5 enjoyable miles this morning.  I thought it was going to be cold and windy but it was warm and breezy instead.  In fact, it was warmer than it has been in a long time at 5am, 49 degrees.  Weird.  I don't remember the average for the first half because I reset and set a slow pace alert.  I've never run with one before.  I tried to set a fast alert too but they have to be like 90 seconds apart.  Oh well.  Anyway, I set the slow pace for a fairly relaxing 8:45.  I tried to run relaxed but it definitely didn't allow me to be complacent.  I don't quite get it though.  With a fair number of beeps reminding me that I needed to speed up my average pace was 8:07, no where near 8:45. I was trying to hit 8:30 but the beeping wouldn't let me.

Beautiful clear, crisp, still, quiet morning for a relaxing run.  I really enjoyed the weather this morning, 26 according to my thermometer.  I dressed perfect this morning and was very comfortable.  I saw a shooting star as well; cool.  After a warm up mile I turned on the slow pace alert and was very consistent.  Miles 2 through 5 were all in the 8 teens.
