Hurting a bit in the legsm but aerobically, I found myself rarely feeling taxed. A couple headwinds felt tough, but that was about it.
Changed my mind about the series 5k this morning, realizing I really needed a long run workout. The local running club is free, has water stops, and there were plenty of people out running with them this morning - enough for me. They are really a great group of people and have some generous dedicated folks making sure everybody is taken care of out there.
Wonderful weather this morning - I was actually cold in long sleeve shirt! Very nice. The times and MP effort was where it should have been for most of this run. Big confidence builder - really what I needed more than anything, after a bunch of MP workouts in the humidity not turning out so well.
It actually took me a couple miles to get warmed up, but then the cooling breeze and fall like temp really helped.
