training
Eugene- thanks I'll read up on those. I don't think I'm really over training either, just that I might possibly benefit from a pullback for awhile, but then again maybe not :) Mike

: Re: 3rd Annual BPL Spring Run -Zion Training Thread

west to east does provide a drop out option @ ~ 34 miles, however the steepest climb comes shortly after that point there should be decent water at that time of the year, I'm going to bring ...

I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
