I decided to go for a run last night on my hilly course. I wasn't sure how much of this trail I could cover. The trail has various hill about every half mile. The hills range from short and steep to loooong and gruelling. These trails parallel farm fields and residential homes. Its not uncommon to see cows and horses but I was surprised to see 4 adult deer all together. They were running just like me, but in the opposite direction. I could hear the coyotes howling in the background. For a minute I thought maybe I should be running the other way too=). Shortly after that I saw the biggest jack rabbit. It was a regular wildlife zoo out there last night!
I ended up doing 6 miles of hills! I am not timing myself right now just because I am working only on distance and hills until I build up my leg strength and base mileage again. After my run I inhaled the most delicious Texas grapefruit (thanks for the citrus idea Kim!) and looked for my mace to take with me next time.
I am looking forward to a FLAT long run Saturday. Hope you all have a great weekend of running!
