I am probably the snobbiest runner in terms of surface and location. I like it dirty, hilly and out and back. None of this round and round bullshit like I keep getting sucked into at Shelly Lake. It's fine if you're jogging. However, ya'll know homey don't play dat. I like to run not jog. So the end effect is a spun out feeling like a washing machine on spin cycle.
Well, my 8 miles on spin cycle are done.
mile 1: 7:36
mile 2: 7:08
mile 3: 7:16
mile 4: 6:59
mile 5: 7:11
mile 6: 7:00 (cruel split)
mile 7: 7:06
mile 8: 6:43
So a mile warm up and some pretty even pacing. Avg pace: 7:07
Ah, which reminds me. New shirt by Nike Pro Combat. I got this yellow color at Raleigh Running Outfitters. Thanks Jim. This shirt rocks. I was able to ditch the jacket and run in this one layer in 36 degrees. Here's a full picture. I like my color better than below:
I have 25 miles on deck for sat/sun so I'm sure I'll have some good stories....later dudes.
