  1. RUN
    great Esprit de She 10K 6.2 mi 01:05 10:29 pace

    I believe this was the time showing when I crossed the finish line. I'm so happy with my overall pace! We had over 600 runners. I got 2nd in my age group!! My 1st 10K so a PR by default.

    great Core class 00:30

    Usually do Barbell after this class, but decided to skip all the squats & lunges to rest my legs for tomorrow's race.

    great Easy Warm Up Run 2 mi

    Very relaxing evening run at the trail around the gym.

  4. RUN
    injured 4 mi @ East Lake 4.14 mi

    I think that mountain run roughed me up a little more than I realized - feeling sore ribs the harder I had to breathe. So didn't run as fast as I originally planned. .45mi WU; 3 mi run, avg ... read more

      Yes Chris, it is a bike trail too and there is this real steep stair part leading down to the river that biker's have to carry their bikes. And, yes, this is just outside of Boulder - head out west on Baseline to Flagstaff & follow the road up the mountain.

      Thanks Azaka! Lesson learned - don't turn around to yell/look at someone behind you while still running forward - NOT too smart. And there was a dog in there somewhere...

      Nice! Core work is so challenging. I like to think I have a good core because I don't carry much fat there (all in my thighs and butt and arms), but every time I do a core workout, I find out that lack of fat does NOT equal muscles!!!!! Lol

      It definitely was a challenge for me - my whole front & side rib cage area is sore to the touch today.
