18 days on the elliptical = 999 minutes as of yesterday.

LOVE IT!

Best part is. . . I took my old CD collection out to the gym and have been falling back in love with stuff I haven't heard in years - sometimes decades.

YAY!

Yeah! I have earned enough points (calories burned according to my heart rate monitor) to join Jaybro et al at Moab Brewery tonight!

Hiking out of Negro Bill Canyon today:

I was inspired by helping at the Volcanic 50K and want to do it next year. I've hiked that trail in a day several times, but running it with a tiny bit of support seems like great fun.

So I began adding some longer runs. The 14 miler this past weekend seemed to go well, but my body suddenly started complaining on Tuesday. Took a whole day off - darn!! Made my husband do some massage on that pesky leg and iced the knee several times. It seems happier now. I ran t tentaative flat miles yesterday and 8 hilly miles today. All seems well. Maybe I'll get away with just one day off early enough to prevent an actual big interruption.

I think one of the benefits of playing hard is the undisciplined eatin'and drinkin' afterwards.
Eat, drink and be happy!

A few aerobic moves, moving fork to mouth, lifting beer to lips. Didn't blow it too badly....great dinner at the brewery with The Larry, Squeezo, Michelle, Jaybro, Ferretlegger and Art. Great climbing stories from young, old and in between. Back on the circuit tomorrow!

I ran the Silver Creek Falls Trail Marathon, OR yesterday. Pretty friggin awesome the creek crossing at mile 9 was mid thigh; shet load of single track through old growth; and to finish it off ya run under 3 waterfalls. The course is actually closer to 27 miles and the first 2 hours it was raining: Here's the elevation chart:

Nice, Krames!
A bunch of runs a d rides since I last poked in here. One 26 mile ride with a four mile ru in the middle.

Yesterday was a superb 10 or so mile mtn bike jaunt were we spied some boulders that inspired a bouldering sortie today! Perhaps we have found a new bouldering area! But keep that under your hat.....
I have been eating like crazy, btw.
After two breakfasts today we did the afore mentioned bouldering "sesh" then it was off to the rec center for weights and lap swimming. And a jump start :(

Tomorrow will include a trip to the car guys.....

I did this thill I dry heaved yesterday. An hour of stairs will make your head spin for sure. I'm struggling to walk today.

My first El Cap route is this Spring and I want to get myself into what Hudon calls "Gator wrasslin shape" Maybe I'll keep an eye on this thread for motivation in the next six months.

It was a very, very long time ago, but we used to hop up the stairs (actually the seats in a concrete amphitheatre) on one leg, run down and repeat on the other leg. You have to have a bit of a running start. Seems like we did it for about 20 minutes.

The first time Stair Master came out I was way younger than I am now, and probably in peak physical shape for age at that time. I got on that thing and ground away....in about 10 minutes I really thought I was going to get very friendly with an EMT.

I do try to "take the stairs" whenever I can, but I do find myself getting a weird kinda dizzy as I keep going up landing after landing. Not sure if it's the "round and round" the landings or the monotony of the stair edges creating a vertigo.

Susan

edit: one of the stair exercises I do with a womens'group is to do squats up a steep step of stairs leading up from a beach. We go at the stairs in a side way stance and do squats up the stairs while doing bent arms curls in front of our chest. "Run" down the steps and repeat for several other repeats.

Hey Susan, I stopped by your pad yesterday after work (~2) no one in sight.

No work today, I went for a bike ride drove to bar
M trailhead. 8-9 miles north of town. Got ready and.....
...... Broke the key off in the truck door while locking
But I had another one in my car in town.

Rode a mile and a half of rocky single track, then cut over to the bike trail back to town 8 miles downhill. Got the key and chugged bag up the hill,
-wheeze-
Did another mile and a half of technical mtn biking; a three mile mtn bike ride, with an 18 mile detour!
Then went to rec center, worked out, weights,100 pull-ups, abs, four laps of the pool.

I'm beat! 4th grade special ed tomorrow at 8!

Hmm, flat pass, I'm going to have to buy a mtn bike trail guide

Here's our am workout this mornin. Gittin strong!

Team of three. One climbs, the other tries to haul the load to the top before the climber tops out and gets lowered. Repeat 4x

Just a 25lb wieght is brutal, since theres a lot of friction up top from our gym anchors.

We are trying to work wall specific muscles. Its a nice little circuit.

Somehow, I have had only one soggy run in the last two weeks, and I've been out every day. My feet are still mildly unhappy with the orthotics needing to seat in my new gortex running shoes. It generally takes a couple of weeks for them to stop complaining.

Team rejected for Hood to Coast next year:( So we can't "Run Like the Wind" two years in a row. Guess the Volcanic 50 will remain my inspiration and motivation for next year.
