I returned from my not-really-vacation last Tuesday and jumped back in to school the next morning. With all the work I had planned to do the prior week still waiting for me, along with 2 classes starting (1 as TA, 1 as student), I had no time to get myself together before the weekend. But I’m together enough by now for a weekly wrap, anyway. I feel like going with the day-by-day format this week:
It was supposed to be warm today, so I planned to run first thing. (By “first thing”, I really mean more like 8am.) But it was already 60 before the sun fully came up, so I gave up on getting in a relatively cool run and headed out later. I ran 2.5 miles and only melted a little bit.
Long travel day. I had a several-hour layover in Denver, and discovered when I arrived there that most of the pre-security area is under construction. Consequently, all the comfy couches that I had planned to camp out on were gone. Word to the wise: avoid long layovers in Denver if you can…
First day of the semester. I was (am) feeling discombobulated since I didn’t have the expected time to prepare.
Still playing to-do list catch up, but squeezed in 3.3 miles.
Though I ran semi-regularly while in Texas, it had been about a month since I had done any strength workout beyond my PT exercises. I finally went to the gym Friday and am still sore 3 days later.
Finally back on the trails! Kara was excited too. She was less excited about this bridge, where we ended up turning around because the creek was deep enough that she would have been soaking wet if I let her wade through.
The snow bridge, however, gets Kara’s vote of confidence.
We did 5 miles, bringing me over 10 miles for the week for the first time after the injury.
Snow bridge or log bridge?
