It was cloudy and cooler this morning, perfect for a "mountain" run.
So I ventured to Pawtuckaway boat launch, from where I ran up Shaws to the Boulder field, over N mountain, then back the shortcut to dirt road towards S mountain, but then down towards round pond and back via Shaws.
I only had 20 oz of water/juice mix, nothing else like electrolytes or food. I did not expect this to take me so long, also it got warmer and the sun came out during the last hour. That wore me down a bit. But thanks to Chi running, my legs were not overused, so no muscle cramps. It really works! I was able to run all but the very steepest climbs. Having just returned from the high CO altitudes also helped not getting overly exhausted.
An ankle twister at mile 2, and bit of groin issues on the steep downs. Otherwise a pleasant run. Quite a few hikers out, some with dog(s); also rock climbers - Kevin G. from UNH was hanging in the lower part of the "wall" but did not mind being distracted by a quick "hello".
