The weather today is probably the nicest yet this season. Very light wind, sunshine, 55 degrees. And I'm not going to run...and I'm okay with that. 

The yard beckons.

14 miles / 1:53:36 / 8:06 avg. Commute run from work. Upper 30's temp, wind around 10 MPH from the W (mostly cross wind for me), mostly sunny.

1/2 marathon PR by about 2:40! 13.1 miles in 1:45:56 (8:05 avg.)

After the first 4 miles, I realized I was feeling pretty good and decided to do a 6 mile tempo at my goal half marathon pace. After mile ten, I had finished the tempo portion and let off the pace but realized I was in for a good HM PR on today's training run so I tried to keep pushing a bit.

The funny thing is I almost called off the run today because I woke up this morning feeling a little nauseous and my joints were sore. Also, I didn't start the run until 1:00 PM, and I spent most of the day whining and obsessing about the crappy weather. Fortunately I decided to go ahead and get a run in because it went really well!

Mile splits: 8:31, 8:17, 8:21, 8:29, {7:56, 7:46, 7:48, 7:56, 7:48, 7:45,} 8:13, 8:15, 8:00, 8:24.

Also the last 10 miles of this run constitute a PR of 1:19:58 for 10 miles. Just a hair under 8:00 avg. pace. Nice.
