I reluctantly took the past couple of days off due to a chest cold, obeying the adage that states it's more or less okay to run if cold symptoms are from the neck up, but don't run if it's in the lungs. Fortunately, it's pretty much gone and I was also otherwise feeling great, so I did a short 5K run at an easy pace to test things out before XC practice got under way. All systems go.
Ran 3.1 miles @ 8:01/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - N/A
Upper 40s, overcast.
New Balance (really old pair, forgot my real shoes), Shorts, short sleeved shirt, jacket (shed after a mile), cap.
