went from the Ahwahnee (yosemite valley) up the mist trail, to little yosemite valley, to the merced lake trail. went out 10.4 miles in 3hr 30min. there was more ele gain than i had thought! i gotta learn to read my topo map better, ha. anyway. was a fun workout. it was my first time doing over 20miles this season. (I did 15 mi on monday with 8000 ft of ele change, 5.5 miles of speedwork on tuesday, then this 21.8mi on wednesday.  so, the fact im not tired at least is good! my endurance seems on track so my run from Tuolomne to Mammoth should be pretty easy. which is good. I had been worried I wouldnt be fit enough for a 30+ by june 3rd, but everything seems good Smile

heres some pics and a Garmin link.




























Melvin the Adventure squirrel!



not sure where i am here, i think its the trail? or just rocks, ha. this was the 10.4 mile spot, so i ate a snack here n headed home.



havent seen any human-people in like 4 hours! Smile (i did see a coyote though which was cool)



cool tree



wierd burned and flooded area





Half dome from the other side






Nevada Falls

Beautiful pix!  Thanks for the report.  Clever use of the squirrel.  Maybe I need a travelling companion like that.

@ Longcut, ive adopted scott jurek's eating style, and have found my recovery time to have improved incredibly! by like 100+ percent!  i totally doubted all the benefits, i thought maybe he was special. but I gave it a try and after only 3 weeks of no processed foods/refined sugars/flour etc. and no animal products at all, my recovery time is like zero. i feel no affects of lactic acid build up or anything! its crazy how good my muscles feel.  i feel better than i have in like forever. and i still get more than enough protein. ima stick with this and by next year ill feel like runnin round the world Smile  

for u who dont know, mr. jurek has won the western states 100 like 6 or 7 times all on whole, natural foods. ...that means shit that grows outa the ground. not mc donalds Wink

i run on hammer drinks, beans, avacado, corn tortillias and fruit n nuts. since i quit meat, milk and eggs i feel like i can fly over mountains . and until last month, i thought all the breakfast pork chops n fried eggs protien was helping me, ill admit i was wrong as i cant argue with the results in my times and endurance gains that i see on my stopwatch.

@ Tekewin- yus! i take Melvin everywhere on runs and climbs, hes in the sidepocket of my pack like where a bottle would go so hes visible, he reminds me that it should be all about having fun and to not be to serious! and that im loved. (my super awesome boyfriend bought him for me Smile
