Doesn't Rattlesnake Lake look inviting? there is a heat advisory and it is expected to hit 90 degrees today. What was I doing? Running 17 miles and no, i did not get in the lake.
I figure it is good heat training for Ragnar which is next weekend. We started running early which helped and I did a lot of out and back sections on the Iron Horse Trail to get in the miles. It did get tough the last few miles but I worked on keeping running cadence up and acknowledging and accepting the challenge my legs were protesting about. I planned on a much slower pace overall as the gravel plus the grinding climb of Iron Horse trail really does get hard. Done!
