AM- Bonneville Shoreline Trail long run with Cody. We started at Dry Canyon and ran 7.5 miles to Blacksmith Fork Canyon. I had never run the last couple miles and really enjoyed them- probably my favorite part of the run. Nice singletrack through some trees, and even a dead moose right on the trail. Then we ran back to the car- 15.2 miles at this point in 2:19 (nice and easy 9:09 avg pace). We drove to First Dam and ran the second portion of BST all the way to Paul's house- 7.9 miles. We visited with the Petersen's for a minute, ate some of their grapes, and ran back to the car. 31.1 miles total, 4:41:10 (9:02 avg pace), with about 3700-4000 ft elevation gain and loss. Finished with a leg soak in the icy lake. Started to feel tired but still running well at the end, other than a bit of stomach issues which made me stop a few times more than I would have liked. Great weather for a long run, and I don't think Cody got too sick of me. No gear problems, blisters, etc- I think everything is dialed in for Poky 50. Now a rest week next week, 3 more weeks of training, then the race.
Cody- for the record, Paul's house is 50 ft above First Dam. And our extra mile is because our stop was at 15.2 miles, not 16.2.
