Recovery Day

Legs felt pretty tired this morning, but it was more of the sore-from-being-worked variety as opposed to the heavy-as-lead variety which seems to stem more from overall fatigue. Would much rather have the former than the latter.

Really did two separate runs. The first was joining the cross country team for part of their warm-up. The second one was my own run after practice, a little over an hour later. Both intentionally very slow for recovery purposes. Hot and humid again, with the sun beating down but relief is finally on the way. Cooler, dryer air moving in for next week, which will be most welcome.

Ran 1.5 miles @ 9:08/mile pace.
Ran 5.1 miles @ 9:04/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Upper 60s to mid-70s, sunny, humid.
Brooks Mach 13, shorts, short sleeved shirt, cap, handheld bottle (diluted Gatorade).
