They finally loosened up with a mile left to go until the turnaround. I did do more walking then what I would have preferred.

At the turnaround, it was a nice downhill. I wasn't gonna blast downhill but I stayed a pretty consistent pace almost the whole 3 miles. I did do 7 trail miles the day before so my quads were burning on this downhill. I didn't think it would bother me but I did have to stop and give them a little bre…
