This Saturday was our last long run (24 miles), and it was HARD. Sunday I hiked 8 1/2 miles at Stevens Trail in Colfax. This trail is so beautiful, tons of waterfalls and a pretty good climb coming out of the canyon. At one point we hit a crossing that was pretty impassible but we took our chances and got across.
After this weekend, I felt the need to take 2 rest days. One of those days I had a much needed massage...aaaahh. I really need to do that more often :) I had 4 miles of hill repeats scheduled for Wednesday and since it was STILL RAINING, I had to run on the dreadmill. I got going, and surprisingly had a fantastic run...on the dreadmill of all things! I listened to Cardiocoach version 7. These audio workouts are the best. Did 4 3-minute hill repeats, then 10 1-minute hill repeats with 10 1-minute sprints in between the 10 repeats. Kicked my butt! Followed up with alot of core and hip work and stretching. Tomorrow I am off and will run 10 miles with Shannon to celebrate her birthday!!
