I'm beyond excited that I rode to the summit of Evergreen Mountain in the snow today! Yay for riding my favorite trail in the winter :) Snow is definitely getting soft in this warm weather - might be muddy this weekend:

My happy place:

I have to spend the morning driving up to Fairplay to meet my framer to get a big batch of frames. Not my favorite drive in the mountains, but hey, better than meeting him in Denver! I'm sort of tempted to take my boots and putz around with my camera at the top of Kenosha Pass on my way home. I need some reference of aspens in the snow. I'd take the fatbike, but I'm not entirely comfortable riding it out of cell range. A lot more can go wrong quickly in the winter!

Stats taken after run and before dinner, %water 68.1, muscle 37.6, bone 3.9. I didn't want to run on the treadmill this evening and so broke out the cold weather gear so I could run outside. It was around 40 and wind chill was in the 30s....BRRRR! Dark too and used the headlamp here and there where there's not as much light or not light. Decent pace for the conditions. Right knee started to bother me around mile 4 but subsided after mile 5. Last mile was pretty strong, ~8:19 I think.

Will register for the Turkey Burnoff, the 10 mile distance, which I've done with Jenn and others for the past couple of years now. She's just going to do the 5 miler this year but I enjoy doing the 10. If I can continue to run, I think I'm going to sign up for the Bahamas Marathon after that. Found out there hasn't been much competition the last 3 years in my AG, so I figure "What the heck!". Will sign up for that after Thanksgiving I think. Need motivation to get this weight off so I look [...]

Banged my leg on a machine at a gym and now can barely walk its so bruised. Cxl'd my spin class for tomorrow grrrr. I'm such a klutz!

PT
10 minute warm up on the elliptical trainer.

My NEW PT texted me just as I was walking in to the gym to say she had to reschedule as she had a headache. Boo hoo! I was so pissed off. Fortunately another trainer was free and I got a good hard sweaty workout in with him. I fired the other girl and will book with him for my last session next week. I wish I had met him in May. What a joke this gym is!

I discovered last night that getting up the stairs constitutes a quite strenuous workout. Kind of like a deep one leg squat followed by a tricep pushup. :) Yep, finally made it up to bed last night. Had my foot propped up on 3 pillows and wasn't really comfortable moving around, so I essentially stayed in one position all night - with my boot on. Felt like crap when I got up. Played around with a few things today and am going to try doing things a little differently tonight.

Doc visit went well. He said I was the first patient he ever had that was smiling on the first followup. His assistant unwrapped my foot and I finally got to see the new foot. He didn't cut as extensively as I thought he would. I have 10 stitches down the side for the bunion and 3-4 stitches in each toe for the hammertoe correction. There is an additional cut with 5 stitches where he went after the neuroma. While I do have the frankenfoot appearance, I was able to look past all the stitches and really marvel at [...]

Well no bike ride but I did move snow for about 8 hours I think today - between the driveway 5 times I think and helping a neighbor get to her horse barn. We got hammered today - probably 3 feet in our area alone today!

Before i forget - i did not have any coffee before i started today's run. I think this may have kept my HR from spiking up more quickly at the beginning of the run.

Tried to get my RHR again this morning. somewhat more successfully in the past.
The Min i got was 57, so i guess that was it for today. I think i'm keeping it from coming down, because i'm getting anxiety over not having it come down to or below my previous low of 54. I thinks its counterproductive to "try" to get your RHR to come down ;)

As for today's run. I was pretty "okay" with it. I hesitate to say "happy", because really if i'm truly "happy" with 12'20" miles i don't know if i should be running at all.

On the positive side tho, i dropped my ceiling to 75% today (152). I actually decided i would to the run up to 75%, walk down to 65% thing again. As it turned out, i was able to run the whole time and keep it under 75%. And actually my avg was around 70%. I really tried to keep it close to 70%, but i didn't w[...]
