Decided to push back the track speed workout another day, not feeling recovered quite yet for taxing the legs. With enough time til Wednesday’s track mile, it was a good call, a sensible one, one not ruled by ego or fear.
Instead went for an enjoyable leisurely 9 miles in the park, truly enjoyable with the temps below 80 for the first time since the heat wave began last week. The lack of intense heat did wonders for the legs and the rest of the body. Not that I want the summer to be over, but I’m truly looking forward to fall running after today’s experience…I say this every summer.
