Training Log - Monday, August 15, 2011

This morning felt like the first day of fall with temperatures in the low 60s, it was awesome. We finally had more than just two runners out for a run as well. James, Jay, Rich and I met up at their office at 5:30AM for a 10 miler to Rainbow Mountain and back.

We hadn't done this run in a long time. It includes an 8 mile out & back from Research Park and a 1.5 mile loop up and down Rainbow Mountain on a nice technical trail. It seemed that the recent rainfall and storms had washed out some of these trails, because they seemed much more technical (more exposed roots) than previously. While I didn't run it as fast as I had expected, it ended up being a great run.

The schedule had called for a steady 12 mile run. Since we had a nice and steep trail section included in our 10 miler, I figured this would be sufficient, even if it was 2 miles short. Tomorrow calls for a "slow" 7 miler at 8:10-8:30 pace.
