-NOTE:  No weight check... got up early and headed to Leadville to run with Bob and the donks this morning.

8 AM:  5.6 miles averaging 8:20pace.  Donkey jog in Leadville w/ Bob.  Drove up early this morning to take Sugar Ray out with Bob and Yukon so that I can get to know the donk somewhat before we race this weekend.  Sugar Ray is so much easier to run than Action Jackson was back in the day.  This weekend will be interesting.  Was back home by 12:30.  More driving than running but worth it.

4 PM:  1 hour at the gym

Lots of airbike action today.

7 AM:  7.1 miles w/ 1000ft of vert averaging 9min pace.  Easy loops from the Fowler trailhead.  Lots of stopping to take photos of the flowers this morning just cruising a long at an easier pace.  Great morning and ready for the holiday weekend!  FYI-  did you know that if you take photos of flowers with the IPhone it will tell you what type of flower it is?  AMAZING!!!!  If you want me to show you how to do this just ask.  


11 AM:   Georgetown Burro Race- 8.6miles w/ 1200ft of vert averaging 8:40pace.  Bob talked me into racing burros again this weekend and got me hooked up with Sugar Ray.  One of the easiest races I have done effort wise with a burro.  Sugar Ray runs like a dream.  You just get behind him and keep up.  Ended up 2nd just behind Bob.


10:30 AM:  Idaho Springs Burro Race 5 miles w/ 1100ft of vert averaging 8:50pace-  Day number 2 of racing with Sugar Ray.  Bob and I took off in the lead with Tracy.  By the top of the hill it was just the 3 of us and everyone else was mostly out of sight.  Bob and I bombed down to the finish where he was first and I was second again.  Good times.... another $250 payday.

Total Weekly Numbers

Somewhat of a recovery week from the Jemez 50K last weekend.  Was short on the long runs I was supposed to do this weekend due to signing up for the Burro Races.  I planned on jogging after the races to get in the total distance but that never happened.  I should have known better.  Oh well... some good intensity over the weekend so that should make up for the lack of distance.  Bolder Boulder 10K and Murph tomorrow.
