Man it seems like this has been a long week.
With the weather more spring like, highs in the mid 60's with a steady 15mph wind, I headed out after work to get my 8 mile run in.
The wind was kinda a cross breeze for the 1st half, and more in my face on the 2nd half of the 8 miler.
I did a loop from home, through Mercer County Park, and back home. While I didn't see as many runners out as I did on Tuesday, the few I saw didn't wave. Oh well, I'll continue to do what I do, and hopefully a nice gesture will rub off on the runners I pass.
I felt a bit tired in the legs, from pushing it on the 6 miler the day before. I tried to slow my pace down. I kind of did that.
What I have tried to do, and succeeded so far, is to run more upright, not hunched over. I think it has helped in my stride, and breathing. The other thing I have worked on, is to finish the last mile strong. It's a nice confidence builder, when you last mile is your fastest.
Hopefully the weather holds out today, they are calling for rain, and I'd like to get out and run another 6 miler.
