Is anyone besides me wondering where November went? Could not believe how fast it went by.
I really didn't want to get out the door this morning in the cold and drizzling rain. Thought about putting the run off till the afternoon as the weather was forecasted for clear skies. But then I also wanted to have a free afternoon. I guess we can't always have it our way. I stopped being a whimp, put on my favorite Brooks jacket and was out the door for a 14-miler. After all, the conditions weren't all that bad. The drizzling rain stopped about 10 minutes into the run. I ran the first 5 miles at a steady pace, then alternated 1/4 miles at 5:45 pace and 7:00 pace for 4 miles, and then finished off the last 5 miles at steady pace. It was nice to mix things up rather than the normal Sunday long run.
