good Bringing Out the Arm Sleeves 8 mi 01:00 07:30 pace

With overnight lows in the low 40's, it was time to get the arm sleeves out - took a while to find them last night (for some reason, they had gotten separated), but glad I did as it was a perfect morning for them today. Just a comfortable watch-on-time-of-day run targeting an hour, with 6 x 20"/20" strides right at the finish, kept it flat.

    "For some reason, they had gotten separated"? I don't know how it happens, but no matter how carefully I put away my winter stuff, by the time I need it again it's never all in one place. Nice hour run!

    Nice 8 Greg. You are the 3rd person in my feed to mention pulling out the arm warmers. I may need to get myself some of those.

    I saw the temps driving to work this morning and thought that this would be perfect for running. Your arm warmer was hanging around the sock that always shows up missing.

    Hmm. These arm sleeves you speak of are something I do not have. Will need to acquire some for the upcoming timeframe where it is in-between cool and frigid.

    I'm with you on the cold weather attire, today was the first day I've worn a long sleeve shirt, hat, and gloves in a LONG time! I probably could have done w/o the hat, but my hands always seem to get cold for some reason. Solid 8 miler this morning, Greg!

    Right there with you. What a great morning for a run--albeit a chilly one. I see the arm sleeves didn't impede your solid pace. Nice 8.

    Nice hour and strides, Greg. Heading out for my run in a bit and thinking arm sleeves are a good choice here too. Mine got separated from each other over the summer too but have united again :)

    Thanks all - @Daisy, couldn't move today's run later, but definitely felt the benefit of doing so yesterday (plus, didn't have to get up ridiculously early to fit this one in).

    Good work Greg. Loving the relaxed 8 in an hour...I'd so like to get back near that point. I too have arm sleeve issues. Two pairs, each missing a mate, so I have one yellow and one red. Could be a good look.

    Great "little" run, Greg. I guess it's that time of year. We're having a freak hot spell here in W. Washington (hot for us, anyway), so I'm enjoying that while it lasts. Keep up the great tapering!
