What was I thinking? With a little over 2 weeks of inactivity following the marathon, I decide to go for a very fast 3 miler. And I decide to do it in Susanville,at 4,500 feet and in the afternoon when the heat is up around 90. Ego, of course.
With Jill and her 3 marathon trainees, we started up the Bizz Johnson trail and I was determined to stay in front. And at the halfway point I had a solid 12 minute mile average. In the only wise move of the afternoon, I decided to slow down on the return trip.
OK, next week I have to get back into serious training and not this spur of the moment stuff, it can kill you!
