New Thread !! ..

How the shoes holding up Loopy? Haven't run any trails, however have been keeping up with the miles and my program for the HWH. My plan is on Sunday's when I do my long run I will do them on the trails and get the technical in. Not sure how it will work doing hills and technical on long run days, but I'll adjust the schedule if it turns out to be too much.

I found some dirt bike trails in Green Lane Park that I think will work well.

My husband made plans to go to Atlantic City the weekend of 6/22. We are suppose to be back by Saturday night, so I can make the race, but I will have try not to party too much since the DT is that Sunday.

Apple thanks for starting a new thread -- things were getting confusing with the half-wit half thread morphing into a double trouble thread.

Here's the double trouble application for those looking for more info...

The trail shoes are great -- I have not run on the roads at all since I got them to avoid the need for my road shoes. I have been doing the trails every weekday and grass cross country course on the weekends for my long runs. As long as you take it easy, I don't see any problem with combining your long runs with hills and trails.

Merigayle, I ran it last year and had no trouble with poison ivy. Actually, I don't know if you remember, but you helped me out in this regard by suggesting TECNU poison ivy block. Either it worked, or there was no poison ivy out there (don't remember seeing any, but I was a little distracted by the mud, rocks, etc). I am very allergic, so I should serve as a good canary in the coal mine

Thanks Loopy! I almost ran it last year, but after a call to the park, they were not helpful about the PI factor i decided against it. I *may* go. I have a trail race the next weekend, so depending on how i feel after this weekend's race (50 miler), i will decide. I would like to run all the races everywhere, but not really feesable!
Tencu, definitely!!!!

I use technu for yard work around the home, but didn't think about it for the race.... Good idea

I so want to do this....if all goes well next week, I will register before the deadline.

As for the running part, I feel physically ready almost, but I need a few more long runs soon to get in the right shape for 15 or 30k.

Did a trail run Sunday and felt good. Found a hilly trail with lots of debri... (Ron would even like it).

Did 5.15 m, but my time was slow because of course. 1:00:43.

Next Sunday I will try it again for longer distance.

Dorf and Merigayle, I hope you both can make it for the race.

Apple, I'm glad you found some good trails for your weekend run. Sounds like they should prepare you well for the DT!

I had a very nice, but very urban 20-mile long run on Saturday in Boston. I did get to run along the Charles for most of it though and there was a grass/dirt path paralleling much of the paved bike path.

Was an odd trip: Drove about 8 hours Friday to get to Boston and 6 hours on Saturday to get back! Did my run Saturday morning while my friend was at a conference, and then joined him and others from the conference for a business lunch. I had about 10 minutes between the run and lunch, so had a tough time keeping lunch down and not passing out while trying to appear professional (the heat during the run really did me in).

Hi all. I just wanted to cross reference another Double Trouble thread in the Ultra/Trail forum. Robhamm posted a great course map!
