Cool Temperatures = Fast Running.

Yesterday my wife had an appointment in the city so I did my weight training in the afternoon and went on an 8K/5M run. It has been cool and rainy this week, so really nice to run.

This afternoon I went on a 16K/10M run, it was about 24C/74F, sunny and cool. I flew over my route finishing in 1:25:10, or a pace of 5:19/K (8:34/M). I feel all motivated for my 25K race on Saturday night.

I may do my weight training tomorrow and maybe a bike ride. I want to get as much rest as possible before the race. As I mentioned in a previous post I have to finish the first 12K in 1 hour 15 minutes and the race in 2 hours 30 minutes. This is about 6 minutes per kilometer. A quick pace for the distance.

The weather is supposed to remain cool through the weekend, maybe with some rain. Not bad for a race! I am looking forward to it!!
