For Valentine’s Day we did an hour walk up in Park City with some friends followed by a pot-luck dinner. The area we walked around was at Round Valley – a no-fee area that’s great for trail running and mountain biking in summer and cross-country skiing in winter.
It’s a great place and there’s a really great Trail Series held there over the summer. The snow was a little slushy and I was definitely glad i wore waterproof boots. For pot-luck (I had never heard of this before I moved to the US – awesome idea BTW) I made some stuffed mushrooms using http://www.skinnytaste.com (I forgot to photograph them but they were amazing).
I also managed to have 3 (!) desserts. Yum. I love having friends who can cook so well!
This morning was a nice and easy 3 mile run. It felt really good and I felt really strong. Minimal knee pain and the pace felt pretty easy which was a little weird because my pace was 8.27 min/mile. Great start to the day. I even managed to catch an episode of Scandal while I was doing my PT and having breakfast – love that show. It was also the first day this year that I ran outside in something other than my running tights.
I guess it was a black and blue kind of day.
At lunchtime we hit the climbing gym and did 6 routes. The first climb was a little hard but after that everything was flowing. I guess I should feel lucky that it was one of those days.
Luckily for us our climbing gym is right beside REI so we checked out their clearance racks. I have a hard time paying full price for any workout clothes. I found these – Brooks running shorts and long sleeved tech shirt for $10 each. Bargain.
