Anyway, one day after the race I feel pretty good and there are no real pains or aches. Same for the run as well.
Today's run was really, really slow. This is a very hilly area and I really wanted to find a trail to run on. I tried to divert off the road two or three times and find some small trails to run but they were just trails that led up to the back of houses and didn't last very long.
I also took some detours off main roads to find these trails and this added some time to the run in general. My actual plan was to try and do a basic out and back from where we are and get in the time. But when we drove in last night I figured that it was going to just be running, and probably some walking up and down these hills so I had to adjust and I guess I did.
I ended up running 12k with all the side trips. I had to walk 1/2 of three hills. It was a very slow run but I enjoyed it immensely. The scenery is really beautiful and you can see some real nice views from different parts of the run. Tomorrow I will take my camera when I run I think.
After the run I managed to map out a 12k run that is out and back and will have big hills but that is the way it is. I hope that by the end of the week I can maybe work up each hill. Not going to worry about time this week, just going to work hard on patience and taking what you get.
Being nobody, going nowhere.
