Bonking at Pineland

Never had it from the get go today. I think a culmination of humidity, running somewhat hard on trails the past two days, and sleep deprivation from stress got the better of me.

Got to Pinelands about an hour before I was to meet up with Val and Mindy and got in about 3.5 miles on the Oak Hill side. Just never felt it. Went back to the parking lot and met up with them and we were off on the Yurt side.

On a selfish note, thankfully Val and Mindy weren't really feeling it either. So, together we slogged through the soupy air and all abandoned our plans for going longer. It was the right call.

Will rest up and do a short easy run tomorrow to help ensure the batteries get recharged.

Ran 11.5 miles @ 10:27/mile pace.
Very hilly.
Upper 70s, sunny, very humid.
Adidas Adizero XT, shorts, short sleeved shirt, handheld bottle (water).

I'm not the only one bonking lately, then.
