Trying to make the best out of doing jack diddly. Watched a lot of Everybody loves Raymond Reruns and Started on Bob’s Burgers. Bob’s Burgers is hilarious!!!!!
First Run since my 50. I ran to the top of storm peak and back. I love running down a groomed slope with just shoes on. Just Gettin all slippery and bustin shit and hurting small ligaments in my knees and ankles.
4/6-Mon-Spring Creek-5.4 mi (+625ft)
Ditch loop after work. First non snow run of the year. A great day indeed! Well a little post holing…but had a 3 mile stretch where I go to bust out some 6 min miles. I got all paranoid post holing. There were moose tracks everywhere, and I know those goofy fuckers love some goat. I was rushing during the post holing and like sliced my leg. Then I went the grocery store and some chick was like “EWWWW UR BLOODY” and I looked down and I was all bloody and gross. I still proceeded to check out with my Kombucha and sour gummie worms….but could see the horror of the girl in my peripheral vision at check out
4/7-Tue-Spring Creek-6mi (+720ft)
Out and Back. After Work. Fast Miles Again. Hamstrings starting to hurt from lack of speed work in 5 months.
4/8-Wed-TIED UP AT WORK-0mi (+0ft)
Some peope have the oppurtunity to train and get by on little work….giving them an ability to put more hours in the mountains. Not this guy. I love engineering and making good money. 50-60hr work weeks and running 80+ miles a week….a hard life but hard work is good. I look up to people who work full time and train and still win….or people that make the best out of the situation they are in. I know a bus driver who has ran 23 100s. Thats insane
4/9-Thur-Spring Creek-6mi (+720ft)
Out and Back. Guess I got a little obsessed with this route. haha. I had to hurdle some redneck ladies german shepard…she had no control of it and I could telll from half a mile away that he was going to snap at me. German Shepards are psychos, but are also gorgeous creatues and I would like to jump into a pile of them.
4/10-Fri-Apartment to Spring Creek- 17.5 (+1,900ft)
I am going to start doing flatter runs to prep for leadville. Staying more consistent with a 8:30 min mile at any grade under 10%. It was a nice afternoon to put in some miles.
4/11-Sat-Apartment to Fish Creek to Spring Creek=21 mi (+2,400ft)
Looking for my open trails. Anything on the north side is still icey. I ended up giving an 84 year old lady a piggy back ride up a hill. She was having a really hard time but was dead set on seeing Fish Creek Falls.
AM-MadCreek 8mi (+1300ft)
Mad creek is a cool place for early year running. It is a crazy violent creek carving a canyon into the mountain. I don’t have any good pics looking down at it because the trail is way up above and the creek is covered in trees. So heres two pics as seen on my run.
PM-Core Trail Steamboat blvd Loop-10mi (+920ft)
I fucked up my knee or something. Like 3 miles left I all of a sudden have a weird knee pain. Stupid. Dates(the food) are awesome. Pavement isnt
I find gooey by glass animals to be soooo sexy URGHHGHHGHHGH. The video is so weird.
I love Chet Faker. That fucking savage has soul. The middle girl in the video looks almost exactly like the last girl I dated. I find it odd but kind of like a good way to spark a memory. She was a yoga instructor here and I had a 5 week fling with her. She was so strong and so expressional, I like loved hanging out with her. She would get mad and throw her hair around…or slap my in the face then kiss me. I loved that shit haha.. We were dead opposites except for the same tastes in music, which goes further than almost anything else to me. It is so cool to like lay in bed and just play good music and hang out.
I made a new friend named Eva, who is from the Czeck Republic. She is a die hard vegan and invited me over for a Vegan Fest. I learned a lot. But most of all….I enjoyed everything she made. It went from Slaw to Tacos to Desserts. Alll was delicious.
I am big into portabella mushrooms now. I mixed balsamic vinagrette, garlic, and old bay (thanks lau!) and pour it alll of them and bake. Looks like shit, tastes like power. Apology for the display…im a 26 year old guy that lives alone and doesn’t know fancy from fried fish.
