Wednesday, 08/18/10 Green Mountain

I wanted to keep my run shorter today to conform with my very loose and unscientific taper plan.  I debated between Sanitas and my old taper standby, Flagstaff.  Sanitas is too hot and a bit steeper than I prefer for tapering and Flagstaff is not my favorite, as it crosses the road many times and is not particularly exciting and lacks a distinct summit.

It took me years to figure this out, but I came up with the last minute idea to drive up Flag to the turnoff and run Green from the halfway point to keep things mellow.

I ran down to the Ranger Cabin, then took Greenman all the way to the summit.  It was relatively cool and my legs, mind and body were feeling top notch.  Though I was raring to go, I went SUPER easy, just lightly jogging the gentle grade to the summit and took it really easy on the down.
