A while back I had a goal of working this into my weekly runs. And then my ankle got jacked up, and I haven't accomplished that goal.
But, this week, I actually did my Eagle Peak loop 3 times. It's right around 1100 ft, in 4 miles. Not a bad little loop.
The first time, I hiked it, intentionally. In fact, I used my governor.......wearing my hair down. Do you guys have a trick when you want to stick to a hike, or slower pace...something you do to make sure you don't run? Maybe a shirt that's too tight that'll role up over your belly if you run?? No?? Well, I do. I leave my hair down. Short story is I had a rough few days, and it was sunny and 70 out, and I just needed to get outside for as long as possible and soak up some sun and nature. I wasn't concerned about speed at all. In fact, I sat on a rock up there for around 30 minutes. It was just what I needed!!
