Weekending + Stranded + Unstructured


A day run with Jenn! I by no means run within the afternoon, nevertheless it labored absolute best for our schedules so we went for it. I first met Jenn when I used to be coaching for my extremely in 2019 and he or she stored me through assembly me at 4:30 a.m. to get in the ones lengthy runs.

I haven’t had a Saturday run in a long time that didn’t come with explicit distances and paces… we simply went out and ran across the mountains for 11 miles.

I want extra runs like this in my lifestyles.

We were given in a ton of mountain climbing over the 11 miles, and this was once from the portion known as ‘Grizzly.’ You climb and climb and climb for approximately .6 miles and climb virtually 400ft. It harm so dangerous, however the remainder of the run felt truly excellent.

Hoka fanatics. I like the Speedgoats, however I will be able to’t wait to take a look at what Jenn was once dressed in (Tecton X) as a result of they’re a bit of much less cumbersome, and they’ve a carbon plate.

We discovered a stranded mountain biker whilst we had been out… Andrew was once mountain cycling and a department broke the spokes on his motorbike!  He took it in in an instant and fortunately, will simplest be clear of his motorbike for a couple of days.

For any Utahan’s studying, this was once the path we did ranging from the gun vary above the Orem Cemetery. This path had us climb about 1500” and took us as much as the rock pile, all the way down to Johnson’s Bowl, and again up Grizzly. A few of my favourite trails within the space are in this put up!

Path working with Jenn is the most productive as a result of she has been working those mountains for many years, so I by no means have to fret about getting misplaced.

Now not my favourite race day, however indisputably my favourite race blouse.

Andrew is excellent at serving to to carry my toes down for one in every of my PT workouts. This transfer is so insanely onerous for me, however I’m made up our minds to recover at this.
We began Saturday off with early morning football video games.  Andrew was once on name and our video games had been early, so this is the reason I ran within the afternoon… he by no means were given known as in, so he was once ready to mountain motorbike whilst my niece was once over with the children.

He was once so drained that he fell asleep at the driveway.

We scorching tubbed.
And we had Tillamook ice cream whilst staring at TV. So I don’t suppose I’m lactose anymore as a result of ice cream doesn’t harm my abdomen anymore?! Does anyone else have this revel in?

 We completed off the weekend with a while exploring.


Lactose intolerance? Does someone have this drawback? When did it get started for you?

Ever gotten misplaced on a run?

-YES. I used to be in St. George on trails, and we didn’t have mobile phone reception, however fortunately we made it again high-quality.
