Training Log - Saturday, June 30, 2012

Ed and I were the only ones ready to get a run in this morning and we met up at the hiker's parking lot at Monte Sano State Park. We were going to get in about 13 miles, at least that was the plan. We headed out on our first loop and would you believe it, I got us lost...on the freaking South Loop. Well, kinda lost anyway. We ended up running the Boca Trail twice because we took a wrong turn. Oh well, by the time we got back to the parking lot after just 4 miles, I was done. I wasn't feeling it. It was hot and I was annoyed and Ed was ready to call it a day, too. But then we saw the TP2 and some other WRH folks just about ready to take off on their 7AM trail loop. Tim had already run 5 miles and I figured we might as well join these guys for another 6 or so miles. Wow, the pace they chose was definitely faster than I expected, but it was exactly the type of motivation I needed. At least we ended up logging 10 miles and that was better than nothing. We also got to run with a bunch of cool runners, which made for some interesting conversation during the run. Next weekend, I will have to raise my game and log at least 13-15 miles.
