Didn't have time to run in the morning so I went with the guys who were doubling. It was so freaking hot! We ran up the road and took a left onto a dirt trail. It was a solid climb on the way out.

Warm-up up the road. 3 mile tempo down, 90 sec rest, 1 mile tempo up. Coming down the range was 5:15-20 and we were inside on all of them. The mile back up went by surprisingly quick and it was hard but I think I could have gone harder while still not going anaerobic.

Last day of camp :( it goes by so fast! We drove about 15 minutes to a trail that we didn't do last year. I really enjoyed it. It sure did climb! But Coach P who hadn't run the trail in forever forgot to remind us to go a certain way and so we kept on climbing when it would have flattened out. Right before I flipped there started to be lots of trees and the trail widened and it reminded me of horseback riding nature. Fun run. Strides.

First time ever on the Jeremy Ranch Trail. After the run I can say that I really liked it and I can see why so many people run there. Hit 6:10's going out (downhills) and 6:40's (uphills) on the way back. Great Saturday long run.
