Extreme run (for me)

  I decided to head for the forest today. This is a beautful area to run...along a creek with beautiful forested hills all around. The gravel road (trail) is rough and at some places smooth, steep, shaded, and very secluded!
  The degree of difficulty is raised because of the steepness of the hills and the rough trail...so 9 miles today! Very enjoyable. I got it in before the oppressive heat and only saw one car (on my road) and three people! I was very pleased with my overall pace and believe I'm on the right track with my training. Now we will see how the achilles will respond to this run. Peace!
