60s, strong North wind, dry
mind/body - eager
Prescribed workout: 60 minutes with 2 mile uptempo
Actual workout: 8 myles 56:23 avg. 7:02 - 2 mile uptempo in 11:25! avg. 5:42
The wind was nasty! Going out was a trudge but coming back with the wind at my back was fun to spin the legs fast! I was almost going 11 MPH during the 2 mile uptempo and the wind was still pushing me! And truth be told it was slightly downhill so that time really isn't all that impressive but I'll take it.
On another note, I picked up a new pair of PI shoes today called the Fuel XC. They're a new model to be released Spring 2010. The fit is somewhere in between the Peak XC and the SyncroSeek - just what most runners are looking for! More details to come!
