AM - 5. I felt good so I just opened up my stride and went a bit quicker for the first 4 miles, if I had the mile mark right it was 5:42 pace(I only used a timer). I stopped after 4 to pet a horse that came up to me, then ran the last mile back to the car a bit easier. There are so many gnats on that trail in the PM so I'll measure it precisely tomorrow morning, but I honestly think it might have been more than 4 miles fast. Either way a good effort, nothing too hard. I'll make sure to take these next couple runs at an easy effort.
PM - 3. I got out but turned around and it started hailing and raining something terrible. All headwind. Luckily I was wearing an athletic shirt so I was able to cover my face completely with it and see through. Glad because my chest and legs felt like they were being torn to shreds. It was brutal.
