I chose to celebrate Bike to Work Day by going for a run this morning. My plan was to do the O50K climb up Mission Peak, but turn right at the top of the ridge and visit Mt. Allison before heading back over and down Mission Peak. 9.7 miles, 2750ft climb, 2h05m.
Since getting serious about running at the end of 2012 in preparation for the Ohlone Wilderness 50K, I've learned a few things about body maintenance, drinking, eating, and other things running-related.
It's two weeks until O50K, and my training plan calls for shorter runs to taper to the event. Today I chose to start from Ohlone and run up and over Mission Peak then over to the bench at Mt. Allison. It was a total of 9.1 miles with a 2520 foot climb. I saw two snakes and got my favorite view of my favorite peak.
