First Run In Two Weeks

Yesterday was my first run in two weeks. Due to a trail race coming up, I hit the trails.

My pace was slower than I expected. It took me 3 times longer to run three miles on the trail than it did to run on asphalt. Pace is something I will work on after comfort.

My feet were a little more sensitive than two weeks ago, but I think they will be fine by the end of the week. I am going to try to run the trail as much as possible(probably for every run until the race). I really want to get comfortable on the large, loose gravel sections.

Lake Zwerner is proving to be troublesome. The sharp pointy rocks prutruding from the sharp downhills is causing problems. I have to almost walk down them. Of course, practice makes perfect, and in a month I should know the fastest route down them.

So why am I doing this? I love the feel of the ground. I won't lie, the wrong steps suck, but the right steps feel awesome. After I run and my feet are a little sore I feel like I accomplished something. Every time I run it I feel more comfortable.
