Early morning run at Pineland was met with quite a contrast weather-wise. Yesterday afternoon, it was in the lower 60s and sunny and I was sweating during the run. This morning, we ran in snow and sleet with overcast, dreary skies. Welcome to spring in Maine.
I had planned on around 12 miles today, but ended up doing a bit more. Legs felt a bit heavy and as a result, I was a bit slow, even with the trails being quite muddy (that definitely made things a bit slower). I think I'd benefit by taking the next two days off. Nothing unusual going on, just my body asking for a bit of a rest.
As always, great company today for the group run. Stephen and I got there before the others to get a head start on the day. Ran the first half with him, and the second half with Emma and Mindy.
Ran 16.2 miles @ 10:20/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 139/155
Lower to upper 30s, overcast with light snow and sleet.
