First 20 of the season

It was warmer than I gave it credit for:

I started off gently and tried to increase the pace. It was sort of humid at the start and then warmed up to 86 F, 49 percent humidity when I finished. Yeah, I’ve finished in worse.
This was really my 16 mile course with the extra out and back spur from the Tower to Sheridan/Northmore and back. I was 2:42 at 10.2, 3:12 just past mile 12 and 5:09 at “almost 20 (19.9) the final 5 was 1:14:20 and the final 4 in 59:25. Basically, this was like my 16.3 course with the 1:01 added on for the spur.

Pace: 15:38, or somewhat slower than some of my 20’s last year. BUT I am doing this with heavier legs (more mileage midweek) and my course is somewhat more challenging due to adding the Grandview hills.
But, in reality…this WAS more difficult than the 16 milers ..I felt the difference.
