good Trail - MMSF Solo 20.08 mi 03:16 09:46 pace

Junken and I had discussed going to MMSF and just laying it all out on the trail to see what we could do. Last weekend he got his chance and put down a 3:12 for the 20 miles. Today was my turn. After the first loop (three lakes) which is arguably harder, I was at 1:36 and only 9.7 miles. I needed to gain back about 3 minutes and run the next loop at a faster pace. I was close but he still bested me by 4 minutes. I will try again in a few months after some more training. That workout absolutely crushed me. I almost cramped in the car...

I thought I had negative split the loops on cumulative pace, but it was pretty close. I think I was at 9:55 at the car, and then I finished at 9:53 (per my watch). However, looking at my 5 mile splits, I climbed a little bit from the front loop to the back. I'm still not mad about it.
