Saturday

I met up with JV and Anton this morning to run up Green. I felt horrible from the start and my legs loaded immediately on the steep ascent with a full 2 liters of water in my Camelback. I should have warmed up before the run maybe. I dropped my pack in some bushes and immediately felt better but after half way the trail turned to ice and I completely pussed out and bagged the run and turned around leaving Anton and JV to go on. I was slipping every step and hating it and could feel a few tendons tweak every time. My legs are somewhat beat up from the two long runs and this was not feeling good at all. I definitely need to get on the trails more and maybe harden up a lot more. Today shows how much road runner I still have in me.
 Sitting here now my legs feel achy. I'm definitely not recovered from the long runs.

Damn you. I was sitting on top waiting to meet your ass.

I can imagine. I had hopes of getting out the next day after my long run Wed, but had some pains and took the day off. I don't think I'll ever be a back to back long runs type runner. Rest up today.

Ya, sorry Brandon. I'm still a trail rookie.

Tim- I actually woke up thinking I felt good, but once I started up Gregory with my Camelbak I knew it wasn't happening today. Then the ice was the icing on the shitcake.

No worries but heading out with JV and AK isn't usually good rookie company. Come back and run it with me in a week or so (after Boston).

Brandon- It was simply the ice on tired legs. Get me on a dry trail (even on tired legs) and I'll hang with most.

Sometimes the smartest runs are the ones you never do. After nearly 60 miles in two days I can imagine what a good slip might pull or tear on you...seems to me your fatigue would make you more vulnerable to a fall but also more vulnerable to an injury during a slip or a fall too...

Brett- I made such a comment before I descended with my tail between my legs. Something to the effect of 'staying healthy'. I needed an easy day and I got one.
