Very excited it's cross country season. First practice was yesterday and we have a talented and fun group this year. Took yesterday off from running, but got out today after morning practice.
Legs felt very heavy. I think it was a combo of the heat and perhaps the end of last week catching up to me a bit. It got a little easier as the run went on but kept it nice and slow. Glad to get in the run instead of cutting it short. Upping the iron intake just in case.
Ran 6.5 miles @ 8:38/mile pace.
Lower 80s, sunny, humid.
Saucony Kinvara 3, shorts, short sleeved shirt, handheld bottle (diluted Gatorade).
