AM- My mom is in town, so we drove to Paris Mtn, where she took a hike and I took a nice run. I felt great, not surprising due to my super-easy recovery week. My normal PM run averages 9 min pace or so, but today I averaged 7:43 pace. We parked at the upper lot and I did some big loops around Kanuga/North Lake, etc. Went down to the lake twice. I went fairly easy the first 4.5 miles, then started pushing the pace more as I had runners to pass. I finally reached a junction with only 10 minutes till I was due to meet my mom, and decided to really fly by taking the long route. The next half mile over rolly, technical terrain was sub-6 pace, and the 1.5 miles back to the car were about 6:25 pace- definitely the fastest I have ever run on those trails. It was a blast dodging rocks and trees, going up and down the trail. Good run- 9.5 miles in 1:11, including 1200 ft climbing with equal descending. Now off to Asheville with the family. And back to the normal mileage next week- should be 80 miles or so.
