A Run and a Hike

Run broken up into two segments, as I ran to the cemetery with the XC team and then back. This was their warm-up and cool down for their hill repeats. Equated to two short runs about an hour or so apart at an easy pace for me.

Ran 2.1 miles @ 7:51/mile pace.
Ran 2.1 miles @ 8:14/mile pace.

Slightly hilly.

Ah, the real fun. After practice, we took the XC team up to Mt. Chocorua for a hike. Big fun. Their legs were tired from the hill repeats, and also sticking together meant a pretty slow pace going up and down. While not a very strenuous workout for me, it was blast doing the hike with the kids. We all had a lot of fun and it was a great team building activity.

Will still count the hiking mileage as running mileage, as I'm guessing heart rate wise it equated to a recovery run. Elevation gain was around 2200 feet over 3.8 miles.

Hiked 7.6 miles in 4:35:41 (includes all stops)
Mountain trails.
Insanely hilly.
Lower 70s at trailhead, lower 60s and windy at summit.
