Stealth Mohican Run

I ran at Mohican this morning, early. I ran by myself, for two reasons. One, was to keep my friend Terri on her taper schedule. I knew if I posted I would be running at Mo, she'd change her taper schedule and throw another long run in. So, Terri, if you read this, it was for your own good! (Terri is running the Umstead 100 on April 2.)


The second reason was I wanted to assess my running based on myself. When I run with others, you slow down or speed up when running with a group. I wanted to run at a very familiar area, and see how my running is going.
I was very pleased. The big hills didn't seem so big. Yes, I was walking up the big hills, but I wasn't out of breath at the top. I ran up many smaller hills and inclines that I used to automatically turn over into a walk. Glancing at the Garmin, my average running pace has decreased.
18.6 miles in for the day. Very happy with my progression.
