Wednesday (13,814 steps) - Runners Roost Boulder! I was obviously in no shape for the trail run, so we decided we would do the road 5K. New Balance was there and we got to demo some of the new road shoes - which I really liked!!
Friday (23,060 steps) - Up early to meet a bunch of folks at Wash Park for Pete's birthday run! Somehow, I was able to run 3 (fairly speedy) miles, with very little walking.
|Rocket was a bit freaked out by the balloon!|
Saturday (23,355 steps) - Runners Edge! Thankfully, no aid station, so we were able to stay in bed a little longer. Met at Lyons Park in Golden and I had planned on 6, and thankfully, the route was a 6 mile loop. I planned on "run/walk" but with no set intervals. The outbound miles were hilly, so I walked a lot more, then took it easy on the flats/downhills. Not too bad of a pace. I dangled my feet in the creek for a bit, which felt great (after I got used to it).
I told A she could have a friend over for a sleepover, but the girl's parents said she couldn't come to our house, but A could go over there. So after we both were showered, I drove her over, then stopped at the grocery store. Stayed up ridiculously late (like 11!)Sunday (8,356 steps) - The day of nothing!!! I stayed in bed until almost 10:30. I can't even remember the last time I didn't have to do anything. Watched TV until A texted me to pick her up at noon. We went to the mall (ick) to do some back to school shopping. Thankfully, A is thrifty and only picked out a handful of new clothes. We got all her actual school supplies done as well. Glad to have that out of the way. On the way home we stopped by to see Sully. By the time we got home it was after 5. A made me breakfast for dinner and we watched Lifetime. (Life is good!)
Monday (21,117 steps) - Took my first classes at PF. First was core, which wasn't quite as tough as I imagined it would be. (Maybe I'll be feeling it later, who knows). I stuck around to take the PF360 Strength, which I really liked. As always, probably not the best idea if I have a trail run the same day, but eh, I've never made the best decisions.
Thanks to an earlier storm, it was overcast and "cool" for our run at North Table! A decided to stick with Paula and John (and Maya, the dog), while I did my own thing. I didn't feel as awful as I assumed I would, although my ankle was still feeling a little tender. I even opted to do the two mile add-on loop on the new Rim Rock trail.
