I went to the gym and lifted for an hour working my upper body and core. I'll probably consume 5K cals today. I can't wait.

Last year I climbed 58 peaks, which is the most I have ever done in a year. I was really happy with that total, but this year I knew I could do more, so I set the mark at 65 and today I climbed my 33rd peak of the year, so I am half way to my goal with 7 months left in the year.

I ran up Lake Mountain with Jun and MattVB. We had an awesome run. Jun set the pace and typically we stop running and start hiking about 1.5 miles in when the trail gets steep, but not today. Jun kept running up the steep hills, so Matt and I did too. It was a lot of fun. I ran up the hills without stopping until 3.3 miles in. It was really steep and I could have kept running, but I realized my hiking pace would actually be a little faster going straight up, so I hiked the steeper sections near the top, but I think we ran at least 90% of the 4.2 miles up and it showed with a PR of 1:02:50. My previous PR was last Sat at 1:15. It was cold and windy at the top, so after I gagged down a gel we went down.

Jun took off like a rabbit and after about a half mile I couldn't see him anymore. After the steep rocky section I kept it under 7:00 most of the way back to the car and finished in 1:33. I love running down that mountain. I wonder if playing air guitar while blasting Janes Addiction slows your pace? My previous best time was 1:48, so it was a good day for sure.

After my run up Lake Mountain on Tues I played 18 holes of golf at Thanksgiving Pt. (I totally blew up out there and lost at least 25 balls). On about the 16th hole I noticed some sorenes in my left achilles. By time I got home it was hurting, so I took some ibuprofen and then it was still a touch sore on Wed, so I wanted to take it easy, so I just did 4 really easy miles on the TM. I planned on 3, but it felt ok so I did another mile.

Weights at the gym. I lifted for an hour and had a really good session. I worked my chest, arms, delts and lats.

I wanted to test out my achilles today, so I went up Mt. Wire after work. I took it easy and I was surprised at how good everything felt. The weather was perfect and I enjoyed the dry trails and wild flowers. I made it up in 44 minutes and there was a couple on the summit that were surprised to see me running up the summit ridge. They asked me my time and couldn't believe it. It took them two hours. We chatted for a few minutes and then I headed down.

The run down was fun and my achilles felt good. I had a smile on my face and my pace picked up. I finished in 1:11:11 and my achilles still felt good, so I was really happy about that, but it didn't last. By time I got home it was sore and it just got worse from there. I iced it which seemed to help, but it was really sore again after I woke up this morning (Sat) and after icing it a few more times today it is still sore. I guess I am injured and I'll probably be taking some time off to rest this so my whole summer isn't ruined.
