Training Log: 21.2

Saturday, 3/22: 9 miles in 1:10:02 or 7:47/mi (PMP -:18); Long/Tempo Run

After taking most of the week off to recover from my cold, I felt well enough today to get back on the road. We had 6 or 7 inches of snow yesterday and last night, despite the fact that we passed the vernal equinox. So it was cold but sunny, and the roads were mostly clear by this afternoon.

I was not quite 100%; I had just a bit of chest congestion and that ferro-alveolar (yes, I made that word up) taste that comes from exerting oneself to the point of mild exercise-induced asthma. Still, I was able to keep up a steady pace once I got going. I figured that doing 9 miles at a good tempo pace would be a good way to get back on track.
