|Rafe and myself, post-easy run.|
Big week. Work trip to Tampa, then a trip to Austin to race. The weather I ran in was all over the place - 12 degrees on Tues/Weds; 50s-60s on Thurs/Fri, and upper 30s on Sunday. It's fun to look at my paces for this week, and realize just how much weather affects pace.
The race went very well, though that's another blog post. The trip also gave me chances to catch up with my old club friends Rafe (in Tampa) and Sunil and Althea (in Austin).

This weekend also gave me a chance to play with the "ground contact time balance" on my Garmin some more. My half this weekend was the first race I've run since I got the GCT balance function, so I was curious to see the data.
And then compare that to Friday's easy run with a mile pick-up, and all its red. And even within Friday's run, you can clearly see the distinction between my slow running and the faster mile. Neat.

I'm still not sure what to do with this data, other than pat myself on the back for apparently being a better runner when I'm trying to run fast (which is preferable to the inverse). At least it gives me blog content.
This week is going to be dedicated to getting rid of my damn headcold (I relapsed some on Monday morning, post race. No surprise there). And shoveling a ton of snow. I suspect these two goals conflict.
