    Week Straight Out of Heck

    So here I am, after what seems like a rest week. Last week we did some trailer camping with the whole family in Yellowstone National Park over the Memorial Day Holiday. Didn’t get any running in, which I expected. This week I led a NICA Utah Mountain Bike League Coach Training workshop and we had a high school graduation. I had to work around my teen racer’s training schedule. We had company and enjoyed late nights and eating out some.

I won’t go into details, but right now we’re sitting elbow to elbow at kids picnic tables holding hands, singing Kumbya, and getting nothing at all done. The Google studies this nonsense was based on used interns (slave labor) and they believed that if they were super productive they’d get their own offices, but instead were let go at the end of their counter-intuitively productive runs. That stress…

    Run Up Tibble Fork To Granite Flats

    I was doing a pretty stiff pace uphill, totally booking it downhill and I did two laps of that. Recorded with Suunto 9 Baro, exported to Stryd, then exported video to iMovie and here we are. Powered by WPeMatico
