Green via Super Flag

7 miles
2,700 vertical

After an all time abysmal day at work, I just had to get out. My legs are feeling a bit better from the race, but still not 100%. If I were feeling better physically, I would have poured out all my frustrations on the trail and probably set a crazy PR, but instead I went the opposite direction and just focused on keeping it moderate and steady. It did my head a world of good to just be out there on the trails by myself and completely absord such a nice day. Went up Gregory, made the ranger shack in 17, Super Flag in 36, summit of Green via W. ridge at 54, back down via NE ridge in 30. Slacked bad on the descent as it is my downhill muscles that are most sore. I also got pretty darn hungry, need to start carrying a gel.
