I was so excited getting my things together for my first trail run in some time and just as fast as I could wrap my work up I was off for a HOT long run. My trail shoes fit like a glove and as the dust of dried up dirt fell from my shoes it made me only think about how awesome these shoes are. They hold memories of every step I have taken when I am discovering myself on these trail runs.
I was solo on this run and kind of looked forward to testing out the legs and pushing it a bit. The heat was a killer but overall I was pushing it pretty good. Other than the horse flies it was mainly uneventful. I estimated 9 to 10 miles and was pleased as I walked back to the car. On my drive home I passed a bank clock that read 95 degrees. It made me wonder what the heat index would have been.
I slammed some major fluids when I arrived home and took a cool shower. What a great feeling to be back at it. No pain. Everything felt good.
After my 7am cycle ride on Sunday followed by a run and hopefully one more swim and I will officially be on vacation and off with the family for our trip to Sedona,AZ. I will completely plug into spending every minute with them. My son and I will run while we are out there but I will not let my training dictate our vacation plans at all. Scott and I will have the pleasure of meeting Phil and having diner with him while we are there. I am super excited about meeting him in person. He was one of the first blogs I ever read.
So this is it for me for the next week. When I return I will catch up with all you fitness crazies. Lots of pictures will follow of our trip.
