15.3 miles up the canyon. I had wanted today to be really chill after a tough week. It was going alright for the first half. To be fair, I had left some room in my mind to run faster if I felt good. I did the first half in 48 minutes (6:16 pace). I probably sped up a bit when I wanted to "check my pace" once I got in the canyon. Soon after I turned around, I saw in the distance some long boarders I had passed on the way up. Most times, I quickly pass other runners. Fast bikers will pass me. But these guys were going the perfect pace that I was barely inching up on them as I ran. So I pursued them, ratcheting up the pace as much as I felt comfortable. I was even running with them for a few minutes before they finally took a different route around Tucano's. At that point, I slowed a tad but it was too late to go back to easy running. I kept telling myself just not to go to the well. I did feel pretty crappy afterwards but it was more I think a) my breakfast wanting to come up and b) me not being used to 15 miles right now. That was 42 minutes on the way back, or 5:29 pace. 5:53 pace overall.
