Uphill Battle against Ladera Reservoirs

I found a nice place in Ladera Ranch to work on my uphill running performance. This is a little stretch of paved road behind Mercantile East shops. It is only 0.3 miles from the entrance gate to the upper gate at the reservoirs with about 220ft of elevation gain.

After I ran it back and forth five times – 3 miles / 1100ft elevation gain – I got completely sober from my dreams of the new Twin Peaks 50 miler. We will see how it goes but most likely the first Holly Jim ascent will kill me early enough to even get a glimpse of the second one :)
