I was tired. I tossed and turned last night and woke up at 2 hungry. Then I could hear our new neighbors out on their patio talking, which I was curious to listen to them since we've yet to meet them
Our plan was to run 9 miles today. The trails we run on are only 3 miles long so 3 loops. The trail starts at the top of a hill and works its way down along a river/creekbed then climbs back up, no way to escape the hills. We set off at a pretty decent clip, but the humidity was horrible, especially amongst the trees. We decided to walk the hills today. Lap one done, lap 2 we decided to go the opposite direction. It totally seemed longer going the other way. Both of us managed to slip on rocks and tweak our ankles, each time requiring a bit of a walkout before returning to run. 3 lap I was
It's nice to do loops since we saw the same runners/walkers again and again. One guy, I'll call him Eric Northman (Any TrueBlood fans?), totally looked like him had passed us numerous times, and I heard him tell someone he'd done 20 miles. I can imagine doing 20 on those trails but it's beautiful.
My weekly milage: 30 First time ever I've run so much in a week! This coming week training will be harder to do, we have visitors for the week and soccer practices in the evening. I'm going to have to figure something out!
