Running long (Trails) 1:03:26 [4] 7.8 mi (8:08 / mi)
rhr:55 slept:8.0 shoes: Merril Trail Shoes

Hit the mountain range between Mountain's Edge and Southern Highlands. Followed a trail service road alongside the train tracks. Climbed the first mountain. Uphill was easier than I thought it would be, but I still had to walk parts of it. The downhill was insanely fast. Then I went to the next mountain and climbed that. It was less steep (incline-wise) but was longer. There was a fair amount of walking on this one. Took the saddle to the third peak. By the time I turned around, the sun was just out of view (sunset). I imediately went down to the wash and followed that back to the service road. No issues until the last half mile. My knee had a sharp pain that reduced me to walking. I think this might be an issue of lack of range of motion for several miles. Maybe an IT band issue? Gotta figure out what that means. Just a guess at this point. I now feel confident running at night. Lots of self-doubt, but I just pushed through that. It still sucks to run at night by myself. My temperature regulation was spot on. Glad I thought about bringing the windbreaker for when it got dark. Nutrition was good as well. Used Powerbar gummies every mile and a Hammer gel halfway through.

Running 1:08:35 [3] 6.18 mi (11:06 / mi)

Easy 10k run with Eric. Pretty cold out at 50 degrees. This was a good exercise in learning to layer properly and control my core temperature. I over-estimated the cold and dressed too heavily. I also experimented with a new hydration system. This was a hand-held bottle carrier made by Nathan. During the second half of the run, I didn't even notice it and there was no arm fatigue. We were originally going to trail run, but decided last minute to do the walking trails in Summerlin near Palo Verde HS. This was a mistake as my knee started giving me problems about half way and felt like it was going to give out on me several times. My lower back also has a dull ache on the right side. That showed up this morning when I went outside. Not sure if it was cold-induced or if I tweaked it.
