Kansas. HOT and 20-30mph winds which is pretty standard and what I grew up with. I also ran on my high school track which is the best track in the world. Maybe even in the whole county.
The workout sucked. 3:18/ 3:17/ 3:17/ 3:16/ 3:17/ 3:17 all on 3:00 jogging. I haven't run on a track in forever and I haven't sustained sub 5:20 pace for any significant length of time (and definitely not on flat terrain) so this all felt foreign to me which is a familiar feeling since moving to the mountains. Legs were out of rhythm and a few muscles I rarely use are complaining now. This was fun nonetheless and something I need to get back to.
After biking so much this past 2 weeks I also feel the familiar cyclist quad sluggishness.
And James and Beth both rocked at Cali!
