Mon - 8 miles easy (1,650 feet). Horsetooth/Audra route.
Tues - 8 miles moderate (1,650 feet). 1:07. Out with Kenny, who doesn't appear to know the meaning of 'easy run'. Ended up running this one harder than usual, but was pleased to find the effort easy. Is the taper finally beginning to kick in?
Weds - 8 miles (1,650 feet). More of the same, but slower.
Thurs - 4 miles. Night run to test light set up for Bighorn. Something of a disaster. Fell twice on trails I know like the back of my hand. Learned some important lessons, and that night running isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Will be back out next week for another go.
Fri - 6 miles easy with Amy on Redstone Canyon.
Sat - 7 miles (2,100 feet). Gentle run up Round Mountain with Chad.
Sun - 9 miles (1,700 feet). Horsetooth Mountain Trail Race (7.5 miles, 1.5 mile warm up). 53:58 - 1st.
Total: 50 miles (9,000 feet)
Easy week. Felt strong, strong, strong climbing at Horsetooth Trail Race today. Not feeling too beat up, so hoping for quick recovery in time for Bighorn on Friday. Not much left to do but jog around and wait.
