Running 2:50:00 [3] 15.6 km (10:54 / km) +1025m 8:12 / km
shoes: Salomon Speed

Twin Lakes run/hike. Hiked the steeps and ran the easier stuff. I was tired from yesterday but it felt nice to be out in the mountains on such a beautiful fall day. Myka and CO were my team mates for the day.

Running 3:30:00 [3] 15.0 km (14:00 / km) +1100m 10:15 / km
shoes: Salomon Speed

Mt St Piran, Lake Agnes, Big Beehive loop with CO and the BVGT girls. Beautiful fall day. Larches are bright gold and some even starting to go a little brown. Ran into the Rocky Mountain Adaptive group. They were helping a girl up the mountains in a trailer. Our group offered pulling services for about an hour. Great to see the team work.

I tried KT tape on my feet based on some recommendations. It didn't work at all and came off super easily.

Running 55:00 [4]
shoes: Salomon Speed

Dirtbag Run - Spray Lake Road intervals. 1 min on and 1 min off until the top was reached. In each minute off, the top group would turn around and walk down to the people below them and regroup. I think we did a total of 25 repeats to reach the top. We ran back down via Grassi Lakes.

Weights/Strength 45:00 [3]

Starting to get a flow in the program now. It's nice to work out over lunch as it brings me away from the computer.
6 PM

Mountain Biking 1:45:00 [3]

Out with the Rebound crew again. There was much less stopping tonight as the group was a little faster than usual. The last 30 minutes we had to pull out our lights. My light doesn't work with my new helmet which was good to figure out before heading out on a pure night ride. The light is too heavy and the helmet rides down over my eyes.

Running (Trail) 1:00:00 [3] 8.0 km (7:30 / km) +560m 5:33 / km
shoes: Salomon Speed

CNC run on the same loop as last night, only backwards and finishing with the Mosquito trail rather than the full power line. The Salomon Speed are really good on the wet, rocky ground. They grip really well on the downhills. Too many dogs tonight. Two of the dogs were especially difficult to run with. They would run past you and stop right in the middle of the narrow trail and not move (even when you ran into them and tried to push them gently out of the way). One of them was trailing his leash between his legs and way behind him, making it way too easy to step on as he was flying past. I'm not going to be running on Tuesday nights over the winter but I think I will bring it ip anyway. It's not enjoyable.

Weights/Strength 50:00 [3]

It was only my second time through this but somehow it felt much easier than last week. Maybe just remembering some of the things made it better. I adjusted some of the weights and would last through an entire set rather than collapsing early.

Running (Trail) 1:00:00 [3] 8.0 km (7:30 / km) +560m 5:33 / km
shoes: Salomon Speed

Myka and Co joined me for this run. It was a very nice evening and this loop from Quarry to Grassi Lakes and back on Highline is a nice little run. I tried the new Salomon Speed today. I was hoping they would give the feel of the Speedcross but the stability of the S-Lab Sense Ultra and I think they came pretty close. I'm definitely a fan of the lower profile (4mm on this Speed vs. 8mm on the Speedcross). I roll my ankles less with the lower profile.
