Good session on the rollers... longest session since I began using them again this month.


So I was watching a documentary off of Netflix's nifty "watch Instantly" feature while riding my rollers... I haven't finished watching "Unborn In The USA" yet but I will when I return from my run.. but let me say regardless of what side of Roe V. Wade you reside, you should see this documentary. Intense.

As for me, I'm not sure what the Pro-Life movement is all about... life or religion?

One thing is certain:
If bombings on American soil are considered terrorist acts, what terrorists should we fear most?
Bombings by Islam on American soil: 2 The World Trade Center twice (3 if you count the USS Cole)

We also had Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor...

So we have had Saudi backed terrorists striking twice, and Japan once...

We had that nut job American Fascist bombing in Oklahoma City...

Then, since 1977, we have had 40 bombings of Planned Parenthood And other WOMENS health clinics!

Yeah, from what I can tell we don't have to worry about Islam coming over hear to terrorize us... The terrorists already live hear!

Now I'm off to think about this some more on my run!

Wash park... cold! I was just cruising... and then some guy came up behind me and I decided to just let him pass me... Then after a minute or so of staring at his a$$ I decided to pass him... I picked up the pace and as I passed him I made sure that my breathing was very quiet... and then I slowly picked up the pace for about a mile or so... probably about a 6:00 minute pace... after that I didn't hear him so I continued on and thought about whether I should do an Ultra 20 mile snowshoe race up in Leadville the first week of January. Over 2000 feet of climbing. Starting at 10,000 feet with most of the race above 11,000 feet. hmmm... I'm about to snipe a bid in on ebay on a pair of Northern Lites Racing snowshoes which end in 13 minutes... the bidding is at 51 bux... I'm going to come in right at the finish with an in it to win it bid! If I win, I think I will race the ultra!

I won! I won a pair of Northern Lite Elite racing snowshoes on eBay... price paid: $134 They retail for $199... but the pair that I won (used twice) have the fancy bindings that connect right to your running shoes... so mine are like the ones pictured but without that mess of bindings... so they are lighter and faster!

Got up early and met Justin (Hood to Coast Teamer) and Sgt Vik for a frigid jaunt at the canal. The canal was snow covered and and icy but it was pleasant and I felt pretty good. Gorgeous sunrise and it helped warm my gizzard.

so I was a little(a lot) depressed tonight... I wasn't going to workout at all today, but I decided to to take Ramone on an 11PM run.

Back in Denver... but I think I left my phone in Vail!!! SH*T!!! Drove back to Vail... got my phone... drove home via Leadville, Buena Vista, and then home via 285... and did a little "junkin" - a few very good scores! I was very careful driving in the snow... I did see a Jeep Cherokee, a Sub-Urban, and a few other SUV roll-overs... a few stuck 2 wheel drives, but the serious crashes (that I saw) was all by people driving SUV's with too much confidence. Needless to say, today was a needed, but unscheduled, day off!

Actually this was an early morning snowshoe up the service road that parallels I-70 up vail pass... Ramone was so cute! I'll post a pic later...

So yeah, even though this was a snow shoe run, I want to include the miles in my running totals for the year. so there you go...

Beaver Creek... dumping snow all day... I rode hard! Starting to feel the groove...

So I'm up early... sitting here by the hot coals of last nights fire, and I'm looking at a large fox on my porch (near the front door)... I can not tell for sure, but I think he just pissed on my running shoes!

slow pm run with Ramone... we followed a cross country ski trail as far as we could until the dark made it impossible to continue, so we turned around.

Snowboarding at vail. Rode really hard... I can tell that it was my first day back riding... Beaver Creek tomorrow!

Easy spin at Washington Park with Sergeant Vik... The park is still pretty icy in many spots so we kept it at a slow conversational pace

Dreadmill run before dinner... Campo Di Fiore tonight!

tight hammy

I am heading up to Vail for 3 days/2 nights... My buddy, Ted owns a condo at the Racquet Club in East Vail and is generous enough to let me borrow it for a few nights!! Hopefully, I can get some snowshoeing in and some excellent riding too! I love winter in Colorado!

Recovery ride on the rollers... pretty easy... some no hands stretches... but that is about all.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I feel a little worked this morning... I'm not sure if its because of the back to back races or all of the road sodas Vik and I consumed on the drive back from Beaver Creek... (we had a designated driver). Today may be a rest day... perhaps an easy spin on the bike at most... no running.
