Daniels Park - noon
70's!, clear, no wind
mind/body - strong!
How can I pass up a beautiful day like today! Springtime in Colorado can be a bit tumultuous so we have to take advantage of days like today. I previously said that training for a hundred anything less than 16 myles is a wimpy effort - I guess that qualifies today's run.
I felt really good and cruising pretty easy. First/last splits were: 6:37/6:29 with an avg. pace of 7:00. I could have easily gone 16 but I know I'm in the realm of injury so as long as I get out each day then I'm good. I wore my Pearl Izumi Peak XC today and I have to admit, the more I wear them the more I like them. They are a minimalist shoe but I think they strengthen my foot and calf, hopefully to prevent any further injury.
