Training Log - Monday, November 29, 2010
It's been a while since we had more than just two members of our running group. Today, James, Rich and I went on our new favorite hill workout trail run, from Pratt Ave to Tollgate Trail up to the Monte Sano State Park Ranger Station and back. The temps were in the mid 40s with occasionally strong winds. At 5:30 AM headlamps were a necessity for the oubound leg of the trail run. During the entire run, the trail surface was pretty difficult to navigate. Fall foliage covered the rocky and technical sections of the trail. However, oce daylight broke, the fall foliage is also what made this trail run quite enjoyable, with leaves covering the entire state park in multiple colors. Overall, I was feeling pretty good with only my achilles tendons still being a little sore early during and after the run. I will have to start coming up with good stretches to try to address these achilles issues. These little twitches could become much more serious during a 100 miler if I don't address them now.
