Total Distance

Early morning run in Sayulita. Headed north on the dirt roads we explored Friday night, looking to connect to San Pancho (5k away, we were told). A few hills, lots of crossing routes, and eventually we were at a beach north of Sayulita. Ran up the beach, another rocky scramble, then we made it to the resort that blocks access to San Pancho. No rock scramble available there, so we climbed up a gully looking for an alternate. Well, it was just a gully, and a steep, brusy one at that. 15 minutes of bushwhacking was enough, and we turned around. Ran back on the beach to the trail, then back up the trail with some detours to check out what we missed. Finally found the highway, but took it back to Sayulita instead of San Pancho. Knee bothering me some, about the same level of discomfort and still nothing consistent. The pain would come back periodically during the day, and I tried to keep it stretched and even iced a little.

1:50 (85 minutes running, 25 minutes brush clearing)
