I’ve never run the full version of “Hills to Heaven” before, coming off injury or starting on a different schedule from others. Jason, Mus and I ran 2 miles ahead of time and then joined the group for the fun on the hills. I ran the 20 mile version, here’s a link to the 18 mile version that includes the 2 mile adder from the Rogue maps page. Overall pace was a 7:52 min/mile pace with a very easy warm-up and once we got through the hills it was a consistent effort that put me right around a 7:30 min/mile range:
7:35 (Down Far West)
9:04 (Ladera Norte with 4 walk breaks 🙂
1:48 (quarter mile)
The other good things with the run was I didn’t feel any pain or soreness in either of my legs. Need to keep icing the legs and stretching the calfs and hope I can keep going without injury.
