There is a cold snap in Virginia! I started my morning jog just before 6 AM, and it was a brisk 65° and the humidity was only 35%. I chose a hilly course with four new streets. I was a bit disappointed in the way I slowed down. It's like each hill subtracts X seconds off of every subsequent quarter-mile - independent of terrain. But, I won't complain too much because at 4.6 miles I felt like stopping but I kept going until I had hit 6.5 miles.
Okay, I take it back - I will complain too much: ARRRRGGGHHH!!!!!
I averaged 160 bpm, and got a 10:17 pace out of it. I think my breathing was actually keeping up. Hopefully the legs won't be mad at me tomorrow, because it will be nice out. Then I'll take it easy because my next 5K is on the 4th of July.
The Possum Ridge 5K results were finally posted. I finished 3 of 6 in my age group, and 33 of 76 overall. Even if you weed out the 13 walkers (15+ pace), I'm pretty much in the middle. Um, thanks Kentucky!
I might have some good news to post tomorrow ...
