As the day approached, the miles mounted. Putting in our first speed work of our 2015 Bolder Boulder training cycle yesterday certainly helped: 11 miles starting with a Taz run followed by a warmup run before a three-mile time trial and ending with a warm down. Quite the run. Quite the eye opener to how much work is ahead of me if I want to run a decent Bolder Boulder!
Today's run was all fun. Taz and I took off in 29 degree weather, heading east around his ya-ya loop then through neighborhoods to easterly trails and back, finishing in 40+ degree weather and bright sunshine. A glorious first day of spring in Boulder, Colorado and a glorious culmination of my 63-mile (+1 for good measure) 7 day stretch of running.
Let the season begin!
