I did 6.8 miles this morning before work and another 5 at lunchtime today. I really like this time of year when the weather is warm but not too hot and I can get out and run at lunch. I have a few nice loops I can do through our office campus but within a few weeks, it starts to get too hot that time of day and when I run I sweat... a lot. Even with the available showers at work it takes me too long to cool back down to a comfortable level and the last thing I want is to be sitting in a meeting sweating through the back of my shirt an hour after a run.
I did just over 7 this morning and then another 5 at lunch. Man it was bright out and of course I left my running sunglasses back at home... I was really tempted to run with my Wayfareres but figured that was probably a recipe for disaster.
6.5. Finally remembered to pull the heart-rate monitor out of the glovebox for this morning's run. Eye-opener! At a very sustainable heart rate, my pace was just a few seconds off my 5k PR. Will definitely keep using this.
