Trail Running 1:43:00  13.0 km (7:55 / km)
What an incredible run! Even thought the pace throughout the course was slightly slower than any of my previous runs in this forest, I felt great afterwards and could have probably pushed out another few kilometers if the trail was longer. The improvement I believe mostly lies with the additional cardio I have been religious about at the gym. Engaging in cardio has always been a part of routine but with the intense LR&S race on my agenda I have stepped up the intensity, duration, and frequency of it.
With that said, it was an amazing sight to have seen so many mushrooms in the forest. If I had to hazarded a guess, all the rain and cooler temperatures has aided in their growth. Plus, it was an incredible site to have seen blue and red mushrooms on two occasions during the run. And there was a giant bulb mushroom, as in the size of two basketballs, on the side of one of the bends!
