After yesterday afternoon’s 9-miler, this morning’s 40-minute run was just a nice-and-easy shakeout effort. Since it was only about 12-hours between runs my legs felt a little stiff at the start, but progressively got better throughout.
Just like yesterday I started out on the Hudson River Park Greenway, but this time I headed south toward Battery Park. Once I passed the Staten Island Ferry I kept going north along the East River, under the Brooklyn Bridge, and finally turned around once I reached the Manhattan Bridge.
One thing about this morning was that the conditions felt very similar to being back in Nashville. The temperature was 72º at 6:00am with 90% humidity and a dew point of 70º. This made for a rather sticky effort. In total I finished 4.25-miles with an average pace of 9:26 per mile.
