AM: Wow, alot happened in this run. Parked at BSFC side of the Deer Fence. Beautiful, warm morning, even with then shade of the mountains. There was a sign that said the trail was closed from December to the second Saturday of April, but I pretty much ignored it, I know, dumb (it is located in a wildlife management area). So I was running for maybe 3 minutes, and going up a hill staring at the trail in front of me and then I came this injured but alive deer laying in the middle of the trail, and it flinched and stared at me. I just kept going. Saw multiple dead deer on the trail. 3 miles in I heard a loud howling that sounding like a thousand demons emerging from hell, so scary. Apparantly there's a coyote farm below the fence, but I didn't know that. Then I got to the highlight of the run. I had been planning to go for the CR on Millville hill (a nasty .8 mile climb), I went for and I got it, crushed the the person haha (I once held it but got moved down to fourth, but justice has been served) Crossed Prov canyon and then I was actually in a nonrestricted trail. Just took it easy going out there. Saw Dillon Maggard and some other Aggies so that was cool. Hit Dry 7.5 miles out and found the water bottle I stashed yesterday, glad I did that. Headed back and tried to keep a decent pace. Started to get a nasty blister on the right pinky toe after I crossed Prov, it only got worse and worse especially running back down that climb. Hit Millville canyon and the DNR was waiting for me (basically law enforcement) so they talked to me a bit, and would have let me off with a warning, but they were nice enough to give me a ride back to my car, and THEN he asked for my ID and gave me a citation, so that blows. My bad though for ignoring the sign. (saw a few other people on that trail though too). Jogged one more mile for 13. We'll see if I'll have to return those shoes or not, I liked them other than the blister problem. 7:37 ap, so not bad especially for having less downhill then uphill.
PM: Well, after my longest work day ever (9.5 hours) I hit the road for 2 or 3 miles, maybe four if I was feeling good, to make up for the shortened run this morning.This was just before midnight. Ran out towards the river trail then back through Willow Park. Felt pretty relaxed!Ended up going 4.5 then I did some strides which added to 5, so and 18 mile day and 64 mile week. Pretty happy with myself, just hope my body can recover for another good week of training next week.
