How about 3.7 miles, 12%grade, all uphill, in the woods?
I loved it
My legs and breathing took about 5 minutes to say, oh my gosh.... This is do hard... Then I figured out I had it and the rest was truly a challenge but wonderful !
Next weekend is Mt. Washington which will be double Mt. Ascutney , same grade, 7.8 miles. Whoooo!! Trail running is a blast. My legs seem to like it.
I ended up third in my age group .
Yesterday was a Team USATF-NE race, 5 miler in NH.
Not too ready yet. I dumped water over my head at mile3 and felt better then tucked my tank up. Pushed on.
The team open division , which I am in, was third!!! Too cool . I ended up to 15, new PR by 2 minutes. I am really a distance runner, so my short race times are not too fast at all.
My legs felt good and a n negative split the last 2 miles, just give me 20 more miles and I would of had a blast.
Thank you to my sponsors for the wonderful gear and products. I have much positive support.
Now on to the top of the Mountain Sat.
