Hey, it was actually overcast today and that felt great. This probably would have been a great run if I didn't try to a short tempo, which was demoralizing.
I don't think I mentioned that my glutes were sore yesterday from the previous day(s) ascending, and a bit worse today. Still felt quite good on the gravel paths with no sun bearing down. Even ran on a few trails (horse trails likely). I figured a quick tempo would be fine, but there was wind on the return trip and 6min pace was an effort.
