Relaxed Morning Run

I headed out for a very slow easy recovery run in the woods behind the schools today. I had a long run Saturday and a good hill climb yesterday. I'll admit it, my legs are tired. I'm not sure why, but over the years these woods behind the schools have become my Sl-o-o-o-o-ow run trails. I find these trails beside the river very relaxing.

On today's run I tried to find all the caches that the JROTC had set up for some sort of military orienteering-like exercise. I did pretty well, considering I didn't have a compass. The clues were tacked to trees and were not too not hard to follow.

Running through the school's athletic fields on the way back, one of my road racing rivals from college right through the 90's was out instructing a P.E. class. I believe she is still running 18 or 19 minutes for a 5K, more power to her. I wonder what she thought of the 10 or 11 minute pace I was doing today. Funny, but I don't really care.
