5.05 miles (12.12.11)
The run was tough. It was cold. The dark and headlamp use was interesting too.
My shins didn't really hurt while running. It was the 2 days after that they were killing me.
I ran at North Park with Jen. I took my new Garmin and my old one. I was afraid I wouldn't get data on the new one and didn't want the first time I use it to be on a long run and my first one in awhile. (Now that I'm a slacker 5 miles is a long run instead of a short one)
Well I get there and can't even figure out how to turn on the GPS on the new watch so I only used the old one.
I don't think our times were too bad. Then I looked at my "very hard" training plan from http://smartcoach.runnersworld.com and it thought I should run 5 miles at 10:53 pace so I beat that. Too bad I only did the easy run for the week so far.
How do you handle running in the winter considering how it is dark a lot more and it is cold?
