I won't say this too loudly - but the heat broke a bit yesterday. I'm trying to train in heat right now since the Cascade Lakes Relay is coming up quickly.

Did 8 hilly miles yesterday with five hard 4 minute intervals. My legs are returning to life after that wicked 1/2 marathon on Sunday. I will try to double today 6 at lunch and 3 this evening. I need more speed. It is unnerving to be so much slower than I was. But that embarassment shouldn't cause me to quit, but to accept that a) I need to work harder and b) 56 is not 36.

Seamstress, be careful in that heat. Your speed will there in the fall when it cools down.

Joined the Rapha Rising: La Centime challenge (to climb 7235 meters (or 23,737') in 8 days during the Tour de France, in celebration of its 100th edition.

So far I've done 25,166', in 3 rides totaling 162 miles (Mon, Tues, and Wed, all solo). I couldn't ride on Sunday when it started, and I can't ride this coming Sunday, so when I CAN ride I'm trying to go big. ;-)

79 minutes of drinking beer followed by 5 minutes of scaring the squirrels, capped by a quick dinner and 3 hours of non-network TV. Tomorrow, I'm going to double that.

Yesterday. Seven mile Mtn bike ride, turtle rock trail variation w/ extra technical sections. Today will be aerobic rest day except for approaches (I think I've been nine days on, between running and biking.) Concentrating on climbing is the order of the day.

Did an Insanity "rest week" workout and then went on a 12 mile Mtn bike ride yesterday. Another rest week workout is on tap for today.

Nice Jaybro!

You ever hit that CurtGowdy MTB zone? Hella fun trails and the setting ain't to bad either. There is climbing out there as well, I'll bet you know all about it. When I lived in FoCo it was one of my favorite places and way better than most FrontRange shitaqua!

Did the entire SGR trail round trip from the house yesterday. Did the loop from the dam to the canyon first and got the uphill out of the way, then Long Beach and back.


Just short of 100 miles, 80 of it bike trail.

Felt better than after the 60 mi the week before. Most likely due to an early start and good cloud cover until about 10:30. Missed finishing before noon by a few minutes.

Still gotta get a real road bike!

Turtle rock trail is a trail circumnavigating central Vedauwoo, Hardman.

I've climbed in Curt Gowdy in decades past Cragar,but didn't know about the mtn bikes trails now. I will check them out in the very near future, thanks! I'll bring my fiver fingers as well..

No aerobic activity today besides a short approach with a large pack, (dble/ triple rack of larger cams, 2 valley giants, water, photo stuff, etc), though I maintain that5.11+ ow is pretty aerobic! Biking/ running every day for over a week though, seemed like time for a rest from it.

Car free, but not idiot free.

Seems there's as many of them on bikes as in cars.

The 5:00 AM start mitigates a lot of that though.

26min up, 22 down on the Bear Gulch / Alambique loop in Wunderlich Park.

After a week of running every other day and biking/climbing the other days, I've somehow put on 3 or 4 pounds. Guessing it's the titanic glutes I'm building, as I ripped the seat of my pants warming up on a boulder problem at the gym this morning. (A makeshift climbing-tape interior patch somehow held up fine.)

Right outside my door I discovered a short section of urban trail going to a Rite Aid. It sunk in that it's fairly steep, and you could just run laps around the block for pretty-much full value. There is also a landscaped drainage of loose rocks on the route for ankle cartilage etc too. Been hitting it up alot in the last week.
