Day 1 - 3
So, 30 in 30 is in effect and it's going well.
45 minute steady run on pavement and trail. I ran to the trail, got there and that was it. No climbing, just shaking things out. Sunday was pretty steep, so this was a good deal.
40 minutes. Yum. This started out with a sore foot and a pretty sluggish aura. At the turn-around, I was loving the grass. The whole run was on grass. My pace, from what I can gather was nicely aerobic and pleasantly steady. It was just a good run.
I headed to Mission Trails and proceeded to run a sick loop that topped-out at N. Fortuna. This was tough. Back in the day with Garmin, I swear this was a 2000+ ft. vertical run. Not with Highgear. We're in the day of clean living and there's no fibbing on vertical anymore.
I ran 1:10 and climbed or descended the entire time. Mission Trails is pretty much a canyon. You enter, drop, climb, cool, descend, and then climb over-heated and bonking. That's what happened today. The Highgear read 1700ft. vertical. I was a little surprised, but expecting it. I hate to be a whistle-blower, but Garmin's vertical is bullshit.
I think I bonked. Because I was worked at the end. I would venture to guess it was about 6 miles, so 1700 in 6 miles isn't bad, but either way, I know the loop and propose some serious progression there. N. Fortuna. Boom!
