1st 10 miles up to Silver Lake (2500 ft climbing) and back to the parking lot + 3 x 2 miles with .5 recoveries down AF canyon (some flat, a few small ups, mostly downhill): 5:54, 6:00; 5:43, 5:31; 5:17, 5:32. <– I wanted to quit so so bad during that last mile.
This was absolutely one of the hardest workouts I have ever done.
Switched our shoes/socks, took gels and water in and got to work on the roads.
The rain started once we hit the roads which added a fun element and now my shoes are mostly brown.
Andrew drove everyone up to the trailhead and did a 13-mile ride while we ran which was fun and found us during the speed miles.
Graham crackers before a run is truly magic.
