Just got back from a week in the north of Chile.
3 days of running at 0 altitude at the beach (with one 15 mile run ft. 4 mile tempo between miles 8 and 12 (5:48 avg pace)
3 days at 8000 ft. running slow 10 miles every day. It was awesome to run through Incan ruins each day.
Training has been solid, but I have been damn busy and intend to post more consistently.
Will read over the past few pages now to see how everyone is.
A few images of running/vacation . . .
