Our cross country team is down to 2 members now that we are into the week of sectionals. I got to spend more of the practice with Mr. B since we didn’t have so many students demanding our time. It was a nice change of pace. He has been such a great friend for me over the past year. I am going to try to enjoy our last few weeks working together as much as possible. We ran about 2.5 miles at a fairly quick pace for me on a recovery day but the air temperature was cool enough that my heart rate didn’t get above 145. The leaves were beautiful and the air was crisp. It was lovely. Tomorrow should be downright cold. I’m not quite ready for that yet but I don’t think Mother Nature is asking for my input. I do find that the more time I spend running in the elements as the seasons change, the more adapted I am when the extreme weather hits. I’ll consider tomorrow preparation for winter running.
