Run (Hike/Run) 1:07:33 [3] 3.0 mi (22:31 / mi) +1089ft 16:45 / mi
ahr:147 max:173

Met up with Jeff to check out the Arroyo Verde trails. He was late so I did some exploring on foot. Lots of climbing here! Even walking, the calves were burning. Tried to run as much as possible, but on the route we did, it was just too steep in many places and tricky footing in others. Beautiful sunny day. Note to self: bring water next time... and food in case of adventuring.

Run 32:59 [3] 2.73 mi (12:05 / mi) +174ft 11:24 / mi
ahr:152 max:172

Quick run around town. Two more work days until Daylight Saving Time! Yay!! (I can't be the only one who counts down to this, right?) Was feeling good and not going to walk at all today, but had about 30 seconds to walk to get my digestive system to settle down. Then, all was good again. Woo! I have a 3-4 hour light AR coming up in 2 weeks with Katie, which should be fun. Then, April 20 is the corporate games 5K, so I need to start stepping it up. I think that since I can run continuously now, I should start adding in some speed workouts to teach my legs to turn over again. Maybe start with some 400s.

Went to the harbor to paddle today, but it was super windy! There was a high surf advisory, but I thought I could maybe paddle in the harbor, but it was too windy even for that!

Run (Run-walk) 1:46:20 [3] 6.6 mi (16:07 / mi) +1325ft 13:32 / mi
ahr:148 max:165

Ran much of the way, but walked up the steep hills. I did that loop that I'd identified last weekend as a potential nice 6 miler into the mountains. It was all going well until I hit the end of the fire road, where I encountered a fence. Yep, I was on private property. I was lucky that there was a lady coming up to the fence who was relatively understanding. She explained that fire roads are still often private property and that they have video surveillance and police surveillance on their property. I assured her that I was not going to do this route again and was on my way. (I was lucky she was there, or I would have had to go all the way back for an unplanned 9 miler.) I also encountered some random dogs running on the street and made something of an attempt to find their homes, but I wasn't willing to grab the collar to look at the tag because you don't know how a random dog will react to that.

I'm so bummed that it looks like many of the "good loops" are on private property. I hear that the famous "two trees" hike actually gets police patrols sometimes.

Also, botanical garden trail parking lot to the road was 9:02. A 7 second improvement.
