End of July Running + Sierra Pelona Hike

Not sure how this started happening, but this now makes for the second consecutive 2-week cycle where I do a lot during Week 1, then have an easier Week 2.

Week of July 22:
Monday: 6 miles, +391’/avg pace 9:02

Tuesday: Easy 7.26 mi bike ride/12.6 mph

Wednesday: AM: 5.46 mi, +213’/avg pace 9:16
Wednesday PM:  6.73 mi bike/12.5 mph. Tooling around on the new bike.

Thursday: XC Summer Series, Week 3.  3 miles in 24:30 (8:10 pace) + 2.1 mi cool down (10:33 pace)
*There were almost 800 runners this week! I it about :40 seconds faster than Week 1, yet moved back about 130 places.

Friday: 2 mi shakeout run/avg pace 8:27

Saturday: 8.63 mi run/avg pace 8:49

Sunday: 11.77 mi hike on the Pacific Crest Trail. I had previously run this section back in October but wanted to bring Dan back.

^Yep, we came up that ‘Z’ on the far mountain. And the trail you can see on the mountain behind that.

It was warm. Dan hoped we were closer to the top than we actually were.

^To the north. Crispy from May’s Powerhouse Fire

^Firebreak from a fire that happened here 6 years ago.
