PM- Since I didn't get my planned 50 miles on Saturday, I figured I should do a long run today. I started at 2 pm and ran from my house to First Dam, then BST to Green Canyon. Then I ran 6 miles up GC, just over 1 mile past the upper parking lot. I started to hit big patches of snow just as I turned around. Lots of bikers in the canyon. Then I ran down GC and over to Paul's house via the canal. I realized around mile 12 that my legs were more fatigued than previously suspected from the race on Sat, plus I bonked around mile 17. But, I still averaged 7:10-7:30 for the last 6 miles despite feeling very tired. Finished at Paul's for a nice Memorial Day BBQ with the Peterson's and the Campbell's. I wore my new Nathan hydration pack today and it worked great. Good investment.
25 miles total, 3:19:55 (7:60 avg according to my Garmin Training Center, which I guess means 8:00 pace), with just over 3000 ft climbing and lots of trails. Not a bad day. I plan to really push the mileage the next few weeks, especially since I don't have to recover from my ultra last Sat.
