AM- Did the Ashley 50 Relay today as a four man team with Blake, Amanda, and Ty. I talked to Ty a little bit and told him that I would run leg 3 with him, and then go on with leg 4, which was orignally my leg to begin with. Lots of climbing during this run, but kept the pace pretty good. 7:20 average pace for these first two legs.
PM- Had about 3 hours before I would start my last leg of 5.5 miles. Wanted to go faster for this one, but not try to kill myself on it. Mostly downhill throughout this leg, made it somewhat nice to have a break from all the hills. 6:07 pace for this last leg. Overall it was a really fun relay. Our team took first overall, and completed the 50 miles in under 6 hours. It was nice to run on dirt roads for a change, and get up into the mountains for some good training. Hit a little bit more mileage this week than I would have liked to, but I never felt tired or worn down, so a good first week of fall training.
