I knocked off 20 miles yesterday in some chilly conditions: low 50s, misty, cloudy, wet, windy. Not too bad unless all you were wearing was a short sleeved shirt and shorts. That was me. I was not shivering but it was close for awhile there.
The good news is that I held or improved my pace through the course of the run. The intervals when I hit the lap button varied but the paces went like this: 10:34, 10:29, 10;49 and 10:26. I felt a surge of energy after I had a bottle of Zippfizz after the first 13 miles. That stuff with its gazillion parts B12 vitamins gets me going.
From here on it's gradual taper until the race on February 17. From the books I am reading I am inclined to up my frequency of running, keeping them short.
Once home, stretched, showered and fed yesterday, I sat in the sun room reading the paper. Then the phone rang and I was off to be quoted in the paper. It was a long day, having run the 20 then standing around to deal with the incident and the media. I had a hard time getting moving this morning.
