05/09/2014 AM Damp 5 mile run

A damp 5 miler is better than running on the treadmill since it ins't too cold.  Although I am not a morning person AT ALL, I am happy to get my run in ASAP as long as it's after 9am-ish.

Today was no exception, I ran 5 miles outside in the damp humidity.  I kept the pace a tiny bit faster than normal comfort.  I averaged a 7:57/mile pace for the run, finishing in 39:46.  This falls in line with my interest in having different paces in my repertoire.  

The ability to run at a pace that you recall from some training and/or racing time, is vital.  If your body remembers it, the pace is not a shock.  

This week is shaping up to be a strong one.  I am about 2 months out from Running with the Devil.  I need to insert more hill workouts, but I like where I am.
