After yesterday's little frozen hands debacle, I stopped by one of my local running stores and picked up a pair of these Nike gloves:
They're more like liners than gloves, but they let enough air through to keep my hands from getting sweaty. Just what the doctor ordered! They have a cool key pocket on the palm of each hand. Unfortunately my key is too big to use the pocket though. Too bad the pocket's not big enough for a cup of coffee. Oh well. The best part is they were the least expensive gloves in the store at $17.95.
And with those, day two of morning running is in the books. I got out around 7AM today. While the thermometer showed the same temperature as yesterday, the addition of the gloves and the bright sun made it seem infintely warmer. I ended up putting in 5 miles at an average pace of 9:10 with an average heart rate at 80% of max. Right dead on in the aerobic zone.
On the plan tomorrow - 3 easy miles. I'm heading out earlier and not forgetting the camera.
