Hiking 3:00:00 [3] 8.0 mi (22:30 / mi) +760m 17:22 / mi
shoes: Brooks Running 17

Hiking in the Ansel Adams Wilderness up to Jackass Lakes with Sam and Presto! Awesome hike :-). The snow depth maps seemed pretty accurate. We were totally fine with just microspikes towards the top. The hike started out with a nice steep ascent through some really nice forest. The lower, middle, and upper Jackass Lakes were all very nice, but sadly devoid of donkeys... Tree line was just above upper Jackass Lake, so we trundled on up towards Madiera Peak and got some amazing views of the Minarets, the John Muir Wilderness, and even the mountains around Evolution Basin!

We decided the footing and the snow were getting a bit sketchy, so we didn't end up summitting (we'll have to come back sometime in the summer) and turned around after lunch. Presto was delightfully frolicky on the way back down. We haven't seen him having that much fun in a while. Super fun day!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching back at home.

Hiking 1:00:00 [3] 6.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 17

Hiking in Nelder Grove with Sam and Presto! After some consulting of the snow depth satellite map, we decided that the best area for hiking this weekend was the southwestern side of the Ansel Adams Wilderness. I wasn't convinced my hip was up for two hard hikes in a row, so we decided to check out Nelder Grove, which is the only Giant Sequoia grove that allows dogs (as far as we know).

We were expecting a really small area with a high density of really big trees. However, Nelder Grove is actually a fairly large area with a very low density of really big trees. The big trees were EXTREMELY big, but the experience was sort of less amazing than we were hoping. It was still a nice day for a walk and it seemed pretty easy on my hip, and we did see some big trees, so it was all good :-). Presto seemed perplexed by our interest in the trees.

Stretching 5:00 [3]

Quick stretch in the motel.

Running 27:00 [3] 2.8 mi (9:39 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Running 17

5min run/1 min walk with Sam and Presto! My hip was bothering me a bit for the first 5 minutes and then a little bit during the 1 min walk. I stretched it a bit and then it felt fine for the rest of the run. Running for 5 minutes at a time is starting to feel more like just running :-).

Strength 5:00 [3]

Normal abs (with one full set of 30 tuck-ups instead of 2).

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching.

Sunday Nov 19 #

Biking 1:30:00 [3] 16.2 mi (5:33 / mi)

Normal biking loop up and over Grizzly Peak! It was another really nice day for a bike ride. My groin muscle was slightly sore from yesterday, but otherwise I felt pretty good. We put some persimmons bread in the oven as I was leaving, so I came back to warm baked goods. Yum!!!

Stretching 10:00 [3]

Normal stretching.
