Crested Butte

9.5 miles in 7:12 pace

Got my run in first thing because I always feel the best right when I wake up.  20 minute warm-up, stretching, strides.

7 X 1000M repeats in 3:41, 3:39, 3:44, 3:40, 3:40, 3:47, 3:44 (5:50-6:03 min/mile pace)

The cool down was all uphill back to my hotel at the resort and I was about ready to stop my watch and walk up the final half mile of 12% grade slope when Aaron came to offer me a ride after he had finished his mountain run.  I gladly accepted.

We did some Yoga X (I only made it through about 15 minutes before I decided to just roll out on the foam roller and relax).  Then we took a little nap and afterwards drove 30 minutes to Gunnison for some SWEET mountain biking.  Biked for an hour and a half or so.  I was pretty tired near the end, as you can see in the video.  Its always the last run of the day when things like this happen.
