I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Heading off to the GaliuroLiza
I leave Thursday to work a WMI/NOLS course in the Galiuro Wilderness. Thursday! I will be happy to send you a copy of my yard-long “To Do Before Thursday” list if want to feel better about how on top of things you are. I’ve never been to the Galiuros, which are about 45 miles northeast of Tucson, but I hear the mountain lion population is healthy. So it looks like I will be forcing some lucky student to run with me early in the morning. Did you read Joe Grant’s account of being stalked by a mountain lion on a run recently? Read it. Yes, some lucky large student… (Of course, that would be after we’d accomplished the course’s goals and only if the student really wanted to act as mountain lion bait.) (Would make for a nice final medical scenario though…)
Running: 20 minute warm-up and cool down and 8 X 1 minutes hill repeats in the middle
