Sunday, 07/25/10 Green Mountain

Up Gregory/Ranger 37:55 (avg HR 169/180 max)
Down Greenman/Saddle/Amphi: 25

Started off easy at 4:09pm, with no intentions of pushing whatsoever, as it was very hot and I have been sluggish as of late.  To my great surprise though, even with the heat, my easy effort was producing decent splits.  I passed the cabin in 16:27 and upped the effort a bit, made the 4 way in low 34:1? and pushed a bit to the top (but faded and powerhiked most of the steep stuff).  HR was a little high for the finish time, but I was satisfied with my effort given the heat and relative lack of effort (at least in the early part).
