Yesterday's Workout: w/u + speedy work 9X300 + c/d = 6.1 miles
Today's Workout: SLOOOW and easy Recovery Run = 4.5 miles
The roads on my run today were pretty icy and I slipped a few times. The weather is supposed to stay pretty chilly in this area for the next week (30s) but it doesn't sound like we will get any snow. :(
That's ok though - because I can share with you a crazy snowy trip that Austin Mike and I took over winter break!
After Austin decided to join the gym her also figured that he would head out on a trail run with Mike and I. Since Austin wanted to come and we all had the day off we figured that we could drive somewhere to a new trail instead of just heading out to Wildwood like normal. We picked out the Falls Creek Falls trail from our 60 Hikes within 60 Miles of Portland book. (This trail was like 90 miles from Portland)
We drove all the way out in our gear with a few snacks and some water for the drive home. But when we got there we found this....
trail shoes - which somehow had to be helping me manage better than the guys.
When we were back at the car we were all starving and freezing. We changed into our warm clothes and hit up a tiny Mexican restaurant in the small town just down the road a few miles. We ended up with 5-6 miles overall and 3 of them running - and never even made it to the trail head from the Forest Service road. What a wonderful adventure we had! Definitely one to remember - I really hope that Austin will want to try trail running again - because we have to go back and actually make it to the falls!
Have you ever ended up on a trail that you couldn't run on?
Where is your favorite trail?
