Pair of Fives

St Croix Valley Runners 5 mi in exactly 50:00,10 min/mi. Slogging through an inch of pebbly snow, 26 degrees with 20 mph winds and a little sleet in the face whenever we headed east. Actually a surprisingly energizing run. A great morning to be alive. The pace sounds slow but the snow was like sand, making the run effectively longer than it actually was. With Roy and Dave.

NSP Community Center indoor track 5 mi in 43:22, pace 8:40. I seldom do two runs in a day, but tomorrow looks like it might be a REALLY good day to stay in, with as much as a foot of additional snow in the forecast. Maybe a fire in the fireplace and a cup of hot cocoa instead? So today I ran, ate breakfast, and then ran again. No problems. Splits: 9:01, 8:51, 8:52, 8:50, 7:48. Felt strong during that last mile. Excellent day.
