To the Orchard and Back

Ran with the XC team during their workout today. Route consisted of two miles of paved roads that climbs a really long, gnarly hill that leads to McDougal Orchards, where we have our home course. From there, we continued on to the course, and then headed back down.

Pace would normally indicate easy, but given the hills and trails, it was a pretty moderate effort. Good workout. Was feeling much more peppier than yesterday. Will likely just do really easy five milers tomorrow and Saturday to help ensure fresher legs for the Bradbury Bruiser 12-Mile race on Sunday.

Was happy to arrive home and see my new trail shoes arrived in the mail. I ordered a pair of Adidas Adizero XT's. Though I haven't run in them yet, they appear to fit just fine so looking forward to giving them a spin tomorrow!

Ran 7.1 miles @ 8:03/mile pace. 
Paved roads and trails. 
Extremely hilly. 
Lower 70s, partly cloudy. 
Brooks Cascadia 3, shorts, short sleeved shirt.
