My original plan for today was a mountain run in the Catskills, but from what I gathered from the FB group it looked like there's still loads of ice above 800-900m. That's great for a winter expedition, but not a long run. I've done enough icy trail runs this winter, not interested in sliding around anymore for now at least.

So I decided to go to Mocanaqua to check out the loop trail and the cliffs over the Susquehanna. Really, really beautiful views that broke up the run nicely.

Found new parts of Mocanaqua that would be great for orienteering. Saw a turkey and another common species in rural PA: a herd of 15-20 illegal ATV riders/dirt bikers. The exhaust fumes really brought together the whole experience.

Legs were pretty beat up by the end. So massive loads of climb weren't needed to get the desired training load.

Took a short, easy day since my legs were feeling pretty shot towards the end of last night's run and I'm planning on a big weekend.

Trump is holding a town hall in downtown Scranton this evening. Geez. Apparently Northeast PA matters to him again.

An attempt at Niels's course on Aston Mountain. The terrain destroyed me again. Rocky ground, steep slopes, blueberry. Really tough going for a lot of it.

This is precisely why I use the word mountains to describe the Appalachians, although our western compatriots seem to disagree. They're not mountains because of their height. They're mountains because of how rugged they are.

I live in arguably one of the "flattest" parts of the Appalachians and I get physically wrecked almost every time I go out. And it's not like I'm some innocent dude who's never seen "real mountains." But it's absurd to think the only way to measure a mountain is by its height.

I'll write more on this in the future. It is just so clear every time I come back from training here. I get physically beaten down by the terrain.

This loop is so much faster without ice. Also spectacular views everywhere except along 81. The nice part there was to see that I was running faster than traffic though.

5x20/40 at the end.
