Long run with a group of 7 (not sure why we did Sunday instead of Saturday). 40 to start and 50 to end, and the change in temps brought some fierce winds. But I dressed well.
Started off feeling good and happy and continued that for a while until I realized a while was only 3.5 miles in. Around halfway we hit the few spots where we were directly into the wind. That and tired legs made even the minor hills feel terrible.
The return trip was pretty rough, on the struggle-bus for sure. But managed to do better than hang on, even while we picked up the pace the last few miles. Everyone else added on (though I don't think I was the most tired, just the least in need to miles). I am happy to say the pace never felt fast, just heavy legs.
