Busy few weeks...

Thought I would play a little catch up on the blog today while watching the Broncos.  Since the last time I posted a lot has gone on.  I have done 4 cyclocross races and my first Crossfit competition in the last few weeks.  On top of that there was a Tool concert with Timko, couple new breweries, and of course meeting wanker last night for beers since he was in town.  Good to be busy and active for sure. 

US Open of Cyclocross (2 days of racing)

Monster Mash at Crossfit Sanitas-  This was my first ever attempt at trying my hand in a Crossfit competition.   My only goal was not to be last which I achieved with a middle of the pack finish.  I will be doing more of these in the future.  Just a full day of trashing myself in the gym, good times!

And of course a super mellow trail run in Golden today to try and flush out the soreness from yesterday's workouts.  Legs were pretty trashed so I joined the Denver Trail Runners on Lookout Mountain for some easy miles and vertical.



Awesome couple of weeks.  I bounce around between 15 to 20 hours a week of training so still some good volume there even though I am only running 40-50 a week now.  I have upped my game on the bike and mostly in the weight room which is my main focus right now.  One more month of playing around with whatever I feel like doing until the Boston training starts up again... sigh....

Best time of the year

Love fall when running is just running and not training.  Strength training is in full effect and of course, it's Cyclocross season!  Already have done 5 races and with 2 more this weekend at US Open of Cyclocross in Boulder.  I know I have been pretty quite on here lately but maybe I will get around to writing about the past 2 months and what happened at Run Rabbit Run or not.  But like Andy says, "excuses are like assholes, everyone has one and they all stink."

Anyways, onto cyclocross!

Little Bear Group 9/2016

About time I get this group done.  I have been wanting to get this group in for years and it finally has worked out. 

Headed out with my co-worker Scott on Monday Labor Day with the thought that everyone up there would be coming down as we were heading up therefore making the climb up the hour glass a little bit safer for us the following day.  Worked out perfect.  We hit up Ellingwood Point and Blanca on Monday and were the 1st ones up Little Bear on Tuesday morning.  Fun mountains for sure!  52 down and 6 mountains left to go to wrap up the 14ers.  Will get them done next summer.
