It was quite cold starting out. My eyes were watering and my face felt frozen. I kept moving my fingers to keep them from freezing. After a couple of miles I felt like I'd warmed up (it helped that the sun appeared from behind the clouds). After I left Highland Glen Park, I started pushing a little harder (my pace was only 8:20 as I was going uphill at that point). Turned right by the bank and headed east feeling pretty strong. Pushed the pace the last couple of miles. I need to get back to the point where I can run this route five times a week.
Ave pace 8:21, ave HR 157
