Change of Plans


Not only did I not run at Waterton Canyon, but I didn't run my planned 12 miles.

I was up most of the night with a terrible stomach ache and other things that go with that (doesn't take much imagination, does it?) I thought I felt pretty good this morning - until I started running. I made 5 miles and then bagged it.

I purchased an annual pass to a nearby park - so I can drive there and skip the big honkin hill that is on the way home from there. I found some nice trails there and I think the pass will pay off. It was really nice. I took the above picture on a trail down to the creek.

It is a beautiful day, I just wish I felt better.

Now I am debating whether I should try the 12 miles tomorrow or skip it and take a nice bike ride....

Hope you are feeling better soon. I would opt for the bike ride tomorrow...both because it is difficult to catch-up on miles and a bike ride on varied terrain sounds so nice (and I'm sure you wouldn't mind a flat ride along the ocean). Have a great Saturday.

I say run 7-8 AND ride your bike :-D Somebody needs to splat Guhn...

Mountain Lions, Big Horn Sheep, sheesh, you have a lot wildlife to worry about!!

What to do tomorrow depends on what's more important to you...bike ride or run...or both. :)

And, I do think you'll notice a difference running at a lower elevation for your marathon. That will be a boost!!

Hi Mary...remember this maniac!!! I've not died just took a self-imposed lazy streak and haven't done much running this year but I'm trying to turn that around. I'll be in Denver this coming week, at least a portion of it I think, downtown for meetings. I hope to get in some running if the weather will cooperate....

I hope you are feeling better! We all had the crummy tummies lately and it's no good at all!
