Decided to take advantage of the relatively cooler weather and continue the high mileage week with a 12 miler around the park. Once I reached the park, it felt warmer, maybe coinciding with my feeling more tired today than during yesterday’s 14. Still today’s run was solid and didn’t take too much out of me.
I’ll be running this Saturday’s 5k, when it’ll be cooler but with rain – better than heat, but this has been a season of dicey race weather.
Will be using the race mainly as a tune up for next Sunday’s Half, but also to celebrate this nice local race as it ends after Saturday, after a nice long run of its own of 30 years. I get a feeling, even with rain, a lot of runners will come out.
