Ran a vertical mile race yesterday with some friends. It was a 5 loop course. Ended up just shy of 6000 feet of gain. Couple of the hills were more than 25% grade. I hit the first 2 loops hard while the ground was frozen then it turned muddy and I slowed down the last loops so I didn’t pull anything. All about buckling down and keep moving forward. Lots of fun!
Huge shout-out to @littlerunnergurl for some unexpected Pringles & oatmeal cream pie at the aid station to help fuel the final lap.
Not too terribly sore today. Resting a day or two, but not too long… I have 3 weeks until a 50k in Cleveland.
