7:10 am) 60's Sunny!
Goal today was to push it as I'm going to be tapering in about
a week. I will do one more long run next week then that's it.
Today I did something different I actually had a goal time.
I went to Matt Carpenter's website and wrote down the splits
for a 2:50 ascent up to Bottomless Pit Sign.
The splits were:
3:44 to Ruxton actual 3:28
10:43 Hydro Street actual 10:20
Didn't get the Top of the W's split. Still not sure exactly
where it is.
1:07:29 to 7.8 sign actual 1:05:15
1:26:22 to Barr Camp actual 1:24:13
1:38:56 to Bottomless Pit Sign 1:36:38
If I were to have kept going I think I would have started to
lose time to the calculator. I'm thinking on race day maybe
not push it quite this hard and have something for above A-frame.
The down today was okay not great by any means. Not sure if it
was fatigue or not enough calories. I also had a fall on the way
down and scraped up both knees. Nothing serious but it stung
a little bit.
