Ran with my group - hot

Tired of being tired. Seriously, no time to train. I feel more tired than if I was training. I've been waking up at 3 am and not stopping until after 9 pm. The weird thing is my legs are throbbing! I have a feeling that I will be very slow at the Boulder Peak. I don't feel sharp, rested or fast :(

Today's run started at 10,600 feet near the parking lot at the Vail Pass Rest stop. Ramone and I ran up Shrine Pass road for a few miles to Shrine Pass Trail Head and then ran up the single track to the summit @ 12K. It was so beautiful Ramone is out cold now!

About 2200 feet of ascent and mostly above 11K.

Still in Vail... I hope to get a run in this morning and then hopefully the pond tonight and perhaps a ride if I have time. Ramone is really a great athlete. He's ready to run!

Ramone is a Gatorade-bogarter!

Ran up the Berry Picker trail to to Eagles nest and back down. Up in about 46 minutes (3 miles). Ramone was over it by 2 miles! The little guy is such a trooper; Ramone knows how to 'run with his heart' and I love him for that.

Over 2800 feet of climbing

brick off the swim

Rode to the top of Dear Creek from the Gravel pond - 54 minutes. Felt pretty good but never really hammered.

Brick off the run

Wasn't planning on running but I felt really good so what the heck.

  • 40m 25s
  • 1975.00 meters
  • 02m 03s /100 meters

Swam at the Gravel Pond. Windy and choppy out there...

  • 32m 04s
  • 12.60 miles
  • 23.58 Mi/hr

Hilly course but I hammered it. The last 5 miles were into a headwind and up a steep hill. I had the 3rd fastest bike.

  • 21m 10s
  • 3.10 miles
  • 06m 50s /Mi

This was a trail run! It frickin' hurt. By far the most difficult 5k that I have ever run (tri or stand alone). Brutal 1.5 mile uphill to the finish at 10,200 feet above sea level 4th fastest run.

  • 09m 25s
  • 500.00 meters
  • 01m 53s /100 meters

10:05 to transition which included a run from the pool and out to transition. 62nd on the swim.

Great race up in Leadville! Time: 1:04:34 5th place overall: I missed 3rd place by 30 seconds so it was close and I beat last years winning time by 1:30. 1st place in AG I was really pleased with my race, the second place guy ran 9:20 at Kona last year and even though he had 3 minutes on me out of the pool, he still only beat me by 3 minutes or so. I think I held my own. The cat who won was from Texas, and was just a monster! I am anxious to see the official results and splits. Also, I did have the course record for about 30 minutes, but by the time the rest of the fast guys came in I dropped down to 5th. I'll take it!
