Conditions: low 60s, clear except for a pollen haze
Warm-up: saying good morning as we get out of our cars
The Thang: a 1.5 mile warm up around the Alston loop to the bottom of Jingle’s Hill then 4 hill repeats up and down Jingle’s Hill to Gooses’s hill, then a slow run around the AO and back for 3 more hill repeats.
Moleskin: last night’s rain did a good job of washing all of the pollen away, but it was in full force during the run. As we turned on our headlamps you could see it floating in the air and just coating you. If I didn’t know it was pollen I would have thought I was misting or we were running in hyper drive. The layer of green on my shorts at the end proved it was just nature’s reproductive juice.
