Wind: 12 mph
It was cold and windy tonight but after the mile or half mile you don't notice. I just wore tights and a hooded sweatshirt and a windbreaker with stocking cap and gloves. When it gets colder I will wear two pairs of tights.
It was perfect It was not too hot or too cold. Nice 5 mile run.
Ran just 3 miles tonight. Legs felt very sluggish, I think these may be times when your muscles are in a rebuilt phase. The first part of which is to tear them down before rebuilding them stronger than they were. These are the times when a lot injuries can occur. You could train really hard, and cause a start of the teardown phase of the rebuilding process which makes you stronger. The first part of this phase is teardown and if your training continues at the same rate or increases, injuries can occur.
When I finish a race and someone asks "Was that a PR" I often joke that PR means possible recovery. PR which really stands for personal record is what makes running the most fun. I remember all my PRs well.
No matter how cold it is you always see someone without a shirt.
