Waldo Canyon

14 Miles 2:12:19 2 loops
Loop 1 1:04:39 9:14 average per mile
Loop 2 1:07:40 9:40 average per mile
11:30 am) 70's Sunny & Windy
I bit off more than I could chew today. I guess I'm not
ready for higher mileage yet unless I do it on a flat
bike path. The first loop went pretty good. I started
the second loop and my legs felt like they had nothing
left. I pushed as hard as I could but walked more on the
second loop. When I finished I was very thirsty even
though I carried my water bottle. I drank like 40 oz.
in a matter of minutes.
So what did I learn today. I'm not ready for higher
mileage on terrain that involves climbing. Build my
mileage on easier terrain and slowly build up on the
harder stuff.
