I don't think I've ever felt so much pain during a run. Pain from the freezing cold that is, not from an injury. It was 8 degrees (F) with clear and sunny skies. I really thought it wouldn't be too bad because the sun was out. I was wrong! Only a mile into the run I began to feel the stinging and numbness in the toes. It only got worse. The toes were frozen for the duration of the run. It probably didn't help that I was wearing a shoe (Brooks Axiom) that is mostly made out of mesh. Despite being miserable from freezing, it was a good training run. I did 10 miles averaging 6:48 pace, best of all the pace felt very comfortable. Things are going well so far.
Today: 10M @ 6:48 pace
Yesterday: 10.1M @ 7:04 pace
