When I saw Deer Creek on my training plan for my Saturday long run, I was beyond excited. This trail is gorgeous, and with all the snow this winter, I knew the lake would be higher, the grass greener, and more wildflowers than ever.
I was also excited to have a run to help build up my trail legs for the summer. This one tests me the entire way, and I’m positive that you never once run on a flat section the whole way. My workout was to run easy the first half and then push hard on the uphills for the second half.
If your glutes aren’t firing, try my pt exercises. I am noticing the biggest difference on the uphills; I feel much stronger. Thanks to my glutes working, I even hit a new PR on the second half of the trail.
There isn’t any shade on this trail, so it got hot when the sun was fully out. I had a bottle I stuck in my shorts pocket to get water.
We all welcome the heat with open arms after our previous six months.
Andrew had a busy weekend with work, and the big kids were with their other parents, so it was just the three of us during the day.
These black bean and sweet potato burritos were amazing. MAKE THEM!
