Monday: Patrician with Natalya. We saw the Schors along the way, which was kind of cool. Back along Holly so probably 10?
Tuesday: Huntington; legs felt like running was really weird. Hopefully I'll get back into it soon. Like in a week. In time for preseason. 5.5.
Wednesday: Madre, felt about the same as yesterday. Not that slow, just felt really awkward running. 5.5.
Friday: Huntington. 5.5. Nothing special.
Saturday: Today I was stupid. This is probably the worst "run" of the summer. Started Brown Mountain at about 11 AM, got about three fourths of the way up and then decided that I couldn't really make it... Like, I think I started this run mildly dehydrated. And today had a high of 39C (103F). Yeah, anyways, so it was really essentially a hike. I felt like such a pansy. I had to stop at every stream crossing to splash about a bit. I also spent quite a while optimizing some makeshift headwear. :/ Also apparently no one else was stupid enough to go up at noon, so it was kind of isolated. I saw two deer though. And a snake. And startled a bunch of birds. Anyways... uhhh I guess I'll call this a 8 mi hike. Stopped at Ralphs on the way back and consumed like 32 oz of Gatorade in about 2 minutes.
Sunday: Legs were feeling kind of exhausted, but I wanted to get in one last trail run, and I did tell the Schors I would run with them. Chantry, not too brisk. Pretty okay overall though. 5.
