Arrived at Mammoth Hot Springs.

We did a nice hike from MHS hotel toward the Beaver Pond trail, then toward Sepelcher Mountain, but then taking the left that goes above the terraces towards Golden Gate, and then taking the next left and returning via the terraces.

We spotted a great horned owl on a tree next to the trail - that was unexpected.

A short run on West Campus. Legs are feeling pretty good.



Travel day - Lawrence to Kansas City to Denver to Bozeman. The smoke at Denver was thick.

MTB cycling 40:00 [1]

Rolling around on West Campus - roads, gravel and grass. Very pleasant weather and legs felt good. Just a short ride was enough as I had to get home to make dinner and do a bunch of laundry.

running 55:00 [2]

Easy jogging on the paved trails along Kill Creek and just off K10 near DeSoto. I took it easy. I also carried the KP map and looked at it a bit.

I stopped at the Sunflower Nature Park on the way home and wandered around a bit. When I returned to the car I noticed a display board with a trail map on it and took a look - it was made by Jane and Lou Betros back in 1997.

MTB cycling 2:05:00 [1]

MTB on roads/levee/river trail.

I took a break when I was on the Sugar Loop and decided to go out on the sand bar and look around a bit. That was a nice break, but also meant 20 minutes in the sun instead of the tree-shaded trail.

The trail was in great shape and my technique seemed smoother than usual. Maybe I'm improving.

I am thinking (hoping) that today was the last crappy-warm training day of the year.

running 1:35:00 intensity: (1:25:00 @2) + (10:00 @4)

Running at Clinton State Park. I finally got around to putting my park pass sticker on the car. So I drive to the lot above Lake Henry and ran west from there.

It was only about 80 when I started, but it felt warmer. There was some humidity and no wind. We've also got some hazy skies from fires out west.

I did 3x HU/ML/HE and that felt pretty good.

I saw no runners or MTBers, but several groups of hikers.
