AM Long run to Grandview, 1 loop on the trail, 1 Loop on the road, and back home.

Road and trail loops are drastically different.  Trail is 5.5 miles with a lot more gain and loss, road is 7.1 miles.

26 miles total - 4:14:37.  Pretty wrecked.

AM Series race across town.  Tour de Trails 8k - 30:00.  First time running this one, though its been on the series calendar every year.  Humid / rainy morning.  Tough to breath after about 3 miles and struggled running in to a decent headwind on this out anda back course.  Easy 2 mile WU and 8 miles easy pace in the grass afterward.  Left foot is still pretty tender.  Not quite in the plantar fascia-itis pain range, but, some pain.  Continuing with the rolling and massage stuff.
