I ran with Ben Vanbeekum this morning in the North Ogden area. We didn't get into town until about 11pm this morning so I was a few minutes late to his house. I was really tired but knew it would be a good workout. We started at his house in Harrisville and then climbed up in to North Ogden and then went over towards Weber High along the mountain. It is not an easy first 10 miles climbing for most of it. I wanted to hit at least 4 decent quicker miles on the way back but with how windy it was I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out.
We started picking it up at mile 13 and I hit 5:29, 5:21, 5:25, and 5:44 (wind was right in my face and ready to blow me over) for the 4 quicker miles. It was a flat section of our route and very windy so I was glad to get some okay miles in at the end. We just cooled down for the rest of the run. The cool thing was we saw 2 huge bucks along the mountain. Sweet!
Happy to get in a good 20 miler while I was up for my cousin's wedding. Mileage was a little lower than I wanted but my legs feel more fresh and I am feeling strong for St. George. We will see what happens.
Thanks again Ben!
