I don't want to write too many work related blog posts here without some running content, so I'd like to add that tomorrow I plan an upside-down pyramid workout at Maxwell Natural Area and will attempt to run Strava's pole-to-road segment, 0.9 miles and 353 feet of climbing, in less than 10 minutes. Then I'm going to trot back down and head up in 8, 6, 4, 2, and 1 minute intervals. Faster as I work down the pyramid, if I can manage it.
Earlier today I went out at lunchtime and ran around Pineridge Natural Area's singletrack and service roads in personal record time without pushing very hard, so I'm feeling good about tomorrow's hill workout. I'd love to feel this rested and healthy on the morning of the Quad Rock race in May.
