The footing was getting a little treacherous down there, because there is still ice on the road, with a surface layer of melted snow/ice that is turning to slush, along with short stretches of mud. So it is slightly challenging and you have to pay attention to where you put your feet.
I just ran easily and still maintained a nice 9:00 min pace, that taken with the conditions I was very happy about. While on the tough part of the road, the pace was probably over 10:00, but better safe than sorry. According to iSmoothRun my cadence was 87, which is a little slower than my goal of 90, but I will take it. Below is a picture of what down-back now looks like.
The bad part of this run was that my Peregrines started to bother my heel and I definitely need to move my time-table up for replacing them a lot sooner than I had expected or wanted to. I need the new shoes by tomorrow.
Time of Run: 2:40 P.M.
Weather: Sunshine and winds out of the NW @15-20 mph
