9 AM

Walking 1:15:00 [1] 3.0 mi (25:00 / mi) +60m 23:32 / mi
shoes: Topo

Easy walk with Nancy up to Rainbow Lake via a clockwise loop, then to town on 2nd Ave and to the museum. Very busy trails: lots of families with kids and dogs, mt bikers, fast-walkers immersed in hefty discussions. There was some commotion about a moose sighting or something of that sort. We did not quite hear clearly, but just went our way taking a left towards the Miner's Creek road. Otherwise no adventurous sightings, but gorgeous flowers everywhere including columbines in a variety of colors.
4 PM

Trail running 1:12:00 [3] 5.71 mi (12:37 / mi) +330m 10:41 / mi
shoes: Topo

After the museum visit and a hearty lunch at the deli, there were intermittent showers but nothing really substantial. So afterwards I ventured out for a shorter run than yesterday with less climb, just in case the showers would become serious storms, which did not happen.

From Meadowcreek trailhead to Lily Pad Lake which was a moderate climb. I felt good so I continued to the Ryan Gulch/Buffalo Ridge trail head near the radio tower. Then I returned, as the clouds did move in and the temps dropped considerably and some thunder was rumbling in the distance. Very comfortable run back, and by the time I arrived at the parking, the sun was out again. Typically CO.

Quite a few hikers on the trails. All very friendly.

Trail running 1:35:20 [3] 5.64 mi (16:54 / mi) +550m 12:58 / mi
shoes: Topo

From Sharon's to Mt Royal after we had spent the morning walking to town for coffee and breakfast. (incl. choc croissant). Very pleasant out with cool breezes and intermittently cloudy. It was tough keeping running in the steepest section at 10000 ft altitude. There was a younger fellow hiking, who was impressed with and inspired by my running as I passed him; so he started jogging as well. So I let him catch up so that I could catch my breadth. He was from Las Vegas, and acclimating a bit before climbing a few of the 14000 footers.
Grand views from the second (lower) peak over Frisco and the reservoir. Love the mountain running!

5 PM

Trail running 55:45 [3] 6.07 mi (9:11 / mi) +90m 8:47 / mi
shoes: Topo

I am cautiously increasing my running mileage. Around SH (mile 1, then over to the Shelter, single track trails, out to Surrey, back to SH, and out and around. A good effort: 9 - 10min/mile on faster trails, 11 / mile on single tracks,miles 1 - 4, then mile 5 on road/dirt road at 7:11, and cool down mile 6 at 11 min.

Monday Jul 22 #

Mt Biking 55:00 [2] 10.6 mi (5:11 / mi) +50m 5:07 / mi

Biking 4 times - twice to work and back home. Good old fashioned European "lunch break at home".

5 PM

Trail running 43:15 [3] 4.0 mi (10:49 / mi) +45m 10:27 / mi
shoes: Topo

Beat the heat wave! Actually it was not nearly as bad as the "advisories" stated. Today was a dry heat day with a max of 91 in our neighborhood. By 5pm it was about 87 - perfect for a woods run. First run in a while. Still need to pamper my groin with warmup and plenty of massaging with Aspercreme before and after. Around SH, starting with a 5 min walk, then steady running with a couple hill workouts and good hip engagement. I sure hope I can get back into regular trail running - I am missing it.
