A day to catch-up on sleep and work.

Thursday Mar 7 #

Run / Hike 25:00 [3] 1.5 mi (16:40 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

Travel day -- walked to & from office, and walked a L-O-N-G way in the Houston airport (from my gate to a lunch spot at the opposite end of the concourse, and then back to my gate), and then the usual long walks at DIA.

Wednesday Mar 6 #

Run / Hike intervals 49:44 [3] 4.93 mi (10:05 / mi)
slept:6.0 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

The group from Monday's run told me about another run on Wednesdays at lululemon. I joined the group and, once we got started, I decided to do one of do the LoCO FIT workouts I missed this week, since we were pretty spaced out along the running route: run one mile to warm up (I went about 1.5); 10 x (1 minute fast / 2 minutes recovery); run a half mile to cool down.

Tuesday Mar 5 #

Run / Hike 15:00 [3] 0.8 mi (18:45 / mi)

I couldn't run today since we had an all-day meeting starting at 7:45 am, immediately followed by group dinner. But I did walk to & from our office, and to & from dinner.

Monday Mar 4 #

Run / Hike 29:31 [3] 3.32 mi (8:53 / mi)
slept:8.0 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

Travel day to Houston for work. While googling for a running route, I discovered that there was a group run starting at a pub near my hotel. I joined that group and did two laps around The Waterway, then had a beer with the group afterwards. Then I had another beer with my co-workers who were at happy hour upstairs in the same pub. :-P

Sunday Mar 3 #

Run / Hike 1:53:21 [3] 4.06 mi (27:55 / mi) +496ft 25:01 / mi
slept:6.0 weight:120.3lbs shoes: Saucony Razor (Snow)

I got up at 6am and left the house at 7am to get to Eldora early, to help Doug with setup & registration for today's RMOC Ski-O meet that started at 9:30 am. It's usually 45-minute or one-hour drive.

Two hours later...I was sitting in bumper-to-bumper, stop-and-go traffic in Nederland. I eventually got turned around at the high school, since the parking lots were full and the road in to Eldora had been closed. ARGH!

Apparently only three people made it to the meet -- one guy who took the bus, and two back-country skiers who skied in somehow. What a disappointment, mainly for Doug, who did all the course setting, map printing, equipment hauling, etc. (He had gotten there at 7:30 am before the lots filled up.)

I decided to go to Brainard Lake since I had already driven most of the way there. There was plenty of parking when I arrived. :-P During my two-hour snowshoe hike out and back on the Sourdough Trail, I saw maybe six other people. I guess everyone else was at Eldora...

For once, I had THE PERFECT LAYERS! Ears, hands, feet, and torso were all perfectly comfortable. I might have been too hot if I had been running, but I was just walking (with some occasional downhill running).

Weather was overcast, intermittent light snow, no wind, and about 20°F -- ten degrees warmer than Boulder. The woods were very nice, and the snow on the trail was fluffy but not too deep.

I finished my hike and left in time to catch all the ski traffic going back down the canyon. %^*@($!!!
