Daylight saving my sanity

0311daylight, originally uploaded by yumkerun.

This is a picture I snapped just after 7 p.m. yesterday. The brighter afternoons and evenings are very welcome since I have so many mid-week longish runs.

Scheduled for 12 miles today, so after getting home a little early, I set out. I was forced into the city since my trail routes are covered in snow. Which meant I spent a lot of time on roads trying to avoid crowded sidewalks.

As a result, the pace was quite fast throughout. I finished 12.72 miles (about 20K) in 1:40:19 with an average pace of 7:53 miles or 4:53 kilometres.

Needless to say the rest day helped. I'll do a nice 5 mile recovery run tomorrow morning.

Keep it up! And I hear you on the daylight savings. Now we just need some warmer weather and for some of this snow to melt off.
