It was another hot one today (~ 90 degrees) and there was practically no wind to help with the cooling. I didn't do the group run tonight (I had to stop off at the house and couldn't make it back out in time), but I got a run in anyway. Again, trying to take it easy - my legs had been sore all day (even more than yesterday). I don't know what it is lately, my body doesn't want to listen to me when I try to tell it to slow down. Or maybe it thinks/knows that I secretly don't want it to actually slow down.
At a couple of points today, I didn't think I was going to make it all the back to the house (running), but was able to carrot myself along and made it back piece-by-piece. I think it then took me a good 15 to 20 minutes to really cool down and start to get back to normal; more of a breeze during the run (and especially during my cool-down walk) would have been very welcome.
