Saturday Golden Gate Canyon State Park
I didn't take those pictures but that's where we ran.
1:45 through beautiful state park. I can't believe I've been up here for 10 months and am just now finding this. It's basically in my back yard! Bill Fanselow took me on a loop and I knew better than to wear my HR monitor... some things are better left unknown. I felt really very good for this and I think yesterday shook out a few cobwebs. It's always like this too after a break in training. I've been running almost entirely at MAF now for going on 13 years and it seems a strong aerobic base is never far below the surface. One intersting observation I made today- I was bundled up with layers and no skin left bare except my nose and neck and I was freezing the entire run. Bill however- started in shorts then shed his shirt half way through the run! Very different metabolisms going on here. I'm very good in the heat and Bill isn't. Bill is leaning out for his upcoming marathon and I stay the same weight no matter how much I don't eat or eat. I never bonk and I rarely get dehydrated because I don't sweat. Hopefully these are all good signs for Leadville. Good run with good company on great trails. Golden Gate might be my new playground.
