Back in the Springs

I'm back in beautiful Colorado.  The first thing on my agenda was an early morning tempo with the All Army Ten Miler Team.  We did a 6 mile tempo this morning (2 mile warm-up and down).  I thought I might be tired from the race on Monday, but I felt great and ran just under 35:00 (5:33, 5:43, 5:53, 5:51, 5:52, 5:48).  It was great to be back here training with the team, even if there is less oxygen.


Saucony Elite Arm Warmers

It was a brisk 39 degrees on my car thermometer when I stepped out for a warm up, and, I'll admit it, I am a cold WIMP.  Rather than donning a long-sleeved shirt, I opted to try out my new saucony performance arm warmers.  They were perfect, not too hot or cold, and I wore them for the warm-up and the 6 mile tempo.  I went with an XS and they weren't too tight, but were snug enough to stay put the whole time.  I have them in the bright orange, vizi-pro color so I can be seen from like 50 miles away!  They also carry them in black.  I highly recommend these for fast workouts or races in chilly weather.
