Slow and steady ruck

I was somewhat hoping my legs and hips wouldn't be trashed today and I might get some fast laps in but that wasn't the case. All good stuff, but my glutes and upper legs and calves were tight right from the start and I knew there wasn't going to be any fast anything.
So I slowed the pace and just went for steady with more than few breaks to just stand there and let the legs lighten up. that actually helps quite a bit,kind of the same way a walking break loosened up the legs when I was doing long distance running.
Tight legs are slow and fast fatiguing legs.

But it was cool and overcast and beautiful out  and my mind was in the moment for a change and that was great.
