Lighter than the last two outings.
Strange progression system, running a 5-min interval set then a 3-min interval set. Also I’d like to know why the gates on nature-trails have to be offset like this :
I get that you’re keeping cars out, but why this 2-3′ offset that prevents someone from walking or, let’s say RUNNING, in a straight line through it ? I have to approach these damned things at a wide angle, far to the left, and try to straight-line and deke through it so’s not to lose speed. Every time, almost clipping my left hip on the second gate. And if there’s other foot traffic ? A jam-up and I’m losing valuable pace.
The gate above is one from my actual route. At least with the white vehicle-access gate in the far background, you can run straight past it on the left or the right.
