I caught some crap from a couple people for not posting pics of the camping trip. Here's a few. The third picture is of The Edge trail. It climbs up and runs along that entire ridge (the run takes over 6 hours FYI). The fourth picture is of Liv... my 1 year old.
Today I put the boys down for their nap baby jogger style, which makes their naps some of the most brutal minutes of my week. I ended up feeling quite motivated, a little edgy, and also quite good physically so I ran hill repeats up one of my neighborhood 'bumps'... a ~20% grade at 8600ft altitude. Simple idea- run max effort up the hill until I lost all power, then turn around and run down... repeat. I got 5 intervals between 1:00 and 1:45 in length. With a 100 pound stroller on that grade it was plenty. The downhills tend to be the most difficult both on my legs and my shoulders and arms and core and back.
We also had snow this morning and are forecast for 2 more days of cold and wet. Yes, I'm quite happy!
