Wednesday (21,719 steps) - 6 am barre class with Nicole. Hate, hate, HATE the pretzel glut exercises. HATE. My body just cannot do them, and I feel like trying it is a wasted exercise. Went to the Denver store for run club.
Thursday (21,559 steps) - 6 am barre class with Andrea... my 100th class!!! I got some new bracelets and will get a special tank when they finally come in. Pretty exciting! After work we went to the Lakewood store for the Belmar run.
Friday (11,873 steps) - Got to "sleep in" and yet I still felt incredibly tired. I guess that is from taking three 6 am barre classes this week. Picked up A from school and went up to Heather's house for a Friday the 13th gathering. Had some delicious BBQ and as always, it was great to see everyone. Very surprised to get surprise souvenirs from Heather's recent trip to Florida. Gathered up all our gear for snowshoeing!
Saturday (19,938 steps) - Up crazy early for our drive up to Snow Mountain Ranch. Lisa arrived just after 6 am, and we started the drive. Traffic was a fucking nightmare once we hit I-70. We stupidly thought that allowing an extra 45 minutes would be plenty of time, but... Traffic was awful. We spent most of the drive on 70 on the frontage road, cruising at under 10 mph. Once we were finally able to exit towards Empire, the traffic thinned out. We had been worried all week about driving through Berthoud Pass, but it was fine. Roads were pretty dry. We arrived at the Nordic Center with maybe 10 minutes for Lisa to rent equipment. Apparently, we also needed trail passes, which they seemed to want to charge us for, even though the whole event was supposed to be free. THEN, we still had to drive to get to the start of our activity. Luckily, we were only a minute or so late and we were the only ones heading out to the waterfall. We had a blast. A struggled a bit with some of the climbing, and there were sections where there were some deep holes in the trail, and we were disappointed that the trail going to the actual waterfall was closed, but OVERALL, fun. The best part was breaking trail for maybe a mile on the way down.
Sunday (10,643 steps) - Thankfully, I went to the later barre class at 9:30. Headed home for a little bit of rest before driving down to Runners' Roost for the Leadville lottery announcements. It had started snowing, so I was relieved that I didn't know about the run before the event. We just hung out and talked with people and I grabbed one of the good beers before it all started. Sadly, we didn't win any of the drawings.
|But of course, A made friends with Ken - local legend!|
