Manitou Springs - 6:30 AM
60s, clear, dry
mind/body - really not with it today
Gotta take the bad with the good... today was a bad one. Not all bad, just no get up and go. My actual route was Memorial Park-Williams-Waldo-Longs Ranch-Bob's-Barr-A frame-Barr-Memorial Park. I practiced hiking today above Barr Camp, something that I've gotten away from but something I'll become all too familiar with at HR. About 6500 ft of elevation gain with a 9.26 pace overall. My initial plan was to tack on the Incline (for more hiking) at the end but since I was struggling all day I just pretended it wasn't there. Normally the week after a race I usually get around 40 myles and call it a recovery week. This week I'm at 72 myles which let's me know my fitness is coming around.
HR update: I'm #1 on the wait list now.
Wonder what happened in the races today, anyone know? Golden Gate dirty thirty or Squaw Peak 50.
