Another 20 on the Trails
Temps were cold this morning but SS and I bundled up and hit the trails first thing this morning. How can you build all year long, lower your miles following an event, and ramp back up only to feel like you are starting all the way over building again? For the most part the run was uneventful but we worked hard at the miles and hills to earn this 20 miles. My legs were totally fatigued and I was thrilled to complete the hours of running today. Still, the morning sun and signs of frozen spots in the creak was just beautiful and I feel blessed to be able to live this part of my life doing what I enjoy....doing what is healthy.... and laughing along the way at all of the ups and downs.This week is considered a taper week. Six weeks until our first Trail Ultra of the year. SO many miles to go.
On a non-running note... new haircut and glasses... so cool. I can see again!!!
Can't leave my little Layla out... What a great dog!!
