My legs were feeling pretty good today, especially knowing that I have just put a 30-miler on them and that capped a 102-mile week. So I opened up a bit during the inner loop and they did, indeed, get a bit sluggish again. I must be moving slower than I feel as the Turkey Vultures along the river were circling and slowly moved upriver with me!
I experimented a bit with a waist pack for an extra water bottle. I didn't like the feel so stashed the holder for the rest of the run and just held the bottle. In South Dakota, if I see the need for more than one hand-held, I'll carry a second rather than use the fanny-pack holder.
15 miles in the AM. 3 mile recovery hike planned for PM.
