Today was all about adding volume and continuing the upward progression in distance. Thank goodness I went for a moderate road ride yesterday and Bill Huggins went for a really hard MTB ride yesterday because we were almost exactly the same speed.
We ran, chatted, ate and drank. I had to walk for short stretches about three times but ran in the last three miles uninterrupted feeling okay. It was great to have company and great to go this far with no ankle discomfort. I gotta say, the Hoka Stinson Evos do help.
I was able to run all the way up Wilderness Cliffs and everything else except for De Leo's Wall which was one of the times I walked.
The weather was gorgeous, shirts off from the start!
