Silver Lake Half Marathon

To wrap up the week I was looking for 12 miles to put me at 65. It's a flat 12 to loop Silver Lake but it's a perfect 13.1 to add in the Jackman Ridge Trail. This new trail was cut this year and offers a nice 2'ish miles in the woods. It was surprisingly warm out by the time Hilary and I motivated to get out the door. I knew this was going to have a little bit of suffering just because my legs were beat up but that's part of getting better. It was a predictable run, 8:30 pace for a lot of it. There were seven other people out on the Jackman Ridge Trail which was great to see. By the time we got back on Rt 41 I was over it and wasn't even halfway. Hilary kept up for the most of the way but was having stomach issues. The last two miles I picked up the pace and was happy to get that one finished. 

My weekly goal was somewhere around 50 miles but with the Chocorua run/hike plus the race, I worked in a great mileage week. The body needs some recovery and I'll probably do a little more hiking biking but try to just focus on three quality runs this week.
