My first faster run! And in the dirt too.

Yesterday felt so good and I wanted to sneak in another run of some kind before we had to pack our bags and head home and the wash behind Shelley's sister's house is the most interesting route I know so that's where I went.

I started off at a reasonable pace and probably sped up a bit during the first mile as it's mostly downhill. As soon as I could I got off the bike path and down into the wash and ran up one trail and back on another.
Boy, I was out of breath! Going faster is harder... duh. But it felt SO good. And even though I was on this lame little trail it reaffirmed for me that running in the dirt is about 100 times more fun than running on the road.

I will feel like I'm finally 'back' when I can keep up with Justin A and friends on one of his 'easy' Cougar Mt 10 milers. Not sure if I can get there this winter but I am still really pumped that I was able to do eight easy miles on pavement yesterday and then four faster miles today. Real (long/fast) runs will have to wait until the fall of 2011 when I ramp this sport back up again.
