But for Cross, well, it seemed acceptable for the greater good. Gotta break some eggs, eh.

Instead of starting out easy for a few weeks on flat surface, I ran as hard as I could down and then back up the trail from the glider port to Blacks Beach twice, non stop so that I couldn’t even see straight. That was last Friday. By Saturday, I could barely touch my quads because they were so tender.

But I figured out a really good way to help them recover:

Well, that oughta take care of it…

The Nate Harrison Grade up Palomar mountain is about 11 miles with around 4700 feet of climbing up a dirt road to the lookout tower pretty much had me in the red for the entire time. It’s a great ride and I’m allready thinking about when I’ll do it again.

Yeah, I’m feel’n good now.
