PR, bitch. OK, by only 3 seconds! But I didn’t have a pacer and I am in race recovery.
Couple more times and then JV comes back and paces me again, sub-20 will be had.
On the 1st time back down the hill, there was a runner that went down as I summitted giving me something to chase back down. I made the catch with about a 1/4 mile to the finish but I was hauling in the 5:40s. That felt pretty awesome.
BTW, I love this “hill”. Such a fun predictable workout. Cold out there today. Luckily, it wasn’t wet yet. There is talk of Green in the afternoon but I had to opt out in order to ensure my morning run. 4 weeks of training left. Can’t stray or take a chance of waiting and then it rains and then I have to figure out how to turn on the dreadmill.
I went 6.04 miles with an elevation gain of 2,542 feet in 01:26:11, which is an average pace of 14:15. View my GPS data.
