Gonna call it this pace and feel fine doing so. Based on the other day, I think the times on these passes correspond to faster but I'm going to err on the conservative side. NEW PR for back-and-forth on the trail! SIX, count em, SIX out-and-backs... for those of you who struggle with maths, that covers the trail TWELVE times. OH ya, turning back into a running zombie.
Had to keep holding myself back because I wanted to get going more! But of course I'm going to feel good 40 min into a run. Let loose a bit with 20min to go, though towards the very end it was getting too dark to see well so that held me back a little, but no biggie... wasn't trying to kill it, just cruise a bit. Still no problem noticeably negative splitting. Was treated to a really nice sunset on my final pass of the trail. Around the 2nd I saw something scurry through one of the big puddles. Turns out it was the little crab with a HUGE claw (comparatively) that holds its claw above water as it runs along the bottom. WILD. There were others too!
Oh, and WHY did I run 12 times on the trail, you may ask? Because I get to Marrington and apparently it's fuggin HUNTING SEASON until January and the entire GD trail is closed from 5-dark on Mon-Wed-Fri, plus sunrise-9am on the weekends. FUG THESE GD REDNECKS.
OK diary that's all for today.
