5 Miles in the dark are worth the early morning wake up call

I laced up the shoes and hit the streets this morning at 5:15am. I wanted to finish by 6:00am so I figured a little over 5 miles would be easily packed into that time frame. The weather was warmer than Monday’s morning run because there was absolutely no wind.

The run took about 40 minutes with the pace hovering around 7:50 per mile. I was able to keep my HR AVG at 143 per minute which is the lowest it has been on this run. This was also the slowest I’ve ran this route by only about 20 seconds but it felt so easy I could have crushed my previous times by expending a little more effort!

I’m enjoying the early morning runs and I plan on getting another 6 miles in tomorrow morning as well!
