Another Deposit

If miles were nickels...

Scheduled workout: 15 miles easy. Target pace: none. Purpose: Recovery / Volume.

Results: 15.6 miles in 2:19:11 (8:55 average pace). 129 HR

The "real" running time was 2:11:42 (8:27 pace). 3 x 5.2 mile loops in bright moonlight and a beautiful sunrise. Pace splits:

Loop 1: 8:52
Loop 2: 8:20
Loop 3: 8:08

It felt very nice to be running easily and relaxed this morning. The first two laps went very well and the last one did until near the end when I started to feel a little tired. Plus the temperature dropped 8 degrees while I was out there (and I think it was all on the last loop). I started at 18F and ended at 10F. I would prefer it the other way around.

The moon has indeed looked very beautiful the past few nights with the clear skies.

If miles were nickels...I would only have 30 cents to my name for today. Can we increase the exchange rate to something like, if miles were $100 bills? Or how about if meters were nickels? That would help us low mileage folks.

The temp at the end of your run was the same as our temp today.
