I enjoyed my Friday rest day. I was feeling pretty fatigued, and my body was pretty sore after Wednesday’s resistance workout and a Thursday trail run/walk in El Moro. On Thursday I had some company for a change! My son and niece joined me (it took some arm twisting on my part), so instead of sticking to the wider fire roads (which I do when running alone for safety), we dropped down into Emerald Canyon and Emerald Falls, before hoofing it back up the relatively steep hills back to Bommer Ridge.
It was a nice evening in the canyons. The only problem was the fact that I had to eat dust behind a couple of young rabbits all evening. Yikes!

ETP Day 12 (Friday): Scheduled rest day. Calorie budget of 2012 was exceeded by 328. Damn that slice of Banana Cream pie!
