I really, really, didn't want to go out to run today. But once the rain stopped, I figured out a route where the 33 km/h winds would be mostly at my back on the way home and headed out. Looking for 12 miles (19.2 km) at a 8:30/mile (5:20/km) pace. Here are my splits:
4:47 (pace for 220 m.)
Average pace was 5:05 per km. 1:37:45 for 19.2 km. The temperature was good -- 4 degrees-ish. I wore my orange 2007 Boston Marathon shell, which worked well for the run, but which I didn't really need once I was 6 miles into it.
Anyhow, with the muggy weather, it maybe still wasn't ideal for running. But the cool temperatures were definitely welcome. The long range forecast for Hamilton is a high of 8 degrees, 28% chance of precipitation, and a mixture of sun and cloud. Sounds pretty good -- so I may not have any excuses!
