Six Days on the Road (Running), and I'm Gonna Get Home to Rest!

Highlights of the last six days of training runs ...

o Since I took the 'Spring Break' from running last week and into early this week, I needed to string several days together instead of doing my run/bike alternating routine. Today made six days straight to get back in sync with my training plan.

o A good run up Batavia to Sherman Road
o Nice images of the farm above Glazier's
o Overview images looking toward Blacktail Mountain (still some snow there)
o Horses grazing at the original Glazier Ranch

o Good run with no walking (much better than some of the runs this week)

-- Mileage log: 6.233 miles

o Managhan to trail
o Horse riders on trail (while I was on a walking break)
o Jog/Slog the rest of the way back to the ranch via Batavia ... slowly!

-- Mileage log 5.15
