Just over a week to go before the Pinhoti 100. Richard and I met after work to do some trail running, getting in some hill work and night running at the same time. This was going to be our last effort training run before the big race, but we focussed on staying relaxed. The temps went down rather quickly as soon as the sun went down. We added a couple of new sections to our usual Ranger Station Out & Back adding sections of the Sinks Trail and Cold Springs Trail to our usual route. We ended up running a little over 10 miles in just over 2 hours. This run gave us another change to run very technical trails in complete darkness, just like we expect to encounter during the Pinhoti trail run. I ended up not taking a water bottle and I had no hydration or fatigue issues whatsoever during the run. However, my achilles tendons were pretty tender after the run, not sure where that came from. I have never had issues with that before. The only thing left before our big race is a little "tempo run" on Saturday morning, the Spooktacular 5K in downtown Huntsville. After that, we will only go for one more 6 miler Monday morning and a nice casual 5 mile jog/walk Wednesday morning to keep the legs loose. It's all about rest now.
