Training Hike Notes

Eric B Fuller Hiking With Umbrella PCT 2013Today I worked all day… on my chair… sitting.. blogging news…

Yesterday I walked from Lomas Santa Fe to La Costa Ave and back in just over 4 hours.  No running this time.. I was stuffed with4 or 5 slabs of Pizza and 3 beers when the walk began.. I almost drank all 2.87 liters of water in one swig when I realized I was super thirsty!  Ate 2 banana’s.  I was weak at first, probably from the pizza and beer and felt more energetic during the way back home.. No Candy nor Energy bars..  The Sunset over Swami’s was beautiful!!

After discussing training with Vittles, I’m due for some serious long distance runs..  Not walks, Runs!  Long Runs!!  Like Marathon distance Runs!  I have only run one marathon and my time was 4 hours 44 or so minutes.. I walked/ran 31 miles recently in 8 hours 44 minutes.. Most of my runs are around 10 – 15 miles though..I might have a chance to hike with Vittles to train up and I’m both excited and scared of the thought..  The man is a machine!

Training Hike 11/06/2013

Eric B Fuller Hiking With Umbrella PCT 2013

Today I was only able to get out for an hour and fifteen minutes so I hiked from the Soccer field in Rancho Santa Fe south along the horse trail which heads east and leads back toward the village and ends up at the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Course and then along the golf course back to the soccer field.  My pace was brisk, legs felt great, ate an apple, banana and a couple handfuls of dried cranberries.  Drank most of my liter of water.  Only took a sweater and beanie.. Didn’t touch my corn candy..  I figure my pace was around 4 miles per hour, I ran down a couple hills..
