Days left to a 5 day weekend (AND the SATC movie premiere!) 19
This was at 5:00am
12.5 miles total
4 before the 6am start (5:10am start)
7.5 which was today's route
1 mile around base
Average pace: 10:14
Todays route of 7.5 had a little bit of everything...pavement, bike path, big rocks, hills, 2 sets of stairs (1 up; 1 flight, 1 down; 3 flights), wood shavings, and bat shit :) That's cross country if I have to call it something :)
The big rocks section thankfully only accounted for maybe 1/2 mile and it did a number on my feet (plantar in left heel suffered the most)...
Overall I am happy with the result...thankfully we had full cloud coverage and a stiff wind to keep it relatively manageable. I went too fast on a couple of miles here and there, and that bit me in the booty there in the last mile of the route, but other than that, yeah...
