Felt pretty lousy after 5 miles. I forgot how cold/wet conditions tend to make my hamstring and calf muscles get super tight and crampy. Did a fair amount of walking the last 2 miles.

Did our final Payson Canyon run of the year. Always a little sad to finish up and know that summer is officially over. Got in some good MP miles with Dan.

Very very bad smoky air this morning. Smell like a bonfire, probably did more damage than good going out running.

Taper time so only 5 miles today. Battling a bit of sore throat the last couple days and felt pretty sluggish.
