The weather is suddenly acting like summer up here, so I’m trying to adjust to the heat. (Heat = in the 70s. Acclimate = I should wake up earlier. It’s all relative.) Other than that, I had a mostly good running week.
1 neighborhood mile with Kara plus 2 by myself.
Two laps of the “M” trail = 3.75 miles and 1,595 feet elevation. This is basically hill repeats, except worse.
We had a mountain-obscuring amount of smoke (from fires in Canada). I postponed my run and did a strength workout at home.
10.15 miles, 2,225 feet elevation. I tried a new-to-me trail for this run. Parts of the trail were steeper and more exposed to the sun than I expected, so I cut back a bit from my planned 12.
Also, rocks don’t work for running on. Thankfully this was only for about 1/2 mile.
1.8 neighborhood miles with Kara, because we were both tired and hot.
Total: 18.7 miles, 3,900 feet elevation gain.
