VftR: 1/6/12 Painted Horse Run

Writen by: Hank Wethington

Posted on 06 January 2013

Decided to hit the road for 9 miles today. As I passed along a large open field, two horses came up wanting to be pet… or something. I certainly didn’t have food for them. This one stayed long enough for me to get a nice picture of him/her (I didn’t check). Almost 1000ft of elevation gain over the 9 miles, so my pace wasn’t what I wanted, or expected, but I’m not complaining either, but my heart rate was in the correct zones, mostly. It is my longest run in well over a year, and I felt good. There was some trepidation about my left calf, which was still sore from cramping during my swim on Friday. I did bring watered down Gatorade with extra potassium in it, along with a Gu. I felt great and like I could have easily run longer. Isn’t that the goal?
