Thankfully, I found time for a much needed run through the wilderness trails at Oscar Scherer. Not knowing how my foot would hold up, I decided to test out the shortest trail, the Green Trail. This flatwood trail consisted mostly of sand and I found my pace was very slow as a result, but probably a good thing considering my foot. Many other campers also enjoyed this short trail for an early morning run. Unfortunately, a portion of the trail was closed for maintenance and so I had to get creative to reach 3 miles.
After finishing less than a mile on the Green Trail, I exited the campgrounds, crossed the bridge and ran along Lake Osprey to the Yellow Trail.
About 1 mile into the Yellow Trail, I noticed Bobcat tracks in the sand and became very nervous about running on a trail without my mace with no other runners in sight. With that I decided to stick to only 3 miles and head back to the campgrounds.
Total Time 33:31
Last Thursday was the last time I ran. I promise to get back into routine tomorrow! I need to redeem myself of such a horrible pace and time!
