14 myles - 1.58:01!

Mt. Falcon v. 1.0 - 7:00 A.M.
60s, dry trail, clear
mind/body - strong
Hard effort

Prescribed workout: 90 minutes with elevation, up tempo on the flat sections

Actual workout: 14 myles - 1.58:01! - avg. 8:25 ~4500 ft of elevation gain

Well, I didn't think it was possible but I eclipsed my previous record of 1.58:55 by almost a minute for Mt. Falcon v. 1.0! This tells me I am fit! Probably the best shape of my life. What makes me most happy about this time is that I gained most of my time on the downhills. I was only up 15 seconds by the time I had finished climbing. I'm starting to take more chances downhill with confidence. Here are my splits:
  • End Turkey Trot - 17:20
  • Shelter - 29:15
  • Start Parmalee - 50:11
  • End Parmalee - 1.08:32
  • End Ute (after tower and elbow) - 1.32:18
  • Start Turkey Trot - 1.45:28
  • End bench - 1.58:01
I know Travis Macy (through Dale Petersen) has a time under 2 hours for this course but are there any others?
