Two days in a row running on trails! I know!
Yesterday I ran most of the Bridle Trails Beer Ultra and today I got out with Daniel Paquette and Jon Robinson for some up/down/up/down on Squak Mountain. Squak is right across 900 from Cougar but the trails are different. There are fewer people over here and so less use, less maintenance and the surface is softer. I like it here.
On the first climb I was pretty winded to say the least but I got warmed up and/or the pace slowed down and by the end I was hinging with less effort.
This route was almost literally up, down, up and then down again. I'm guessing maybe one mile was flat.
It was a pretty uneventful and pleasant outing except for two things.
- Dan did his best imitation of a very dull axe.
- I fell down.
