Cougar 14 trail run

Nice. This is my first weekend of back-to-back runs. Up until now I Had to ride my bike on the other day in order not to stress my left ankle too much but I was able to tolerate this so say hello to yet another sign that my recovery is going well.

I got the invite from Todd Morse Tucker to join him on Cougar Mountain and I jumped at the opportunity.

I had to start S L O W but Todd was game for company so we jogged and chatted. I almost pulled the plug and only did the 10-mile loop but before I had the chance to think on it much my body had already turned left and headed down the hill.

I walked about half of Wilderness Cliffs and again half of De Leo's Wall but I was able to run it in and in the end I was glad I did the whole loop.

Today was just about adding more volume after yesterday and although I did get pretty sore after, some time with an ice pack calmed my ankle right down and it held up fine. The only limiter now seems to be fitness which is awesome.

I switched up my shoes and in spite of the fact that these are not super cushy they felt great today.

Note my max heart rate, that was all I could do!
