great Fartlekking Among the Trees 6.27 mi 00:56 08:52 pace

If a lone trail runner fartleks through the woods, do his quickened foot strikes make a sound? Felt good out there, wild and hungry. Alternated quarter mile pick-ups with quarter mile easy running breaks until 3 miles, then headed out onto the sandy road for an out and back, which itself featured a half mile ass buster. This run came immediately after thunderstorms passed through the area and soaked everything. The temp had dropped to the mid 60's, but the humidity was through the roof. Everything in the woods was soaked and tree branches hung low forcing me to duck lest I lose my face. Several sticks had fallen across the trail giving me obstacles to hurdle. A couple sections were completely waterlogged and I splashed through happily. There's not much better than tearing along on trails for several miles on a Wednesday afternoon while frothing at the mouth and getting muddy!
