Sub-three-hour marathon (...or trying to get on the Grinder Board). Day 7.


Hilly beach run v.2. St. Lucia.

Another midday run today that started at about 10:15. I took an alternate route to the beach (sort of), and ended up in the same place. The route was the same as before - up and over two rather large hills, one being macadam, the other rocky and barren, just the type of rugged trail that I like to run on best. The terrain requires constant concentration, each step has to be fully thought through. It feels like you're going faster and it's much easier mentally to run further distances. I passed a group of people on horseback, twice.

Stats: 4.03 miles / 37:45 / 9:21 m.p.mile / 2:29 off pace
