2005-08-15 Trail Run

Sycamore loop @ Umstead, like last week, but did the loop section in the opposite direction. Also, I didn't do my run/walk splits on perfect time intervals. I walked the steeper uphills, ran the flats and downs. Didn't see as much wildlife as last time... only one black snake and a few butterflies. The heat index was something absurd like 108, and I was feeling every degree of it. I felt very slugish.

Here's the best part: I started my stopwatch, but never looked at it again until I stopped. Final time... 70:38, exactly ONE SECOND faster than last time. ONE SECOND! How's that for consistent pacing?

Weight 161 after, but there is quite a bit of water weight loss in that number.
