Tuesday, November 10 - Elk Meadow Run

Run: Elk Meadow - Bergen Park
Time: 1:03
Distance: 8.31 miles
Effort: Moderate
Body: Good
Weather: Cool and clear

Late afternoon run through Elk Meadow Open Space. Ran Painter's Pause Trail down to Troublesome Gulch, under the bridge, past the rec center and did a fast loop on the new paved trails in Bergen Park.

I returned to Elk Meadow the same way, but made my way home via the Meadow View Trail.

It was shirtsleeves only weather today. Twas a bit chilly in the woods, since the sun was already to the west of Bergen Peak.

Saw four runners and two bikers on the trails today, about twice as many as usual. The good weather is luring folks out, I reckon.

The plan today was to do a tempo(ish) run. This route is a bit hilly, so I was focused on a tempo effort, rather than a particular per mile pace. Still, managed a few sub-7 miles and several in the low 7s. A whopping 691 feet of elevation gain today.
