I did my first trail run of the year. It was muddy and cold but it felt awesome to be out there.
I had what I suppose was a type of Charlie horse in my right calf but it worked itself out during my slow down. A lot of spots called for careful footing so I had a chance for the kink to subside.
I finished strong and was proud of my time. 2.69 miles in 39min. Slow but good considering I haven’t run in a year. Plus the mud was a big factor in slowing things down.
My goal is 75 trail run miles. This is in addition to the 100 hiking miles I want to complete before the year is out. I think both are attainable.
I’m grateful to have such a great trail close to our house. Ft. Ben is a great place to run.
