Trail run at raccoon creek state park. Got up and out early to try to avoid the crowds. Over the first 21 miles we only saw three people on the trails. The last mile was along an easy nature trail so lots of families out.
Legs were heavy and tired, but looking at the climb maybe not a surprise. Also, mid 70s weather compared to the usually 40s probably didn’t help. I ran out of water with about 2 miles to go, but syd still had some spare. Probably need to plan a loop that goes back by the car for anything longer than this, especially if it’s this warm.
Struggled mentally on and off, I think a combination of the heat, and how insanely muddy/wet some of the trails were from yesterday’s storms. Very slow going when your foot sticks every step. Was able to perk up with help from syd, so overall a success.
