Enough of That

Today’s single digit run was a bear.  A real bear!  I began at the top of Mentally Sensitive (the closest steepest trail I know) and “ran” up and down it not three times, but FOUR times.  I had a miserable time of it on the uphills.  I practiced the fancy feet, quick technical running on the downhills. It took complete focus not to fall or trip.  The 4th trip up was brutal. Down right excruciating. 

I think that’s enough of that.  For today anyway. Smile

I cannot wait to lay my head down and sleep.

  2. Thanks to your hilly route, I had to head to the nearest "mountain" this morning and do my own version of this. I only made it up and down 3 times. But it's still better than going back to sleep like I did yesterday. Maybe.

    1. I hope you had fun. The thing about hill repeats (for me anyway) that aren't fun until they are finished!!!
