As I drove along the freeway I had three choices; two trail and one road, well beach path actually. They were a hilly loop around
Actually there were two options at Eagle Rock; the up and down or a longer loop, I choose the up and down as time was still pressing. I haven’t run here for nearly a year and I had memories of having to break into a walk on the final stretch which is pretty steep. I set off at a slow and steady pace, with a few photo stops on the way and within 20 minutes or so I had made the top, just less than 2 miles and 1100’ gained. I was pleased that I managed to get up in one go as it was also pretty hot; 85f according to my car. Another photo op (see above) took up a few more minutes and I was heading back down, pushing it a bit along the steepest section and giving my quads a good work out, you can check that out here.
Seventeen minutes later I was back at the car and it was all done. A nice run on the back end of the day using what felt like stolen time.
As always here is the Forerunner data and the photos.
