T-11/T-36 – Trip Like I Do
OK February knock it off – 29 feels like 17! Fortunately, the wind wasn’t as bad as advertised, a bit at beginning, a bit at end (with grit it face and mouth yum!) and some in the middle (mostly pushing me not against me – so cold, but helping me go faster).
We also went back to double digit runs – 10 miler. I stumbled early on and around 9.5/9.75 flat out fell over on some uneven sidewalk. One benefit to the cold – layers – hands are fine thanks to two pairs of gloves and I was lucky – managed to hit above the knee. Was back up and going inside a minute.
I am definitely slower this time around. This 10 miler was about 6 minutes slower than my last. Discount 1 of those from the fall. Most of the speed loss appears on the front half – I no longer zip along at 7 1/2 minute miles for the first mile or two. Flat 8 1/2 – 9 ers all the way (numbers below include warm-up/cool-downs and interim breaks for drinks/etc).
