Tuesday, 11/25/08 Green Mountain

5 miles
2,400 vertical

Had a great run up Green today and was pleasantly surprised that I am completely recovered from Saturday's vertical fest. Went up the Saddle Rock Trail (instead of the usual Amphitheater start) which is a bit longer and adds an automatic ~2 minutes to the outing. I was feeling pretty good though and pushed at a high moderate pace, bordering on low end hard pace, just zoning out listening to my Competitors podcasts. Made the summit in 36:57 despite the longer route and was happy and surprised with that. I was quite overdressed, as I was cold all day, but 5 minutes into it, I was boiling yet did not shed anything and just got drenched.
