5 mile tempo run today. 9:43 ave overall pace. Total time: 48:37. Clear, WINDY, sunny and cold today.

Wow, was it windy out there today – and beautiful! Ran into the wind for the first 2 1/2 miles, turned around and enjoyed the wind at my back on the way home.  Had to remove my gloves and running jacket for the trip back since the temperature was feeling kind of warm without the wind in my face. Happy with the times. Had to stop for traffic at stop signs three times and it took a minute to get the jacket and gloves off at the start of mile 3, so felt pretty happy with pace overall. My right knee was bothering me a bit. I felt frustrated that I’d done the 30 Day Shred for four days. Definitely going to shelf that one until my two big races are over. Gotta keep injury-free!
