Just 4 miles after getting home from camping. New shoes that I liked.

Lacamas trail this morning in a new pair of shoes. I didn't love them at first but after a while, they seemed ok. If it's flat or uphill they're great, but feel a bit sloppy on the downhill.

AM: 5.2 miles. Right knee a little bothersome from the new shoes yesterday (I think).

PM: 8 miles in Bend. Ran on the trails at Shevlin Park. I’m falling in love with trail running.

Medford. Ran North Phoenix Rd, my favorite route from when I lived here. Mile 9 and 10 were 5:44 and 5:30. Felt good.

To highway 14 then Prune Hill up/down into downtown Camas. Turned around and came back the same direction. Just under 2,000 ft elevation climb and drop.

AM: 7 miles in the rain. Nice to have a little moisture in the air after a long, hot summer. 

PM: 6 miles on Badger Mountain. My heart skipped a few bears when I saw and heard 4 (!) rattlesnakes. Had to jump over two of them. The trail was great but I’m not likely to return anytime soon.

AM: 7 miles along the river in Richland. Left shin hurt a bit. 

PM: 2.2 miles along the river again. Wanted to go more but my shin hurt again like it had earlier so I cut the run short to be safe. Maybe Altra’s just dint work for me.

First step I took on my run sent a sharp pain in my left shin again. I stopped and stretched my calf and started up again. From that point on, I felt fine. Strange. I need to do a better job stretching and I’ll continue to monitor if it’s an Altra issue or not.

I woke up at 4:50 (alarm was set for 5:30 so no biggie) and drove to Lacamas Trail. Only goal was to run for 3 hours and practice hydration and pound my legs. Managed 22.4 miles and felt really good through 21. Final 10 minutes I was ready to be done. Really enjoyed being outside and running this morning.

A little tired from Saturday still, plus a slight sickness made for a rough morning. Completely missed my alarm and only had time for 6 miles.

Boise. Ran from downtown to the trails north of the capital. Crossed paths with a coyote and my heart skipped a beat. Not fun. I brought my headlamp which was needed for the first 8 miles. The sun doesn’t rise until late here...

Lacamas trails for just over 3 hours (3:05:12). Felt good for the most past but the first 3-4 miles I was tired and not having a good time mentally. Thankfully that passed after a bit.
