Gravel/hill trail run at Highbanks – 4 miles in 27:14 – which is 6:48/mile pace. This is a picture of an actual part of the trail that the Warrior Dash is going to be on:
My running partner got lost on the trails, so I had to loop back 2.5 miles to find her. I didn’t time myself, but my pace wasn’t fast at all.
I think I did a decent job for my first outdoor run on hills, especially considering how sore I was. I felt like a tank the entire run though, and felt like I couldn’t get a decent stride in at most times. Plain and simple; my endurance is crap.
It’s time to start planning some two-a-days for the coming weeks to fix this problem.
I was avoiding carbs as much as possible but my body seemed to be craving it…so I caved and ate some homemade Lasagna last night. Being accustomed to eating huge meals, cutting carbs makes me feel like I’m never full. I think I need to find some good foods to replace that urge. Any suggestions?
I’ve got “Justin” planned, which is basically just lifting so I can rest my muscles. I’ll probably throw in a mile jog in my Vibram’s just to get the blood flowing though.
