Got in a nice run at work today. I’ve found a new favorite run. Short but sweet.
Here’s the profile:
If you read the scales right, you see that it’s 320’ of elevation gain in .17 mile (35.6% grade). The way to get that was by going up about 540 steps. It’s quite a quad-buster that turns the legs to Jell-O.
Afterwards it’s a nice descent down soft dirt trails, including some pretty brutal switchbacks. If you notice that sharp drop at about 1.37 miles, that’s a nasty, nasty stretch of the trail that’s paved, then drops down about ten steps right onto a street. Not too comfortable on the legs.
All told, just under two miles. But I already see multiple laps up the stairs and down the switchback, now that I know the route and can plan for it.
