Strength 1:00:00 [3]

Starting the new Endurance Strength program. Working with one of the coaches at my old gym from IL. He’s offering his programming remote via TrainHeroic, which is the app I’ve been using the last year for Field Strong programming. More focused towards cyclists and endurance athletes, with corrective movements and less CNS stress. 2 days a wk, with an optional 3rd day for core/corrective mvmts.

Trekking 1:00:00 [3] 3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend. Definitely a drive from Sedona but well worth the trip to see something so beautiful. Check pics on FB/IG if you’ve never seen it. Its a process to get into the Canyon but completely seamless with a good tour who takes care of everything. No wait at the top of the Canyon and a great guide, Nelly, who knew where all the best quick photos were and how to take them quickly with smartphones.

Trekking 52:22 [3] 2.77 mi (18:54 / mi) +517ft 16:04 / mi
shoes: Lone Peak 3.5 purple

Soldier’s Pass Trail, checking out Devil’s Kitchen, Seven Sacred Pools, and some secret arches. We got there just after the gate opened and eventually found the obscure trail to the arches, which were amazing. Spent quite a bit of time climbing in them...the 2 arches are stacked on top of each other and accessible the inside via a crack and ledge. Another crack for us on top of the little mesa and gave us incredible views.

Bike 3:53:41 [3] 23.19 mi (6.0 mph) +2312ft

Went to Over the Edge this time for bikes. I chose an Evil The Calling 27.5+, and Dusty went for a Juliana Furtado 27.5. Mine was pretty similar to the Pivot, but I did enjoy the Eagle. We headed out through surface streets to some trails that should get us to our main loop. Unfortunately I missed the no bikes sign on the map, and there were no signs on the trail to tell us. We ended up with a pretty spectacular hike a bike that was super sketchy in spots along Lizardhead til it dropped back down. After a regroup, we hopped on Chuckwagon to Mescal to Deadman’s Pass back to Chuckwagon. Great flowy trails with sweet drops and rocky tech sections. Also a lot of people, so you had to check your speed regularly. After a snack break, we decided to take Girdner back, and I think it was the best of the day. No one on it and we could fly. The stoke was high today.

Parked at Midgley Bridge and went through Wilson Canyon, which dead ends to a gorgeous canyon view. After turning back, we took the Wilson Mtn trail for a higher return trip. Afterwards, we rented a 4 seater Razor for the afternoon and ripped around on Schnebley Hill Rd and Dry Creek Trail. Total blast.

Our time zones are all off, so we took advantage and went for a sunrise hike around Bell Rock. Great slick rock scrambling. The views from night to dawn to daylight were fantastic.

Headed to Absolute Bikes and picked up some primo rides for the day, Pivot Mach 5.5s, 27.5+ with plenty o travel. And droppers of course. Headed basically across the street and right onto the Slim Shady trail to the dbl black diamond HiLine. SOOO good. Red rocks red rocks red rocks. Some hike-a-bike. From there, Baldwin -> Templeton -> Slim Shady.
