8 miles on the trails with Blake this morning. It was coudy, breezy and only 84 degrees this morning.  That was a treat! I wish it had rained but we weren't that fortunate.

I slept in a bit then did some core work then a warm up run followed by a few all out 50 meter sprints then a cool down. All totaling 2 miles. It wasn't a lot but I feel reenergized having done some fast running.

13 miles on the trails with Blake. At mile 7 we stopped and swam in the lake for about 5 minutes.  It was refreshing and cooled us down just enough so we could finish the last 6 miles. When I got home I jumped in my pool as well. It was definitely hot to be out there that long and on the trails.

I was at Scout camp all week near Flagstaff around 7000 feet elevation. I found time to get some trail running in each day but Saturday. It was great. I wish I could train up in the mountains more.

I received my new Altr Lone Peak 3.0 trail shoes in the mail last night so I took them out for a spin this morning. I mostly liked them but found them to be a bit sloppy on the technical parts of the trails. Once when the trail was really sloped off to my right the shoe went one way and my foot the other causing me to go down. Hopefully I will be able to find a better way to lace them and make them hug my foot better.  I do love the large tow box and the amount of cushioning us perfect. 

I ended up running 14 miles. It was 106 outside before I finished.  I took 100 oz of water with me and drank every drop.  After finishing I jumped in my pool drank another 40 oz of fluid then had breakfast. Even with all that fluid and breakfast I still lost 5 lbs from my pre run weight.  That's a lot of sweating!

13 miles on the trails with Blake this morning. We had a little cloud cover during the first half of the run. We still jumped in the lake at the turn around and cooled down a bit before heading back. Good thing since we had the full wrath of the sun on the way back.

Blake and I decided to climb Crossman Peak this morning. We drove up as high as we could then power hiked 1500 ft up (from 3200 to 4700 ft) in just under 2 miles (Crazy steep?). Then we did a very controlled run down for a total just under 4 miles.
