Back at home and ran the small loop. No great effort and not that easy, just an average run. The weather was perfect at 47 degrees, 74% humidity, 39 dewpoint.

Today was a miserable day of running. 25 mph wind, 58 degrees, 49 humidity, 39 dewpoint. I Think running 25 of the past 30 days has finally caught up with me. I was tired, sore, cold and not motivated ... but I did get my 12 miles in!!! Trying to build milage to a point that I can finally do some target training...I'm running out of time. Miles the last few weeks: 22,32,36,39,43 and I'll have 47 this week. 3 weeks to racetime! hopefully 2 good weeks of training and 1 week recover, then 1:34 Half Marathon! :-)
