Wednesday - 23k Run

Sometimes I work out and end up feeling like a million bucks - then there are days like today when I'm glad I did it, but, holy crap, I feel a bit like I've been hit by a truck!

Nadia met me at the club at 5:00. We were dressed in everything we own and on the road by 5:15, heading east on Van Dorf again. 3k of hills, followed by 2.5k of uphill slope. Luckily, delirium kicks in around the Woodbine (Slap-the-Sign turnaround) so the next 6k heading east doesn't hurt so much.

First light hit about 1/3 of the way back, but traffic picked up too. It was amazing that it was in fact about -25 degrees with the wind chill, but we were both boiling out there. It seemed odd that we had ice on our faces, eyelashes etc, but were so hot in all of our clothes. Michelle and Gavin bought me this great hoodie thing to wear. It's so warm, and the long arms with the wrap around your hands thing is great!

The tale of the tape read 23.06k, 2:37, 6.50 pace, 124 average heart rate. That looks like perfect zone 2 times for me. Around the Bay in 2:45 - 2:50, here I come!
