Sat. Mt. Tammany 10 @ Delaware Water Gap on rugged single-track--31.56 m in 10:16:48 (19:32 per mile) with about 9,600' of total elevation gain (8 loops).

Sun. rest

Overview:  Quad soreness unexpectedly showed up on my Monday run after yoga session, my first yoga class in a while.  Guess the combo of speed, tempo, pavement running, and hilly trail run last few days in Mexico City was the culprit.  Spent rest of week loosening up, and got a timely massage Tuesday which helped out with that. Skipped speed and any lower body sessions to rest up for Mt. Tammany.  The race went well (separate report coming).
