Run (or Not): April 10 – 16

Let’s go way back in time and talk two weekends ago. Crazy, I know. It is important though because I had one of my favorite days of snowboarding of all time.

Knee-deep fresh snow
 + awesome runs

+ Chris and Matt = Sweet day of riding

A day of snowboarding in deep fresh snow on Sunday left me wiped out all week. My calf muscles didn’t feel normal again for at least 5 days. It was such a blast. I kind of want more winter now!

After I got back home I had a pretty crummy week of workouts, partly because of a crazy work week, partly due to my tired legs. Time to get my act together again with both blogging and running biking.

*Note to Self: Next time bring tool to adjust face guard on helmet when wearing goggles.

  • Sunday: Snowboarding (In knee-deep powder!!!)
  • Monday: rest – I was super sore from snowboarding
  • Tuesday: bike – 10 miles easy – avg HR 75% of max + New Rules Workout 5A1

    I think I’ve said it before, but snowboarding terrifies me just a little. 🙂 Awesome pictures; hope you’re feeling nearly back to normal!

      Silly girl…snowboarding is fun, not scary!

      I think my legs have finally recovered.

  2. Looks like an awesome time at Vail! Fresh powder in the back bowls of Vail…the most amazing thing ever! When we were out there this year the back bowls were lacking, but in 2009 it was freaking amazing! Surviving that kind of powder should count as about a 14 mile run…or more!

      I agree that it should count as a 14 mile run or more! I was sucking serious wind, in a good way of course, when we rested after each “section” of the hill. I contemplated missing my flight home on purpose so I could get another day in.
