We've had some pretty severe weather up here today with lots of lightening and off and on rain. I cut my ride short for fear of my life. Today was originally planned as a bike/ long run but my motivation to run wasn't there. So this morning was a 1:00 ride up on a super steep jeep road with tons of loose rock. The goal was technical skill work but the climbs were anaerobic at times so it was intervals also.
Then mid-morning was almost 3 laps on Walker Ranch. It started dumping rain so I bailed off the trail and hit the road. Walker was treacherous in the rain and the rocks were getting slick quick. My upper body is exhausted from ~20 miles on Walker (in a masochistic way carrying my bike up the stairs is my favorite part... brutal. I was holding HR 160-170 hiking up) I can't imagine how it will be after 7 hours at Leadville hitting Powerline and St Kevins!? Another 4+ hour day on the MT bike with just shy of 7k vertical.
