Another gorgeous day here in Crofton, MD. The temperature was a gorgeous 50 degrees. Since I have just moved here, I have no idea if this is normal winter weather or not – but I am certainly enjoying it! Two days outside in a row!
My first mile was done at an 8:29 pace, and the second .6 of a mile was done at 8:36.
While I know that an 8:30 mile is an easy pace for many runners, for me? Well, I guess I didn’t really run it “easy” considering my treadmill pace is 9:00 – 10:00.
Temperature was perfect though, and I can say I enjoyed every moment of it. I even tried to slow down after my first mile – but it apparently didn’t hold for long. I blame the fact that I know I will be on the treadmill for the next five days – simply due to the temperature that early, combined with the darkness.
I did get a bright new orange running jacket for today’s workout – which my photographer (my daughter today) was nice enough to snap some pictures of me! As you can see, It was also a Vibram Five Fingers run day!
My wife was at home doing Jillian Michael’s 30 day shred. After she finished, we both did 20 minutes of Yoga.
