HM training notes - Saturday 9-miler
Saturday, March 15, 2014
WOW!!! It was an absolutely beautiful morning for a long run! The only downside was, due to the time change, I couldn't get my run started as early as I wanted - had to wait for the sun to come up.
My long runs are taking me further and further into the hills and away from civilization. Which is wonderful, but I think in the future it will be wise of me to carry mace. The only sign of another human being that I saw this morning was someone 4-wheeling and the sounds of target shooting nearby. I'm looking forward to running even further over the next few weeks as a way to explore the next mountain range.
Here's a couple of pictures from my turn around spot. The first is looking to the south and the other is looking to the north.
Run stats for today: 9.2 miles in 1:38:33 with a 10:43 pace and a 980 ft climb.
Only 5 more weeks until my race!
