I made a late decision this week to run the 5K Trail Run at one of the local YMCA's.
This morning was quite warm and humid, and I was sweating well before the race ever started. I decided to only put out an easier level of effort on this race and not push myself too hard. Even so I was still pressed to run a slower, but not too slow, pace today. I felt so worn down by the heat and humidity, I ran this 5K about 30 seconds slower than the 5K at the end of last week's triathlon.
I'll start looking forward to taking an easy pace on next week's Hog's Hunt 25K in Huntsville (TX).
