Yay -- I'm caught up with my first week of LoCO FIT Spring Training, even though I was out of town for four days. I did the Thursday workout on Wednesday in Houston; I did the Tuesday workout yesterday (Saturday); and my Saturday long run today (Sunday). :-P
I had planned an out-and-back route from home to the Meadowlark trail in Superior (since that would include a big hill climb). But, apparently the Coal Creek Trail connector from Hwy 36 to McCaslin is closed for construction work (and it looked like a total muddy mess -- not a closure I'd want to ignore).
So I ran along the bikeway for a while (noisy!), and then decided to take the underpass to Davidson Mesa. But, the underpass was a lot father west than I remembered -- I had to run along the shoulder of 50-mph Marshall Road for quite a while. Generally, I don't enjoy the noise or the traffic of road running, and I'm constantly afraid I'm gonna get run over by a texting idiot. But I survived. :-P And I have a new appreciation for the many miles of off-street trails & paths we have around here...
Weather was nice -- 50ish, mostly sunny, no wind.
