There is a front passing through here so when I got out this morning it was really windy and cold. Deciding where to go was easy, just run downwind until I was warmed up, and do the upwind leg on the way home. I did my 5 minute warm up walk then started my run, and I was really feeling like "screw this, I'm going home" but we have a client with a mast in the boat yard, so I decided to go see it, and after that I ran out to Clement St, and I could see the light at Park street, and thought that it wasn't that far, I could make it. When I passed a friend's house (which is a 10 minute walk from home) I checked and I was on track for about a 30 minute session, But only 25 minutes of that would be running, and I told myself, "you're better than this, you can do 30" so I extended my run. In the end I was out 39 minutes, and did 3.2 miles. I worked on varying my pace some. I watched my heart rat a lot, just to see what was going on, and it stays around 171 the whole time. My breathing feels pretty consistant and regular. All in all, it felt pretty good today.
