This run is a bit of a blur right now. I was in a bit of a frenzy with packing to head out on the road with Cinder Conk, but still really wanting to get in a long run. It was great to connect with Scout for a slightly damp Thorncrag thing.
We did a bunch together, merrily chattering away the whole time as usual. I felt pretty not-fit but nothing beyond that. After Scout had to split, I headed back out for more. The hills were hills but I felt well.
Suddenly, the Achilles made a complaint. I walked until it was good again. Interesting. This was the longest I've run since the 12 mile Bruiser. Not very long.
When I got home in the evening, my new shoes arrived! Too bad I'll be trapped in a car he next few days.
Stay tuned for the Hoka Saga.
~5.3mile run at Thorncrag, most with Val. Rain, good. Stopped the second the Achilles felt the slightest bit off, and walked ~0.4mile, then ran ~0.25 downhill back to car.
