National Trail, Trail Run
South Mountain Regional Park
I am one week out from the race and my legs feel good. I will do two lighter runs this week in the 5-8 mile range, and rest up on my "off" days. Good timing too, it's suppose to be 112 degrees here tomorrow! Thankfully the race is in Flagstaff, which is typically 20 degrees cooler than it is here...what a relief that will be. Today's run was good, despite all the obstacles or should I say mountain bikers on the trail. My average pace was exactly 8 minute miles with the first five miles gaining over 1000ft.
