Sunday. I'm looking forward to the end of my racing extravaganza so I can get my base mileage back up.
