Trails? OK I Guess...
I didn't plan on doing all my mileage on the trails but once I got going in Hartley I decided to stick to it and finish out the hour. I managed to run a short road section in Hartley Estates but the rest of my time consisted of single track trails that were in fair condition. I didn't mind the pokiness of the run today as I wanted to keep the pace slow and really start working on time and build up those mitochondria. I recently re-read my HADD article and it reminded me of how easy I should be taking some of these runs in the early base phase. My legs are really coming around, something I think I mentioned a time or two in earlier posts this week and it sure feels good. It's crazy but I am already looking forward to all those long runs, pace runs and whatever else is on the 'plan'.
Tomorrow will be another easy long effort. Happy Running!
PS: Tomorrow is the start of the John Beargrease Sled-dog race and we will be there taking pictures. Maybe I will post some later Sunday night.
