Week of 5/19- 5/25: 73mi + 23,500 ft.
I cut the week short to let my tired legs rest before running the Mt. Wilson Trail Race on Saturday. I came in 5th in 1:06:xx (not a bad effort for someone who has been training for longer races). After the first mile or so of the race, watching the fast guys pull away up the trail, I resolved to just have a good time out there, and so I settled into a good pace, greeting the volunteers and enjoying the beautiful day. After the turn around I picked up the pace and had fun on the downhill. The energy from all of the other racers I passed on the way down really made it a blast, and it was great to see Jess and my sister trudging up the trail. Overall, it was a really fun race.
5/26-5/31: 50mi +10,000 ft.
I scaled it way back this past week, and finished on Friday with a 20 mile loop around Mt. Waterman with Chris and Peter. On Saturday Jess and I headed back up to Horse Flats for a little bouldering, (definitely out of climbing shape).
