Well, I was pretty psyched to run in the fluffy stuff this morning but my legs barely held together for the run and my psych left quickly. I STRUGGLED this morning...ouch. I guess the last three weeks in a row of 70 or more miles has finally taken it's toll. Time to taper back and prepare for a good effort on a long run in a couple weeks.
It looks like Susan and I are going to squeeze our trip to southern Utah into two days instead of three and I will get my chance to run the Zion Traverse on April 23. Let's just hope the snow keeps melting up there and these current storms don't lay too much snow down. The snow thing could be the only killer of this run right now. I heard there is still substantial snow up on the Wildcat Canyon and West Rim Trails. Melt, melt, melt...
Oh, by the way, for anyone that's interested, the gate for Schultz Pass Road is open.
I just got some awesome news! Glenn Beck's show is getting cancelled this year on Fox! There is good in the world...
Check out Jon Stewart do one last hilarious Glenn Beck bit on the Daily Show, April 7, 2011.
Yesterday: 6 miles (Urban Trail to Schultz Pass Road and back in 46:33 (7:45 average) + 4 miles (to work and back twice)
Today: 11 miles (Urban Trail, Schultz Pass Road, Rocky Ridge Trail and back. Jogged easy and finished in 2 hours. Worked. Probably enjoyed about ten minutes of the run. Felt like walking the rest of the time.)
This Week: 70 miles with 6,500 feet of total elevation gain
