Feeling the training

     So today was one of those experiences we all have....the run was a bear! I went out at noon and didn't expect the elements to have any impact, we are actually having a cool spell, but I sure did feel the heat. I had to break down and walk intermittently in order to survive. Finally I broke through and was able to finish decently. 53:08 in time and this makes reaching Base Camp II easy! I will arrive this week (20 miles) and will do another 20 mile week before I begin the climb again,. Must go mow the yard! It's about an acre so it takes a while. Hope you all have a great weekend! Peace!

I can't imagine running at noon this time of year, even during a cold spell. Great job getting it done!

Way to push through!! It's soooo hot outside. I'm waiting until this evening to go but it's still in the 90s here right now! Good job to you :)

Any run is good training. You're doing great! Keep it up. Have a good weekend.

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
