Tuesday Bright Cold Night Run

Today's plan calls for an Easy Run.
Surface Streets: 1/2 Marathon Training, Easy Run. Dist: (2.24)mi. Pace-avg: (13:36). Speed-avg: (4.4)mph. Speed-max: (5.6)mph. Burned: (272) Calories. Headlight. 

Plan: Run (3.0)mi. @ a (17:41) pace for a total time of (53:03)min.
Actual: Run/walk (2.24)mi. @ an avg. (13:36) pace for a total time of (30:25.23)min.
Fuel: Pre-run: Dinner: noodles and veggie meatballs, coffee; Mid-run: (nada); Post-run: glass of Gatorage.

I dilly-dallied today, but I got my run in all the same. It was cold and clear out tonight, with a mild breeze, and a bright moon in the sky. I ran on the neighborhood streets for a change, and without my iPod. My only music for this evening's run was my breathing, the swish of my running jacket, and the sound of my shoes on the road (and the occasional car driving past on the street).

Splits: Mile (1): (12:30); Mile (2): (13:57); Mile (0.24): (16:47).

Other News: I received my 2XU compression shirt today, and immediately unpacked it and put it on; it felt good. Like the tights, the fabric makes ones skin feel cool, especially when walking around through the house with the air moving over it. The compression seemed to help ease some of the ache in my arms, shoulders and upper back, and when I get some more resistance training in tomorrow, I expect it will help much more during my post-workout relaxation. I look forward to getting the correct size tights, hopefully tomorrow. *fingers-crossed*
