Secret Summer Rally training run number 2. The Jordan-specified workout today was three by six minute tempo intervals separated by two minute jogs. And that mapped well onto the Summer Rally course.
Got out the door just as the main thunderstorm of the day hit. In fact this was exactly one thunderstormth worth of a run because we finished just as Otter Dog and I got back to the Hottage.
I managed Going Postal and The Thumb just fine, quietly crediting my superior trail running skills to my satisfying lack of anything close to a fall. As I was settling into how great that was, I rounded the hard right down into—of course—Travesty, planted my right foot to pivot and…it just kept going. Took me about 10 meters to stop sliding down that stupid gully and scramble back to my feet.
The rest of the run went well. 22:50.
