Ed Villalobos and I went to the track meet this time. I had somewhat lowered expectations after my training run on Saturday at Mt. Wilson.
I was out with Laura and Chuck, and Todd Fanady. We were doing the Mt. Josephine and Strawberry Saddle section. I got terribly overheated going up Mt. Josephine and drank ALL of my water to try and stay hydrated. When I got to the top, I was dizzy.
Chuck was up for doing some extra distance (because we were going so slow). He said that he would go back down to the bottom (about 2 miles), refill his Camelbak and then refill my water bottle. I would continue on the trail slowly until he got back.
It took him about 40 minutes to do the 4 miles roundtrip. In that time, I barely covered a mile. The 16 miles we “ran” took me nearly 6 hours. Probably means that I have to hydrate better BEFORE the run.
Ed did the 1500m race with me and finished in 8:18, while I did 6:16 (that’s 21 seconds slower than the time before). In the 3000, I did 12:21 (a little faster than before). Who knows what’s really going on with me?
