13 myles - 1.47:56

Deer Creek - 7:00 A.M.
low 60s, dry to start - rain/hail to end
mind/body - strong
Easy effort

Prescribed workout: 45-60 minutes recovery with hills

Actual workout: 13 myles - 1.47:56 - avg. 8:18 ~3000 ft elevation gain

I felt so good I couldn't help myself but to go longer. I took yesterday off because I knew this week I have to get a ton of vertical - 25K is the goal. My fastest time on this course is 1.45:10 but I ran into the red to get that number, as opposed to today when I was nice and relaxed the entire run. Tomorrow I'll head over to Mt. Falcon nice and early for another 3500 ft elevation gain with a little bit quicker pace.

Little by little the plans are starting to come together for HR; I'll fly the family to Utah on Monday, June 29th at which time I'll make my way down to Silverton. While on my way down I'll hit several CT sections to preview my adventure that will start on September 2nd. I'll end up in Silverton on July 2nd or 3rd. The family will then come over on Tuesday, July 7th and set up camp at South Mineral campground.
