At least it wasn't a mountain lion -- there's one that's been spotted up the canyon east of where I normally run....!
Easy seven miles today. I'm still battling sluggish legs and turnover. I'm not a fast runner by any means, and I know that, but for the past month I've been averaging around 9:30 when I don't push it, with times dipping into the lower 9s. Today it was a struggle to average around 10. I did add a hill at around five miles to push to a new route to complete seven miles, but I was working very hard.
I've been neglecting sleep a bit lately, so I suspect that's most of it. Nothing hurts, at least, besides my pride... being under 10 min/mile is important to me!
Muddy day, too:
