My legs felt a bit tired after last nights tough and rungged six mile trail run, so I headed out for my long run cautiously this morning. I did the same 17 miles I did last week with the middle 10 miles on trails. I took the first 3+ miles to the trail easy, working out the kinks from last nights run, but as soon as I hit the trails my legs came to life and I got in a nice rhythm. I ran the trails much better than I did last week, only having to walk the one really steep long hill and I felt much better coming out of the trails and was able to push my pace on the last 3+ miles home.
AP 8:14...still not fast, but these trails on not ones many people could run fast. They sure are fun though.
