More Trail Ramblings

and pics!

Yes, another Buff. This one makes me laugh. Cuz it's called Trout.

This was...Friday's trail run. YES I have been finally rewarded for my good training behaviour, with three glorious days of training and trail running.

So on this day, I ran the white bridle trail backwards.  I found this really cool wall.

I was anticipating a cool foundation, some daffodils.

But sometimes a fence is just a fence.

Pretty blue flowers.

 The Saturday schedule called for 16 miles.  And although I do love my Salt Fork Trails, I was just sick of them!!! Sick! I didn't see how I could cobble together another 16 miles on the trails (that could actually be runnable.)

So I went to Mohican.  I thought about putting a shout out on FB, and seeing who would want to run with me..but I didn't.  I just wanted to get my miles in, get up when I wanted, get there, start running.

I did get up at 430 am and got to Mohican about 7 am.  I had already changed where I was going to run. I had told the husband I was going to run the old Mohican Red and Green Trails,but these were mostly bridle trails, and I knew they were pretty muddy from last week's race.   Since the mountain bike parking lot was deserted, I decided to run the mountain bike trail,since I knew that would be dry and runnable.

It was a good run.  Energy was good-this was another dress rehearsal for MMT; I wore the clothes and gear that I will wear for MMT.  I even drank maltodextrin and an EFS shot that I will use.  It wasn't the hyper joy run that I was expecting; but for my last "long run" of 16 miles, before MMT, it went well.

  1. Love all the photos!!

    You are going to kill MMT this year. Hopefully I'll see you at the start and then cheering for me much much later when I finally finish.
