We tried out a new trail south of Denver for our VERY LAST long run! And when we arrived, there were literally dozens of beagles and more arriving by the minute. haha- the howling was out of control!
The trail wasn’t quite as long as we thought, so we had to do a bit of looping and be-bopping around. BUT – we got to that 20 mile mark. The last couple were pretty tough as a lot of trails had some big climbs and descents…my legs were shot by the end!
Fortunately, we went straight to Denver Sports Recovery and got right into the cold tub. 15 minutes in the ice followed by some e-stim and normatec boots, and we were good to go!
13 days til NYC Marathon and I am getting more and more excited by the minute. 2 week taper starts now!
How was your weekend? Any long runs?
