LONG Trail run

Exercise: Ran for 1:51:35 on Monte Sano on some new trails I've never been on before including the Powerline trail, the Red Lizard trail, and the Warpath Ridge trail. Very muddy in some areas as all of the traffic from yesterday's Mt. Mist 50K run left the trail fairly torn up. Estimated distance 10.5 miles, putting me at 37.5 for the week.

Friday Hard, Saturday Easy

Exercise: Friday - ran 5.08 mile temp loop with Carl S. Wind chill in the 20s, but after about 10 minutes we couldn't tell. Total time - 35:19 - 6:58 per mile pace.

Friday night, I helped out at the pre-registration for the Mountain Mist 50K held here in Huntsville. Called the toughest 50K in the country. I'm thinking seriously about doing this race next year. It's all on the trails of Monte Sano Mountain with extreme elevation changes, creek crossings, rock climbing, etc.

Saturday : ran 41 minutes on the treadmill, 512 calories, 4.04 miles.

Total mileage (Monday-Saturday) -27 miles. Long run coming up on Sunday should push me close to 35 for the week for my highest mileage week in about a year.

Friday - tough tempo day

Exercise: Met Carl S. at UAH Fitness center. We had planned on doing about 4.75 miles at a slow pace with a hill or two. At about mile two I noticed he started speeding up (which he is prone to do).

Tough day to start the new year

Exercise: Went to Lockheed field. Had planned on doing 5-6 easy miles. Got almost 4 in when I spotted Carl S. (my usual speedwork partner) - I hadn't planned on hooking up with him today, but decided to go ahead since he was already there. Did 3 x 800 at 6:10-6:20 pace plus a few more cooldown minutes for a total of 5.75 miles. 5 straight days of running now had put me at 24 miles in the last 5 days.
