Wednesday (21,723 steps) - Core class during lunch. Runners Roost Boulder! It was super hot (again) and we did a pretty challenging route.
Friday (26,733 steps) - Core class during lunch. Had planned to go to Lair o' the Bear after work since I knew A was going to be at a party/sleepover. Turns out she ended up needing a ride so I had to go home and get her there. Decided to go to the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge for a run. I put on bug spray, headed out, and proceeded to get chewed up by flies. Pretty miserable run.
Sunday (29,406 steps) - To the amazement of everyone, Ben and I were up and out the door just after nine for a long day of hiking/running. (We probably should have been out hours earlier, but...) Ben had mapped out a pretty cool route (that was going to be long, with a lot of vertical), but when we arrived at the lower lot we found out the fire road we hoped to drive up was closed. Ugh. It ended up being about 4.5 miles just to get to the trail head for Argentine Pass. Womp. (Not that it was bad training, we still gained about 1000' in those miles.
|Moose on the loose! (A calf jumped out shortly after I took this)|
Monday (26,041 steps) - Ugh - early drive into Denver. SUPER hot, and Ariel ended up going to Water World with her friend, so I opted to skip the exposed New Terrain run and decided to go Eldorado/Boulder for a loop I mapped out. It was blissfully clouded, but about two miles in it started to rain. By mile three it was raining pretty heavily, although I never got cold because it was still in the 60's. The trails got a bit muddy, which is never fun. Loop ended up being just under nine miles.
