04/19/2017 Brisk 6 miler, new revelations

Is that how you spell revelations?  I think so.  Anyway, I got out for a strong 6 miler today, pacing at 8:00/mile for the duration.  I thought it was going to be warmer when I got dressed, so I wore shorts and a long sleeve with a short sleeve over it.  It is only in the high 40's though, with some wind.  It was a little chilly out there.  I did have a revelation :), my legs didn't mind that temp.  It was my hands and my bald head.  I am used to wearing pants when ever it is below 60ish.  I am now, at the age of 43, realizing that my legs may not be the wimpy part of me.  It must be my geriatric hands and old, bald head.  

The run itself was uneventful.  I started with an 8:50 in the first mile and worked faster each tick, until my last mile was in 7:25.  Overall, as I said above, my average time was 8:00/mile, finishing in 48:0-something total.  

It's these spring days where the sun is nice and bright, but the temps are low that kill me.  I need the heat.
