Medium Long Run
We did a medium long run today as our last one before our attempt at the Sage Burner on Monday. I'm not too sure how smart it was, as most people tend to tapper a little bit more, but we wanted to get in one more semi-long day to see how we were feeling. We did a nice ~16.5 mile loop with a really good climb in it. Start at Northwest, then up the road, up Tippery, along Spruce, then up the old Deadhorse to the top. From here, down Deadhorse and then back along Creekside. High point is 10,453 feet at the top of Deadhorse, with a low point of 8,771 at Nothwest/Creekside, making it a loop with 3,364 feet of elevation. Felt pretty good on the climbs, and only a little tired on the final Deadhorse climb. It was on the run down that I got tired - could have used some energy drink or something at the bottom of Deadhorse for a little extra fuel. On this day it took me 3:02. Not good, but not bad I guess???
