Wednesday (14,682 steps) - Had my alarm set to run 5 miles before work. When it went off, I could HEAR the wind, so I promptly went back to sleep. Between the wind and my weird calf/foot ache, I figured another day off couldn't hurt. A had her second orchestra concert, which was a lot of fun, but LONG - we didn't get out of there until almost 8:30!
Friday (15,909 steps) - BUSY day, but thankfully a rest day. Took my car in to get an oil change, went to Runners Roost to pick up our ROTG packets during lunch. Ended up staying at work until 6, then took A to a sleepover in Thornton. Evening was spent catching up on House of Cards and getting my aid station ready.
Saturday (30,931 steps) - Got to sleep in a bit since my aid station wasn't very far away, at just west of 14th and Wadsworth. Then kept heading southwest until I got to the RTD at the Jefferson County government buildings. We had a fun run planned - a point to point "net downhill" run. When A was still planning on running we had a goal of 8 miles. I had 10 on schedule, but got talked into doing 12 since that's all the course was set up for. The first time I ran a "net downhill" race in 2010 I was really surprised by how NOT downhill so much of the course was. The first few miles of this route was similar. It was really cold and misty and a decent amount of climbing. I was really tired but had only one goal - no walking outside of the aid stations - which I did! I didn't quite hit "goal pace" miles, but I'm actually on a recovery week so technically those weren't on my schedule anyway. The first 8 miles felt pretty good, 8-10 weren't terrible, but I was really done after that. The just proves that I need to get back into these longer weekend runs to re-build my base!
Sunday (21,9888 steps) - ROTG.
Monday (14,431 steps) - BLAH BLAH BLAH. Rest day, thankfully. After I picked A up at Scouts we made a run to the grocery store.
