15 miles with 2540 ft of climbing. I meandered around and down to Walker Ranch which I haven't run in forever, I was reminded today that it is a pretty sweet trail that I need to be on more often. I can be there in ~ 3 miles from my house and then access any or all of Boulder Mountain Park. I have a 27 mile run mapped that would take me from home to Green and back, something like 7000ft of climbing. One nice aspect of this run is that the 3 miles to Walker is all a somewhat severe downhill... meaning I get to finish with a nearly 3 mile ascent, the ideal way to finish a long run . There's that FKT hanging out there too. Easy jogging today as I have some hard intervals tomorrow. I want to build on to Sunday's 1/2 mile intervals and will either drive down to the flat to run or I will opt for a high altitude hill workout. Both completely different benefits but both still specific to my next 2 races. I'll leave that hang.
